Just heared from a group of friends who said maybe 10" max at the gondola no way 24". They should say X" since the mountain closed yesterday instead of making it sound like 24" of NEW snow when 12 of it was skied yesterday. Nothing like Marketing tactics in the ski industry!

My favorite was the day the ski area measured snow fall in .25 inch increments:

Jan. 14 Snow

anybody out there ever remember an instance when the disparty of snow fall was like this being reported. 9 above, 24 below, what phenom occurred to cause this?


walt jones 4 years, 2 months ago

Marketing campaign caused this! As ski Corp how the phones did not stop ringing once that message got out to help the fact that skier days are down 11% this year (I believe that was the number quoted in the paper a few weeks ago). ALSO with no regulations to say how much snow fell any ski area can report any amount any time.

We were talking at the Stoker, how it did seem odd that the upper mountain got less, lower mountain got less, and supposedly only mid-mountain got the 24. One guy said it was a weird vortex, and I said Yeah, centered right on the measuring stick. This is the stuff legends are made of.
