Never have I been so elated to see a 30cm prediction only produce 15cm. It was early morning on Day Three of running a Level 1 Telemark instructor course and we had yet to see a square foot of corduroy.  And indeed, searching for groomed terrain during a 48 hour storm that produced 59cm of perfect intercontinental coldsmoke, had me seriously questioning:  What was I doing?
