  • Packed Powder: groomed surface when 4 or more inches of snow has fallen during the last few days.
  • Powder: 4 or more inches of new snow since surface was last groomed.
  • Spring Conditions: occurs during warm days and cool nights of spring. Groomed nightly, usually firm in early morning, breaking a soft corn-snow surface mid-day and often soft in afternoon.
