When both Hole and closed for the season, one must inevitably migrate South in search of lift service and this past weekend presented the perfect opportunity to do so. picked up two feet of last Tuesday en route to breaking their all time season snowfall record of 688″. That was followed by another 18″ Friday night and by Saturday morning I found myself at the base of waiting for clearance after a 5 hour drive from Jackson that began at 3 AM. And well, from there it was literally all time. Just watch the video and you’ll see.
