We recieved 20". Not too bad. Skiing around the Grant Grove area is good. The skiing around Big Meadows and the Montecito area is great. The warming huts with hot drinks and snacks are in on the groomed trails as well. :thumbsup:

Cool! Mammoth got dumped on, but I missed it. :( Spent the weekend in Kansas. :retard:

No peaks, no exercise this weekend. Had to take a weekend off. :(

Temps are 58-61! Snow is about gone. I sat out on the deck in shorts and read a book. Going to head down to Hume Lake tommorow and hike the ridge trail. I'm totally losing the ski bug already!

18" of fresh powder in the Grant Grove area. 20-25" in the Big Meadows and Montecito areas. This was a very cold storm so the snow is fantastic! \:D/
