Just Qualified. :) No I am not, I know a few who have been in the past. Usually out in the first chair rush. Mid week I ski most of the day. Weekends it depends on how the snow holds up. Eyes open for you.

I generally ski out of Barker, first chair (In line at open, sometimes, THE first chair). I typically ski until noonish, give or take, depending on the snow. If I ski out of South Ridge, it means I have grandkids or the ski widow. Weekdays only (bronze pass).

I'll keep an eye out for you tomorrow. I generally boot up near the emergency exit by the small store at Barker.

When skiing alone, I put a lot of skiing in, ski onto the lift and ski as soon as my skis hit the snow. I never stop anywhere, my poles are ready when I hit the snow. I generally zig zag around all the people who stop after getting off the lifts to adjust something or another and put their poles and discuss where they want to ski... That kind of skiing leaves me rubber legged early in the season after a couple hours. I like it when my legs get to midseason form.

9. Lost several for various reasons. Childcare, work, weather. I was hoping for 20 this year, but that might be a stretch at this point.

17 today. stratton. mad river yesterday. every year i say to myself 'i should give southern vermont another chance, i'm too hard on southern vermont except for magic.' nope. total garbage. maybe midweek after a dump. but today was boring. i love being up and out in the mountains, but identical groomer laps all day long in late january are depressing and boring. mad river was fantastic.

27 and 490k vertical feet after hitting Bromley today while both my kids had a race there - as much as I wouldn't think of missing watching their race runs, boy do the end up cutting down my total vertical for the day by 10 to maybe 15k feet!! Lol!! Watching both kids have their best results ever today was well worth not crossing through the 500k vertical foot mark for the season I had hoped to accomplish today though!!

7th time out at the Crotch, and probably the best so far. Soft snow was a nice change from the recent hard pack conditions. Still skied a few runs in the woods but they will be toast after the next 3 days. Best snow was under the Rocket. Ski on most of the day, lack of crowds was nice but also kept anything from bumping up.

Depressing- both in number and lack of mad river valley visits:

14- 2 Stowe, 2 mount snow, 1 okemo, 1 hermitage club, 8 sundown.

22. Goal of 60 is looking like a longshot at this point. Usually pick up the pace right after Feb vacation week.

Today was day 21. I bagged it after a couple runs, too much brown snow and ledge protruding on the downhill sides of the rollers.... I want to ski, but not that bad.
