Default Days per season = hours = ?????

Ok silly question.
Day riding per season.
  • Is this an all day trip 10+ hours riding that day?
  • a short night run?
  • You ride for a few hours and pack it up sore, took a big spill, what ever, does that count as a day??
  • essentially anytime your on the slope, does that count as a day riding??

If I've taken the lift to the top and rode down to the bottom... that's a day for me.

There will only be one or two days a season that happens. When wind holds open up the mountain is usually shit.

When you have the board attached to your feet that counts as a day in my book. Either early season hikes, long tours only resulting in a run or two, or 8+ hour day riding lifts. They are all the same.

When i go i stay all day usually. Last season i did maybe 3 days where i left after couple runs becauze it was solid ice. Otherwise im good for 6 to 8 hours the other days. I met so many people on lifts who come up for early morning laps maybe couple hours then go home. Im like "wtf"... we have a foot of fresh pow dude. Lots of outa shape riders out there. .. sad... sad...

Pretty much anytime you take any line, no matter what the length, that's a "day".

However, I always plan to ride first to last chair for my days because I have to make the few days I get really count. Sometimes I might fall short, wake up a little late and only make like 7.5 or 7 hours of the 8 or however long it's open, but still, out East as a weekend warrior, our season is so short you have to ride as much as you can while it lasts.

This.

Would I ride 6-8 hours a day every opportunity? Absolutely. But usually the stars are not aligned. Backyard bungee sessions, parking lots with winches, street drop-ins, 3hrs after work in a poorly lit, bombed out terrain park dodging denim-clad gapers? You bet I count it.

I'll take whatever I can get whenever I can get it.

Day with wife: Arrive at mountain 1100 AM sharp. Do 1 run maybe 2. Eat lunch for an hour. Do post lunch run, maybe 2. Go home.
Day by myself or with friend: 0900-till lift closes. 15 min lunch. Provided conditions are good.
Work day: 0900-1200

All count as a day. Good.
