Snow in the Mountains


Posted by Shawn & Annette in Outdoors, Twain Harte News on March 17, 2012

Wow, what a difference a day makes. Last night it rained fairly hard, but we only managed to get 2.5 inches of rain. Around midnight or so, it began to snow. We didn’t get a lot, only about 3″, but it was so beautiful…while it lasted. It’s raining again.

Things will be winding down at Dodge Ridge, so if you’re going to tackle the slopes, this would be the weekend to do it. The news from Dodge is…

23″ in the last 24 hours – Season Pass Holders Load at 8am Tomorrow!

3/16/12 – 8:20am: In the last 24 hours we received 23″ of fresh powder at the summit & 15″ at the base & expect additional accumulations today with more for tonight thru Sunday, snow levels down to 4,000ft.

All you snow hounds will love that. So, do drive carefully. The roads are clear now, but if you do travel to Dodge Ridge this weekend, take it easy going home. As the temperatures drop on the mountain, the chances of ice on the road increases.

Spring begins on March 20th this year. So, while we may get a little more snow, we can’t stop Spring from coming. Those of you who hate the snow — it will all be over soon.
