December 7, 2013, Lk Clara area (Mission Ridge)

Finally enough snow to ski around Wenatchee!  I skied above Lake Clara to the West of Mission Ridge both yesterday and today.  Sunshine and more snow made today one of the best.  Lots of rocks still showing in places and some just under the surface, so the skiing has some risk, but the valleys are filled in and I had great luck.  I had to quit when my toes got too cold.  There is plenty more for others.  video proof:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CALtLuxzy-Q

I returned to the car via the ski area, but I was too cold to take a run on the lifts.  NWAC reported -12F on top and -6 in the parking lot.  Wow.

So happy to have winter back!

I was wishing for facial hair today, so cold.  Hope you can ski tomorrow, Aaron.
