Rain without a doubt. Sun means corn, and a corn harvest is almost as good as a powder day.

I don't get the agricultural reference, but it seems to me that rain is worse indeed.

Rain

Honorable mention: Ridiculous fog that causes vertigo, maybe you PNW guys deal with it better than me.

Rain is way worse for sure. We get plenty of it out here in the PNW. Actually, if it's raining throughout the whole mountain, it sucks, but it's not terrible. When it's wet, thick, sticky snow on top and rain on the bottom, THAT truly blows. Especially if that damned fog is around as well.

That sounds fun, apart from being soaked after a hour of riding. The softer it is, the better for learning park...
