Heck yeah it snows where I live. Just 20 minutes from a Pass that averages over 450 inches per year.

So this past week we have received around 11 feet of snow at the Pass. Like Tahoe, the skiing is freaking awesome.

Take a look!

Dude 11 feet is crazyy!!


Sure is bro. Take a look at this post from the Northwest Avalanche Center:

"An active weather pattern over the past week and a half brought copious amounts of new snow to most areas west of the crest at low snow levels bringing 5-10 feet of snow." My Pass got the most at 11 feet.

Nothing but powder skiing. The link actually has two old vids but the one to the far right is from Sunday last as it started and kept coming through yesterday.

Speaking of Avys, take a look at the below vid from one of our local mountains. Around 5 mins in as a group of skiers are traversing out, a sympathetic (meaning natural) avy occured burying a woman. Its amazing real time video.

We get some snow, but usually it's only a few inches, rarely more than a foot.
But with Kansas so flat, there's nothing fun we can do with it.
Also with no hills around the winter weather just blows in from Colorado and points north, making it crusty, sleaty, and just plain nasty.

But, then again, we also get blessed with more than a few freak warm winter days, which helps us get thru til spring.
Takin' it in stride!

Wishing you a winter filled with those freakish winter days. One question though where does all the water go since its so flat out there? Hope your having a splendid holiday season and look foreword to seeing you down the road.
