As do many people here, I follow the weather all over ski country in North America and find the reporting of base depths confusing. My best example is until a week ago or so Vail & Alta had reported similar amounts of snow for the year, but Alta's base depth was 30 or so inches higher. In this case I know that both report from near mid-mountain. I've noticed similar discrepencies at other areas as well. Why the difference?
