Snowbird After a 35 Inch Snowfall

   It is hard to comprehend 35 inches of new snow over about a 24 hour period.  Snowbird today offered some magnificent powder skiing.  We were on the slopes early today and there were many untracked areas available all over the mountain.   This old geezer was able to get some first tracks on intermediate terrain that had been groomed before about 10 more inches of snow fell.   In some areas I encountered close to two feet of powder.   For the big boys like my son Colin they were into areas where the snow was over chest deep.   Colin and his buddies had a splendid day exploring the far reaches of the area for the entire day from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM.   By noon I was exhausted so I spent several hours recuperating before a final afternoon run.   More snow than these old legs could handle.
