Vail closes like the 14th I think, Breck is the 19th or 20th. I've had it dump 14 inches that late in the season and give me a pow day at A basin.

Toecutter In the PNW, with the wet snow, sometimes you have a 2 hour window at most before it gets all tracked out. That's why on big dump days there will be a string of cars heading up an hour or more before the lifts open. I head up early then buy a cup of coffee and get ready up at the hill. People start lining up at the lifts 30 minutes or more before opening bell, so suit up and line up.

Days like today however are different. We got ludicrous snow at 16" in 24 hours without any sign of it letting up, and I was on the first chair. In this case there was thigh-deep pow (with the drifting) and getting first tracks wasn't necessarily a good thing because you'd get stuck. Second run down I thought I could make it through some trees and ended up spending 20 minutes swimming out.

You live in New Mexico. There is definitely backcountry turns to be had there. Good quality Backcountry turns.

Shhh the backcountry is dangerous and way too much work. Ride a lift and save yourself the hassle...

ev13wt Real powder in the alps:

On groomed runs, about 4 runs.
Off piste about 4 days if the snow is right and its cold and stable temps
