Default Summarize your season

How was this season for you? Want to rant about the crappy snow? Rave about the new tricks you learned? No particular format - just whatever comes to mind.

I didn't find it to be a particularly great season. Great snow in December, cruddy after that. I rode too conservatively this year because of injuries, so didn't progress as much as I'd have liked.

The meet-ups at Cypress and Baker were highlights though. Great fun, very educational, a little humbling.

Mind you, as many people point out, even bad snowboarding is good.

The season of what could have been.

It started off fine enough with riding in November but the snowfall wasn't great through December and early January. I got broke off for good in early-mid January when the resorts were finally starting to be fully open.

THAT is when the epic season began for everyone else. Multiple pow days, some of them epic. A season that extended all the way into April (actually still going here in Michigan), longer than many can remember and I watched it play out from home. FML

On the bright side; My niece and nephew can now ride chairlift runs and my daughter was able to get on skis for the first time this season so I look forward to some family trips next year to supplement the time I'm riding with bros.

So far though great season. I'm already 5 days past my previous record, on track for 1500 km total, hitting way more air than I have since I was 16 (and probably more than back then), haven't injured anything TOO bad, rode with people almost every day which has been fun.

Of course there could have been more powder, more days on the hill, less board damage, etc. etc. but I refuse to look at the negatives of this year. The positives have been very positive!

Yesterday we Hiked a very small distance to the summit of mt bachelor and dropped the front side, what made it memorable is the scattered icy conditions you had to get past to reach the good stuff.

I got jammed up at the top on a pitch to steep to flip around to regular toe side (I was on switch heel side) . Had to dig ledges in the snow for my board, ass, and hands. 5 ft in front of me was a icy super drop I couldn't see over. Kinda sucked for bit up there.

35, hoping for 40 by the end. I'm not like some of the guys on here that get 100 days a year. They're freaks...

Two seasons ago in Ontario, 21 days was my best.

Last year I did 30 days and was thrilled.

If I keep on this track I'll be going for 50 next year!

That's awesome. 30-40 was my goal this year. Chomps, the punk, is at 44 going on 46 this weekend.


Does COP tend to have a longer or shorter season than Lake Louise/Sunshine/etc?

My season is still going. I passed the 50 day mark sometime towards the end of March and I'm still riding 2-5 days a week.

Season here north of Toronto was pretty decent. Slow start, but then it settled into a solid pattern. Much less ice coast than usual which was a real bonus.

Got in 31 days total with trips to Sugarbush and Killington.

On the 10 scale, I'd call it an 8.5. Too bad it's over.

Is it December yet?
