West and south facing slopes are going bare.
The snow we have has been hammered by wind and sun.
We had a little of both on Sunday when we skied the Nugget Creek option on High Porphyry run in the Little Belts.
It was a fun ski trip, but we couldn’t telemark as much as we wanted, and the turns we got were tough because of the wet, clumping snow and the crusting.
We had a beautiful day, though. The sun was out most of the trip.
The icy surface made it rough going through the trees.
Unless we get a dump we’ll be on the sidelines next weekend praying for a March snowstorm.
