Pfft yea..keep complaining when you guys get 2 feet of snow IN YOUR BACK YARD.

Some lower resorts out here in Oregon barely have 3 feet base this year...and even the higher up ones are well under half of where they should be...

The east coast has been getting pounded this year! And spring riding in Vermont is fun. Slush does not mean bad!

arsenic... you probably think i live in an igloo too right?

hate to tell ya... grass is whats in my backyard. if i'm not at the hill as often as i am, i would have assumed they were closed for lack of snow. luckily, they are good at making it and somehow, keeping it. our base (even after this last snowfall) is under 3 feet (56cm right now).

and that hill.. vertical of 75m (245ft)... yeah... we rock. come join our pity party!

sarcasm... yeah... like THAT will ever catch on...

I think arsenic was talking to the OP? My friends in NJ were telling me about their 2ft of snow. So many east coast snowstorms this year, so unfair!

east coast getting pounded

That is obviously not true of the entire east cost - just the mid-Atlantic region. They have been getting pounded, but Vermont is way behind where it should be. But yeah - even though the conditions aren't the best, it's still better than summer!

Holy crap...I only get 2 minutes runs out of the trails that zig zag the mountain! Maybe if you include strapping-in and a little bullshitting with your buddies could I get 2 min out of regular diamond slope. I can down most of these in about 30 seconds.

Then its another 15 minute ride up the lift...
