  1. A Heads UP! I don’t know if this is the correct column to post this vital observation but here it is.
    Take a look at Sugar Mt Ski Area web site. Look at the base snow totals as posted. Then look at the live web cam. You will be absolutely shocked and if you are like me, deeply disturbed. In Dec. the owner reported a deeper base than Co, Ca and Utah COMBINED. The web cam showed nothing but GRASS! The report reported 78+ in of base.
    Look at Jan 2023, Currently the report shows more snow than Breckenridge etc. Pure insanity!
    Why? For unsuspecting newbies, they will go, spend hundreds of dollars and get absolutely nothing.
    I have been at it for over 70 years and without question, this is the most disturbing larceny I have ever witnessed.
