Base count: your best bets for spring shredding

It’s just about that time, ladies and gents — time for a “sun’s out guns out” mentality, and some serious spring shredding. It’s been a top-notch season of snow for the majority of North America (sorry, Tahoe, we know it’s been a tough one for ya…), but we were curious to see which mountains have maintained the bountiful snowfall, and stacked up a base solid enough to withstand the rising temps.

Here’s a look at the deepest bases across the country, as of March 11, 2014. Cheers to more snowfall, and deeper bases before the slush sessioning truly kicks in.
