    Just wrapped up our season at Sugarbush this past weekend. My son and I skied total of 59 days. My wife and daughter skied 49 days.

    We had 28 days in the west. With some luck, 15 out of the 28 days were powder days. The best day was at Copper in March when 20" of snow fell in 24 hours. The 2nd best was at Steamboat in Jan where 28" fell in 24 hours. The day at Steamboat was my first time skiing deep powder and I struggled in the morning. Therefore I didn't enjoy it as much as later at Copper.
    ------------------------------------
    Alta/Bird - 7 days
    Steamboat - 6 days
    Deer Valley - 6 days
    Copper - 5 days
    Brighton - 2 days
    Solitude - 2 days

    31 days in the east were mostly weekends. Snow storm this year seemed to happen mostly during mid week so I missed mostly of them and only caught 2 powder days. My best days in the east were a weekend in early Feb at Sugarbush after a mid-week storm.
    ----------------------------------
    Sunday River - 7 days (all early season)
    Sugarbush - 6 days
    Sugarloaf - 6 days
    Killington - 6 days
    Loon - 5 days
    Stratton - 1 day

    I think I take full advantage of my Ikon pass this year and already signed of for next year's Ikon. Moving to spring/summer activities now.

    30. 4/6 - Sugarbush. Nice soft turns all day. Vis was challenging at times up on Castlerock, but not so bad you couldn't see the bumps. VT ANG F-16 retirement fly-by is among one of the coolest things I have seen while on a ski slope.

    31. 4/7 - MRG. The spring day I had been waiting for. Great coverage, corn snow, and bumps pretty much everywhere. Very happy my annual trip came with stellar spring conditions.

    11/11 - K - North Ridge Homecoming
    11/17 - K - Skiing trees in November
    11/24 - Magic - Soft opening, soft powder
    11/30 - Mad River Glen - Last minute personal day, 33" leftovers, knee deep drifts
    12/01 - Smugglers - Madonna opening, 33" leftovers, calf-knee deep all day long

    12/08 - K - ~4-5" dust on crust in the woods. Rope ducks for fresh tracks all day.
    12/09 - Stratton - Oh wow, I remember why Stratton fucking sucks - the people and the terrain and everything being groomed to ice.
    12/23 - Copper - Day of arrival. Land at 9 AM. Ski at 12:30 PM. 5" storm leftovers. bluebird.
    12/24 - Copper - 5" storm skiing. Girlfriend took a group lesson - money wasted, bad instruction. Copper is kinda like Stratton of Colorado. Meh.
    12/25 - Copper - Bluebird leftovers on Xmas day.
    12/26 - Winter Park - Gave girlfriend a lesson myself. Much more useful for her. Heavy snow began around 12 PM.
    12/27 - Winter Park - 6" overnight. Bluebird.
    12/28 - Winter Park - Late start due to unusually cold temps. Gave girlfriend a lesson 12-1. Skied leftover pow 1-4:30.
    12/29 - Winter Park - Linked up with a buddy who is a less strong skier. Ended the trip on groomers and low angle trees.
    01/05 - Smuggler's - 7" leftovers - Poacher's Paradise
    01/06 - Stratton - Stratton sucks so bad.
    01/12 - Sugarbush - leftovers from big storm
    01/13 - Killington - excellent day, K skied fantastic
    01/19 - Copper - 12" leftovers, but so crowded, quality over quantity
    01/20 - A-Basin - with good friends from denver. the new beavers terrain is incredible.
    01/21 - Copper - solo...sun and snow. my parents had to put their dog down this morning. these runs were for siena
    01/26 - Sugarbush Lincoln Peak - No good, very bad. Ice. People. Barf.
    01/27 - Sugarbush Mount Ellen - Very good. Not bad. Snow. No People. No Barf.
    02/17 - Kicking Horse - 3". Hiked O-Zone and T2. So Steep.
    02/18 - Revelstoke - 5600 vertical of steeps and trees is pretty cool.
    02/19 - Revelstoke - 3". A little bit of snow to freshen things up.
    02/20 - Revelstoke - More steep skiing.
    02/21 - Banff Sunshine - Barf. Not a cool place. Short vertical. Very intermediate. The only real steeps were closed and would require avalanche gear if they were open.
    02/22 - Lake Louise - Awesome place. Amazing access to steeps. No hiking required with a shitload of steep options.
    02/23 - Lake Louise - 2". A little soft snow to end the trip.
    03/02 - Stowe - Classic
    03/03 - Mount Ellen - Inch of fresh, NoVT skiing very nice.
    03/09 - Smuggs - Beautiful spring sunshine and soft snow.
    03/10 - Magic - 5" storm skiing.
    03/23 - Mad River Glen - 30" storm total. Amazing

    03/24 - Killington - 45 and sunny. 11" storm leftovers. Radical.
    03/25 - Silverton - spring skiing in paradise
    03/26 - Silverton - cold and unforgiving, but snow in the air setting up for...
    03/27 - Silverton - HELI DROP. BEST DAY OF LIFE.
    04/06 - Killington - Bear Mountain Mogul Challenge! Logged 33k vertical. Penitence after Silverton's ~8-10k days
    04/07 - Stratton - Why do i even bother? Oh yea, because it is free and on the way home

    that's 40 and 41. best days are now bolded. unsure about this weekend. committed to next weekend. then hopefully a final killington weekend in may. will end up with 43-46 days on the season. not bad. some crappy weather (~12/15, early february) kept me from going up thrice. other than that, i only missed two weekends for life stuff - one to see the disco biscuits with my whole extended family of friends, and one to pet sit two awesome animals for our landlords. no regrets.

    4/10 was cold and cloudy. They did the best they could do but the rain soaked snow did not groom out well and then froze to add insult to injury. Groomed stuff was OK, trees very sketchy and bumps were a mess.
    4/11 was sunny and mid-40's. Groomers did a much better job after the snow drained and the sun corned up the snow. A fantastic spring day indeed. Bumps were fabulous, trees skied nicely and base is still deep.
