When does your season end? - Page 3

post #61 of 72
Well rayonline I hope you were able to pick up a pass before Ruapehu closed off the early season's passes today?? if not there is always the spring passes in Sept. I managed to get mineand I have been envious of all the n.american comments over the past 7 months. I have been going through withdrawl since Turoa ended in Oct last year!!!  but when it really hit home was as camping finished in Ohope in Jan. Yes another kiwi (ex-canuck) skier here waiting for the season to start in 5 weeks, snow base permitting,  but I'd really love to get back down onto the s.island again to Queenstown and Cardrona out of Wanaka! Greetings too to rmerry   and Tony Crocker I hope you are able to get your fix when you visit here downunder in July!!   www.snow.co.nz  www.mtruapehu.com

My season just ended on May 1st at Sugarloaf. 
Temps in the 70's and big slush bumps all over the place on multiple trails. 
Perfect ending to the season on a spectacular mountain.

May skiing has been ridiculous in the PNW. Mid thigh 19F and bluebird @ 9,000 ft. Maybe  two hundred people on the whole mountain. 85 days looking to hit 90 this season. Here ya go Trod.

I got my bluebird pow on yesterday, followed it up with 20 miles on the mountain bike. God Iove Oregon. I should have got here much sooner in life.

Oregon is no where near as good as Colorado. Everybody loves Colorado. No need to move to the wet slushy NW.

Looking at the forecast, i think we're done with powder days this season...at least below 7000'.

Well it's good for me since my company paid me to move here, and my parents live in Reno. So i get free lodging whenever I feel like driving 8 hrs and doing the Tahoe thing.
That and I love the option of lift served skiing year round.
That being said. My company kicked around the notion of relocating to Colorado. I wouldn't have felt bad about it.

REALLY, everyone loves Colorado, that is a bit of a rash generalization, won't you say.

Donkey: You know what else everybody likes? Parfaits. Have you ever met a person, you say, "Let's get some parfait," they say, "Hell no, I don't like no parfait"? Parfaits are delicious. 
Shrek: No! You dense, irritating, miniature beast of burden! Ogres are like onions! End of story. Bye-bye. See ya later.

I've worked in CO off and on for a few years and I liked Colorful Colorado. But ya got no frig'n water, your fish are what we use for bait and ya call bushes trees. Anyway,I'm going out on the deck drink a beer and watch Mt.St.Helens blow up for the second time.

Me season ends when "They pry it from my cold, dead hand".  (As I brandish my Nordica Hellcats above my head...)
