This is the luckiest we've ever gotten with conditions at SV. We arrived in the middle of a storm that left 19" and got another 11.5" at the end, with sun in between. They needed it desperately and I was so happy that it happened right while we were there. My inlaws from Iowa loved the place and we had to caution them that it isn't always like this, but they are happiest on groomers so they would have been fine no matter what.We always have a great time in SV but this time was really sweet. There's more snow on the way, too.
Nathanvg posted a sad photo of the bowls in his Jan 25th trip report. Here's a happier photo of the bowls:
And Baldy at twilight from the back of a sleigh. It was the first time all winter they had the horses pull the actual sleighs rather than wagons (which they use when there's not enough snow).
