Rivercoil hit it right on the head. Last year we never got down to zero base at this point in the year. We are hovering at zero base in the woods in much of New England right now (some places further north still have a foot in the woods but they want to preserve it like they're holding on to a purse of f*cking diamonds and nobody can ski it until they get more snow).
Problem is the weather outlook for the next several weeks sucks. More of the same shit.
I will ski in the woods with 3 inches of snow in the spring and I will purposefully ski at the places that won't kick me out or give me crap for doing so. And it's starting to look like that's going to be the plan this year.
Gotta give the ski areas credit they really ramped it up with snowmaking this year. But you just can't get by on one or two decent storms in a season followed by summer in January and spring in February.
I'm kinda pissed right now..
