Okay, not Jupiter the planet, but on Jupiter in chairlift and in Jupiter the area.
Since the Christmas storms stopped and we've entered into this short period of high pressure (clear weather), our patrollers have been hard at work up there. In addition to several hours over the last couple days, we spent most of today there with a small crew hard at it. Of course we'd love to have all the patrollers up working on Jupiter, but as busy as the rest of the mountain is right now, we can't pull too many resources (patrollers) away from the open terrain. We did manage to get more avalanche control work done, the lift line padded, and ropes and signage in place. The snow safety work has been daunting considering our unusual snowpack this year. We've had to do extensive control work to root out as many pockets (of unstable snow) as we can find.
