Had a bunch more I wanted to upload...the file sizes are too large for some reason- something to do with how I manged them/downloaded them from Google Drive...Will figure it out and upload them soon!

I wish you all as happy an end of winter and beginning of spring as I can. These are dark days but I hope you are all finding brightness in your life. I wish you and yours all the best and look forward to continuing to share our love of skiing.
Hey my friend and fellow farmer! It seems like you are living in a different country!!! Thank's for sharing your pasion.
Although it is not the same all over Québec, here we have lost but all of our snow and there is not enough left to ski ;) This winter we were unlucky as we missed a couple of good dumps but at the same time that means we will start planting veggies in the field earlier this year. Although we might be going through dark days, us farmers must rely on bright sunny days to feed our people, you can count on us :mrgreen:

Gareth, thank you for sharing the photos. I wish I had your snowpack. I am glad I don’t have your mud season. In my corner of Michigan, mud season has been minor. My construction site has not been bad. I didn’t have a great winter for snow, however I did have trail skiing every weekend in February, plus some in November, January, and I think the first weekend in March. I really enjoyed the Gamme. I shouldn’t have taken the Gamme out the last time, but that’s what P-Tex sticks are for!

To both Gareth and Nitram, I wish you a successful growing season. Stay safe and healthy. Wish the both of you the best.

May all the guys here have a great spring. I’ve been catching enough fish to keep me happy. However they have been few enough and small enough to keep me from bragging. At least I’ve had some good time on the water, and some delicious meals. I’m a fortunate man.

Peace

Getting buried alive!!!!!!
Over 40cm of heavy wet snow down already and it is STILL coming down!!!!
Dreamy conditions for my E109 Crown Xtralite- fast smooth and wonderful turns!
Cross-country AND down-hill skiing in the backcountry.
Unashamed to be a "cross-country type" and love skiing down-hill.

Thanks for the update Canna.
What happened to Chuck Flannel? Are you guys under a serious lockdown? I have been essential, and worked right through. You can believe it was safe enough to work it was safe enough to play outdoors!
Someday in the next couple of years, I want to spring ski in New Hampshire. Until then I will Live Free.
