"Red sky at night--Sailor's delight, but red sky at morning--Sailor's take warning" is a phrase even us mountain-locked snow-lovers live by. Just like a rough sea, red sky brings change of weather to the majestic mountains. Not only do we revel in the beautiful sunrise, we eagerly look forward to what our gorgeous 'morning coffee' has in store for us.

Another small dusting of new snow did wonders for our conditions this morning. I made my way over to Priest Creek and took my first cruiser run down High Noon to West Side. No longer was the snow crusty, but instead like velvet under my feet. I took advantage of having the runs to myself arcing from run's edge to edge making the most out of the hill and my leg muscle's capabilities.

As the morning progressed the wind made it's presence known coming from the Southeast. Perfect! Keep your fingers crossed that the snow in the forecast for the next few days in the same storm that just hammered the Lake Tahoe ski resorts with the white blower snow we all live for!

I'm doing my snow dance and hoping to report on an epic Steamboat Champagne powder day next week!

Take nothing for granted and spend a moment of your day sending positivity to Haiti...
