This is definitely a 'cool story, bro' post, but I honestly just have to proclaim my excitement. I took the day off work today due to stories of a major storm rolling through our area last night. My decision paid off as I was one of only 10 people to plunder the fresh 8 inches of powder that blanketed our local ski hill. I've never skiied powder before, and never really understood everyone here raving about it (don't get me wrong, your stories and pictures look awesome, just didn't have any first hand experience). I had no problem adapting to the change in technique, it came pretty natural (might be different when skiing huge dumps out west I'd imagine). Anyway, I'm absolutely stoked and can't wait until my next gift of powder.
Anyone else care to share their 'first powder day', or are they as common as days with sunshine for some of you ?
