I've been posting these reports on that other site for the past few weeks, I know a lot of you flat landers are looking to head this way for the holidays, so I thought I would post some weather conditions for y'all to get an idea of what's going on. These readings are taken  at the north end of the I.P. reservoir, I cant attest to conditions at West, but you'll get the general idea. With that said: 

 

Snow Report for 12/20, It's currently 18 degrees calm winds, and moderate to heavy snow falling. When you look at the gauge, keep in mind that it's measuring at 6300', generally you can take that number and multiply it times 2.25 - 2.50 and it'll give you the depth up high (above 8K')

Snow Report for 12/25... Currently around 20 degrees, calm winds, and light to moderate snow falling. We picked up about 4" at the beginning of the week, and another 8"+ since Friday night. Closing in on that three foot number
Please keep in mind when you come up here to ride, to not be one of the 10%'s and wander into the closed areas. Lot's of people worked real hard to keep Mt. Jefferson open, it's well marked, don't be that guy, it's too well marked anymore to make excuses

Snow Report for 12/26...Currently 15 degrees with light to moderate snow falling, a few occasional gust, probably blowing up high. Been snowing pretty steady since my last report, another six inches +, I'd say at this point we can call it pretty near a** deep at 6300, it's gotta be getting stupid deep up high.
