Deep, Deeper, Deepest

Like the Corgis of Instagram, but for skiers

People are comparing the storm cycle that’s pounding the West right now to the winters of ’98, of 2005, 2006, 2011, or ’83, or ’52. But the difference between the storms of 2017 and the storms of past is the sheer amount of record in the form of photos and videos documenting the dumpage. You can thank Instagram for that. Or blame the skiers for having a hashtag problem. Regardless, there’s some serious day-dreaming inspiration on the social media-sphere right now. So, at the risk of sounding too much like some of those websites that publish Corgi feeds, here’s a few of the deepest photos of Instagram:
