Pretty photos thanks for sharing. So that predicted 4-6 footer became 8-10 inches?

No, Porkies has 4-6 feet (and counting) up high. We (hurons) have not gotten nearly as much. We are at 20-30 inches with more on the way this week. Once the LES starts coming out of the north more than the wast, we will get ours!

Lots of new snow up this way. It's COLD so the fresh, deep, soft snow is very slow. As a result, low-angle is not happening and there's just not enough snow for the steeps yet. Great for climbing with scales though.

Snow gauge says it's still relatively thin.There's close to 2 feet of LES but there's no base, so it's bottomless, even on fat skis. We have a much needed warm-up expected to arrive this week followed by a good storm. That should whip things into shape for next weekend.

Looking down towards lake Superior. There's lots of blow-downs, branches and other debris lurking just under the surface, so it's still pretty thin.

Simply lovely. LES is such a cool thing.
