Many people hear of a Snow Reporter and picture pre-opening laps in untouched powder or perfectly groomed courdorouy tracks, and posting witty updates about mountain conditions and talking to radio stations. Im not gonna lie…it's a lot of that. However, when I walked in for my first day on November 26. My mind was far from powder laps and Turkey. I was petrified that I would key a wrong number in to the snow report spreadsheet or select the wrong lift for opening, or worse, get totally lost while doing the daily snow report over the phone.
