    Your Official 2004-2005 Ski Season Breakdown Thread

    I started a thread like this last year. Along with the poll above, let's use this thread to discuss our individual ski seasons. How many times did you get out? Was this above or below average? How would you classify your ski season overall? For me I got out 25 times so far as follows:



    Berkshire East (2 days) - 1/24/05, 2/20/04
    Catamount (2 days) - 1/30/05, 3/25/05
    Jiminy Peak (4 days) - 12/11/04, 12/29/04, 1/7/05, 1/9/05
    Hunter Mountain (1 day) - 12/30/04
    Loon Mountain (4 days) - 3/14/05, 3/15/05, 3/16/05, 3/17/05
    Mad River Glen (1 day) - 2/10/05
    Magic Mountain (1 day) - 3/4/05
    Ski Butternut (2 days) - 12/28/04, 4/1/05
    Ski Sundown (2 days) - 12/17/04, 1/23/05
    Sugarbush (3 days) - 2/11-2/12/05, 2/25/05
    Sugarloaf/USA (3 days) - 4/8-4/10/05

    This was my busiest season so far and certainly my best. My goal was twenty days and I beat that so I'm satisfied. Some highlights include:
    • Revisits after a number of ski season to Catamount, Hunter (with AZer JimG. and buddy Karl) and Sundown
    • A day at the Beast after a 18-24" dump the day before
    • Skied three new areas in Magic, MRG and Sugarbush
    • A powder day at MRG
    • First visits to Sugarbush and Castlerock
    • The AZ South gathering at the Beast
    • Four great days at Loon
    • Three bluebird days at Sugarloaf and a chance to ski with AZers Bob R, ALLSKIING and Terry
    A great season for me indeed. It's unfortunately now over for me and time to start getting some stuff done around the house.
    Here's to next season!
    I ski double black diamonds.

    Dissappointing

    I didn't get out nearly as much as I'd have liked. Basically, my son is now 2 years old and I want to spend more time with him and he wants to spend more time with me so I didn't make it to the mountain as much to patrol.

    I did, however, get him on skis for the first time. He loved it and we'll have him back on skis next year.

    Anyway, the only good thing right now is I'm headed to Tahoe next week for some last season skiing and they've been getting pounded lately. Should be decent conditions.

    Well, here is a summary of what I've done so far:

    34 days out, was aiming for 30, but 35-37 will be great!

    Poor weather has claimed 5-6 days which is disappointing, but oh well...

    Other highlights:

    * 4 days skiing with AZers. (Very fun).

    * 1 day skiing with RSNers (fun as well).

    * First ski vacation--five days at Sunday River (two powder days... ).

    * A Number of powder days...I think 5 or so.

    * Some incredible spring skiing at Burke, Cannon, Loon, Pats, and Sunday River!!!

    * Five new mountains (Loon, Nashoba, BEast, Ski Ward, Wachusett).

    * Lots of great variety.
    Live, Ski, or Die!

    I posted my list on this thread.

    I only got out 10 times, but since I could only do weekend day trips and holidays I guess that's not too bad...

    Kidding around dept:

    You've never seemed to be a fan of "Flatton" from any of your posts that I have read, and yet you skied there not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR times this season. You may have fooled us in the past on this board, but it is becoming obvious you are a member of the Stratton Mountain Club and most likely own a condo there.
