    Right on HPD. Until last summer, the end of the ski season would really bum me out and I would spend all summer thinking about and wishing it was ski season. I think I'll be able to cope much better this year with the MTB opportunities.

    I ski double black diamonds.

    I go day by day, if the conditions/weather are good for MTB, then I do that, if its good for skiing I do that. I had hoped to go MTBing tonight, but not enough ice and too much snow... ARGH!!!! I suppose there's always snowshoeing, but that's just hiking... Realistically DH skiing is not in the cards every time I want to, its too expensive and too much time.

    It's not so much that I'm "wishing my life away".. it's just that it's been on my mind lately, though not intentionally. I'm enjoying ski season, but I'm also looking forward to MTB season. Perhaps the rain has brought about these warmer weather thoughts...

    I can't wait until MTB season gets here. Then again I am just really looking forward to getting some trail time on my new ride. However I still have a few parts to purchase before its done.

    I'm headed out to do a ride tomorrow morning (Feb 1) at 8:30 at the Snip in Somers/Ellington CT if anyone else is interested in a little espionage.

    Treachery will be met with punishment apparently. Conditions at Snip were barely rideable. We walked a bit. We climbed up to the summit twice on the snow covered roads and descended on the singletrack. The downhills were really pretty insane with a narrow path of packed snow covering the steep trails. It was a lot of fun and my legs are pretty thrashed, but not sure I would suggest it as a ride right now.

    Winter is not ready to relinquish the trails yet.

    Incidentally, I actually had a MTB dream yesterday that I was riding on the snow.

    One pic (Severine - if you haven't ever ridden in the snow, you should try it. In the right conditions (unlike today apparently) riding in the snow is a complete gas. Double wheeled slides, locked up rear tires around corners, its all so cool. It's also good for skills development as well, balancing without firm footing:

    Seeing as I have a hard enough time riding on the regular ole dirt, snow might be a bit out of my league right now. But it definitely would be a way to vary things and really check your skills!
