Nancy Story - Sunday, April 13, 2014

Winter rushed in this year with a jaw-dropping early snowfall.

Must have been the karma of the new Buck chair.

Early December was epic for powder play days...

...but it didn't end there. The snow kept piling up.

The only sunlight came from night lights.

And the flakes kept falling.

Every day there was a fresh white canvas to carve snow signatures.

So many postcard days on pristinely groomed slopes.

Nordic skiers rushed over to the superbly groomed XC trail system...

...where stunning snowscapes hung around all season.

Light, fluffy flakes kept falling, apparently mistaking us for the Rockies.

It was a winter where new skiers greeted perfect conditions...

...and veteran 103 year-old skiers came to sample the slopes once again.

Skiing buddies bonded by the sport, banded together all season long.

Snowsport instructors introduced skills and spread the love of winter.

The infamous polar vortex loosened its grip in time for March Madness...

...with plenty of thrills and Slush Cup spills.

In a season that lasted 129 days, skiing records were broken.

But it's the record 225 inches of snowfall that we'll remember most.
