Skiing in the Rain Pow

By

The temps were a bit warm today at the Bird. It felt like a Squaw Valley kind of day with wind and rain mixed with some snow. A few inches of wet stuff lat night smoothed out the hill and made for some good skiing.  The poor visibility and wet feel kept the lift lines very short for an MLK weekend.This was one of the only days I have ever seen it rain at Snowbird during the season. It was actually only raining at the very bottom of the hill. About 500 vert above the bypass we were looking at all snow. Wet snow for sure, the type I call rain pow. I first ran into Rain Pow in the East Coast in High School. It is an interesting monster that is actually better than it sounds. This season I have seen it in Mt. Baker, Squaw Valley, Revelstoke and Snowbird. I guess it is the season of Rain Pow.
