Today was simply amazing with all the great snow that we have been receiving in the past week. We received 29 inches of new snow in the past 6 days bringing our season snowfall total to 115 inches! Everything is skiing and riding so well right now, that being said the snow in the trees is really deep. My first run of the day was Upper Exhibition. It was so much fun letting my skis run as they floated through the fresh snow.
