    Yeah it was a pretty good season.

    December was a little boney. It started snowing right at Christmas- like it usually does. January was excellent. The remainder of the year was pretty nice. Great skiing. I got to ski a lot. Mrs. SIJ had a great season as well, she skied more than me.

    Again, the storm cycle in January was one for the record books.

    Its bike season now.

    It was a great season for me. I got about 40 days in before it all closed down. Lots of great pow days early on, not too shabby for desk jockey like myself. Most of my days were with the kid who improved dramatically this year. Last day of the year was race day.

    Had an ok season. Skied a fair amount. Went to some new places, and generally had a good time, even though conditions weren't always cooperative. Bummed the lift served season ended early, but should get some good tours in over the next few weeks.

    Didn't take many pics this year, but a couple from some good touring days:

    Finally snowed on the last day of the season. Still had a great season. Only 25 days of lift served, but it looks like I'll be getting in some more touring than I thought. Saturday was amazing. Found a untracked chute that people kept bypassing on a traverse. Finally hit is my third time through. First turn was a safety turn, making sure I was in soft snow, not sure how deep below the ice layer was, second turn a tad more aggressive, then I realized I could open it up. Came flying out and had my best three turns of the season. After 24 days of different versions of packed, hard packed and very hard packed snow, it was such joy to be in deep fluff. Then the season ended a short while later.

    January trip to SLC >

    9 days and 90 of fresh. That was a winner. A definite top 5 day ever and a couple more that made me think about that statement.

    Got daughter on U10 ski team and skied more shitty conditions back East than I ever have. Had a blast watching her improve and only 1 of 45+ days on local hill did I struggle to find anything positive to say about the experience.

    Wasnt ready to quit, but damnit Ill take it.

    I had a great time this season. Skied more blower than the last 2 combined, probably skied more days than the last 2 combined. Relocated from a weather-shadowed race mountain to a world class powder resort, hired into patrol, spent all my free time in the backcountry. Took very few photos, made it without injury, no gear issues. Time to get a sunburn.

    Great idea, phatty! I ended up with about 24 days this year. Not as many deep days as I would have liked, but got to ski with my son in UT and got to sneak a Whistler trip in with all the kids but one right before the shutdown. Would have loved a beautiful spring skiing session to end the season, but all in all I cannot complain.

    Got down to Jackson to enjoy some sweet January laps at the village thanks to Maggot of the Year Djongo. Had a pretty good first season at a new hill after a bittersweet departure from the fun that is BB after 21 seasons. Hoping for some more turns but I dont quite get after it like I used to. Looking forward to some good spring stoke from crazies, t-roots, beartooths etc. Get some boys.

    Some highs and lows to my season.

    Only got 3 days in this season, but they were pretty memorable days. Memorable not only because they were the first 3 days I've ever spent in Jackson Hole in some of the softest conditions I've encountered but also because a close friend of mine who was supposed to come on the trip passed in an accident several weeks prior. We were at Whistler last year and I was stoked to be riding with him again seeing as how he hadn't boarded in almost a decade and assumed he'd hung it up.

    And now this Coronavirus BS. Hope everyone made the most of theirs before this turn of events.

    P.S. I couldn't help but grin inside and think about this forum when I was in the tram line and a scraggly local walking to the end muttered just loud enough for everyone to hear "Ikon't believe this"

    I got 15 days in all in Utah, which is not bad considering I live in NC. The only silver lining is my 16 and 14 year were on the cusp of skiing better than me and now I have bragging rights for one more summer.

    This is a wall-hanger for sure. That is some solid vapor trail stoke right there.
