It looked bleak in December but this year has been epic for AZ skiing. The last storm dropped 36" and we are skiing a 70" base. Snow total so far is 172" (most falling since Dec 21). The video below is from the storm last weekend on 2/9. It snowed all day and was filling in tracks every run. Trees were prime and people were saying the snow is the best its been since 2010 season.
