I volunteered with Project Snow today. Project Snow brings foster children up to Mt. Rose to learn how to ski or snowboard. I'm helping teach the kids how to ride and shooting a video about the organization. Check it out http://www.projectsnow.org
The snow conditions were a lot better than Sierra yesterday. Good cold snow and fast groomers that you can lay down some sweet sprays. Their base is a lot higher than most resorts and the powder on the side of the runs was still soft and sprayable. Not many people there so you never wait in line, similar to Homewood. The winds were crazy though due to the impending storm and they still ran the lifts for most of the day.
Looking forward to about 2 weeks of snow that's about to drop!
