Another sign the season is near

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Received my first ski mag of the season today - Powder's September issue. Although, I think I like seeing it in my mailbox and knowing we're closer to the season more than actually reading what they have to say.

I was wonderign when the first mag would show up. Other sign, Langhorne is having their first sale of the year this weekend.

I like that forecast! It has definitely been nice waking up to cool mornings even down here the past few days.

Yes but we must be careful and weary. I remember skiing 3 to 4 feet of nice nice pow at K-mart on sat oct 28th last year. Then remember what happened.....NOTHING. No snow , No winter. A few good days that was it. I have been praying nightly for a killer winter!:

I don't know what you're talking about - last winter (18 months ago) wasn't too bad. And as you describe, last fall (9 months ago) was actually pretty good. It was just a below average Spring, that lasted longer than normal.

Last winter here in Northern NY was absolutely BUNK! Gore even shut down the gondola for a long while. Whiteface had crap for snow(my home mountain). Was a terrible winter compared to the one before and the one before that and the one before before that. Actually it was recorded as the worse winter for snow in fifty years here in NY and VT. Look it up lad.

Arizona, August, 95 degrees. A veritable cold snap. Break out your down and cover the tomato plants.

You need to reread what I was saying more carefully.

Last year, as marginal as it was in the East was pretty good....for me. I got in 25 days in New England with only 2-3 being less than average. Would I have prefered better conditions and more snow? Of course, but I will take what I got last year.

the bears (the four-footed, wooly, smelly kind) have been dumpster diving for the last two weeks. Hopefully, that means an early winter.

I'm ready for ski season more than ever this year. I think the temps of 98+ everyday here in the south for 3 straight months has finally gotten to me. Cheers to a good season coming up.

It's definately cooling off here in Park City.The evenings and mornings are almost getting to be sweater weather, and I woudn't be suprised to see the Aspens turning yellow soon. The Surefoot shop at the resort center was setting up fixtures yesterday and Cole Sport cleared all their old hardware out to make room for the coming season's skis and boots. Skiing mag seems to have sensable reviews, but I notice that the Monster 88's Power/finesse rating went from a crazy 98/2 last year to a more believable 64/36. And so it goes...

My mail has been late as of late. Our normal thrusday rags are showing up on Saturdays. I have not seen hide nor hair of my ski mags (except that I did get my early winter PST newsletter from PSIA-E which wasn't very good)

Yep. My usual evening bike rides have been getting a little shorter lately due to the declining amount of sunlight available. No jonesing going on here! :

Colorado Ski & Golf was setting up their ski collection last week. Christy Sports has a notice up looking for winter season help. Not that I went to check out skis in August! :
