Heavy snow with high moisture content has made the roads very icy at 31. But, of course, it is a winter wonderland. My recommendation is to stay home, unless you're a photographer with no common sense. (I came close to sliding off the road, in spite of 4WD.)

Congratulations on your ribbon. I voted a 9 on this beautiful but very late snow for my area. Great Job!

Mostly, the 36" of snow has melted at elevations below 9000'. Still deep above tree line and in the tundra. TRR not opening this weekend because of drifting snow and icy road.
