Clouds & Sun at Beech on January 25th

The best runs today were Robbins Run to Powderbowl. WL had a lot of grass showing.
The key was that it didn’t rain and was warm enough all night so there wasn’t new
ice. 37 degrees when we arrived mid-morning and seemed to stay in the 30’s. Some
clouds, brief sun, and snow showers starting around 2:30. 31 degrees and snowing as
we headed down the mountain around 3:30.

Oz was closed because they were working on it. The guys were setting up snow guns
in the afternoon.

Well worth the trip to ski a little with friends and meet new ones. Plus juniors
are free on Mondays. Gotta take advantage of winter teacher work days!
