Happy Thanksgiving to everyone. Enjoy the company of family and friends.
A storm is forecast to arrive shortly before Thanksgiving that will hopefully bring much-needed snow to higher elevations. It may not be long before the lakes and streams at higher elevations are frozen over and inaccessible due to snow. Ice fishing is probably a month or two away.
Although temperatures have been falling into the teens and single digits in areas like the Moreno Valley, highs are still climbing into the 40’s and 50’s during the day.
Sipapu cranked up Lift 2, the larger of its magic carpets, and welcomed guests Friday to ski down two open runs with plenty of laughs and excitement. Cooler temperatures overnight mean the resort will continue making snow on the mountain with the hopes of opening Lift 5 and more terrain as the holiday week progresses.

With a La Nina effect forecast for the next few months, the prospects for a good early ski season and heavy spring runoff to help fill our sadly-depleted reservoirs are not looking good.
With so many of the recent winters being warmer and drier than they used to be, you can’t Read More
