The internet, the radio and your neighbors are all reporting that 15" of new snow have fallen up at Bridger Bowl. You call in sick to work with an Oscar winning performance that would rival Meryl Streep. You load your skis or snowboard and head up to the mountain. But before even strapping in, you must read these ten commandments of a powder day.

The clever writers over at have made a list of the 10 crucial rules to follow on a fresh powder day and dubbed them 'The Ten Commandments of a Powder Day'.

  2. He who finds it shall drop first.
  3. Thou shall keep at least one homie in sight at all times.
