This was the view from the deck on Friday morning. We had a great sunny weekend, but the forecast is for snow the next two days.

Spring snow has arrived at Camas Meadows. The dry powder snow of this winter has been replaced by heavier, wetter snow. This snow is not the puffy powder of winter ski resorts, but it does have its own set of advantages. It is a lot easier to build a snowman!! The skiing and snowshoeing is much easier. You can ski or snowshoe anywhere without worrying about sinking into the powder. But you need to get out earlier to get the best conditions. By afternoon, the snow may warm up enough to begin sticking. Then is the time to move the lounges to the sun.

Our last guests built a great little sledding run for the smaller kids right off the deck.

The weather is also much warmer. The days are in the 40's and 50's while nights still drop below freezing. In the sunshine, it feels much warmer. With daytime temperatures that warm, the days of winter are numbered. Our guess is that there will be adequate snow for skiing and other snow sports through the middle of March.

Book now for that last bit of winter fun. We are open for the last weekend in February, the 24th and 25th. The first weekend in March is booked. We are also open on weekdays if you can take advantage of the stay two nights get one free offer.
