well, thank god i'm heading to CO in 4 days as things are looking very bad here in the mid-west. I've not been out yet this year.
I'm not sure we are going to have a winter as this point. all ski hills in the southern part of state have been closed for days (I believe most were only able to open a few days this year) and those open up-north barely have enough snow. I'm hope this is a freak year.

I hear ya .... There's no natural snow to be found around here. It's RAINING today. But we do have some of the man-made stuff. Even so, I have yet to see a fully-covered area.

same here, talk about depressing: it's currently 40F (southern MI) raining hard, and the 10-day forcast shows highs > 40 everyday!

I went riding today. Last week, we had spring snow. Today, it was loose, frozen crystals. Not as bad as I had thought it would be, and it reminds me of the definition of an expert skier/rider--someone who can ride all terrain, in all snow conditions. In other words, suck it up and go.

It's easy to think that if there's no snow at home, it's not on the hill. I know very well that this is false, but it's easy to be deceived, or perhaps the better word is to be dispirited and not bother checking out the snow conditions.

But then again, I hear you about Michigan. Some folks I know were planning a nordic trip to Michigan, and it was cancelled for lack of good snow.
