Snow.

Another 10″ of snow is showing on the Gold Basin weather station since 4 PM yesterday.  The Moab Area Avalanche Advisory is reporting a 27″ storm total since Sunday!  That puts us right up there with Snowbird 29″, Sundance 26″, Telluride 21″, Purgatory 19″.  Wolf Creek, as usual, is crushing it with 53″ in the last 72 hours!  Let us know how the powder is if you ski today.

La Sal Mountain Road conditions.

The Moab Area Avalanche Advisory is reporting that the road will be plowed this morning.  The new gate will be closed to allow the plow drivers to safely do a great job and get it clear for us.  Estimated opening time is 10:30 to 11 AM.  Have up there!

Grooming

We have not heard when the grooming program will begin for this season.  Watch our website for updates.

Weather

Clear weather with possible storms on Thursday night and Friday and again on Monday.

Avalanche

Always visit our very own Moab Avalanche Center website for up to date information.  If you find that information useful, PLEASE consider a small (or large) donation.  Also, the main Utah Avalanche Website has an enormous amount of educational material.
