... I didn't see that anyone had started a stoke thread, so figured I'd throw one out there. If I missed it, mods please combine this thread with that one. Thanks.
I'm serious - I didn't get my first ski day this year until the end of January. It's been that sad around here. Right now our snowpack is at 48% of normal, which is a big step up from the collection of barely glazed rocks we had up until a few weeks ago.
If you catch it right, good skiing can still be had. I feel for the folks who have been planning trips here and have a limited window for skiing. The snowstorms have been pretty few and far between, which means that old tracks don't get covered quickly, non sled-accessed terrain is a real bitch to get to, and the number of days with really marginal conditions have been outnumbering the good days.
All that said - we've been really lucky with some good ski days and fairly reasonable avy conditions (so far, knock wood.)
Here are some photos from a couple of recent ski days, all taken up Lamoille Canyon. Anything else is really a drag to get into right now.
