What Vermont are you boarding in? Vermont just got 16 inches of snow.

Sorry to hear that!

Conditions are the best we've had since the blizzard of '93.

I'm in Western PA. 7Springs has 72" basses and are expecting another 6-8" of pow tonight and tomorrow.

i wish i could think like that but money is tight for me and it's not worth the gas money and lift ticket money to me anymore this year unless there is some sort of miracle snow storm...

Things will be different next year when i have a season pass. I guess i should start looking forward to the motocross season

i did atleast spend the first 8 weekends of the season on the slopes tho

should have seen it on sunday supreme... 45 minute lines, i shit you not. i was "patrolling" so i said screw this. sat at the entrance to the terrain park and yelled at people not wearing helmets. probably got 4 runs in over 6 hours.

yeah, a bad season for snow in ontario. think our opening day was in january this year. and the other day, we finally got our first real snow. 3-5 inches fell depending where you were. apparently, that matched our total all year thus far.

i can understand the frustration. i just wish our crap snow year didn't coincide with my super poor year or else i'd be chasing that snow.

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