This Is Starting to Get Old

I don't know about you, but I'm starting to feel powder deprived.  Alta's new website has some nice visualizations for snowfall at the resort.  Looking at the graph below, which shows the daily new snow, one can see we haven't had a 10+ inch dump since February 16 and that the small storms that we have had have also been spread out.  December and January clearly spoiled me and probably you. 

Monday's have been pretty repeatable the past couple of weeks.  I come in, look at a dismal pattern, pull up the NAEFS plumes, and see a flatline for the work week with a possibility of some snow the next weekend.  Today is no different. 

Given that this week is spring break, this isn't the storm-skiing pattern I was hoping for.  A few dribs and drabs possible, but otherwise nothing too exciting.  On the other hand, I'm in decent Nordic shape this year, so perhaps I'll just stick to that and biking.
