Sucky joke to go with sucky winter as I sit here bored to tears watching it drip off the eaves.    Right about now MRG is probably liquidating.  Get it?? Liquid.  How come no one is laughing??  Jimski

Well, most of that 20" was low density snow that fell in November and is long gone.

But still, I look at the webcam and think "It looks pretty good, I'd ski that":

Your average Idaho skier wouldn't go anywhere near it will less than 2 feet more of base.

Are you forgetting that our underlayment in the west tends to be rocks and not grass and leaves? Are you also forgetting that most of the time we're simply not that desperate?
