The White Mountain Report: Feb 20th, 2020
Yep, we got yet another good round of snow on Tuesday that lasted all day, dropping 10" here in the Valley and more in the higher elevations. I sure was happy that I didn't have to go anywhere 'cause it took some time to clear it out. For this round I actually had to rake the roof, which adds another hour+ onto the process. [sigh] Regardless the snow, longer days, warm temps followed by a significant cold snap last night and tonight has really brought the ice into focus and honestly we're teetering between 4 and 5 ice axe conditions out there at last. Once the snow firms up a bit I think we'll be at a 5.

Pretty much everything you want to climb down here in the lower elevations is in pretty darn good shape, including almost everything in the Amphitheater for a change. Sure Welcome To Machine hasn't come in, but Dropline is getting done a lot. And for those who want BIG, a drive to Willoughby will give you all the big ice you could ask for. Now is definitely time to climb ice, so get on it friends. Just be aware of the snow...
