Default I'm getting stoked for Breck

I'll be heading there on Sunday and I've been following the weather reports for the past few days and I'm hoping to catch some fresh powder. Looks like I'm going to get my wish if the forecast stays true. Here's a question for anyone.

Would you prefer packed powder on a clear day or fresh powder on a day of heavy snow?

Discuss amongst yourselves.

How about fresh powder on a bluebird day?

Yes that happens in Colorado all the time. In fact if it's pukin' at the resort it doesn't mean you're going to get fresh pow. You need to ferret out the stashes that stay untracked. So first choice is fresh pow on a bluebird day. Second choice storm riding. Third corn harvest. Packed powder = crap.

neither. fresh powder on a clear day. however, if i had to choose between the above two, i'll take fresh pow over packed powder any day of the week, regardless of the rest of the weather conditions.

I personally love it when it snows so hard that even the gapers can't keep up with it I'd prefer it just snow like a biotch all day long so that when you come back the next day, it's still nice and fresh You'll definitely have to do a little scoping at Breck, I've seen runs get opened with 12"+ pow on them and it all get burned off in 10 minutes, I shit you not. This will be especially true now that spring break is in full swing.

But If I have too haha, sun and snow are good

Fresh powder on a snowy day way better than packet powder.

Good luck on your trip, hope you get some freshies

i think this thread has pretty much sealed my plan of not even venturing anywhere near summit county for the next week or two.

No, but I am coming from St. Louis. We're driving though which does kind of suck. We're leaving on Sunday night and gettting there around Monday afternoon. I'm assuming you're coming from KC?

No, just the GF and I, but we are heading from St. Louis and staying in downtown Breck. I'm assuming you're coming from KC?
