I’m not saying ski resorts lie, buuuut….

OK, we all know the term ‘packed powder’ is bullshit a contradiction and a joke to most. It’s simple really, if it’s packed it’s not powder. However, was looking at the weather for a few Tahoe resorts today and saw the below. I’d have to say this report by Heavenly takes the cake. No new snow, last snowfall 5 days ago, however the surface conditions are powder. C’mon up, enjoy the epic pow, and have a $9 beer!

Epic pow brah!

Epic pow brah!

    good point on the whole “packed powder” bullshit! i live in telluride,co and if anything the “locals” consider snow conditions either- powder 8″+,”dust on crust”-4 inches or less and “hard pack”, “boney” or “crusty”!

    peace, hope yall had a good winter!

    I’m with you and your naming system Mike! That or there’s ‘powder days’ and ‘days you’ll probably stop and eat lunch’

    packed powder is just another way of describing Cascade concrete. Any thing that is packed is not powder.there’s no other way to put it.
