I'm probably exagerating because I'm used to east coast skiing, but Keystone was freaking epic today!!! There was 3-4 inches of fresh when we showed up and it dumped 6 on us while we were there. I was praying for I-70 to get closed so we'd have an excuse to stay another day (my friend has to work tomorrow). It was still snowing when we left, and the drive was a little dicy, but they kept the damn road open!

And in other news... I can do S-turns!!! Woohoo!!

I think the word EPIC should only be used (if you are out west) 24" and up. If you are on the East coast. A well groomed run, temps in the 30's and sunshine. You Rockie Mtn boys have it made.

yeah, if you aren't in pow over your knees, it isn't epic.

I'll say! 10" overnight, OK, then maybe you start to have something to talk about. 3-4 inches is nothing. It's not a powder day if you can feel bottom on each turn. "Epic" is reserved for a minimum of 30".

Since we are on the subject of epic days. What is your biggest day..
My most outrageous day was in B.C. Heli skiing.. 1st and only time skiing in chest to over your head stuff. That was 14 years ago and I still remember it like it was yesterday.. I have also had a had full of great days at Alta and the Bird.
Then came marriage, kids and now Northeastern boiler plate.

The best place by far in the NE for epic days is Jay. Iv'e had quite a few chest deep days there over the years. If you average their annual snowfall from the first day of winter, to the last, it comes out to someting like 4" per day. Not bad for the East, and better than a lot of places out West.
