    I will give 2010/11 a solid 7. I really had a great year - lots of days, made some new friends and had some break throughs. Skied spring bumps competently (e.g., Ripsaw at SL) and skied the backside for the first time. Had a great time at Saddleback and Camden Snowbowl. I would have liked to have skied more New England resorts, returned to Quebec and skied out west. Maybe next year.

    Not that great. My ski seasons were the best, by far, when I was in college several years ago. It's harder to come up with the same time nowadays. End whine.

    Definitely the best season I've had in ten years. Most days out since retiring from ski bum life. I was satisfied with my physical conditioning, which plays the biggest part in how well I ski these days. I probably skied the most different areas I ever have in one season. Only real short comings were a couple of rained out days in the spring, was too lazy to get up on Washington yet again and I really had hoped to try and check out a couple of Quebec areas. Hopefully next season I can get to those 'to dos'.

    Way too much work intruded on my skiing. I had more days in metro-Philly in some Comcast hell-hole building than I did living at the ski area. When I was around, I had conference calls scattered through the day that made it really tough to sneak out for a few runs.

    I can't really put a number on it.

    It was nice to spend a year back east, see family, ski with some awesome folks (many on this board along with the sr board), hit a consistent season for Maine. Took a trip out west for 10 days and chased a great storm for 1600 miles! Got to Open up at Sunday River/Closing day @ the loaf. Probably hit 55-60 days and made $$$$ at the same time.

    At the same time October can't come fast enough. Fun time back east is over. I've had 4! days off since Memorail day and none in sight. Looking to take one full week here before driving back out and enjoy all the goodness that New England has to offer in Mid-October.

    I'm ready to hit the road. Next season is about redemption, I'm not positive exactly where I'm going but you can sure as fuck bet it's somewhere that will make for a good time!

    Snoseek, I'm starting to envy your lifestyle. If I make a trip out west this year or next I'll look you up. I regret hurting myself so I couldn't ski with you this year.

    Working up through the hospitality industry is truly a bitch but really pays off if being mobile is important. There is always a decent job waiting almost everywhere and generally the cooler the place, the cooler the job.


    Not much to envy this time of year

    When my 85 hour weeks drop to 50 hour weeks after Labor Day we should get some beers over there in Newmarket.

    Oh and trips west are always a good idea.

    yes

    definitely swing by Newmarket for some beers before you head west.

    Compared to what I should've had from the accumulations = not good...21days, hardly any of those days included a full day stayover, particularly when other AZ members were up @SL. Grabbed a couple more part-time system support jobs last year and ended up bound to the neighborhood...10min from my PC and phone Really looking forward towards a better season, both time and snowtime-wise.

    Nice video. I particularly like the Reggae mix thrown in
