Probably the best snow I've ridden. So light you couldn't stay on top of it, but it didn't matter as long as you were on a steep enough line you could just point it and push through it.
Lucky, yesterday we had over a foot of fresh powder in whistler but it was heavy as hell. The temp was at freezing so it was horrible. Everyone on the mountain was pissed. We only did a half day, rode in rain for some of it. Pretty disappointing to end our trip on that. Now hanging out in salt lake until midnight when we fly to Detroit then to grand rapids....tomorrow is going to suck. Hope to get a sunny day riding back in Michigan still this year.
