The White Mountain Report: Feb 18th, 2021
So we had some weather come through earlier this week that I know was a disappointment for many. A good friend complained that "Texas got more snow than we did"! LOL While I guess that's true, this most recent one was only part of a series of storm systems that have dumped a fair amount of white stuff in the Valley and in the mountains.

Selected Ice Conditions effective February 25, 2021
It really does feel a little more like mid-March than late February right now, tho this really has to do with a couple of sunny days with temps in the 40's. Of course that's not really a bad thing, as long as it stays cool at night and we don't get any rain. But stay tuned... In general tho the ice is in good shape right now, with a few exceptions where the climbs have been in full sun over the past couple of warm days. The thing to be aware of is that there are places where the ice is punky and snowcone-like or has become undermined. But as long as you are paying attention, you'll be OK. Frankly early to mid-March is really my favorite time to climb. There's nothing like those longer days, more moderate temps and plastic ice. And the occasional warm day when you can get out on some warm early-season rock! What's not to like?
