Despite reports of only five inches of new snow, the skiing this morning was great. Maybe even beyond great, in a stable, face-shot, knee deep kind of way. We found a chute that had additional depth from the sides sluffing into it.

- If this is what five inches skis like, I can’t wait for a big real storm to come in.
