Well, the season is winding down, and we want to know.
Back at the start of winter we were wondering "maybe this year will be better than the last", so now's your chance to report back...

Let you know after I get back from US mid-may (Squaw) hee. Just judging from comments in forums (where on the whole people tend to have a very positive spin about thier own expeiences) and snow fall data, it would seem to have been worse than average and in some places a lot worse. Saw some mid Jan pics of Whistler and it looked horrid even if they were skiing up in the high alpine but now PNWC getting late snow Rockies esp Utah appear to have had a great season, Alps seem to have been patchy with an OK burst of snow but in a very concentrated period and fairly swift tail off. Just my 1/2p worth ready to be shot down on this

Yay go Fox -power :P

the mid-january dump out in portes du soleil was like nothing i'd ever seen before. those two weeks will live forever! plus was first time back on snow for a couple of years after dreadful injury. so yeah, definately better than last season.
This is our decision to live fast and die young. We've got the vision, now let's have some fun.
Yeah it's overwhelming, but what else can we do? Get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute?

Very true, although Mrs Cat might try to make you sleep on the futon. She's being very possessive about her sofa!

I had pretty average snow conditions this year, just not enough snow before christmas at Val d'isere and it was getting a bit warm in 2alpes the other week. But despite this I f**king LOVED IT , I'm getting loads better every time I ski and frankly I'm addicted. I'm off to NZ this summer and I'm absoluting buzzing about it. If it wasn't for the trips I took this year I think my winter would have been unbearable.

So in short, Yay for this season!, it ruled! (even if I did't get half as much snow as last year)

Bring on the Southern hemisphere powder!
Anything worth doing is worth getting hurt for

This year was much better but only because i had 9 days skiing, rather than the mere 3 days last year!

This year was loads better because after thinking I wasnt going to be able to go at all, Skiplan sent me peak season repping and I managed 5 hours a day boarding and stayed in a hotel that sold beer for a Euro a bottle!!
Quality!!
