It actually wasn't too bad for me as I had kept most of my speed up when it turned flat, but eventhough there was at least 6" of untouched snow... none of us wanted to do the run again. Just killed your legs in the flat areas.
P.S. - I recommend riding with a group that includes skiiers as well, because when you are starting to slow down in flat/powder areas, they can give you a pull with your poles. That saved me from having to unbuckle in the powder.

|Argo||Just made 5 runs, 3 up in the woods. There is still plenty of untouched area up here.... I'll try to post a picture with my board down in the snow for reference later today..... giving my legs a quick breather right now. These 2500'-3000' burn when your lapping lifts with no lines....|

|AcroPhile||Lucky.. there wasn't much powder to speak of at Key, just some softer snow, even though they reported 5". The closest thing I got to riding pow today was making some fresh tracks with the girlfriend on a run when they just dropped the ropes mid morning.|

The annual weather pendulum swings back and forth. Record snowfall last season followed by a dry start to '12. High winds shut the Gondola down twice, but we flatlanders can't be picky.......
