I'll be in Vail in 2 weeks. I hope it stays as "lame" as it appears to be right now. FWIW it's going to be 60 degrees at my local hill on Sunday, but I plan to be there anyway.

November? November was already deeper than your base all season... 145" for the year? We had 48" before December. Cody was had to snorkel in Butler Gulch

Although that was November 30th. That is when the snow started and it didn't stop until the first week of March. In fact so much snow so often that I wasn't able to get pictures until January 3rd because of the lousy light. Even then the light wasn't good, but if you can huck your meat the snowpack ain't thin.

I have no idea where you get the idea that it was "bad" out here. Anything but bad. Just not as consistent as the previous four years. Yeah November was pretty much a best until the end. Then again our season goes until June for resorts, longer if you are really hardcore and want to bc it in the alpine. I'll be done sometime in May. Last year the last powder day was May 9th. At least the last one I got.

and it was puking and not very good for trip reports. I am making an effort to post up better quality pics. As many sunny days as we get, we get an awful lot of bad weather too, thats makes for poor photos.

Regardless the snow pack in Colorado was above average until 5 days ago. It dipped to 98% of normal. Warm weather and no snow for almost four weeks will do that. As of this week most places have received over 30" of snow and it's still going on. Utah is probably rocking more. More snow is likely on the way middle of next week after a brief one or two day break. Mountains are still open, powder days are still happening. We are above average again, just like that.

295" and counting at Winterpark, throw another 80" on top of that for Berthoud Pass. No shortage of snow. It's just "average". I'll gladly take average.

I have no pictures because its been snowing too hard to risk taking out the camera but I have had 3 of my best pow days EVER in the last 4 days.

My legs are toast, I got lazy and let the front of my board dive under today causing a double cartwheel. While upside down I was thinking "this is gonna hurt" I got up giggle like a 6 year old because it didn't hurt a bit, just some snow down my back

If 10" followed by 16" followed by .....I don't know what it was today thigh deep in most places.. is average I'll take average every year. I think this year hasn't been typical but total snow is pretty close to average.
