I would think the skiers in the PNW had a great year. My trips to Canada were some of the best ever. Tahoe in December was exceptional. The last 45 days have delivered great spring conditions in the Sierra, winter skiing in PNW, Utah and Colorado.
Closing weekend at Mount Rose was terrific. The last few days at Mammoth, well I could not have a higher fun quotient no matter how deep or blower the snow was. I had a great year. I think Philpug who is still skiing at A Basin is over the number of ski days he thought he would get this year.
October backcountry skiing in the Tahoe area was super. It has been 6 months since those ski days and a lot of great days in between. Those that I talk to agree that the skiing was simply much better than everyone thought.
As a friend stated a few years ago after a great day, " it could not have been better than today." Another friend's response was " yes it could if it was deeper." His reply " yes it could have been deeper but it could not have been more fun."
I think we can get too hung up on the conditions versus how much fun you had.
What was your year like?
