Rick's FIRST Snow Report For Winter 2016 - 2017:

As of Tuesday; November 29, 2016.
I can finally report something significant. After receiving several storms since September, we finally have some snow that looks like it will stay. Starting around November 1st, through today, we have received over 30 inches of snow. 8 to 12 inches have stayed on the ground for the past several weeks and last night we received roughly 13 inches and it's still snowing lightly. Over 50 percent of our riding area has 12 to 20 inches per sno-tel. We will begin grooming on the 12th of December. The snow in close to the lodges is 12 to 16 inches, but only 8 inches of base. There is snow in the forecast for the remainder of this week, but only in inches. The current sno-tel snow depths are as follows:   

    20 to 30 inches        15% of the riding area       
    16 to 20 inches        25% of the riding area       
    12 to 16 inches        30% of the riding area
    8 to 12 inches          20% of the riding area
    4 to 8 inches            10% of the riding area

    Granite Pass            12 to 20 inches
    Lookout Mountain/ Red Grade Road     16 to 20 inches
     Freeze Out                         8 to 12 inches
    Wyoming High Country      20 to 30 inches
    Paintrock Lodge                  20 to 30 inches
    Hunt Mountain Road           16 to 30 inches

Inches of snow does not sound like much, but we have twice what we had last year at this same time.

This week's forecast:

           High            Low        Chance of Snow

Tues      18 degrees       7 degrees        20%
Wed      21 degrees     10 degrees        30%
Thur      22 degrees      5  degrees        40%
Fri         20 degrees      9 degrees         20%
           Sat        26 degrees      14 degrees        40%           
Sun       30 degrees      15 degrees        20%
Mon     40  degrees        9 degrees          0%

Rick's scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being the best:
                Powder Riding: (3)
12 to 30 inches of snow with some base
                Trails: (2)

                Snow Depths: (3)
12 to 30 inches of snow over 70% of the riding area 
                Boondocking: (2)
Wind has blown some snow into the woods, but still very little base
                Cornice Jumping: (1)
Small cornices are beginning to develop. Not enough to land in
                Trail Riding: (2) 
Nothing marked or groomed
                   Overall Riding Rating: (2 to 3)
A lot of stumps and rocks waiting for new ski marks and spindles to bend
