What the jesus...

Mysticfalcon, how in the blue and purple Moses fuck do you only have 23 days this season?

I live in the mid-Atlantic. Not even the GOOD mid Atlantic. The DC kind where we get no snow and pray to every God we can think of for days cold enough to MAKE SNOW. Just so it can freeze every night and turn into a solid sheet of gluteal raping death. I also live far enough away from said bump palace that I can only go on weekends. WEEKENDS Rob. When every shit nosed sheep farmer and bureaucratic ass-cheese takes a day off from violating humanity and decides instead to violate what small pleasure we can gleam from our "mountain".

With all of that, I still have over 30 days in. I rode in the rain, in the god damn RAIN Rob, to get 30 days. Not once or twice, but three times! All day! And keep in mind I'm on-call once every 5 weeks. That means if I'm 70 minutes into my drive up and I get paged, I have to go home.

You live 30 minutes from an actual mountain. Where they have actual trails. Not three sad stripes of 600ft vertical they cut in half mid-way and call 12 runs (DC math for you Spunky). A mountain that gets real snow, lots of it, and while may be populated the scum of creation (french canadians) is big enough that you only have to see them on the gondola.

You should be ashamed.

I have a word limit on my cynicism

You will find that the closer you live to a nice mountain, the pickier you get with your days, (unless your a park rat, but then park rats hate fog). I hate riding groomers, and even though they are nice and steep, I'll just wait until a powder day.

It's called being spoiled, it ruins you and makes you take everything for granted.

I'm a mid-atlanticer with over 30 days too! Image if your snow fell from the sky and not from machines how many days we would have on snow. I probably wouldn't even be able to count high enough to record my days.

Well i live in ireland where it snows about 5 days a year.... i snowboard 2 times a week on a 180m long dry slope, (which is much harder than snow and hurts bad if you fall) so consider yourself lucky you get to ride on snow at all....

Riding good snow enough times makes you not want to ride when it sucks...
