Sometimes insanity pays off—in this case, checking the snow report every single morning, expecting the results to be different. After weeks of nothing, a chance of snow in the forecast told me that just maybe the ski hill had received something throughout the night that the city of Bozeman had not.

At first glance, it seemed a mistake had been made. A grey day in town with no accumulation and the snow report was touting 23 new inches overnight? As unreasonable as it sounded, anyone who has spent a few seasons skiing Bridger Bowl knows that these kinds of anomalies are what make our home resort special. And sure enough, it was exactly as stated—the best powder day in a long time.

By the end of Tuesday there would be 27 inches of snow on the ground and it continued to fall for the next three days, delivering powder days into the weekend and leaving us with a storm total of 52 inches.
