    Its f’n hot!

    Guess what these chicks had for thanksgiving!
    Gooble Gooble

    Some pretty impressive mountains all through the high desert. Too bad they dont get much snow


    Conditions in the Mt Charlston region have some avalanche danger.
    There is about a total of three feet and it is easy to dig to dirt

    While digging a snow pack we noticed a weak layer about a foot down that failed.

    With a full arm slap to the shovel the whole colomn failed at the dirt level. There was a layer of sugary type snow on top of dirt.

    Any aspect that was fairly steep was sloughing down to dirt. I believe the sugary layer next to the dirt is the culprit…Not sure if this layer will last all year but if it does it is definite cause for concern
