. I wouldn't waste my time skiing anywhere else...just Alta. All barking Bears should ski Alta all the time. Why travel anywhere else?
Sounds like Stowe had some powder in 1944. A letter from my Dad:
"Monday morning I started out going right over to the lift and going down the Lord. Well I had finished two runs and was waiting in line to go up again when it happened. SO what did I do? That's right, I started climbing. On the top was a very selected group of people. Most of them had been on the lift when it stopped. They had jumped off and climbed up. Some of the jumps were 30 ft. and the people that had jumped there had sunk down in the snow up to their shoulders. A few timid persons had to be rescued from the lift by rope ladders."
His next ski letter was from Alta.
