        A few inches is good on low angle slopes. Two weeks ago on Sunday morning it was great with only 4 inches of new over very firm snow. I’ll take what we get and be happy…

          And the verdict????
          Today was awesome. 7 inches min of fluff on the upper mountain. Granite Peak, Solitude, Granite Chief chair, VIP, all very good. Firm underneath but still very good.

    maybe all this non appreciative comments are a reason the snow gods are angered. 1inch or 100 is better than zero.
