In regards to clothing, our nights will still be cold and much of The Ponderosa is shaded by tall pines, so I'm still expecting areas with snow on the ground. Therefore, though it doesn't look like you will need to pack your full winter weather gear, you will still want appropriate outdoor shoes and potentially a hat and gloves. You may not need a jacket for the day, but plan for a coat in the early morning and evening, as before the sun has warmed the earth and once it drops behind the mountains, it can still be quite cold.
I think this beautiful weather may open up the possibility of trying some of the trails on The Ponderosa during our free time. I'm looking forward to the adventure.
