The seasonal snowfall record for the Northern San Juans has been broken!  A whopping 465″ of snow fell on Red Mountain Pass this season, surpassing the previous record of 445″ set in 1992-93.  There is currently a tremendous amount of snow in the mountains and it is likely late-May and June will offer some of the best spring skiing conditions we have seen in years.

Yes, it’s true, today was a powder day.  And with 9″ of new, cold snow it was a really good powder day!  Actually, for May 11, it was pretty remarkable.  Here are some photos from the “Serpentine” ski descent Jack and I did on Red Mountain #2.
