Spring Depression - Page 2

post #31 of 56
It doesn't end! 2 weeks ski trips remain (Tahoe & Banff), plus unlimited BC possibilities for those with AT or Tele gear (Guest1 has offered to show me the ropes).

Presuming, of course, that we can fit it in between sea kayaking, bike trips, backpacking and sailing. Yes, winter sucked in PNW, but the playground remains wide and deep.

No spring depression here. Too much to plan.

I was reminded that "old guys" soccer starts the first week if April. I'll be out to Vail soaking up the high altitude solar energy at that time, but the news did bring a spring to my step.

Local Area "plans" to close 10 April. We might have some snow left, but Spring comes Hard this late!

Why does it get the best just befor it ends?

I noticed that a lot of you are into mountain biking. I rode my Trek a few times last summer. I enjoy riding my bike! However, I am sooooo sad that ski season is ending. I was thinking about going one more time in March, but I do not think that is gonna fly...man I look so forward to skiing in the winter and the ski season seems to fly by.
I am deff looking forward to warmer weather though.I spent most of last summer by the pool Man it was kinda nice to not have a job last summer..I am dreading the thought of getting one after I graduate this May, ahhhhh!

Whitewater rafting season picks up (at least planning and running group trips all summer) in January and doesn't stop until October. Get some good overlapping in there so there is no downtime. Then planning for ski season group trips begins and although the weather in October doesn't say skiing around here, the work I'm doing in the house keeps me sane.

So, when I saw the usual end-of-season locker-clearing-out instructions, I knew that "it was time" and I went into a funk. :

I then saw that ski school management had also posted the date of the RIM in November and my mood improved considerably.

I'm looking forward to a great spring skiing season in Maine but my mind is already turning more towards trail running and marathon training. I'm going to be running in my first marathon this year. I've also entered the lottery for the Mt. Washington Road Race and am hoping I get in the race. Additionally I'm planning to buy a kayak this spring and so as much paddling as I can fit in. To everything, there is a season. I find things to enjoy and look forward to all year long.

One more trip and more single days here in UT. I have started tying flies and did actually wet a line last week. Spring hatches are excellent - the best time of the year. Golf to come later but right now I'm still into carving for at least another month for sure.:

How nice! Ski season is deff wrapping up here. In fact it might already be over. I was hoping to go one more time in March, but I suppose the weather is just getting to sunny. NOT that I am complaining Don't get me wrong I love the sun. I am looking forward to outdoor parties, bike rides, swimming, tanning, walking, concerts,etc..

I think my season is done as well. The closing weekend is this weekend and the forecast is for rain. If it rains I'll be unloading our gear bags. That is something I really regret. It will be time to start riding my road bike and also cruise in my '80 corvette and Sea Doo personal water craft. On the flip side I can't wait until next season to try out my season pass. This is the first year I've got one because we tend to frequent about three skiing resorts. With living in the midwest we really don't have a close "mountain" to ski.

Lets hope the rain holds off until Monday.

Mountain climbing!

Makes a great complementary hobby, since you can almost always do one or the other, year-round (and often both).

I'm getting itchy to get back on my road bike. The goal is to work myself up to doing a Century. Last year I only got to 45 miles, so I'm looking to improve that!

SENATOR: Sounds good. I did some quick research and found that the Inca Lodge says it is "only for those persons up the age of 21 years." Is this true? How were the dorm syle rooms?

Come East----- its still great sliding guys . We've been out 3 days this week so far and the base is solid , plenty of great stuff left to play in here in the Northern Adirondacks .

We'll be going at least til April -----before pond skimming season arrives !

But hey when its time to hang -em up & go to Plan B ---- we'll just get the golf clubs out , hit the Bike circuit and crank up the guitar amp a few higher notches with some Serious Volumne !!

My bike is tuned, the wheels are straight and I'm ready to ride. However, nothing worse than the home ski area closing with 2 feet of snow everywhere.

Just because theres' no skiers, what kind of excuse is that. There's me.

Trying to convience owner to stay open one more week. You know, the old "if your closed, there will be no $ coming in." rational.

Keep your fingers crossed.

Windham is absolutely Wonderful!!

90 west over the Hudson 87 south to Exit 21-Catskill and 23 west to the village. In fact we just got a load of ball caps and gym shorts with "Exit 21" on them.
