A Few Words On The Snow

Chasing powder at Massif du Sud doesn't provide the amount of bounty as, say, Alta — where else does? — but skiers at Massif du Sud stand a decent chance of seeing a nice snow event once every seven days. On average, 10.0% of winter days see more than 6 inches of snow — enough for most people to have fun. If you're not having fun, then ski faster. But make sure you're actually good before you ski fast. Really good. Not good? Then go to Massif du Sud and start practicing!

Skiing at Massif du Sud is about getting outside, ripping up the slope, eating chili dogs and getting in as much vertical as you can. It's not about big dumps. And that's okay. This place is about honing your skills for that trip to Snowbird or Alaska. With only 2.0% of months at Massif du Sud getting more than 90 inches of snow, this isn't the place to set up your powderhound shack.
