A final 16″ of snow fell on the mountain Sunday with the final round of snow showers that moved through with the big storm. That brought the weekend storm total to 52 inches! Right on par with the 3-5 feet we were expecting from this storm from bottom to top on the mountain.
Monday – Sunday:
Monday we will see clearing with partly sunny skies becoming mostly sunny later in the day. It will be cold with highs continuing to be in the 20s. The winds will pick up a bit up top from the north, with gusts up to 30+ mph possible Monday afternoon. That will make it feel even colder!
