It's the product of a convergence of sun, snow and exposure. And it seems fitting that it shows up each spring, when the weather warms and the clothes come off. Corn snow treats you like your first girlfriend: Everything you do is perfect. With every slight shift of weight you become a world-class racer—every inch the sultan of snow. What skill! What grace! What control! Go ahead, check out your shadow as you jet down the slope. You'll like what you see.
