Snow Report for the weeks of March 1 to March 15, 2014

Dear powder friends

Sorry for that I was not able to post a snow report last week, unfortunately I was busy skiing deep and light powder. The past two weeks have been incredible, lots of new snow, blue sky and sun. We got it all. Stability of the snowpack was for most of the time good and at times considerable. Mostly during a big storm we experienced a short cycle of a less stable snowpack. During the nice weather days the snowpack stabilized quickly and we have been able to ski long and fun ski-runs in the trees and in the alpine. This week we also went to the Mt. Moloch Chalet, always a highlight of the week.

The snowpack is big at the Durrand Glacier Area. The glacial crevasses are well covered and filled in, the big ski-lines in the alpine are in top shape. This is why this year we will again stay open until end of April, experiencing the truly amazing April powder in the many east, northerly and west aspects of the alpine. Experiencing how the snowpack is becoming super strong and will gives us the special opportunity to ski the best lines in the area in light powder.

We still have openings April 19-26, the skiing will be fantastic!

See you soon
