I am bad luck...

Next week will be my 4th spring break (one of the first two weeks of March) trip to the Vail area... and like EVERY OTHER TIME I'VE GONE, it will be mid to high 40s during the week. I enjoy a good spring day like every one else, but not the 2nd week of March.

I think I am done with Colorado in March. It's February or bust from now on.

I'll be at Big Sky this week and it's been cold as shit... until I get there tomorrow, when it will be mid 30s all week with possible rain.

Fuck this luck.

Pretty sure they're calling for snow later in the week.

Angry Snowboarder Because someone has to call it how they see it!

I'll be arriving in Avon on the 9th. I don't listen to snow reports more than 2 days out, but I'll listen to temps. Those are easier to predict. And it's not looking to good...

Again, it will be amazing spring skiing, but that's what the east coast is for. If I get wet I want it to be from jizzing my pants after I drop a fresh line of waist deep, not from melting snow.

That was my year last year but this year I have hit it right. Was in Vail/BC on the Friday before Xmas when BC got a foot all day with no lift lines, and was there the last week of January when they got almost 3 feet in 48 hours.

I'll be there March 22-29 with the family and hopefully my luck this season will continue.

I know your pain.

I booked a trip to Western Canada for a month.

Arrived 2 days after a 30cm dump. There was only a little bit of fresh left when we got there. The whole time we were there it didn't snow, but was super cold. A couple of days were -35. The day after we leave, Revy Gets 1m of snow.

I got sick a week into the trip, couldn't shake it, even after spending $300 at the doctor, and to top it off, United Airlines fucked up our flights not once but twice on the way home. Sending us all over the states and arriving home two days late.

Looks like we are in a cycle of snow every two-three days. You are probably going to get some good snow. Quit your bitchin'.
