Cold temps, good forecast

The weather report for the weekend looks pretty good, if you don't mind cold temps. It doesn't appear as though there's going to be any storms in the near future.
  • Friday night: Mostly clear. Breezy. Freezing level below 500 feet. East wind in the passes 20 to 25 mph.
  • Saturday and Saturday night: Mostly clear. Breezy. Freezing level below 500 feet. Afternoon pass temperatures around 15.
  • Sunday: Mostly sunny. Freezing level below 500 feet. Afternoon pass temperatures 19 to 24.Sunday night: Mostly cloudy. Freezing level below 500 feet.
  • Presidents day: Mostly sunny. Freezing level below 500 feet.

At this time, there is a reasonable boot/ski path up the Muir Snowfield, but there have been no new reported ascents.

One team did attempt the Sunset Amphitheater last weekend. I'll post more details when I can get them.
