I feel you there. Nothing but rain today certainly didn't help either. Hoping to get at least a couple more days in before everything shuts down.

thats it for me this season. i'm going away next weekend and i doubt anyplace in the poconos is going to be open much after that. i hit up blue today and it was fun but the coverage is definitely getting worse. it looks like they're loosing snow fast.

the conditions were decent today, a lot better than i thought they would be. it was slushy in areas but not too bad and the park was fun for awhile before it got crowded and washed away. you would go over a feature and look up and see a wall of like 30-40 kids. most of who wanted to sit in front of the feature or sit down in the landing.

i did see some funny shit though. right after the lift, two skiiers got fouled up and one of them launched atleast 10 feat into the woods. he literally went flying into the woods ass first with his skis above his head. he wasnt hurt so i laughed my ass off

they also had a big air comp that i saw...it was pretty sick, kids were throwing double corks into a very unforgiving landing. i dont know if i'll ever have the balls to try something like that. there were some ugly falls


cant wait for next year, hopefully i'll be in vermont and new hampshire if i can manage to move finally.

I'm headed up to Maine this weekend for 2 days at Sunday River. Forecast is calling for 50+ as well. Gonna look to make the best of it. Pray the wind chill makes it feel colder. Slow the melting a bit. But this season is pretty much done.
Starting to prep for my spring hobbies

Yesterday was my first (and last) day of snowboarding in 65F temps. I'm just going to keep hoping that my trips out west for end of March still happen

Was planning on doing a trip to Stratton next weekend but I don't think thats happening now. Supposed to be 65-70 degrees all of next week. Wouldn't be surprised if all the snow melted by next Saturday. So depressing.

I feel ya. This winter wasnt anything at all and now it seems like we are going to skip spring and head right into summer. I think its going to be a long time till we see winters like we had over the past two years. To top it off the local weatherman was giddy all winter while predicting warmer temps it made me want to punch him in the face. If he likes warm winters he should move to florida. F him. F this shitty winter, and F this hot summer coming up! Glad I didnt get talked into buyin a season pass though...

Three spectacular days at Mt Snow, although friday was pouring rain for part of it. Saturday was awesome but it was clear that the warm temps and sun and rain were crushing the base. We had to come back Saturday night anyway, but got in 5 hours this morning at Holiday Valley in NY for their closing day. Really sad that the season got cut short like it did for the ice coast, but spring always comes.

You might have seen the pics I posted in the thread "Why?"....can't I hit boxes. Well I did, and those pics were taken 4 days ago. It is now raining tonight, and like I said, I really wish I had done more earlier this season, but Austria is also coming to a rapid close. What with around 800km, some 250 odd lifts rides over 35 days, I think I've done well. So now the missus and I have booked flights to the south of Spain in early May, going to sit on the beach and reminisce about a short, but excellent winter season.

Season in the midwest (Iowa) was well over before my trip to CO last week. Based on the weather and forecast, the summit county resorts don't have much gas left in them either unfortunately...

Just a very odd winter all around.
