Two months to go

Actually, less. In less than two months, we’ll head out and ski asfastaswecan from Cable to Hayward. If the race were held today, we’d be looking at some of the best skiing ever. This comes mostly from trail reports, Ben Popp and the Birkie webcam which I drool over about twice a day. It’s been snowing all month in Hayward and north (perhaps a bit more coming off the lake up in Cable) and temperatures last topped 32˚ on the 30th. Of November. Current weather patterns don’t look to moderate any time soon.

Two months is a long time, and anything can happen; February thaws and meltdowns are part of the deal. However, you’d much rather go in to a period of warmer weather with 18 inches of snow on the ground rather than brave it with a thin base. So keep up with your snow dance, but, almost as importantly, just dance around for some sustained cold weather.
