Not that the season is necessarily over but on a scale of 0-10, what grade would you give it?
Note I ask you to rate your season - so personal factors enter into it, along with snowfall/conditions/etc wherever you happened to be.
At this point I'd give it an 8+. That may be a tough grade given that I'd also consider it my best season ever, but though I skied lots of fresh powder I never did have a truly epic pow day (i.e. I did not have an opportunity to visit the white room).
Lots of memorable skiing though - total of around 35 days out (by far a personal record) including a dozen skinning on five different local hills (first season I've gotten serious about earned turns) plus about 10 days of free skiing as a chaperone for my kids' school programs at Bradford.
A number of firsts, including my first trek up Mount Washington (no higher than Little Headwall because of avy danger but a great day, skiing from there to the car) and my personal first descent of Paradise at MRG (on April Fool's Day, though best of all I managed not to make a fool of myself on that run). Both cases involved some measure of conquering fear, which is an interesting process.
Several days involved skiing two different places the same day, including Middlebury/Whaleback and Mt Wash/Black. Great deep first tracks on Wilderness Peak at Bolton Valley, again the fruits of skinning. First visits to Middlebury, Black, Mittersill and Sugarbush. Fantastic back-to-back powder days toward the end of Presidents Week with my sons at MRG and Magic, my two favorite mountains, and hooking up with good friends at the latter. Just generally feeling I'm skiing better than ever, including in the trees, and absolutely loving my 09-10 Gotamas in all but the most firm conditions.
As I say, I'm a tough grader - even after all that I was thinking 7+ because I hadn't had a primo spring skiing day. Logistics and weather were conspiring against me on this - until the past Friday at Sugarbush, with corn as good as it gets. So now I'm up to an 8+. Still holding out hope to hit a 9 with at least one return visit to Mt Wash.
