Update for January 23, 2013
January 23, 2013
Skiing Conditions and Weather: We're sad to say, this was the first week since December 3rd that there is no new snow to report. The weather this week was warm, dry, and for the most part, calm. The effects from last week's high winds are still apparent, and the warm temperatures have also had an effect on the snow surface on all aspects. The best skiing is during the morning and early afternoon before things get too soupy. As always, don't forget the scraper and wax! There may be a change in the weather this weekend with colder temperatures and a chance for precipitation. Snow cover in the area is still virtually 100% and visitors approaching from the east should expect to ski from above the 9,000 foot elevation in Lee Vining Canyon all the way to Tuolumne Meadows and beyond.
