Not much out there is truly waterproof, and days like this make life pretty miserable. We have been pretty lucky all things considered. Rain during the week, ok weather during the weekend. Slopes in most east areas are as someone else described, manmade snow, pushed and tracked out to the point that on steeper terrain nothing but a solid sheet of yellowish ice is present. A dusting of snow here or there, keeps things...ridable.

A good dumping like we had last week of 12" makes the week good. Even with light amount of riders, eventually the yellow shows through.

With that said, we had a full day of rain today, and next week doesn't look good.

Had it not been for this 12" as pathetic as it sounds, and about 2" of manmade ONE day in the past 2.5 weeks that they could muster, I think our local resorts would be shutting down the 2nd week of march! This snow however I think MAY extend us into late march.

Sadly, the slopes are so small now, I'll take any conditions just to ride.

I guess that's why I knocked myself silly when I tried to hit a big jump and landed flat boarded on the knuckle, SOLID ice on the landing pad. Yet another reason why I hate the east. I loved hitting jumps on skis, and not doing in on a board is kiling me.
