    I'm laughing over here, you're calling out the guy who skied pow, when you didn't - and you're saying he didn't plunge his ski pole to the ground and find that snow depth was about half his pole length, and the pic shows no grass shrubs or rocks, and he's all smiles? And you're saying he can't do unit conversions, when he didn't claim to convert anything away from cm? Lol ...

    I'm not a very tall guy, I also skin with my poles set to just shy of 120 cm length.

    I’m just jealous that you guys can argue over how to correctly measure snow and what system to measure said snow.
    Man I wish us over here could have such arguments, alas...

    Amendment needed to the photo. Every Oregonian knows that Bud Light isn’t beer.

    I think I have 4 beer coverage just in my driveway. Sadly I have zero beer coverage in the fridge right now.

    We all know extended forecasts are inaccurate, unless they call for 1500ft snow levels and many inches of precip

    Not sure how Meadows plans to open lifts tomorrow when the HRE webcam shows no visible path through the rocks and stumps. Even if they get another 6"+ in the coming days, that's only going to conceal the obstacles and get people hurt before the season really starts. We got up there last Friday for their lower mountain preview day and the coverage was adequate, but that snow is cooked by now...

    the rocks have a nice layer of moss flora on hood. unlike montucky, where grazing a slight chocolate chip baby shark will take down the most seasoned of snow sliders
