Hi Joel- Where did the 8in at the Beav come from? What happened that caused such a deviation from your forecast? Thank you, Peter

Can't say exactly. There was good moisture around, and moisture is like a puddle of gasoline ready to be lit. I suppose some combination of the wind direction at Beaver Creek plus a little luck got a heavier snow band to form there.
