Storm after storm pumped across the west in December and January — blessing skiers and snowboarders with 100+ inch bases, back flips, and face shots.
The legendary days don’t look like they’re stopping anytime soon and February and March are typically deeper than January.
If you want some life-changing pow runs this year, you should probably drop everything and book your trip. Colorado, California, Utah, Oregon, Washington…? Take your pick.
