3 Feet - 3 Days

Actually, it is 34 inches in 3 days, but I was rounding. 5" of snow of fell after we closed the lifts yesterday and there is snow in the forecast for much of the day. It keeps getting better.

People always crying about crowds around here. What do they think operating a ski resort is cheap? Get you some skins and a backcoutry setup and ski a 14er. Thats how i roll. I almost never see another skier up there. Untracked powder for miles.

Thanks again to ski patrol! Sure they get rewarded with fresh tracks and a great work environment, but they put their lives at risk in storms like this to make sure we get to enjoy the day safely. You have the nicest, most knowledgable and hardest working patrol around. They don't get paid enough! :) Thanks again to all staff, it was an epic weekend.

....And just as deep as this storm brought..

I find it funny (I am sure many others do as well) that other ski areas were touting the storm total and proclaiming "have you ever skied powder this deep"

...Ugh... yea, every day... just get out of a ski area...

Anyway, A Basin rocks.

I always lol at your snow reports... not because they're not accurate, but because, whereas most reports should be read as "UP TO X", yours always seem to be "AT LEAST X". That 5" report going into Sunday was hysterical. I'm sure there was somewhere it was only 5"... Under a picnic table somewhere? lol. Deepest 5" ever.. Way to keep it real guys. What's the actual "real" count now since 12am Thursday? Has to be 45"+...
