Or is that amount "zero"? :D

 

Whistler and other coastal resorts regularly get rain, some years they get more than others.

 

Whistler sells green garbage bags with with their logo and arm and neck holes already cut...way too prepared for rain, imo.

Nobody likes rain, but WA has not had an inordinate amount of it compared to past years.  We've had some incredible days, and some dogs, like usual.  It seems to me like a very normal year.

Worst since I moved to New England.    :hopmad::hopmad::hopmad:

 

Wednesday Sr. Olympics is looking like the last time a race course could be set at our mountain.  Lost adequate base to set gates and secure fences.  I think they have already poached snow from and closed one of the bigger trails.  Rain yesterday driving another nail into the early coffin of the '15/'16 season.

We've (or at least I've) had a surprisingly good season here at Mt. Hood.  The snowfall and snowpack is probably right around average so given that I was expecting another ho-hum winter I am quite happy with an average season.  After last season where I could count the powder days we had on one hand, and fearing that this season could turn out the same, I've taken advantage of my "flexible" schedule and have been up to the hill nearly every day that there was more than six inches of fresh.  Actually my most disappointing riding of the season was the road trip we took to Solitude and Targhee in early February.  Ironically I planned the trip because our local winter forecast was for low snow and I figured those resorts would be my best bet for powder this season.  We had a nice trip and the skiing was still fun, but it was sunny with absolutely no fresh snow (conditions were similar at home so at least we didn't miss anything).  Anyway, our local hill had a great start and while it has slowed down, we are still getting occasional days of fresh snow.  I think I'm about ready for Spring, but wouldn't mind a few more good days to end the 2015/2016 season.

In BC here it's been very mild and not much snow at lower elevation but consistent snow at high elevations.  The coast and western/southern interior are having a banner year.  Near 12m of snow for Whistler, over 9m of snow for Revy and Whitewater... Big White has already surpassed their annual average.  Although below 1400m snow quality has been quite poor since late January.

Ski season may be over but this isn't a bad way to enjoy a beer on a Tuesday night.

Mammoth has been great this year and it's awesome to see the mountain filled in completely for the first time in almost 4 years!

I gotta tell you though I was on google earth today looking at the upper owens and i'm really getting EXCITED about being able to use my trusty WHOOLY BOOGER again up there in more than a few inches of water!!!

( For you bait killers out there thats the green glitter power bait of flyfishing :) !!

Vibes on the ski season being over.  I am getting excited for the corn harvest that is April and May in the Eastern Sierra. Leave for Tahoe in a week and plan to schlap the bejeezuz out of Kirkwood.

 

Hopefully Snoseek is still there to ski with.

There used to be an entertainer from NYC, wintering in Wilmington Vermont, named Sweet Pie. He penned a song entitled "Vermont: Its a Poor Man's Colorado".

I don't know the song, but I wonder if it is true how come the Stowe's lift tickets are close to 115$ a day and for A-Basin for example there were some deals at 36$ a day this season. If I was the poor man , I would pick A-Basin .

"Vermont: Its a Poor Man's Colorado" is referring to the quality of skiing, not the price.
