    Quit my job. Move to Chamonix and ski there for a season.

    I logged in to basically make this same thread... you worded it better than I was going to.

    So #1, on the weight. I was up to 217 lbs in 2016. PTL I am now down to a pretty steady 193 lbs (and have been under 200 lbs the entire season). BIG difference! I mean -- I decided to lose weight to avoid turning into a fatso -- mainly limiting portions and avoiding processed foods... but if you a strong skier and lose 20+ lbs you'll notice you're a lot more agile and possibly less prone to injury as well.

    GOALS ... oh yes. Summer is all about contemplating the next season. Heck, late season too.

    So.

    - Would like to get in some days / weekends with my wife again, did not pan out that way with a newborn baby this season

    - Aiming to get up to Jay Peak in December, or really whenever they start seeing massive snow and woods are in play before anywhere else. Doesn't seem reasonable to save Jay for late spring only.

    - Ski Mad River Glen more, on the best days.

    - Hopefully ski Magic more, assuming we have an OK snow season.

    - Smuggs is one mountain I just haven't been too very often, mostly due to inconvenience of getting there. Try to work on changing that.

    - Go into the season with strong legs due to summer/fall biking... avoid knee pain + injury while skiing

    - Try to get my fitness to the point where I can ski an extra hour or so before the legs go limp

    - Still trying to make it to Gore when their woods are in play

    Probably going to be another mostly solo powder-chasing-in-VT season.

    Nah but next time I do an overnight in Barre I'll try to make sure Smuggs doesn't get overlooked.

    Probably try to reduce/eliminate Stowe + Bolton trips to make it happen.

    Get new boots and new sticks.

    Still need to knock Gore, Whiteface, Jay, Sugarloaf, Tucks, and others off my list before my time on this coast is finished.

    I got 83 days in this year to my own surprise. 100 is a possibility next year...unlikely...but if I'm at 90 in early April I'm going for it.
    2017-2018 80 Days and counting...

    If I can get about a dozen solo days in, I'll be happy. Mainly Wildcat with some days at Magic, Black and Whaleback as well. I bought a McIntyre pass for next year to go along with my Peak Pass as Mac is 40 minutes away which will be good for short sessions with my 3 year old and it includes 3 days a piece at Magic, Whaleback, Black and a few others. Solid deal at $239

    Several excellent points....

    1. Drop Weight and really get in shape.
    2. Ski early in the season, not skipping November/December like I did this year...wasn't feelin' it!
    3.Refine skills from late season lesson.
    4. Enjoy having a ski pass and using it!!!! (Magic)
    5. Ski Cannon.
    6. Use my personal days!!!
    Ski it like you stole it!
