Snow Science: Finding Perfect Powder

Ask any powder-loving skier what their favorite type of powder to ski is and their answer usually includes 'deep and light.' The feeling of floating through a bed of snow while almost choking to death is pure bliss.
But is there a way to know if the powder you're getting ready to ski is going to be the epic powder you're hoping for? The answer we found was complicated. But there was a constant. We found that the amount of snow wasn't the determining factor, but rather, how light it was. And then we realized the perfect powder day could actually be measured.
