The rumors are true. Winter is off to an incredible start here in the PNW. A series of stupendous snowstorms blanketed the mountains. If I didn’t know any better, I’d think it was mid-January. This last week we’ve had a blast skiing in-bounds at Crystal Mountain, with a taste of surrounding backcountry. Check out a few photos:
Yeah, feel jealous. Not too much though, it’s gonna rain several inches this week, with freezing levels up to 8,000 feet. I hope there’s some snow left.
