Bogus Snow Report

Full review

Skied a sweet powder day w/ no crowds on a weekend. Was waiting for first chair and looking around wondering where all the skiers were. They didn't show up till around 11am. Got sloppy seconds of powder the next day. My third day the mountain reported 6 inches in the last 24hrs. There was less than an inch at the top of the bowl and they only a flurry or two the day before. Was pretty pissed because I showed up real pumped for some pow with my fat skis. Wasn't even worth waking up early. We have all seen snow reports that call 2 inches 4 or call 4 inches 7. Calling less than an inch as 6 inches is criminal. Not one to bitc#$% but someone needed to call them on it. I griped to the customer service desk about the bad report and they just said they "Can't control the amount of snow they get" Duh!!! All i want is accurate data so that I can plan my ski experience for the day.
