A sad day in my life...........

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Well folks, today I had to retire a pair of skis for the season. It seems that the warm temps, soft, thin layer of snow has forced me to do so. This mixed with only rain and warmer temps in the future has led me to beleive that my Stockli Stormrider DP's will be of no use to me....so I got the storage wax, the screw drivers, and the file out and proceeded to "winterize". They now sit in a bag up in the closet.....R.I.P. UNTIL NEXT SEASON! [img]graemlins/evilgrin.gif[/img]

Well, looks like it's time to get the drysuit out!

Looks like rain and 50 degree temps Wed and Thurs.

That is no good

I know the feeling. I put my skis as well as my daughters away on Saturday morning. I hope everyone else has a good finish to the season. I know I'm done. It looks like it's time to get my other toy out for spring!

Hoping this next system will give us a little relief.

and extend our ski season a week or 2.

Enjoy your summer sport. I'll be looking to mine soon too.

My season just ended yesterday. But I finished it with a bang. I got into skiing park in mid-season and I can now do 180s, 360s, and a lot of other cool tricks.

There's always mount hood - palmer snow field (which melted last september messing up my streak)

And Chili, New Zealand, Argentina, Hintertux

Why stop just cause it's warm where you are?

(just a rehtorical question. Whilst I might ski a couple of times yet, I'm getting my bike and my carvers ready)

Do I laugh? Do I cry? Maybe a little of both. I suppose what you don't know won't hurt you. Or me, which is really what's important.

We had light rain showers in Summit County yesterday and a little frozen rain last night. Unheard of in March (or even April for that matter). Temperatures are expected to be in the 50's again today (like the last seven days) with the possibility of more showers or even thunderstorms. No cooler temperatures forecast until Sunday. Spring has made an early appearance.

Everybody is dreaming of last years big spring storms.
