Haha the 17th was my best day too but I was at alpental WA.
I was staying up there because school was canceled in seattle for snow. Got up to the lift line around 8:15 to find 20 something inches of blower at 15 degrees, plus maybe another foot from the day before when the mountain was closed. To add to that, the pass closed at 7:00 that morning and wasn't expected to open until much later in that day... there was about 50 people there and we all got to ski untracked lines from opening to closing
One time i was in park city and i was the only person not throwing doubles
