tgifpowder 229023According to Webster, happiness is “a state of well-being and contentment.” That emotional state the dictionary refers to is arguably different for everyone. Time Magazine offers a quiz you can take to tell you how happy you are (or how happy you think you are).

I don’t know much about all that, but one thing I know FOR SURE is that there have been a lot more perma-grins on display around our little mountain town in the past few weeks. A lot less frustration. A lot more giggles and laughs. And I have a theory it might have something to do with this:

PresidentsSunday 276001I have a lot of fond memories from my family ski trips growing up. Sharing laughs and smiles on the slopes, the excitement of trying new things and conquering new challenges. Time seems to melt away on the mountain, parents and children enjoying each other’s company with the pressures of daily life left far behind.

One facet of these great ski trips that I’ve tried to forget over the years is the insanely early hour my father pulled us out of bed to be 100% sure we were the early birds on the mountain.

Now that I’m grown and pursuing happiness in a mountain town, I appreciate those early wake up calls a lot more. Being early is a staple of a fulfilling ski life. Whether you’re a daily powder pig or a weekend vacationer, it’s hard to argue against an early start. Today, we run down a list of the Top 5 Reasons it Pays to Be an Early Bird:

face011This week we have had just about as many different snow conditions as we have had days of new snow fall.  Everything from cold smoke to cream cheese, the variety has been endless.

The one constant;  that we are getting snow, and only snow, falling from the sky.

The snow has come in abundance, 23 inches in the past seven days.  The forecast, while not quite as cold as we would like, is calling for more snow through the weekend.

All of this new snow has allowed us to groom more runs, such as Skid Row and Rodeo.

SundayFoggyPowder 335011Four more inches of fresh snow overnight. It’s starting to sound repetitive, but this now-familiar news is anything but boring!

We’ve been blessed with fresh snow for 8 of the last 12 days, and the forecasters tell us there’s more on the way almost every day this week. Check out the pinpoint forecast here.

Naturally, conditions have been a little bit different each day. Yesterday, the snow was super fluffy and kept coming all day long. Today, the snow surface was smooth but a little bit more dense, and we had a bit of fog to contend with.

As most of our powder lovers can attest, the changing conditions can add even more fun to the day. We choose different lines, break old habits, and find a new groove as we search out the very best turns of they day.

As the snow keeps coming this week, we issue the powder challenge. How many days and in how many ways can you enjoy the fresh snow? [Read more...]
