With more resorts opening daily, and real snow on the horizon, what is everyones goal for days on the mountain this year? Of course everyone wants to ski 100+ days a year, but we know the realities of that! Reasonably, how many days will you shred?
I scheduled my classes next semester so I'm out by noon everyday on average. Planning on not getting much sleep but well worth the goal of 100 regular season days. 200 days may be achievable by bumming in the late spring and summer at the right places giving me 2 seasons in one year.

I don't stop believing.
I'm hoping to break 50 this year. Mt. Hood wasn't so great the previous season...

"So wait, do you want "how to fix this kinda properly" or "how to fix this using nothing except what SteezOnSkis12 has at his house, which we have to guess at" - if it's the latter, try melting some of your mom's dildos on the stove and filling the gap with that." - rozboon
Quit my job so I have all the time in the world to ski this winter haha.
I'm planning on 10 days before break if it ever fucking snows.
35 days during break
then 4-5 days a week during the semester(about 10-11 weeks before the hills close) so about 50 days.
So hopefully like 90-95 days :D

I was averaging 25 with basketball and winter track but I quit both of those and my hill is 20 minutes from my house. Also I get my license this year so I hope I can get 40 with Ohio's crappy weather and opening dates. Its a miracle if we get to 100 operating days lol.
Right around 25 hopefully. Weekend warrior status here usually up every weekend...1 week out west maybe 2. Occasional work on weekends or other weekend commitments I can't go up skiing for.
I'd be very happy breaking 30.

Got 9 days already between bootpacking and urban expeditions and i've got 4 day weekends for my whole second semester at college. Hoping to get out for around 70-80 days should for sure be able to beat last year's record of 53 at least
working a metric fuckload this winter but will still have a day or two to go shred as well as a few mornings to go make some turns. not all bad, obviously you want to bum it up and ski everyday till you grow bored of it, but im broke and not as fortunate as some people I know are.

We'll see. Im already pissed that Thanksgiving is next week and the only time I can knowingly afford to sneak in a quick 5-6 day trip out west. Holidays and family pressure/obligations look set to mess up my early season in addition to shit east coast snow. Tuesday+Wednesday will be nice to get on snow up in VT however. But I should be skiing out west not driving back to wake up and fly to Delaware out of emotional pressure because its a holiday.
Realistically speaking I will probably get in around 10-20 days from the local hill. then another 10- from trips to other better hills in the state on the weekend.
Then im going to France for 10 days on Christmas. I might go somewhere for Easter. And depending on the snow pack ill be going to the local woods after school every day/skinning in pa every 4 weekend.
Whatever the number may be its still not going to be enough since I live in the fucking mid atlantic
This whole time i thought bae meant Bacon and Eggs...
