Where we choose to ski is subjective based on a number of variables, including location, cost, and terrain. At POWDER, we believe the best days are the deep ones that aren't tracked out by noon. With this in mind, we found an M.I.T. student named Gary to develop a complicated algorithm that determines a score based on a few factors, including skier visits to a region, average snowfall, cost of a beer, the number of hot tubs versus number of police stations, and smiles per hour. We're calling this number P3 (or Powder Per Person). —Mike Rogge
