When's the best time to hit the slopes? While it's snowing, or after..??

Hey guys,

New boarder here. Started about a month ago, been 5 times to Bear/Snow Valley/Summit and my girlfriend and I are absolutely obsessed. We see that it's snowing in Bear this week (on Wednesday) and want to know what the best day to go is if we want to hopefully board on some powder (all we've got to ride is some hard pack)? Should we go on Wednesday during the snow, or Thursday, after the snow?

Thanks

Rob

Really early thursday morning. Like before anyone else has been there or as soon as the lifts open. Then you will get some shreddin' in some fresh POW! Or depends how much it snowed/snows thursday. If all day then if you get there in the afternoon there should be maybe 2 or 3 inches of POW in some places.

With powder or groomed it really pays to get there early....getting one of the first chairs and making the first tracks in the snow.

Even though waking up early sucks, it pays off when you're the first in line.

bluebird = highly over-rated, it brings out the gapers and tourist. My preference is whiteout puking like 6 inches per hour...then every run is first track besides only dorks need to see when its fluffy goodness
