Snow, snow, and more snow.....

It started snowing on Washington's Birthday and just refused to quit.  From no snow on the meadow we are currently at THREE feet of snow!  The snow plows have been busy and the meadow is now ready for skiing.

It is, however, March 1st this Saturday.  Winter finally came and caught up to typical winter snow depths. The unfortunate part is that skiing season will be very short this year.   The latest we have skied on the meadow was the first week in April.

Once the snow stops falling Camas is favored with blue skies and warm daytime temperatures.  The sunny skies make sunglasses mandatory.  As soon as night time temperatures stay above freezing the snowmelt starts in earnest.  This makes for perfect skiing on corn snow conditions.  One kick of the skies and a long, long glide is the result.  But these perfect skiing conditions do not last long.  Soon the snow is gone and the Glacier Lily's and Spring Beauties make their appearance.  Usually, we look forward to these wildflowers, but this year having a little longer ski season is preferred.

This is the view from the deck and all that snow.  We are booking for May and June wildflowers.  Plenty of open dates for March skiing!!  Don't miss the snow.
