Unfortunately if you want powder you have to go where the powder falls. A lot of resorts in areas that don't get large snow dumps tend to be groom happy.
For the east I think you're pretty much limited to VT, NH or PQ if you want to ride real powder more than once a year. Move west and you can have your choice of which TYPE of powder you want to ride on a regular basis...
I'm not even talking deep power. Just like 4-6 inches of the fresh stuff is good enough.
yeah of course what you're saying is true...
BUT the berkshires/nw ct/wachusett average 70-90 inches of snow a year. So there are powder days to be had more than once a year, it's just I've noticed they groom when there's fresh snow on the ground. Anyone from the area care to chime in on which place tends to leave the freshies alone? Which place is groom-crazy?
There's no ocean out west. LOL
