Well who would have thought that in one week you guys in the UK would have more snow than here in Winter Park Colorado??? Well until today that is. We had about 4 inches on the mountain and it was awesome.
After a week of sunny blue skies and hard conditions finally it arrived. The best bit is that there was hardly anyone here to enjoy it. After a very crowded resort on Saturday everyone left before the snow started. It has been snowing a bit this evening so up on the mountain we should be in for another great day. By the way just to whet your appetite Winter Park powder is the driest champagne powder anywhere!! I ride a 53 board out here and you never have any of that energy hanging over the tail stuff-straight upright stance is all that is required.

Good snow base with the occasional patch of ice and terra firma now pretty well covered. Moguls are very well excavated and in some cases a metre deep. All lifts running although the Panaramic was closed this afternoon due to high winds. Not a problem if you stay in the lee of the mountain.

Keep you posted.
