    longest mid-season gap in skiing i've ever had. i was fiending by the end of this 23 day drought. one weekend of bad weather, another weekend of life stuff. then western canada.

    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.

    I love western canada, but i'd be lying if i did not say i was bummed to be committed to my destination while CO, CA, WA, and UT were all skiing super deep. first world problems. was a fun trip and i skied world class steeps.

    Now that I'm done through the end of Feb...

    1. Sunday River 11/13 (7" powder)
    2. Wachusett 11/18 (Opening weekend crunchies)
    3. Wachusett 11/19 (Cream cheese pt 1)
    4. Killington 11/20 (8" powder)
    5. Wachusett 11/25 (Cream cheese pt 2)
    6. Loon 11/27 (12" powder)
    7. Sunday River 12/4 (Freeze-up day and windholds)
    8. Wachusett 12/20 (Bad)
    9. Wachusett 12/23 (Somehow much better AFTER 2" of rain)
    10. Solitude 1/13 (Crusty)
    11. Snowbird 1/14 (Crusty, but want to go back and really experience it)
    12. Deer Valley 1/15 (Light snow...great runs in Daly Bowl)
    13. Alta 1/16 (15" powder)
    14. Sugarbush 1/21 (-15 degrees with 40 mph winds...fun!)
    15. Mad River Glen 1/22 (wind slabs!)
    16. Sugarbush 2/3 (Classic east coast rock-solid bump day)
    17. Jay 2/4 (Cream cheese on naturals)
    18. Burke 2/5 (Woods closed, primo spring conditions on open natural trails)
    19. Sunday River 2/18 (Couple inches during day to freshen it up)
    20. Sugarloaf 2/24 (Wind holds galore, 6ish inches of powder by end of day)
    21. Sugarloaf 2/25 (14" powder, 1st run injury, 100something mph winds, radio tower destruction day)

    Unless this back thing is worse than I'm thinking it is, looking forward to an epic March...Stowe/Smuggs weekend, more Ikon days at Killington, Sugarbush, and maybe more, plus a return to SLC. Laying low the next few days in hopes this gets better.

    21. 3/3 - Gore. Groomers ranged from great to yikes. Woods were not in play. They got iced bad from last Sundays event. That being said, conditions on the groomers were better than anticipated. So much base, the mountain is in great shape for spring turns when they come.
