been thinking about snow a lot as we have been skiing in Southwest Montana for
a few weeks now. Several springs ago, at the time of year when snow and ski
conditions were changing rapidly, a friend commented on my use of the term
“chicken heads” to describe the ski conditions at Bridger Bowl. Given
that I was unemployed at that time and had a lot of time on my hands, I came up
with a list of words to describe snow and ski conditions.
