Snowvols and David Z summed it up for me. If the board is strapped on and I'm riding, then it's a day. Whether that's 10 hours or 10 minutes does not matter to me. I'll still count it.

Oh yeah!? Well, my mom says I'm cool!

I can relate, here in the Midwest isn't much better. Our weekend plan is mostly all day riding and when we go during the weekday it's just a 2 hour session on the hill. This is all barring this old man doesn't slam to hard, then it's game over a little sooner

Man if a "day" is just strapping in then I got closer to 30 days then the 10 full days i thought counted. haha
many times we only do a couple hours of riding then call it quits.. never used to count those as days! but I will now!

If I ride my board it's a day. Which can be an ord (one run day) or a trd (two run day). Most of the time I spend a lot more time than that riding. I suspect most do. If all you are doing is getting a run in and bailing most of the time, something is wrong.

Anything counts, but being on the east coast and only getting about 15 days in, I ride for about 12 hours per trip. The shortest I've ever ridden was 4 hours because I was still drunk from the night before in tremblant so I didn't get on the mountain until 12. In those 4 hours I think I ate shit more than every other day I've ever ridden combined.

Remember that our hill is much smaller than for most of you guys. There are times that I can get 10 runs down the face run in 15 minutes. Stay strapped in, land on a chair, and ride off. So even though some trips may be short, if you count the hot lapping you could get nearly 60+ runs in under 2 hours.

Hey it's what we got.....riding is riding....
