There’s No Such Thing As Bad Luck On A Ski Vacation,
Just Bad Planning.
After my own 11 snow safaris; skiing about 600 days in powder I fully agree that the only way of getting unlimited powder is to follow the storms or even better be ahead of them by a day. Combined with the very helpful stats in The Powder Bible you will sure be at the right spot at the right time.
If you plan on a powder chasing trip you should definitely invest a few $$ and buy “The Powder Bible” It will help you in many different ways and will also increase you chance of skiing powder almost every day.

I like the emphasis on flexibility and the reality that if you choose a time frame far in advance you need to cast a very wide net in terms of regions to ski to have a good chance of skiing powder. I have quite a bit of data supporting that necessity, which the author learned intuitively on several trips to North America.

Ski Resorts Were Not Created Equal
What the resort marketers won’t tell you – Geography, Prevailing Weather, Microclimates & Altitude are all factors in snowfall. Resorts just a few miles from each other can have greater than 30% difference in snowfall. The Powder Bible will lead you to the places that consistently top the tables.
Your Vacation Time is Valuable
Don’t waste it by locking yourself in to a mediocre experience – icy hardpack is no fun. Learn how to maximise your free time by adopting a flexible schedule and following the snow.
