Is anyone done for the year? - Page 4

post #91 of 112

Still two months left

12 inches of powder in the past two days at Sunshine. I plan on skiing until late May!
post #92 of 112

Done??!!

I'm just beginning!!

3' of snow since Friday, another three feet by Saturday.
Fairey Meadows for a week after that.
And then a week shooting vidi in the Southern Sierra's.
And then back home to the land of the volcanos.

No, I'm not done for the year!

Is anyone done for the year?

Yes, I am.

My boots were in my truck all season, and today I brought them into the apt.

That is symbolic, because I just got my MTB out for the first time this year, and while cleaning it up, on the way back inside to get some tools, I brought my ski boots back in with me

I think I was leaving the boots in the truck for maybe a late spring snowstorm, or possible a late-season weekend-drive to VT. Both those ideas now fall into the category 'hope springs enernal', . . . . unless of course there's a business trip out west.

Phil, We are having a company ski party at "the beach" at A-Basin on May 8th. That will likely be the end of the season for me. BTW, I was going through the pics in the "what do you look like" thread and revisted your air time at the Basin. Was that leap off the West Wall? I watched a buddy take that lip last spring at our company bash and blow out of both bindings on landing! He was okay as the landing was soft. Happy cone killing this summer. LewBob

Done... until one hot week in July when I will be unable to stand the "hot town summer in the city, back of my neck gettin dirty and gritty" ...and I will travel to a nice cool glacier in the Tyrolean alps! Oh yeah!! Wax up those carvers!!!

It seems like I'm getting close but I skied yesterday and today and plan to ski tomorrow.

I hate Killington but when it's te only game in town that's where I go! Jay and Stowe seem to be hanging in so maybe I'll head north one more time.

Talking about Tucks too. But I doubt that I could do it justice with the hike and all. A sherepa would help.

Count me in as done for the year. Tib/fib fractures seem to end things pretty quickly.

I finished my season today at Mt. Sunapee, New Hampshire. I had considered myself finished after a late-March visit to Jay Peak, but two friends were heading to Sunapee and invited me to come along, so I went. Coverage was actually pretty good -- the trails that were open had plenty of snow; I was surprised.

And, in true last-day fashion, I had a memorable wipeout. No idea what happened, but I got slammed down. Right under the chairlift and in full view of both my friends. One chairlift comment I heard was "Now THAT was a perfect 10!" and the other chairlift comment was "best one of the season !".

I wasn't hurt, I made at least four people smile, it was 50 degrees and I was skiing in a t-shirt. Can't beat that for the last day.

Ullr, you were a bit late in remembering that New England needs some snow too (the New Hampshire season didn't become great until early/mid February), but then it became unbelievable. Thanks for a great season!

Sunday, April 10th will be my last day at Copper for the season. And we have a mob of beginners coming in-some sort of band camp.

Fly back east for a family visit on the 13th. Bro (aka, The Hack) is in desperate need of a golf lesson-how quick we go from teaching one sport to another.

I may ski at Loveland on April 23/24-started my season there last October 18th. It has been a good year!

There are four seasons.

Yesterday, I prepped the Shaped skiis for storage and packed the gear up for the season. Since I only live a few miles from the beach, I'm looking forward to windsurfing soon. Today will be a good day to hit a few buckets of golf balls. I'ld love to set a fire under my brother-in-law and put his boat in the water for some water-skiing, though. It's been thirty years since I've done that. Yes, I still have my old wooden slalom board.

swifty: Since you are so critical, I have to ask why you felt the need to cap "Shaped"? Is that a brand we, the uninformed are not aware of?

Welcome to modernity. Are they in the closet next to yer' pair-of bolicks?

I just returned from 7 days of skiing in Quebec. I had lots of rain, but also some nice, sunny days of glorious spring skiing. It was a good winter (47 days on snow).

Try getting your message across.

Somehow I don't follow your drift, but I think it's deroguetory. Correct my spelling and correct my idea if I am wrong.

C'est dommage.

I think I beat you for days-on-snow, but I had 39 Cross-country days, 8 snowshoe days, and I haven't counted the Alpine yet.

My season, at least in my horrible leaning_tower-boots, is Over!
Hated to say good-bye to skiing for this season, but with the boots that I've been putting up with...it wasn't difficult at all. Will be spending the afternoon/eve in the Carrabassett Valley (Reggaefest's last day) in enjoyable hikin' boots.
After the boot-tossing ceremony(Saturday afternoon), a couple skiing friends and I managed to coax to the net & safely release about a dozen or so brooktrout from a nearby stream......the ski_&_trout-gods must have seen the smile on my face during the boot-tossing...

For me it is all alpine, but no matter, a day on snow is a good day regardless of the toys used.

Skied until April 3 in West Virginia (Snowshoe), on 5-15" of fresh snow that last day. They close today, April 10. Not a bad run considering the warmup we had in January.

With 1.5Ft of fresh powder this weekend and the Deck at Sugarbowl Village lodge still below the snow line. (you can ski right onto the deck) I sure hope not.

I skied Most of the day Friday, then taught 4 hrs Saturday. I'll probably be up next weekend to ski (I think I'm done teaching but that could change) and hope to ski into May. It will be nice after having my last season cut short by a femur break..
