It snowed 4 inches the day before we arrived. Before that, two weeks of sunshine and no new snow. But with the snow guns loaded with prime Colorado powder, we prepared for finest corduroy carpet East of Appalachia. The off-piste was chalky, wind effected, and a tad bare but nothing a few lagers at lunch can't fix. Add the fact that the 3 year old skied 5 days straight, you cannot ask for a more perfect family gnar trip.
