Because we measure storms in feet, not inches. This latest storm dumped another 5 feet in the mountains, and it’s now GAME ON for the ski resorts. This latest storm came in a bit wetter than the last one, building a base and covering a lot of the rocks and other obstacles. Note that there are still a few lurking about, as we found on Heavenly’s Face run yesterday, so you still need to be aware of things under the surface.
It’s been a few years since we’ve seen this much snow this early in the season, and my legs are definitely not yet in shape. After 3 consecutive days of skiing powder, I’m walking a bit stiffly.
But it is SO worth it!
