Given that a favorable snow report brings in business, there’s obviously a temptation for a all ski resorts to be a little careless with the truth. We still laugh about Red’s 50cm powder day that wasn’t, though to be fair I can also recall a few days when 10cm of fresh snow went unrecorded. Today I woke up a little later than usual, to a misty morning and about 1.5cm of wet snow in town. I was pleasantly surprised that the snow report advertised 8cm overnight, and had to rush to make first chair. Unfortunately it was damp and misty to the top, with no more than 2cm of heavy wet snow. Guest Services suggested that wind might have piled snow up against their recording stick, but I just laughed and headed home for a more substantial breakfast.
