They got it wrong again...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Yes they did! The radio reported 14" - 18". I'm tired of them getting it wrong.

Actually, it was over TWO FEET!!! A truly EPIC day!
No really long lift lines, fresh snow all day, unbelievable!

Probably one of the 5 best days within the past 5 years in Vail.

But of course- it means that all of Denver will be up here on Friday and the weekend. But today was THE day!

Maybe one day they'll teach somebody how to measure snow...

Did anyone say "It felt more like 14" " ? [img]tongue.gif[/img]

Very nice! Although one Denverite probably will not make it.

I'm sorry, maybe I missed something. Who measured two feet, and with what? Unless you have a flat even open snowfield that you can take five points of ruler measure (averaged), and a Nipher snow guage to capture newly fallen snow for water equivalent, it's all subjective.

I still can't believe that I was lucky enough to unexpectedly get the day off yesterday. Although I couldn't get up to Vail early enough for first tracks, it was over the knees in many places in the back bowls, and definitely the best snow day of my season! Clear deep blue skies in the afternoon, too.

So here in S.E. Wis, where we just got 4", our biggest "dump" and best skiing of the year (total since Nov-02 now up to 11"), we are trying to figure out:

Just what the H&(( are you quibbling about???? :

I feel your pain. Can't believe how dry it's been this winter. Perhaps we'll get some late winter snow as I'm not ready for the season to end (hopeuflly the local hills aren't ready either).

Two feet? Yikes, that's almost too much. When it gets that deep, it's not so much skiing as just playing in the snow. Have had several days like that at Mt. Baker. Easy to break a leg in that kind of snow; your skis get stuck in the deep stuff, and if you fall over there is no shock factor to pop your ski off. If a ski does come off, good luck finding it. Those are the kind of days I really wish I had a snowboard!

Some people complain about anything, eh? [img]graemlins/thumbsup.gif[/img]
