Re: How Diverse was your season

Agreed. I once went all the way across 80- Truckee to NYC- and it was brutal. My wife wants to retire to Nashville which is at least a day or so closer to where I want to be. It's still pretty far off so I have plenty of time for negotiations. I'm making the case for northwest AZ

Re: How Diverse was your season

Not super diverse and not a lot of days (maybe 18), which has become about typical for me.

Whiteface maybe 9 days.
Plattekill 2 days.
Whistler Blackcomb 3 days at one of my new resorts.
Breckinridge and A Basin 1 day each.
Zermatt 1 day at my other new resort.
Bagged my first ADK backcountry slide on Wilmington (Cooper Kiln)

Amongst those days there were 2 full on backcountry days, 4 good side-country days, 2 inbounds days that included skinning, one day in the Whiteface Slides, 3 separate hikes on the Whiteface summit, 12 of 18 days involved 6 inches of powder or better, 2 international ski experiences, my latest ever lift served skiing (Ski-o de Mayo), and in a ski life that’s seen a lot of good days perhaps the single best run of my life (so far)....



Great season, and a lot of great people met and skied with.

Re: How Diverse was your season

It was more of a quality season than a quantity one.  18 ski days from Thanksgiving to Easter.

Greek Peak - 14
Sunday River - 2
Plattekill - 1
Belleayre- 1

Memorable days were a powder day at Plattekill, about 4 powder days at GP, and an April 1st corn harvest at Sunday River to close out the season.  My only regret was not getting back to Plattekill for the March snowstorms.

Re: How Diverse was your season

My year was less diverse than my past couple seasons

Whiteface
Gore
Killington
Bolton Valley - my new resort for the season
Solitude
Grand Targhee
Stowe

More races to watch and more quality skiing this year.

I don't keep track of days, so these are mostly guesses:

10 Killington
3 Okemo
3 Pico
6 Gore
0 Whiteface (didn't miss it at all)
15ish Plattekill
1 Belleayre
1 Greek Peak
2 Sugarbush
2 Crested Butte
3 Steamboat Springs
5 Various Backcountry

So, 50ish days means less skiing that I have done in about 25 years (if I kept up a previous job, I would have added 14 West Mountain days to these numbers, but I'm fine with missing those). I don't regret not skiing on a couple of brutally cold days or rainy days, but I missed a couple of good ones with injury/work responsibilities. I also would have preferred to get to Sugarloaf/Sunday River, but I never made it out. Hopefully I'll get back up around 65-75ish next year. I'd like to save some vacation days up for an IKON tour next March.
