SNOWGAINE XIX Condition Report

As of Saturday, February 21, 2015, snow conditions haven't changed substantially from the update of February 9. The base presently ranges from 1.5 to 2 meters of settled but very loose and soft granular (lower portions) and powder (on the surface) from the latest in a series of storms throughout the month of February. The only saving grace this weekend for Barb and me was that the extremely cold temperatures last week stiffened the snow pack enough so that, with semi-large snowshoes, we only sunk in about 18 inches, instead of the "normal" 24 inches of the previous two weekends. All marshes and swamps that we've crossed are definitely frozen with only open water at very fast flowing streams. Forecasts are for continued cold (well below freezing) temperatures for a couple more weeks, so anticipate conditions to be relatively the same for the event. We'll post another update only if a multi-day thaw happens prior to March 7, 2015. — Mark Dominie
