La Sal Mountain Snow Report – Saturday, February 18th 2017
Plus Colorado River Snowpack Information
Gold Basin received a trace of snow this morning. Currently Geyser Pass Snotel reports 143% of average SWE. The NWS forecast discussion this morning specifically mentions the LA SAL & Abajo mountains as being favored by this system. Up to 18″ of snow is forecast for 10,000′ along with a winter weather advisory. Be careful up there!
The track was groomed since 2/17/17. Challenging wax conditions exist, so stop by the shop for advice and a full selection of Swix tuning supplies.
The Geyser pass road has not been plowed recently, but is passable. Snowfall forecasts this weekend could change that though, so travel prepared with a shovel, tow strap, food, and water!
Looking good out there! Looks like another high water year!
