Batawa is a great beginner hill, and you can't beat this deal. I purchased two tickets for myself and my boyfriend as a Valentine's Day gift and he was thrilled. We both hadn't been skiing in years, so it was a great hill choice for us to get back on skis at a gentle pace. You can easily migrate from the easiest beginner hills to Old Smokey (their double black diamond) in the course of a day if you have any prior skiing experience. The staff were wonderful and very helpful and really knew they stuff. All in all it was a good deal and a great date, but if you are a regular skier this won't be any challenge for you and I risk to say a little boring. If you have kids you want to introduce to skiing or are taking friends with limited experience, this deal is for you, but if you ski often I would skip and look for a more challenging venue.

Traits of Good Snow: The Science Behind a Perfect Powder Day

It’s always possible to ski or snowboard as long as there’s snow on the ground, but what makes the best snow? Read on to learn the factors that make perfect conditions on the slopes.

Champagne snow. Blower powder. Gnar pow. Skiers and snowboarders have no shortage of poetic colloquialisms to describe the ethereal quality of freshly fallen snow. Light, fluffy powder is coveted because it makes people feel as if they’re floating down the mountain, a snowy mist erupting from their skis like the spray from a shaken bottle of champagne. Despite its heavenly quality, good powder isn’t just caused by angels spilling a box of packing peanuts—there’s hard science involved, too.

To quantify the caliber of snow powder, skiers use the snow-to-liquid ratio, which compares the depth of a layer of snow to the depth of water the same snow would take up if it melted. The higher the ratio, the less water contained in the snow, and the lighter the powder. For average snow, the ratio is about 10:1—meaning 10 inches of snow would melt into 1 inch of standing water—and the ratio for the fluffiest, most perfect snow might be as high as 30:1. Although the snow-to-liquid ratio can be hard to predict, feathery powder is most likely to fall on a day that meets two conditions. First, it must be quite cold (ideally, between 0 and 10 degrees at the summit or higher) so as to foster the formation of dendrite crystals in the snowflakes. Second, there should be little to no wind, as gusts stronger than 15 miles per hour can cause the flakes to collide as they fall, thus ruining their natural volume and packing them more closely together.
