I wish that I could say that the snow finally came this month. It did – but not here. The East Coast got hammered with multiple snowstorms, and the state of Texas experienced record low temperatures including snow that should have fell up north! Of course, we had to make the best of it since we are here until mid-March. Over 28 days, we skied 12 times and hiked 7 times (5 with snowshoes). Most mornings came with single-digit-temperatures, and the afternoons were windy and cold in the mid-20’s. On the last day of the month we awoke to -5 degrees. Brrrrr. In terms of snowfall, it has been sparse for this time of year. On February 4th, we got 13 inches of fresh powder but it was so COLD! We finally had great skiing conditions coupled with blasting wind. Over night on February 12th, another 10 inches fell. This was probably the BEST snow day since we arrived on January 1st. From February 12th on, new snow was minimal. We would wake up to a dusting or 1-3 inches. The mountains need several feet of snow to cover up the brown spots and fill in the top bowls. The Imperial Chair Lift, which takes you to the Summit, did not open up until February 18 for the first time! Only 2 of the 10 trails were open. Three days later, it closed again. We seriously need to do a snow dance. Here are some highlights from the month.
