Both Mountain High and Mt. Baldy report 2-3' of new snow this morning. If you can get to either resort today, I'm guessing you'll find reason to enjoy yourself. Snow Valley reports 24" of new snow, but Highway 18 is basically shut down right now, with the dreaded chains-on-all requirement. Mammoth says just under 4' of new snow fell in the last 24 hours, with 5-8' reported over the past four days. Gotta love those insane Pacific storms. Looks like this one has locked up a stellar backcountry season for all of us well into May-June now. Nice!

About SierraDescents

When there is snow, SierraDescents is Andy Lewicky's California backcountry skiing and mountaineering website. Without snow, sierradescents becomes an ill-tempered hiking and climbing blog.

Pray for snow.
