Gore Mountain phone call 10:30 am: Emily is out West, but her backup answered the phone. She indicated that 6 inches of snow fell before precip stopped overnight. I pushed on NCP. She’d spoken to the groomers and they made no mention of anything but snow overnight. Apparently it’s wet at the bottom, because that was how it fell. She said she’d call it packed powder.
I told her she should post it up, people REALLY want to know what is up. She said she’d talk to patrol first, and then update the site.
From the Garnet Hill Website, 9:30 am: “Friday, Feb 26th – 38″ of fresh snow. Trails are open as we are clearing down branches. We hope to commence grooming this afternoon after branches are cleared and the snow has time to dry.”
Email, Emily, 9am: Spoke to Patrol. No mention of NCP.
Email, North River, 1200 feet, 8:30 am: Snowed til midnight then NCP all night after that.
Email, Igerna Hermit, 1100 feet, 7:00 am: “Reporting from my station – 1.06″ ncp yesterday and .61″ ncp all last night ending this morning.”
