Who's season is over? - Page 5

post #121 of 134
Last week, 1 day tour and the weekend at Brighton with the wife and daughter. Hopefully Snowbasin this weekend and Snowbird after that. Plus I should be able to get at least month more booting and/or skinning to the top. It's winding down but not over yet.

30 days so far, and that's with the unwanted broken-shoulder-hiatus-thing thrown in there in the middle of the season. Skiing without family next week at Mammoth (any bears going to be there?), then the weekend of the 10th, then Memorial Day, so I'll get in another 14 days or so...heh,heh!:

Not even close. Gloating follows:

Santa Fe Baldy, Sunday 4.20:




Of course to get there, we had to do this:


and this:


But still, for the southern Rockies...not bad.

And some from Thursday 4/17 at Santa Fe:






I love the smile on A's face above. Skiing powder in Santa Fe in Mid-April will do that to a grrl.

Skiing feels very distant to me already...we have teetered around the 70* mark for the last week.

Thought mine was over April 6, watching the dirt chickens at timberline, got home cleaned the mud off of everything, mentally my season was over ........


Then SCWVA, thanks Scott, had an opening on a spurr of the moment trip to VT, really wasn't sure it would happen until Early Saturday morning.

Met in Harrisburg pa at 8:00 pm drove to Glen Falls slept five hours got to Stowe Sunday man they still have a BUNCH of snow skied all day tailgated in the parking lot for a bit then drove to Brattleboro had a nice dinner slept six hours and drove to Mount Snow had a blast Monday 4/21 on the North Face I chickened out on ripcord but we skied everything else and then we drove home. That's about it my season is over, mentally and spiritually .

Did I mention that Stowe and Mt. Snow had a bunch of snow??

Jimmy, the ski season is never mentally over for you. Who needs sleep when you have snow.

Wow, bob, thanks for the pics, and the link from the surprise thread.
You're right, you need to get out more so you can suck at a higher leverl.

Looks like Sunday will be my last day of lift served riding. I'll be wearing a grass skirt and lei (over my gear dudes!). The guy I'll be with may or may not be wearing a lei. I will have two extra lei's if anyone needs one. I think $ 0.75 should cover what it cost me.

Yeah, guaranteed.:

Funny but true story.
When I was working at this one biotech company in Boulder there was this one group of scientists that always took a annual mtn bike trip to Moab. They had this tradition of having a nightly award to whomever rode their bike the most agressively on the trails that day. They gave them a lei. One day the single, shy, quiet, head of protein chemistry showed his prowess on his mtn bike. A female scientist told him " Hey D..., you're going to get lei'd tonight". He promptly turned bright red.
