Weekend Conditions February 3-4

Some of the nearly twenty people that headed up to Panorama Point today

If today was any indication of what Saturday and Sunday are going to be like, Paradise is going to be a happening place.

Wind Crust above Paradise

With blue skies have come strong winds (20+ mph at Paradise, with reports of people being blown to the ground higher on the mountain).

Be prepared to be chilled and remember to pay attention to your surroundings. The current wind is coming from the east instead of the usual west and is thus redistributing some of the snow pack. Combined with the sunshine there is quite a crust forming.
