    Curious, was this a ____ storm cycle?

    Once in a lifetime
    Once in a season
    Run of the mill

    I know you guys get a ton of snow but haven't paid much attention to individual storm cycles.

    i heard it was vomit inducing vertigo with -40 wind chills ,the best the bowl can deliver.
    also probably a once in a lifetime storm cycle for most. for 30 yr locals a once in a decade. enjoy it

    Just want to give a big thanks to Djongo! Always helping mags out and hooking up the vouchers. Next time I'm down we'll have to ride and you're always welcome up Montana way whether it be a place to crash or spot in the boat. Had a great day ripping hoback laps and hiking Casper as well as just exploring stashes off AV. All in all a beautiful bluebird day, tram op was even cranking bad religion! Now if I can actually make it back to Montana through the wind fucked land of idaho.

    Here's some super shitty pics from my broken camera phone. Click image for larger version.

    Thanks!
    I went to Street foods for lunch, the tacos were so big I had to use a fork for what fell out of them.
    See you soon!

    Hippie powder and sunshine on 25 short. The 4 of us have been skiing together since the early 90s.

    Save some of that goodness for me. I had hoped to be there with a couple other mags who rolled into town tonight, but was committed to helping my daughter and SIL install a floor in Denver. That and several major car problems and a father in law sent to the hospital. But, the stars are starting to align, the floor is nearly done, and there is a chance I might get into town tomorrow evening or more likely Friday just in time to add to the holiday crowds.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    Rideit - Good luck! I'm certain all will go perfectly well and you'll be back in the saddle by summer.

    Ski220 - Good to meet you and the fellas. Nice sesh time to hang out. We'll try and connect before you roll out. Wow, what a great time to be here. You guys nailed it.

    LLS - Glad to meet ya and happy to help out da mags. What a gorgeous day to play at the vill. Always welcome, mag.

    HMS - Hippie powder is deeper than Cowboy powder, amirite? All is right with the world, sitting in Dornan's after a great day in the hills.

    LBL - crushing the pow daily, nice. Happy anniversary, that's a good one fo sho.

    Hutash - hope to meet ya this weekend. Holla if'n ya need anything...

    Been thinking on the question.

    Cycles like that one happen at any point throughout the winter. We've had bigger Decembers and Februarys, maybe a March. Likely.

    Storms like that one are less common than we'd like though. Skiing 2 weeks ago was about 5/10, now it's 9+/10. Changing the whole area at once usually takes longer. OTOH, we get storms that pull us out of the doldrums, fairly regularly. Lucky that way but it can be nerve wracking.

    What was different for that cycle was that we didn't really get a lull in the action. It kept coming in with only the slightest ripple in the waves. Also it stayed colder and got windier...all factors that make it bettah.

    And the crowds coulda been worse. It's been relatively mellow that way. Not as expected. One old local said yesterday that this was the quietest holday season in 20 yrs. Weird that, eh?

    As I took some of the more epic days off for knee pain/rehab, my opinion is somewhat off:
    Not a lifetime storm for me, but a big one. Top 20.

    Memorable for storm duration and snow quality. (They are not always good. Some storm cycles start great but then suck for days.)

    Yes, once in a season; most likely.
    I can guarantee this, EVERYONE would like to have that cycle over again before the season ends. Twice in a year would be something. Not unheard of but that would take it to a diff level.

    So not all time, but a noticeable blip on the season. Hoping for another.

    Prolly 36" on the lawn around here. 60" shovel piles.

    And adding to Passholer's point - Humongous fractures around the Tetons. Yesterday showed a 6-10' facture for the majority of No Name face. Maybe 75% of it.

    ~~~~~~~~~`
    On 1/16/1974 the temp was 55 degrees. 3 days later it had plummeted to -42. (97 degree drop in 72 hrs). It's Wyoming.

    Wind with this most recent storm created a widespread and sensitive problem.

    Iím going to have to play with this more. That is awesome. Been a phone app Avi website checking guy for a few years, but it appears to be easier to navigate on the website. Guess thatís going to be part of the morning routine.
