    Belleayre 3-14-20

    I arrived at 11 thinking the morning sun would be softening the surface from last nights freeze by then but my car thermometer read 30 degrees. Under partly sunny skies Belle never got out of the 30s all day (it's supposed to go down to 15 tonight). It felt like a midwinter day. The gondi is...

    Campgaw- Leap Day 2020

    I bailed on Belle when I heard the gondi was down and stayed nearby for a quick trip to a local hill. Much to my surprise they had most of the guns pumping out fresh all day long, despite being post Presidents Week- kudos to Campgaw! Attendance was subnormal for a Saturday at this usually busy...

    Belleayre 12-18-19

    Today was a more typical early season day than the phenomenal midwinter conditions of two weekends ago. The intervening warmth/rain & subsequent freezing wiped out the tree skiing and poacher access to an entire powder-covered mountain, though the 2" of freshies from last night helped ease the...
