conditions here are steller! the reports are typically under-reported. the past few days have been pretty consistent with about 6-8 per day. Yesterday (12/20) was epic. They reported 5" fresh, Ira and I went up about 10am to find the sidecountry mostly untracked with at least 8" and many areas over a foot. not the typical blower we get but still fairly light. it pretty much nuked all day and by noon it had changed over to a very light powder. We skied pretty much across from Sundown, including the 2 and 3 o'clcok trees, priest creek, sundown lift line, closets, shadows then over to the twister trees which were proably about the best on the mountain. Maybe due thier exposure and NW facing proximity they were holding knee and mid-thigh shots of light powder. Going up the Elkhead lift, the trees to the right were virtually untracked. These start out fairly spaced but turn steep and tight. the snow in them was knee deep.
It nuked all evening and into the night, right now its 7am and its ben snowing since 5:30. Again, the mountain is only reporting 10" in 24 hours....... my guess is there's a good 18".
