I can hardly believe that for many of us here in the east, the season is either over or just about over.
Warm temps and rain have really put a dent in the snow pack. I know the season’s still going strong in the west — and for that, I’m truly envious — but today may have been my last day. The snow has the consistency of wet sand and is a gloopy mess after an hour or so, much of it is melting, and more rain’s in the forecast.
All in all, it’s been a great year. I skied 66 days — a record for me, especially since the season seems to be ending a bit early. Still, there are things I didn’t get around to doing; areas I meant to visit and never made it to. I guess I’ll have to leave it for next year.
