Default How much pow is enough?

What would be a reasonable amount of snowfall to get in an 18 day
vacation? How about 22 ft - an average of 14 inches a day? The storm of
the century started when I arrived and stopped just before I left...

Jeez - did the storm intensify after I left? I thought it was 100
(ish) inches over the first 8 days, so you must have got even more
after I left.

Did you get to Mammoth?

Yes, the whole storm cycle repeated itself, complete with bluebird day
at the end. I got first tracks (straightlining) in the sun under chair 4
after it had been shut for 3 days :-)

No, prevented by the storm...

Bought from Out of Bounds in Carson City - a good shop. I took a core
shot in Eagle Bowl on my very first descent with the new board - they
fixed it with a base weld that evening free of charge. Oh, and a lunker
is a derogatory term (like strapper or chainer) which applies to
anything longer that mb4matic's longest board :-)

NOUN: Informal Something, especially a snowboard, that is large for its
kind.

Yeah, the guys in there seemed to know about the hardware, even if the
girls were obviously just hangers-on who knew nothing about the
clothing.

And what's a a "lunker"?
