so here i am going to school 4000 miles away in vermont. pretty much as far away from alaska as i can get...people make no sense to me. so i'm checking out the snow report at stowe...which is a sick mountain by the way. i love this glades skiing that we don't really get up in ak. but back to the point...the snow report is 'packed powder'. what the fuck is packed powder?? isn't it either powder or it's not? packed powder is...snow. nothing special. what the fuck?
