Good News for Arizona Snowbowl - 15-27" of Snow Last Storm

The Arizona Republic reports the good news from Snowbowl:

Chances are good that the recently dropped snow will help the Arizona Snowbowl and Sunrise Park Resort kick off the start of their season before Christmas.

“It's looking, of course, a heck of a lot better than the past couple of years,” said Dave Smith, director of sales and marketing for the Arizona Snowbowl.

The San Francisco Peaks near Flagstaff received 14 inches of dense, wet snow at the base of the mountains and 27 inches mid-mountain.

“That's the type of snow you want to get a ski area open,” Smith said. “The snow bonds really well with the other snowflakes. It solidifies the base.”

Good stuff. I need to start calling Dave Smith about comp'ing me some lift tickets for my tireless crusade against the Sierra Club, Save the Peaks, and the various Tribes. =)
