For many of you, you may still have a lot of snow at your house. unfortunatley I don't. we had a big dump less than two weeks ago and it's gone already. So I've delt with what snow i had left for my set-up but today I just ran out. I pulled out the turf and from now until next december ill be riding without snow, unless we get more snow here which is highly unlikely. How many of you have resorted to your summer set-up?
San Diego, CA. About 50 minutes from the Mexico/US border. Nearest mountain in Mt. High, 101 miles and usually congested roads, or Bear Lake resorts (Snow Summit, Big Bear) Which are 81 miles but a ton of traffic coming up the mountain. Mexican families park in the freeway lanes on the way up to play in the snow, unfortunately making a 3 lane road into a 1 lane sketchy as hell Donner party crossing.
Wow, you're spoiled. In the PNW this the valleys' least snowiest year on record. Last year was the snowiest.
Last year: 97.3"
This year: 13.7"
So you can all shut the fuck up about lack of snow at your house. We have only gotten 1" chunks and they've all promptly melted. And they all happened last December.
