    I got 36 days this past season, pretty good considering I had a new additon to the family in mid-February.

    Blue Mountain - 1
    Hidden Valley - 24
    Hunter - 1
    Mountain Creek - 5
    Mt. Peter - 5

    I didn't make it out to Bromley this year because of the new baby but we should be able to go next year. I also got a bunch of weekend days with my son this season, at 6 y.o. he's already a good skier and it's a lot of fun skiing with him.
    2013/2014 Season:
    Mountain Creek: 1/27, 2/7, 2/28, 3/11, 3/21, 3/26
    Mt. Peter: 12/21, 1/18, 2/8, 3/8

    Some highlights
    - Earliest starting date for me...11/28
    - Latest ending date for me... 4/5
    - Skied in six different months (Nov, Dec, Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr)
    - Skied at six different mountains (Blue, Killington, Camelback, Mountain Creek, Stratton)
    - Skied 32 days (smashed my old record of 22 from 2007)
    - Skied 515,415 vertical feet (old record 364,400 also from 2007)
    - Bought a new pair of skis (Nordica Jet Fuels)
    - Made some new ski buddies

    Some lowlights
    - Slow March
    - Did not get to spend as much time in Vermont as I would have liked.
    - Most likely skied my last day at Killington for a while for getting harassed by security @BMMC. I didn't post about this cause the topic was already beat to death.
    - Got chased off Blue Mountain (literally) by their Ski Patrol for skiing to fast. It was a pretty messed up situation. I had a long talk with the owner afterwords and she promised that it wouldn't happen again. Enough said.
    - Kinda had an knee injury....but not really. That's getting better every day.

    Blue Mountain, PA - 19
    Stratton, VT - 1
    Killington, VT -7
    Camelback, PA - 1
    Windham NY - 3
    Mountain Creek, NJ - 1

    This list is a bit top-heavy:

    November: 5
    December: 8
    January: 10
    February: 10
    March: 6
    April: 3
    May: 1

    Usually March is far and away my best and most-skied month but that number proves how downhill the weather went this spring. 6 might be my lowest March count in about 5 years, and only one of those days was truly great (March 2nd so barely March anyway).

    We're due for a November-April winter, let's get it next year. No more November-January or February-April seasons. And we're due for a whopper too... seems like we can't break a foot anymore.
    2003-2004: 21; 2004-2005: 27; 2005-2006: 31; 2006-2007: 31; 2007-2008: 38; 2008-2009: 43; 2009-2010: 42; 2010-2011: 46; 2011-2012: 33; 2012-2013: 26

    2013-2014 Days- 14

    Killington: 10/29, 1/22, 1/23; Suicide Six: 1/21
    Wachusett: 11/16, 11/29, 12/3, 12/10, 12/11, 12/15, 12/17, 12/18, 12/20, 1/13

    Definitely a great season, no regrets at all.



    I'm gonna put this here for prosperity's sake so I can get on with MTB:
    08/09 (36) - 10/29,11/21,11/28,11/29,11/30,12/5,12/7,12/12,12/14,12/17,12/19,12/23,12/28,1/1,1/11,1/12,1/15,1/18,1/21,1/22,1/24,1/30,2/6,2/11,2/18,2/22,2/25,3/2,3/7,3/8,3/15,3/18,3/20,3/22,3/28,4/26

    21 meets my goal of skiing more each season than the one prior as I skied 20 last year, but there was a point early February that I thought I might finish near 30 days. Work and family commitments piled up the past couple of months causing me to miss a number of opportunities.

    Thing I'm most happy about this season is the variety of areas I visited. 16 thus far, which might be a record for me for one season.

    Even though the season is still going, I'm already getting eager for next year. Hope to continue to improve my fitness over the prior season and get out additional days.
    Finished, 21 days it is. All and all I was quite happy with my season. Had some great days, skied a tremendous variety of places, met numerous other alpine zone members. Maybe next year I'll finally get going with some Tux stuff. I know there's much left to that season, but I'm giving my bulky knee a break for the next month, then will start training hard for next season.

    Pat's Peak: 11/23 ;Waterville Valley: 11/29 ; Sunday River: 12/7 ;Wachusett: 12/20 ;Tenney: 12/27, 1/10, 1/18, 1/25, 2/15 ;Crotched: 1/2 ; Sunapee: 1/4 ;Cannon: 2/1 ; Mad River Glen: 2/7; Pico: 2/8; Wildcat: 2/22
    Ragged: 3/1; Stowe: 3/6; Smuggs: 3/7, Sugarbush: 3/28, 4/26; Burke 3/29

    Good idea. Here's mine:

    I finished the lift-served season with 101 days. There were many highlights including a fabulous opening on Halloween and the always fantastic Tahoe trip. The best part is always sharing the slopes with friends and family and there were many highlights in that arena, from early turns and Friday nights with Bobr and crew to midweek nights and racing with my 100-day brother, Terry. We both set the goal early on and stuck to it. Terry is a beast! Love it!
    New novel coming out in May... The Lighthouse Society

    2011-2012: 61 lift served days...

    Looks like I am probably done at 100 days. Would like to get in another hike but I have put off lots of stuff this winter and need to tend to them now. It was an awesome season, and JerryG and I both made our goals! Had fun skiing with you Jer on cold nights, racing, and at SR and the Loaf. Great times with the SR crew, and the Shawnee crew all season. Lots of memories to carry me into next season. T, you need to get going on that movie!
    skiing is not just an activity, it is a lifestyle!
