Hmmmm...not so sure. Powder is an elusive mistress for sure. People want to ski it, even if they can't do it well...or at all. I have a friend who travels with me to japow often. He bangs on about the pow before, during and after, but sadly he can't ski it particularly well. But he keeps going back for that "legendary pow". Powder may be an elusive mistress, but she is harsh as well. That's a drawcard for many I would say.
