I was expecting a powder day today and we did get seven inches of new snow at the summit. But the quality of the snow was disappointing - in the way that winning the second prize in the lottery is disappointing - a little wet and heavy and in places quite wind blown. Big Meadow in particular was not good. Plus it was windy, cold and foggy at the top and since I was skiing with my wife I mostly had to stay out of the trees. Interestingly the snow was actually drier and lighter at mid-mountain (which is not usually the case) and I did find some nice powder in the trees beside Moonlight and my wife greatly enjoyed that run as well as Skyline.
