This word from Joe Royer, maestro of the mountains and the man behind Ruby Mountain Heliski.  There's been a huge slide above Lamoille Lake... big enough to break the ice and send a flash flood of ice and water through the outlet.

Here's Joe below the outlet.

And here's the slide and Lamoille Lake itself.

The snow has been thin so far, with recent rain up to 9000', followed by freezing temperatures and a lot of wind. This is no time to be cavalier about winter travel.  And STAY OFF THE LAKE.  The ice is broken!

This is your public service announcement for the day.
