Rain is way worse for sure. We get plenty of it out here in the PNW. Actually, if it's raining throughout the whole mountain, it sucks, but it's not terrible. When it's wet, thick, sticky snow on top and rain on the bottom, THAT truly blows. Especially if that damned fog is around as well.

That sounds fun, apart from being soaked after a hour of riding. The softer it is, the better for learning park...

Of course rain is going to ruin your already moisture rich snow! I've actually been out when rain fell all day on a previous 2-3 foot light powder dump. The day after the rain it was still light and fluffy! :blink: Blew my mind! I've got pics...

Not sure where this question is leading though?
