Big reason #2 for me not skiing for the past couple of years. I've turned into a snow snob. Not sure when it actually happened but I don't want to ski hard pack bs anymore. There I said it.

The stuff I want to ski at GP simply isn't open anymore. It's nobody's fault other than we don't get the POW like we used to, or when it's around I can't go. To lap ________ (insert any trail) I'll be bored after 4 runs. Gawd I sound old now --- LOL!

Plain and simple. I get much more enjoyment out of riding my sled during marginal conditions than I do skiing. And like you said Trax is always there and they welcome the smell of 2 stroke

Re: Greek Peak Conditions

I hear that. I don’t really need to ski on marginal conditions. The only reason I’ve been getting out as much as I have the last few years is because it’s what I do with Cody.

I did get some “front side skis” for hard pack this fall



I’ve been wanting something more versatile for a long while now. Floppy fat skis kind of suck when it’s not snowing.

not to turn it into a anti ski discussion...I still love skiing, but only when conditions are right..soft snow, no crowds and no sub zero temps..

LOL -- I told the guys I ski with that the only time you'll see me on the hill is when I can ride my Patron's. That was 2 years ago --- Long fat skis are the bomb!

I'm right there with ya bro

In no way is it anti skiing. I'd sooner think is more of a been there done that kinda thing and I don't need to do it anymore.

No need to suffer any more. It’s all about quality over quantity these days.

Re: Greek Peak Conditions

I am still into skiing in shitty conditions. I don’t have the freedom to choose. When I have time to go I go. Wall to wall hockey rink is the only thing that will make for a one-and-done day for me

This drives a lot of holiday and weekend skiing.  Kids.

Up until 2 years ago I was the exact same way Broski. Did not matter what the conditions or weather was like, I got first chair. Did it for years and years. Won't do it anymore.

I have a buddy who is a private coach for a few kids at GP. Ove the summer he asked me  if I'd be willing to help him from time to time with setting up gates, etc, etc. If there's no snow to ride I told him I'd help him. I am looking forward to that a few times this year.

Yep.  That's why I'm driving 4 hours to Massanutten in January a couple of times.  Once with my daughter in college to meet up with friends just before winter break is over. Then over MLK weekend with my friend and her two kids.  They all learned at Mnut with the help of ski school, and then became Altaholics for spring break trips. :-)
