After three days and 50 inches of snow, you couldn’t avoid it. Pitted. Buried. Trenched. The verbs go on, but if you were here, these expressions don’t do it justice. The sound of whooping was pervasive. Through the trees and off the chairlift, hoots of happy riders echoed throughout the resort. One community, shellacked together with a phenomenal snow cycle, which came in right-side up.
