Got another 12" here since yesterday and it keeps dumping. The roads are interesting but the slopes have fresh powder.

I wish I could go. I am in SoCal and very jealous. I hear Mammoth is getting a solid dump too, but too far for me right now. Enjoy the Pow

As of last night there was 37" dumped in under 3 days. Riding has been amazing since I love to ride while its snowing. The heavy snow scares alot of people out of driving up to the resort so there have been no lift lines to speak of. Its not supposed to stop snowing until Wednesday or Thursday according to the weather people. That makes for an awesome 3 week stay here. :)

The San Juans are getting their Christmas dump for sure. It was definitely needed down there. Should be rad for this week at least. Enjoy.

It's been awesome here in CO lately. Saturday was one of the best days I've ever had and it was completely unexpected. They were calling for 4-5" of wet snow and it ended up being 10-12" of just perfect blower pow on top of other recent snow. Amazing day.

Today was great too. The snow was HEAVY. Definitely the heaviest snow I've ever ridden in. It was great in the trees and untracked areas, but if you got into some tracked out stuff you were working HARD. The tunnel face at Loveland was insane. I hit it the first time on my 158 NS Evo and was getting my ass whipped. It was waste deep in snow that I can only describe as wet cement. I went to the truck and swapped out to my 165 Arbor Element and proceeded to have a fantastic day and ripped that face twice more with it. I was creating some massive sluffs on that thing. Each turn was sending a shitload of snow. That was my first experience at any type of sluff management, so that was cool.
