Wow! What snow we had. Nothing better than powder!

Arrived at Blackjack on Friday to 8" of snow they received that week (they are closed Tues-Thurs) so we had plenty of powder. At noon, snow starts up with near whiteout conditions...we get 6" more by the last ride up the lift at 4:00.

Snow kept coming during the night. Went to Powderhorn on Saturday for another 8" of powder. We were there early and set to go when they opened the lifts 20 min early.

Best midwest snow I have ever had in all of my skiing and boarding years.

me too. This is first year we've not gone up to the UP. It's the only place where I've experienced power. When you are up there again, don't forget to try the Porkies. Much less crowed than the others and cheaper. I prefer it over the 3 mentioned.
