Methinks bigger piles = stockpiling = the pile sticks around longer, which makes sense considering the last year of winter weather the northeast had. I ride in the northeast too, I work at a mountain in NH too and the General Manager (during our pre-season orientation) harped multiple times on the fact that no snow = no revenue for ski resorts.

Nooo.....really?
