If you're within convenient driving distance and miss out on this - so sorry.
Otherwise, here's to May pow: Today's Powder Pics

Mount Washington is expecting a storm this week, should be below 20° so it'll be nice and light. We've had over 100" in May on several occasions, so no I'm not done. Killington usually gets one decent sized dump in May as well. This weekend I'll have freshies in King Ravine on Mount Adams. Almost nobody skis there, so there's a great chance that even days after a storm I'll be able to nail Great Gully with perfect pow. I'll just have to watch out for slides though. These spring storms can be really dangerous.

Well, the powder is what Utah's famous for. Why not in may?

May 6th powder - 90+ cms(3')in last 7 days, 15" fresh and ten cars in the parking lot. Skied untracked lines until 3:00 in the afternoon right off the lift. There's something not quite natural about light, fluffy powder in May, but who could complain.
By the way, this is my first post here, although I've raiding the knowledge available for a few months. Some great comments and stories on the board, thanks.

I'll be skiing Teton Pass in Jackson Hole this Friday and Saturday. The way the weather looks, it'll be powder - or at least "untracked".

The original plan was to ski corn on Mount Teewinot in Teton Park this Saturday, but with all the snow they've had the last few days, the corn will have to wait for a couple of weeks (or more).

I do recall one July about 8 or 9 years ago when I skied Snowbird on July 4th. Tram and Little Cloud were open, and the weather, while not powdery, was decidedly winter-like. Those were the days . . . (sigh).

I liked skiing without the drought a lot more.

Coldsmoke LOveed the pictures. Colo. is getting the same weather, Loveland ski area closed 0n 5/6 in a blizzard. A Basin on 5/10 was a powder day, you could hike to above 13000 ft. and ski the chutes, steep and deep.

Today the sign on top of Mammoth was even more buried. Keep in mind that they have to plow snow away from there, so you don't have to climb up onto the snow from the start of the stairs, which are there to take you down onto the snow. These stairs are much longer than you might think if you have never been here in the summer. How much snow is there? My guess is about 25 feet on the middles of the upper bowls. Today warmed up big, and it looks like a week of transformation from pow to corn.
