Such a bummer this season has been. Just checked the forecast and nothing coming until towards the end of the month if we are lucky and that doesn't go away. Have been sledding since the mid 90's and this is starting to rank up in the top 5 worst seasons.

By the end of March-Mid April we start to take the quads out and this year with almost 0 base even if it does start to snow REALLY good it will be mid/late Feb before there is enough base to get off trail.

We are riding at the coast tomorrow, very sorry indeed!

This summer I need to drag the quads out and make a dune trip with ya :face-icon-small-hap

This was taken on my birthday, 12-23-17. Mt Adams, probably 5 miles from the closest trail :party:

yard. We have been riding right from our house.

Bought a snowblower for the tractor finally after last year, snowed in October so I put the blower on. My Dad said "you just guaranteed it wont snow"

Well he was right... ****.!

Man this sucks. Saw dudes in spandex riding road bikes up to bachelor yesterday.

I wish but not seeing it happening, high here of almost 65 today, showers maybe tomorrow and Friday so I can see very little coming for the weekend. Gonna be helping a buddie start building his shop who helped me build mine probably next weekend so unless it dumps big I'm gonna be out for awhile. The season of no snow continues...

So when do we get nervous? This is essentially the same program as 2 years ago. We ended up with low river levels, and HUGE fires all summer long! It's going to be February in 2 weeks, and here the West sits with no snowpack, the rain just flushes down the rivers and keeps the ocean full.

When do we get nervous? Me, I think we have 4 weeks to gain SUBSTANTIAL snowpack in the Cascades or we are in deep doo doo this summer! We can, and probably will get snow in places after that mid February mark, but typically the freezing level is higher, and it doesn't really help the 6 month outcome.

Thoughts?
