sorry man, was in a muy snarky mode yesterday and took this to be yet another "where's the snow/this season's going to suck" thread.
i got tired of hearing that last season, which was admittedly a poor season in Cali in terms of snowfall. thing of it is, you make do. while we may not have got the base and perpetual dumps of previous years i still managed to squeeze in 40 days on the slopes (not bad for a weekend warrior). what's more is that while quite a lot of my so-called "hardcore" friends sat around lamenting the lack of snow and brushing off heading to the mountains, i went out and skied, met some cool folks, and had one of the best seasons ever.
while your coverage might not be stellar at the moment in Colo, there is snow. i know, i skied it last weekend. hell, i flew out from Cali just to get some turns in at Loveland and A-Basin. who cares that it was WROD? not me. i had a blast with a few Epic folks, got the ski legs a wee bit warmed up and got the stoke burning.
anyway, remember what they said in Field of Dreams: build it and they will come. perhaps if they blow it, then it will dump, eh?
