The national news is focused on one thing this morning, it seems: snow, snow, snow.

Myoko is getting its share as well, with 60cm out there, and counting (and it really was exactly 60cm on my plot out back - OK, two spots at 59, one at 61, one at 60....). We're seeing that continuous, heavy snow that almost looks like a heavy rain coming down. After a year without it, we're having a real Myoko snow day. And it looks like it's just going to keep on going into tomorrow.

One note: a local guide told me about seeing lots of people in the sidecountry with absolutely no gear - no backpack, and certainly no beacon, probe or shovel. That was risky before, and just plain stupid today. When you go off the ski area, you're entering the backcountry, and you need all the gear that people hiking up carry. A fatality we had two years ago, after a heavy snow with wind, was a guy just climbing alone a short way up off the runs and heading across to another part of a resort. He was found under 2.5 meters of snow. Go with a friend, go with the gear. We want you to come back!
