EXACTLY: 1,243,912.000345 per 3footx3foot area. No more no less. This is a study that I have been performing for the past 35 years just waiting for someone to ask the question. Don't question it because rocket science went into the calculations. Scott

I would prefer that it stop snowing by the time I go riding.
I like 3-4' of light fresh snow and a 2000'+ of steep hill and I'll have a great day.

This is accurate, I ran these numbers by the snowflake department in a nearby university, and they have been verified as correct.

I just got out the ole' calculator and it seems to be right. After calculating the pressure of the air around, the force of the gravity, and all the other factors like dirt, wind speed, snow density, and temperature, you can figure it out quite easily how many snowflakes it takes. Simple math if you ask me.

Ok so if I want to ride a mile on 1' of snow? I divide by three and multiply by 5280. This is no good 18scott my sled is not 3' wide I need 48" what is wrong with you? I would have to get a rake and spread it out first I guess.

Just think on a 300mile day just how many little snowflakes I use and abuse with a grin from ear to ear.

Wry,
The trick on the 3' wide snow streak is to not let your skis touch the ground. Just keep it pinned, OK at 90 when your skis touch you might have to stop and do it again. At this rate it would take me 75 gallons of gas for that 300 mi ride. But boy would those snowflakes be abused.
