    IF you are on a snowboard, I am betting ONLY one of us will be at DV. :)

    In classic MN fashion, yesterday most the entire state was hovering around 1 degree, -15 windchill. Temperatures predicted for this weekend? 40 degrees. :huh:

    It is ZERO* this morning at home, gonna skip first tracks this morning and leave an hour latter than normal

    I patrol tonight and not going home before I go to hill. It has been snowing so far all morning and my skis at the hill are Head Rebels and Rosi Exp83s.

    Dang I could of brought my Head Kore 105s or 4Frnts Devastators. :( The snow was not forecasted either.

    Everyone’s left, there’s barely anyone here. What if I fall out there and need help? Clumsy happens. Could really take a while.

    And I’m on new skis to which I’ll need to adjust. What a pain.

    At least you all are skiing, we had to close on Tuesday because of rain and warm temps, it looks like a week before we get cold enough to make snow again.

    Yeah, that green stuff...recently we're getting sort of frequent snow falls but it always ends with rain, at least at lower elevations. I have yet to do backcountry skiing this season because of that.

    Pretty good. Telluride looked bleak.
    Isn't that the guy who did the "footrest yo!" vid?

    Missing the sound of the snowblower. Seems like it has been a month. Less than a inch to shovel this morning. Hope on the horizon.

    You need to fly me out to you. Than I can teach you how to bitch about good snow.

    Inches of rain yesterday, a week after 6" of snow. Wed night shift will be 10 degrees. Bring on the ice, I mean hard packed snow.

    I find it difficult to bitch about weather at the moment, we have had 24” in the past 3 days. Today will be EPIC

    I am coming your way regardless. My son plays lacrosse at Utah on 2/1. We are flying in early, skiing, going to the game then skiing for a few days before heading home. Great excuse for a little trip to Utah.

    Oh c'mon... you can do it! If you just use your imagination, and try real, real hard, I'm sure you can find something to bitch about. You did a nice job with "It's windy." Channel that inner curmedgeon!!!!

    Otherwise, please leave. ;)

    Of the 7 days out so far this season: only 4 have been powder days. 2 had a quite a bit of wind affected snow. Only 1 was over the knees.
    To make matters even worse I have not been able to use my season pass, for my home mountain, and they have the best snow!

    Life can be so unfair.
