natural snow on avalanche, paulie's, zoomer, banshee, paulie's ext, bypass, vista way, taft, the hards, with occasional natural snow found in some areas. bumps will likely be set up and packed down by the end of the weekend on the front face trails and extension, bypass already is bumped and is ugly, imo. should be great bump action from right side of rocket all the way down to avalanche for a while.

The snow quality at stowe was great. Wind sculpted into very dramtic drifts 3-4 feet dep all the way down the left side of everything...but light enough so that as you ploughed into a navel deep drift, it would just explode all over you. I had an epic skin up at 6:30 with high winds and really cool clouds blowing by overhead. National, untracked, me and my brother slayed it. Then I blew my knee out on the next run. Seasnon's over for me, but at least I was charging POW when it all went down.

Sorry to hear about the knee...been there myself. Is this a total blowout requiring surgery or something rest will fix? The snow was heavy with high moisture content, great for ski areas starving for snow but hard on knees.
