General Comments
Today is a special day here at Meadows. As of 5am, we'd had 500 inches of snowfall consisting of innumerable, uncountable individual snowflakes. There are so many ways to count to 500: childlike, hailing from a base-ten culture, you'd make 50 passes across a set of ten-fingered hands. Calculating like a Maya, raised in warmer, barefoot latitudes, you'd include toes - 25 passes. If you count using the spaces between fingers, such as the Yuki do, you'd need 62.5 passes through your digits. Counting practice is fun, but experiencing 500" of compressed snow is better. Stop playing with your hundreds, tens, and ones and get up here! We'll have packed pow groom across most of the mountain, skier-packed snow and hardpack off piste, and gated terrain to satisfy your longing for incline. Base Ten doesn't really measure up today: we have 135" at the base and 218" mid-mountain. Imagine doing math with Base 135. Eek. Leave the calculator at home, and join us for a day on the slopes! See you soon.
