Mostly about a foot all over, but there were definitely some knee+ deep pockets. Pretty funny watching one of my buddies who had never boarded in powder

    Cheese! (Or steeze? Dunno...)

    So..... I have to say this, although Platty is hands down the coolest hill I've been to so far, as far as atmosphere and people, I just have to question the validity of their run classifications. Those were some seriously 'non-black' blacks/doubles - I'm not an expert skier, and I've only ventured down a double once, and it was a cliffline out west....

    what gives?
    Glad you got the powder today and Platty virus has hit you. I heard from their blog that someone was calling it British Columbia Powder and they were are from the West. Black here are not as steep as the west and it is mostly just a way of ratings for each individual place. Usually here 2 diamond just means icy moguls and or just a mess, some places in Stowe migth have legitimate black diamonds that compared to the west, I know they have back county at Stowe like the west but I haven't done it yet.

    She chooses Belleayre over Plattekill?

    I'm seriously questioning this relationship.

    She's never been to Plattekill and has a thing with going to new mountains short notice. She doesn't like not knowing the terrain I guess.
