^ I can understand you, some winters here we had time to go skiing just a few times because we didn't had enough snow. This year we have now much snow, but only since middle of January!

I'm happy to go skiing tomorrow, even if it is going to be clowdy!

^^That sucks, we got hit with some really warm weather around Christmas so ALL of our snow melted, but after a few weeks the weather started to get cold and now we have tons of snow. We have not gotten any weather over 1 degree since January.

^ you're a lucky guy, because I was skiing today and the weather was horrible. The upper half of the Mountain was inside the fog, the under half was under the fog. It also was snowing and winding! But one thing was cool: no lines and not too many people on the slopes! Otherwise some slopes looked like nobody went there for today and they also were in the fog!

Today I went snowboarding and it was great. All powdery and great temperature (-15C). I also found some awesome back-country kind trails with tons of snow. But I hit my nose and it started to bleed a ton when I was doing my 360. But right now everything is okay.

^ cool

Yesterday evening I went sledging in the dark! (I know it isn't Skiing or Snowboarding, but it is a Winter sport) The cool was that we didn't had to walk up because we were sitting on the sledges and the ski lift pulled us up! And down we were also pretty fast, around 60kph (nearly 40mph)! A few times I nearly felt off the sledge, but I stayed on it! Once I had short Airtime!! And the most important is, that we had fun!

Today I went skiing at Klosters-Davos. The weather was sunny, but windy on top of the summit. There were quite a few other people, but not too many. The snow was also really good. There was a Ski-Cross track with LOTS of bunny hops, which give you nice airtime! There were several Bunny Hops in a row and that several times!

I had a cool day.

I went skiing a month ago. I found it one of the hardest, most painful experiences of my life. I couldn't walk my feet hurt so bad (Maybe, I'm a wimp )

It's also very hard to put on one of your skis while the other is sliding off.

I found it hard to stop, and I fell down about 12 times.

Eventually, I gave up. Certainly not something for me.

But, I can see why some enjoy it as a hobby!

I'm so glad I didn't get a pass this year. It's been beyond terrible. Barely any snow.

 

I usually do a trip to Tahoe each year in March but I didn't this year. I didn't even buy the Snowbomb Pass like I have other years. Now I'm glad I didn't. I got lucky the two times I hit the slopes this season that the snow was "good enough" - Badger Pass in December and Bear Mountain/Snow Summit (Big Bear) on Super Bowl Sunday. I also got comped tickets both times: Birthday ticket at Badger Pass and I won a ticket from KROQ for Bear Mountain.

 

It seems like the last few seasons have been bad here in CA except for right after a storm. This year, though, it was bad for the whole West. I met people from Calgary, Canada a week ago that said there was hardly any snow there this season and that it has been in the 60s there recently. Global Climate Change may be finally having a toll on our ski seasons unfortunately.

I just started school in Utah this year. I picked up skiing and it's amazing here! I'd been skiing before, but never like on mountains like the ones in Utah. Unfortunately it was a pretty bad season so I only went a few times, but I'd definitely love to get even more into it in the future. Perhaps I'll travel around and try out different spots in the country. Take this with the knowledge that I haven't skied much outside of Utah, but IMO it's the best place in the US to ski. The snow is incredible and the resorts are great.

I'm bummed that I never got to go Snowboarding this past winter AT ALL. I'm probably gonna make up for it by splurging on my university's annual ski trip for a second time to another major resort this upcoming winter.
