And that’s not a conversion problem from metric to non-metric.

The snow that will follow is set to pile up on top of the already significant snowfall from the past week, which left up to a 40″ in spots across the alps. So far, Monday seems to be the biggest day with up to 45″ falling above 3,400 feet in a single day!

If the 6-day forecast comes through, the avalanche danger will undoubtedly spike and natural slides will be pouring off many of the mountain faces. Beware of mountain closures during the upcoming week as the mountains will be rapidly loaded with new snow that will fall on a melt/freeze layer that developed during the abnormally dry December.
