A day after/during an amazing snowfall in the mountains where the ski area is transformed into a slice of heaven by light, fluffy, deep powder snow. Skiers and snowboarders have perma-grin etched on their faces for at least 24 hours. Exultant whooping can be heard all around. This is your chance to huck huge cliffs and try a backflip with no consequences. If you miss it you will hear about it the next day and feel regret.
1. Next powder day, I am definitely calling in sick.

2. We haven't had a good powder day around here in weeks.

3. One has no friends on a powder day (meaning the good snow conditions trump all family and friend relationships, I will not meet you for lunch, I will not help you move, I will not go to your wedding, because tomorrow is going to be a powder day, sorry buddy).

A day when there is a crap ton of fresh snow and a perfectly valid excuse to ditch your friends on the mountain
John: Roy your going to fast, slow down
Roy: Sorry... no friends on a powder day
John: Well I guess I’ll go to the chalet
