I'm a mid-westerner too. And around here, powder seems to linger in the trees for several days. Grated, we don't have the talent and enthusiasts you get out west or up north but not many seem to venture into the glades. That is where I usually find it at 7Springs.
My epic pow day was last year at 7Springs. 2 feet of snow fell during the 6 hours we were there. It was the most amazing thing ever and the place was EMPTY. Getting home was a bitch
