Perhaps I shouldn't be so critical of the conditions. Probably my attitude was influenced by the pictures my son sent me from Salt Lake City and the slopes of Alta and Snowbird. Powder there was so deep and light that face shots were the norm. See one of the pictures from son Colin below. I am looking forward to a Utah trip in February. I am hoping for real powder! Go to Colin Rehkugler's Facebook site for more pictures of his recent romp in the powder.
