I rode 20 different resorts last Sept-May and I could count on one hand how many days I rode without seeing a patch of grass or dirt... North east to west coast last season just straight up sucked.
I'll post pictures of my 30 days in the Canadian rockies last year (and surrounding mountain ranges)... There were a couple days that weren't perfect, but I had fresh powder at least 10 of those days, and great groomed conditions the rest!

We had a great year! I started boarding mid November and my last day was mid May!

Lake Louise had between 8-9m (27-30 ft or so) of snowfall depending on where you measured.
Fernie had over 11m of snow (37+ ft)
Sunshine had 10m or so
