Rate This Season So Far

Whatever season it is, whatever time of year, however long this thread lasts.

For me, to date, this is my best season.  I give it an 8, so far.

I've had five days that were truly excellent, and the rest have all been good. My days are down, only 13 total, usually by now I am close to 20.

I know most will be like "BS Harv."  Whatev.

Day 03 - 12/02/19 - Hunter - Thanksgiving Monday POW - 18 inches
Day 04 - 12/07/19 - Plattekill Opening Day POW -  20+ inches
Day 05 - 12/22/19 - Greek Peak - Poach and Schralpfest
Day 09 - 01/05/20 - Gore Mountain Pow Trees awesome
Day 10 - 01/08/20 - McCauley Powder Odyssey - Top 10 Lifetime

This day gets honorable mention for a few runs of untracked trees in the am:

Day 13 - 01/18/20 - Gore Mountain Low Tide Pow, plus full HQ PM trackout

How you doin?

5/10

Best skiing was in early December at Killington.
Pre Xmas skiing at Tremblant was okay.
This past Sunday at Gore was pretty good and I did put first tracks in Double Barrel which was cool.

Re: Rate This Season So Far

This is my second season on skis! It’s definitely better than last season because I am skiing harder terrain (diamonds, moguls) with better technique (learned to carve and have upper/lower separation), and falling 80% less often! Last season I skied a total of 25 days. Right now I am at 24 days, and I have a season pass. Shooting for 50-60 days by end of April. I have skied two powder days this season, and four new mountains! #epic

You have been hitting some awesome places at the right time, Harv. I was in Vermont on 12/02 when I saw those Hunter totals, and said, damn. Screwed again.

I was there too Harvey. I am bummed we didn’t have a chance to meet! Amazing day, wasn’t it? What were you skiing? I stayed on Belt Parkway the whole day.

I'll give it a weak 5 thus far.  It once again led off amazingly.  I started off on 12/7 and Magic had plenty of pow.  By the following week, one trail was open.  After that it's been plenty of rain, and very warm temperatures (think 12/28, 1/11).

Part of that is due to work and lack of time off when the snow was good. Part of that is due to the frequent weather related challenges this season has thrown our way. It has been a fickle season that has rewarded those with the most flexibility, no particularly deep days in the trees yet... not that I've even been in the trees yet this season, which is pretty abnormal for me by late January.
