Susitna area Snow forcast
Hey, I was just wondering how much snow or rain they have been getting out around Skwentna, Shell lake, Puntilla. I am flying for the Iron Dog, and was wondering how bad the conditions are.
I was up just past Skwentna on Wednesday. 4 ft of very wet soggy snow at that time with lots of open water on the rivers and plenty of overflow on the lakes. Weather was turning ugly up the valley when I left, so they may have gotten more snow/rain since. It was 45 degrees at the Tal river when we landed.
Puntilla was socked in, and we didn't' get that far. A cub pilot I talked to yesterday has made several attempts to get through Rainy Pass this week with no success.
It hasn't changed much today (Fri) Hiline area it has been raining and snowing for the last three days. The snow is just slop.
