Snow Report 1-17

1:38pm Update

A quickie update for you. Minutes after I posted the snow report this morning, due to high winds the power and internet was lost in our area, and cell service went to zero bars. Under better circumstances we could have got the word out to staff nearby to post the conditions. But being unable to call, and snowed in my driveway the delay was unanticipated.

Once out of the driveway and updated at the resort, I high tailed it to nearby Pinetop to get internet access, and here I am. Upon booting the laptop I have learned that power was restored awhile ago and operations are on.

Lift I (Sunrise) is running and the Snow Cat Shuttle is picking up folks at Cyclone Base for the rest of today, no Snow Cat Pass necessary.

Thank you for your patience and understanding as Team Sunrise worked as quickly as possible to restore power and utilities.

28° F with 5"of new snow to report this morning, yippee! Where the snow tapered off overnight the wind kicked in, so be sure to bring your goggles and neck gators to protect your smiling face!
