The snowman is calling for snow starting Saturday with a 70% chance. Chance of snow goes through Tuesday.

Morning from Cooke city. The town has been really busy. The snowman is calling for about 7 inches of snow by tomorrow morning. The last couple of mornings we've seen below zero temp's. But today we are above zero and its great. I finally moved most of the snow from last weekend.

AVALANCHE CONDITIONS: Yesterday, Cooke City was windy and snow was blowing at the ridgelines and across faces loading slopes and drifting snow. Triggering a slide on these wind slabs is a concern.
