As the New Year approaches, overall weather patterns look to be stalling for our forecast zone with a period of drier conditions. 2019 has produced pretty darn good riding, yet the northern and southern end of the forecast zone is still relatively shallow compared to the Mammoth area. There have been lots of reports of near misses and injuries from hitting obstacles across the zone. Unfortunately there was not another “lake effect” precipitation event yesterday in the June Lake area, but it certainly was a welcome surprise and present that hit that area Christmas night. There are definitely reservoirs of snow ready to be mined by the winds so per normal…extra vigilance should be taken in tight, convex, or exposed terrain.
HAPPY NEW YEAR and THANKS to all who have been submitting reports, they’re invaluable to keeping the knowledge rolling and current!!!
