Is 12" of snow enough for 'epic conditions'?

So I've been going to Bear Mountain and Mt High this year, and so far the hype just isn't there.... its slushy and wet by noon and 90% man-made snow, almost 0 off-trail 'tree-runs' to speak of because they are all bare land with no snow.

But now I just saw that Mammoth just got 12" of snow yesterday and opened nearly the entire mountain. Is this enough to qualify for those epic conditions of all-day sessions and is it enough coverage to hit some off-trail tree runs? I only want to make the 5+ hr drive to Mammoth if these are the epic days I've been waiting for... but I want to save my time/money if its just going to be more of the same garbage conditions I described above.
