It could only happen on Wolf Creek Pass
The forecast Saturday on Wolf Creek Pass called for "heavy, blowing snow. One to two feet accumulation. Three feet in places."
And the next morning when I checked the ski reports, the wolf had been hit with 30 inches. 30 inches! Unless you regularly ski the Sierra Nevada, you've probably never seen 30 inches fall in one day in your life. Not only that, but in the last four days, Wolf Creek has clocked 84 inches. That mean you could drop Shaquille O'Neal in the powder and not even see the top of his bald head.
What is it like to ski in that much snow?
My advice: bring a snorkel.
