19″ in the last 7!

Wednesday, February 15th, 2012

After what has seemed like a slow start to our winter, we are finally getting some really good snow!  And let’s face it, we’re not picky; we will gladly take whatever we can get.  In the past week we’ve had 19″ of fresh snow and if you spread that out over a few days, that makes for soft, fluffy turns almost daily!  What’s not super fun about that?  Whether it’s finding some good stashes up top or hitting some buttery groomers, conditions out there are a blast.

Check out this great video from fellow Incliner’, Brad Unglert, and you’ll see what we mean!

See you on the hill!
