Outlook Favorable

Snow should begin in the Sierra early Thursday morning with mild accumulations making for enjoyable sliding conditions. Snow levels will rise through the weekend to the neighborhood of 8000ft and precipitation rates will increase as subtropical moisture is delivered to the region. This will be extremely favorable for further burial of surficial geology (sharks) and opening the possibility to ride some proper terrain along the crest, especially in the northern and central portions of the range. Couloirs and exposed steeps with no fall zones oh please oh please oh please! More snow means bigger and more tabletops, too! Woohoo! All good things. Shasta should benefit from the northerly trajectory which is good for everyone's May and June. Winds will be moderate by normal standards so lift closures should be minimal. Bring your GoreTex (or whatever) and extra pairs of gloves and goggles and go have fun!
