First Powder Day of 2016-17

Well, that was unexpected. A mini-storm that was only supposed to drop an inch or two ended up dumping 4″ at the base and 6.5″ at the summit on Monday, Dec. 5 – giving us our first legitimate, small-scale pow day of the year. We’ve picked up 14″ on the upper mountain in just the last week, […]
