The Death of Winter?
 
Not much fun to read I'm afraid...

I'm in the Midwest and this weather has just sucked. We got real cold then a 68* day followed by rain, an entire resort of blown snow had disappeared. My local resort is still not fully open and not looking good for the week leading into Christmas break as well. A huge revenue generator that week when all the kids are off. I can actually visualize a 2 month riding season if this doesn't change soon. SAD!!!!!

Yup...but I fear it's already too late to change. It's now about managing/mitigating the effects of indiscriminate climate abuse all these decades rather than changing it.

Rough year again, that's for sure.


I spilt my time between the Black Hills of SD (Terry Peak) and Summit County.

Both suck ass this year.. :thumbsdown:

Less snow sucks, however there is opportunity...such as a dh bike trails or disc golf. So ya all that are having a sucky winter, perhaps get some folks togather and start building trails and getting the hill owners to see there are other options....perhaps even bigger ones with longer seasons. I ran into a friend who is also in his 50's and recently did a disc golf tournament at crystal; he noted that folks were launching disc 1500+ feet on a single throw. And the kids are doing crazy stuff dh here in pnw...which looks abit too gnarly for me, but I recall more mellow stuff in the midwest with dirt/loam that would be a blast. Anyway no affliations but...

How was the winter in New Zealand this year? (I think during summer in North America)

If it stays good, I might get a vacation home there one day.

NZ had a pretty average year, Australia did very well tho.

I really don't think you can say that 1.5 bad seasons in one part of the world = disaster

Nope, I'm calling it a disaster. It will never snow again, ever.

Sell your stuff folks she's all over....not that it matters, the world is ending in a few days anyway!

I was dating a guy who was a former meterologist and now does climate research for NASA (I live right by a NASA hub, cute guys but ALL freaks) He kept telling me that there will be no more snowboarding in 20 years and all sorts of other nasty things that are awaiting our future here on earth.


aaaaaaaaaand I had to dump him because I couldn't take the doom and gloom he was always spouting off about. :blink:

Ill just move to antarctica or AK when that happens.
