    May 1st and Mother Nature is Confused

    New snow at places like Snowbird and Abasin this time of season never surprises me.

    Similar story here, I skied Jay on the 14th/15th and had hoped to go back up during school vacation. Thought about K last Sunday but never got there. I need to make a better plan to get to 20, of course staying healthy might help.....currently stuck at 13 days. Oh well, that is 2 more than last year!

    Sad to read this thread. All that snow pack, washed away in such a short time.

    I used to do a lot of skiing in the northeast in March and April. Because, after all, who wants to gamble with a January thaw? So I used to go out west Jan/Feb and stay in the east in March and April. Somehow I fell off that schedule and went out west even in March and April. (I guess having more vacation days and places to crash in western destination has to do with it).

    Still, May in K brings back sweet memories (I'm on the injury recovery list -- planned medical procedure. So not this year)

    Yeah,

    I hear abc, on the planned medical procedure.....the halthcare professionals are still trying to figure out what screwed up late February early March, I missed 3+ weeks of skiing opportunities. My right knee is a bit interesting, I will stretch out while I watch the Bruins game tonight.

    Lat time I skied Killington in May they had a ton of trails open....2015 0r 2016 maybe? It was the best spring ski day!

    Accoring to my Facebook memories I was at Killington on this day in 2015...44 trails still open and the picture I took from the operating Canyon Quad of Downdraft and Double Dipper looks pretty sweet.

    Unfortunately a wet torchy April followed by what has been a cold rainy start to May is a buzzkill for this spring.
