How many days?

This year I'm pretty proud of myself. I managed to get in around 50 as of right now and should end up around 55ish. Not to bad for a resort that has only been open about 70 days. What have you guys got right now and what are you expecting?

I'm at 31. I'll be able to ride this Saturday to make 32 but I might have to drive up to 4hrs one way to do it. After that I'm pretty much done for unless one of the local hills pulls off a miracle and is open the following weekend 3/17. Wife's due end of the month, so that's put the kibosh on any late season travel.

On a positive note, I had 36 days last year and it was 100% better winter, so I'm stoked I was able to get almost as many days in this year in a season that's about 6 weeks shorter than last year.

I don't know what to expect for next season, first kid & all. I guess I'll shoot for 20 or maybe a few more if I spread them out and bank a 4- or 5-day trip in April I should be able to get at least that many. WIfe has been unbelievably cool so far this year so hopefully that trend continues

That's rediculous. I couldn't do more than two days in a row. Does he go to school or anything?

8 days....pretty lame compared to everyone else. It sucks having a 2 hour drive to get to the closest mountain and working full time.

Homeschool in the evenings.... Regular school cramps out style... We like to live life on our schedule and vacation alot on short notice plus we do not wanna depend and revolve around the fucking school districts shit schedule. The majority of teachers these days could really fucking care less about students too...

He rides 8 hours a day, 7 days a week.... Vail mtn is his home room....

Wow, I salute you sir. I agree with you on the schools, although I can't speak for out there. That's actually what I am going for now is teaching high school. Most in the large public school are just there for the pay and summers off. Unless you get into a small school district you're gonna have impersonal teachers and less ride time.

I'm at 42 days. I skipped a few days where I could have gone but chose not to because the early part of this winter sucked so bad. Last year I had 69 days for the season, but I don't know if I'll match it this year. It's been hitting the high 50F range down in town and when it gets into the 60's I don't feel like snow sports any more.
