Medicine Bow Nordic Ski Patrol
Patrol Log:  Saturday, January 20, 2007:  T. Thibodeau

I arrived at the Green Rock trail head about 10:30 AM.  I skied with a friend on the Libby Creek loop.  We then skied up Sally Creek and made turns at Skinny Dip Meadow.  In the morning the temperature was in the high teens with overcast skies and mild winds.  In the early afternoon the skies remained overcast with stronger winds and the temperature increase to the mid 20s. 

At 10:30 AM there were no vehicles at the Corner Mountain trail head and 2 vehicles at the Little Laramie trail head.  There were approximately 170 vehicles parked between the ski area turnoff and the Green Rock parking area.  The skier parking area had 14 vehicles and 18 vehicles between there and the Snowy Mountain Lodge.  We encountered 14 skiers on the Libby Creek Loop and the UW Outdoor Club avalanche class.  I did not dig a snow pit since the avalanche class would be digging numerous snow pits.
