It snowed intermittently throughout the ski day today and steadily afterward for the last 3 hours. I'm not sure how much snow has fallen exactly, but 6 inches seems conservative. The glades at Snowmass are skiing great. Lots of fresh tracks. There's still powder to be had despite the recent warm spell.
It's called the power of four for a reason..... Cant beat all four mountains plus the town!! Many ski resorts may have one mountain that's a little better than Snowmass but that's just it..... Non adventures after two or three days. Been to aspen 6 times and still have trouble as an expert level skier trying to ski everything all four mountains has to offer in a weeks vacation. Can't beat it!
Yesterday was interesting and excellent - the alpine express was best before it closed with high gusts - the "Burn" was awesome - Sheer Bliss was great - high elevation and deep soft powder - lower was heavy - wet and vulnerable to compression stops - saw lots of tumbles when folks were thrown forward - they were smiling and unhurt other than pride - cheers Stu
