Not when discussing a ski resort in Europe.

Usually referred to in the case of rain.
The problem with your casually adopted contrarianism is that, amusing though it may be, it’s so easily rebuffed. Google ‘bucketing down snow’ and you get at least two results from Australian websites on the first page alone

Let it go Steve, let it go.

Anyway, we always say it’s puking down when it’s snowing heavily.

Utah had 5 feet last week.
It needed it.

Now around 2m at the bottom and almost 3m at the top with a metre forecast in the next 5 days. Quite the start for a European winter. Altitude is key though. The snow line has been high where we are headed. Warm temperatures are good news for stability, on the plus side.

I'm glad we aren't going to Honshu this time. It's pretty dire there. Warming slightly where we are headed but altitude will protect it.

Few runs yesterday to warm up. Hardpacked pistes but no ice. Some very impressive inbounds off piste, but fairly critical and very visible.
