Snowpocolypse 2021

Post by justiner » Thu Mar 11, 2021 10:45 am

As the impending storm seems to actually be happening, rather than yet another Open Snow fantasy that fizzled out, let's talk about it.

Things are not currently great when it comes to snowpack. I'm sure if you've been out, you've noticed. Compared to last year, it's been extremely dry.

Seems also that there's going to be so much snow, it may best to stay home, unless you have the correct gear,

I'm sure we'll have a completely blinking red/black avy forecast map, soon.

I, for one, am looking forward to a good dump.

Looks like very similar conditions to the storm in March 2003 that caused the major avalanche on the loft that took out the rescue cabin in Chasm meadow.

Sad i am missing my last snowflake weekend but getting stoked for a possible good Couloir season, which i had almost given up hope on!

I plan to stay home and shovel all weekend, maybe work on some snow anchors :lol:
