The Northwest finally transitioned out of the six week, mid-winter, high pressure hole and back to a more normal state of tree-well paranoia.  Over the past week, a storm system came in multiple waves with fairly light and very deep snowfall, 40 inch in total.  Welcome back powder boarding.

This season, the installation of Big Rainbow was postponed for whatever reason. (The reasons behind the park bosses’ decisions may never be known.)
