MPD get your facts straight. I had some killer pow days in November and December. I rode crappy Western NY it's flat, tiny, and nothing is Epic about it. This is how it went down when I came back to NY. Take a "high speed quad" that still took 15 minutes to get up 750 vertical drop. Get off skate across crappy ice, put on good song, get to the bottom before lyrics have even started and then repeat.

Today was knee to waist deep at the Basin. Tomorrow it's AK rocket time. Everything should be filled back in and I'm going to slay it.

Everyone in CO was just spoiled the last 2 seasons with some killer above average snowfall in the mountains. Even though last weekend was nearly 60 degrees, I had a great time spring riding. Sure, you had to stick to the groomers before 11am, but after that, the snow was soft and the sun was shining...And most importantly, there's still another 2 months of riding left in the season. Even longer if you're willing to earn your turns.

^^^ Definitely true. After being out here for 19 years, I've seen a lot of different seasons. There is really only one that I would call crap. That is a good track record. Colorado may not get the most snowfall, but it's one of the most reliable spots there are.

I agree Ellicottville is flat tiny expensive and non epic. If u look at my photos where I have brought people from outside clearly...it was epic this year

And yes western locations have more verticle and Im
not saying the west was terrible and not worth it. However Avaran....a good woman will tell ya Its not always about size
What city are you talking about. You make no sense. Lay off the bong rips before posting.

I think it's been a good winter aside from having to work more than last year thus missing more pay days. Last year we got killed in January and February and had the exact same dry spell through march. Thursday march 26th at Loveland we were easily burning up knee to thigh high powder on lift 4. Tuesday march 24th we had 1-2 feet everywhere we looked. Last year at the end of April we got killed at Loveland with a good 2 foot dump. March is just sometimes a wierd month. Also don't forget that our seasons are still 2-4 months longer than a LOT of places, even on a bad year so we don't really have much to complain about.

MPD please quit posting the same pictures over and over and over and over, we know you had powder at your Jay Peak meet last year and this year, and have seen your pictures a million times. They don't need to be beaten to death in a Colorado thread too, no offense just sick of looking at em again and again and again and again and again and again
