This might be the worst season ever in terms of snow for my local resort.
Instead of snow, we're forecasted to get 5 inches of rain this weekend..
I regret buying a season pass so much! :(

^ 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!

It's been a super warm winter in Tahoe this year. Last weekend, it was raining at the summit! This week we are pushing 70. Great winter for doing stuff at home, terrible winter for snowboarding and for water.

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!! :airtime: And the most important is, that we had fun! =)

^Sounds like fun, the other day when I went snowboarding with my school, we had a race and I felt a lot of forces.

It's been too damn cold to go skiing here lately. I bought a season pass this year, and there's no way I'm going to get my money's worth at this point. The next time I'm even going to have the opportunity to go isn't until the third week of March.
