There were a lot, especially when riding in powder obviously. the pictures above were the day after they left all the runs ungroomed from fresh powder, so the groomed runs were pretty similar to stuff you would feel at Liberty.

With pow, the sound your board makes when carving through a turn is like a soft hiss. Its so nice to hear instead of the crunch you normally hear on hardpack. Also, turning in the pow felt much easier and natrual. For instance, my wife started this trip bascially a beginner. She would only heelside falling leaf everything and after the pow day, she was comfortable linking turns and going toeside. This probably had to do with the fact that falling in 14" of pow feels like falling into a cloud.

Also, my board base just loved the real snow. I boarded for 6 days straight and i still dont need a wax. After 2 nights at liberty, there is a noticeable need to wax because the manmade snow is much tougher on the base it seems. The pow in Utah was very dry to so when you did fall your beanie/neck gaiter didnt get all damp and wet. It just brushed right off like sand almost.

I am in the process of moving to Baltimore and will be there for presidents day weekend to snowboard.

I know everywhere will be crowded, does anyone think one place would be better to go to? Riding style -I like to make laps down the most difficult runs as many times as possible and stay in cheap motels

I was planning on going to Blue Knob, maybe Whitetail, and Seven Springs and have a hotel room booked in Somerset for the weekend.

Now I am starting to wonder if I should go to Snowshoe b/c maybe it would be less crowded.

Never skied North of Snowshoe on the east coast so all I know is what I have read here.

Thanks very much for any input
