Today was day 62 for me at Sugarbush. It was a helluva weekend with deep fresh snow on Saturday and back to back bluebird days on Sunday and Monday.

Jcb890... get those 2 more days man!

I think I'm at 28 too, aiming for 30 this weekend at K and Jay.

Next year I can say will almost certainly not be as ambitious as this year. Looks like the wife and I have a little tunafish on the way!


edit: guess I am at 30 already... most days on the hill I've been able to do if you don't count ski team :D

I'll get there. I was going to root you on as well, but looks like you've already gotten there, so nice work! Probably will go Sunday this weekend and then at least once or twice Easter weekend. Then I'll get to Killington at least once in May hopefully. So, 30+ seems reasonable and doable at this point.

Congrats about the little tuna!

Today was day #67 for me, one at Wildcat and the rest at Sunday River. More than double my previous best, having a great season of snow to make this happen. I'm skiing things regularly that I wouldn't do but once to say I did it. Learning new methods, and it seems the more I learn, the worse I realize my skiing is. Here's for getting better next year!

Today was day 42 and likely the end of my season. Great day to end it on weather and conditions wise at Pico. I might get one more Cannon day in next Saturday but if not no complaints. Besides when temps get over 60 I am ready for motorcycle riding season.

Some ups and downs weather wise but this is the most days I have skied in a season even though I lost the first few weeks of the season with an injury. I got good usage out of my Pico and Cannon B&B passes and I bought new skis a few weeks ago and got to break them in the past three weeks on some pretty good conditions which was an unexpected plus. All in all a great season and nice recovery from the last season. I am already thinking about where I will use the Max Pass add on next season.

14. 1/28 Sugarbush (BEST POWDER DAY EVER)
15. 1/29 Sugarbush (on/off snow fall)
16. 2/6 Mountain Creek, NJ (actually pretty good snow, but no exciting terrain open to the public)
17. 2/9 Blue Mountain, PA (powder day!)
18. 2/18 Sugarbush (that recent powder dumping left some nice stashes everywhere)
19. 2/19 Sugarbush (very warm spring day)
20. 2/20 Sugarbush

28. 3/25 Sugarbush (difficult crust on everything, but lots of deep snow under it)
29. 4/7 Sugarbush (So wet at the end of the day, but at least it was snow falling!)
30. 4/8 Sugarbush (Powder day. Best day of the season actually)
31. 4/9 Sugarbush (I am so sunburnt, but it was so worth it!)

I have finally reached my goal of over 30 days of skiing for this season. And man what a weekend to accomplish that! By far the best ski weekend of the whole season. Every day included soft turns and tons of deep snow everywhere we looked. True powder on Saturday rather than the heavy wet stuff we usually get. And then crazy soft moguls under a warm Spring sun to end the season on Sunday. I might make one more trip up or do something out West in May/June, but I am more than happy to end the season on this trip.

Brings my season pass to a grand total of $12.07 per day. Definitely my favorite way to think about that!

Had one of my best Spring days in memory at Sunday River yesterday.

Absolutely incredible.

Next weekend: 'Loafing it... (hopefully).
