Bumping for any Longs area junkies who've been near lately.

I have no first-hand data. Sorry. Just looking for area conditions.

SNOTEL is saying 6 new inches since 3 am at Bear Lake.

Good luck up there.

Did you end up going? It looked like "instruments-only" navigation up there near Longs from Flattop. Very, very calm and warm I thought, though.

We decided to ski since it was still snowing pretty good. If you decide to do it and need a partner, let me know. I'd like to do it this winter.
