Silverton Snow Report - March 2023

More than 40 inches of snow fell in the San Juan mountains (Red Mountain Pass) during the month of February - much more than the average amount of 30 inches. As a results, the snow pack remains above average (about 124% of normal). March is the “swing” month in the snow season: if the current rate of snowfall remains steady we can expect a productive finale through May with plenty of snow on the course come July. The jet stream remains favorable for this scenario but much can change in the coming months. “It is a good place when all you have is hope and not expectations”.

Hardrock Official Print 2023

This year's official print has been chosen - congratulations to Wendy Wheeler-Jacob for her piece entitled "Confidence".

"When a course marking is placed somewhere other than at an intersection, it is considered a “confidence marker.” As someone who has been in charge of course markings and sweeping at Cascade Crest 100 for 10 years, this subject matter is highly meaningful to me. This painting pays homage to the volunteers who help mark the course, and the confidence necessary to finish such a wild & tough event." -Wendy
