Primo Conditions Greet Me on My First Day Back
02.4.13 10:16 AM
What a great way to come back to work! I was on vacation all of last week, and like most people I was sort of dreading having to get back to the daily grind. It's only natural after being off for 9 days in a row, especially considering the fact that I was snowboarding in knee to chest deep powder everyday last week in Utah. However, I was pleasantly surprised this morning to see a blanket of white across the High Country on my drive up from Davidson. I knew that the ski areas had been seeing snow the past few days, but I didn't think Boone would have as much snow on the ground as it does right now. It's definitely helping my case of the Monday/first day back from vacation blues.
I was kind of out of the loop all last week about what was going on here. The place I was staying at didn't have the greatest of internet connections. I knew that it rained pretty hard on Wednesday and it was going to snow a little this weekend. That rain appears to be a distant memory now as the SNOW REPORT page is looking pretty freakin good! The system that brought snow over the weekend definitely over-produced. Just about everyone has seen snow over the past several days and conditions are by far the best they've been all season. I'm definitely stoked to see this! The current NWS snow depth map below shows a good swath of snow across the Southern Appalachians.
The cams are looking mighty fine as well this morning. Each one you look at is showing either some sweet looking corduroy or a combination of manmade/natural powder. Dang, I really am glad to come back to conditions like these! A quick word about the cams...I guess they were going down every so often last week? I had a few emails about them and I think I already figured out the problem and rectified it. I don't know what it is, but I feel like whenever I go on vacation something happens with them. They should be good to go now though and are there for your viewing pleasure.
I've got some catching up to do so I'm going to quickly go over what's happening at the ski areas by state. Here we go:
Everyone enjoy their beginning of the week!
