I'm not counting this year. The last several years have been remarkable; the prior goal has been achieved.

Time to Break It Down Again.

I never used to count, but this is an easy way to do it. It's fun running through your season in your mind day by day when you're done.

Hopefully you didn't jinx yourself as 11/14 hasn't come yet.
The same exact thing crossed my mind as I posted it. 1 hr later a snowboarder fell just as I was passing on the right of a narrow area and his board clipped my shin just above the boot. Fucking ouch!

Isn't that a pretty standard way of greeting from a snowboarder?

You know the old joke, how does a snowboarder greet you on the slopes? "Sorry dude, I didn't even see you. . ."

I got the Utah blues. I booked flights to Utah in September for mid-December. I know that's risky, but I do it to save money, and I've had good results and bad results in the past. I was choosing between Utah and Seattle. I thought Seattle would be a better bet for snow, but its a real bitch for lodging since the national park location of crystal and stevens really limits lodging development (and stevens isn't even on MAX anymore), so I chose SLC. two years ago I did SLC around x-mas and it snowed >100 inches the week prior.

well, right now, my decision looks terrible. this graphic makes me want to just die.

it better snow soon.

CO and Utah both are off to a relatively slow start from what I hear. Did not realize that the PNW was killing it though!

December is still a ways away, I wouldn't fret yet!
