Glad you went in and got the drugs.

What was your goal at the beginning of the season for times out? You're kicking ass.

At first I didn't have a firm goal, but after I hit 10-15 days fairly early,.. I thought, Hell maybe I should try to hit or even crack 40 days! Not sure that's gonna happen now. Looks like I'm going to miss another day of work today just to play it safe, but I'm out of sick days (...how do you think I got to 29 days already!!) so paycheck will be super short!! So with less money & fewer chances to head up Norht,.. ???? (...here's hoping for some local late season storms!!)

You're only Young Once,.. but you can be Immature FOREVER!

Feb/Apr 2011. (27) days!
2011/12 (38) days!
2012/13 (48) days!
2013/14 (44) days!
2014/15 (00)
2015/16 (12) days!

Well, we got about a month to get it in. Highlands ended late March last season and my last run the year prior was mid March too.

Ahh, but you also have to remember how exceptionally warm last March was too. Didn't we have a bunch of days in the 70s and even touch the 80s a few times? That certainly shortened the season by a bit.

I'm optimistic that we'll be going in April at least at the northern hills.

Well I tried out and joined the Mt Holly Ski Patrol. My training starts in March, so next year I'll be able to scrape you guys off the hill.

Those videos for Mount Macelona are awesome. Lotto tickets are purchased..

I think we will be cold later this year. the Earthquake and monsoon that rocked Thailand or wherever in 2011 shifted the Earth on its axis.

everything is out of whack.

It got warm in March, It didnt get cold until December

It was 64 in Indy Monday, today its 13 with a windchill -1

The seasons are twisted to say the least!!!

Just don't be a jerkface that pushes me out of the way in the lift line as you charge to catch up with your other jerkface patrol buddies.

And if I call you out for being one, don't respond with "Yea yea." I might have to Kanye West your mouth otherwise.

Do they have a set temp that they stop making snow and call it, or is it lack of people showing up?
