Maybe cross country shouldn't be counted for this poll, but it is skiing.

So I'm assuming you meant this season, and not pure Nordic skiing. At any rate, the results of your poll might be different, depending.
(I'm not counting Nordic golf course outings, for example.)

For me, I meant Alpine skinning - "earning my turns," sometimes close to the ski areas, but not at or on them, unfortunately.
Appropriate for "social distancing."
Up in the nearest mountains, shortest drives.

I'm not (yet) in shape for skinning so much, so up only one of the places I've been going to, have I actually reached slopes for good open Alpine turns. The others are long approach trails through the woods and high valleys, with mostly a narrow tracked trail downhill on the way back.

When I was younger, half dozen or more of these uphill trails I could comfortably get above timber line on, to real open powder ski slopes - for sometimes as many as half a dozen runs/climbs per day. Not anymore, so far.

Haha i meant since april 25 1992
Can I change your title to clarify?
I clicked no, but that is wrong based on this reply.
I am usually skiing into May at the very least and usually into June if I can get to Mammoth.

This poll is flawed. My ski season is ALWAYS over by April 15....
That's your fault. ;)
You've been invited to come west and ski with us multiple time.

Yes Inpive in Japan atm, some areas of Shiga were open until they declared national emergency just recently. Actually had an epic powder day at the start of April there

Poll is this year, not since dinosaurs roamed. :nono:
Until yesterday, no. Patch skiing is different. For one it takes a while to get down because you have to walk to the next patch. Plus, as soon as you figute out the snow and get a rhythm, you have to stop. Some patches you walk sideways a 100 ft to descend twenty on skis. Because, by that time you’ll be damned after all that walking if you let some snow go unskied.
