It depends..... Is there enough snow on the ground to go skiing in the BC? If so they have a valid excuse. If there is now enough to go skiing anywhere then YES. They are all the above. Steve Z

Dan L. and I got a 10/15/06 run down Gore. Sunny, 60s and gorgeous. We saw a lot of fishermen/women, but not a single other boater. So I doubt you'll get anyone to boat if there is even a cloud at this point.

that's funny I got that call yesterday to go hit bailey and I really did have a ballet lesson.

Actually I went up to berthoud to find out 10" is not enough to ski on. Hopefully this next storm will produce and make it all good up there.

You forgot to add "Not as desperate as me to bash my ass on rocks b/c there is no water" in the poll.

Any other transplanted northwesterners out there? Since boating season is rainy season, which is winter, kayaks and skis would both be on the tops of cars as you pull out of town, sometimes both on the same car. Seattleites can sleep in, paddle the Snoqualmie during the afternoon, then head up to the pass for a little night skiing.

Not boating to ski is understandable. However, perhaps I should clarify that what they wanted to do instead of paddling was either lying around or doing homework. Can you say LAME?

Tubers, that's true about the city shutting down, but that's more because there are fewer sand trucks than there being worse drivers than here in Denver. I'll defer to the mountain towns here...

I stand by rainy/boating season being in the winter though. I learned with snow on the ground, and I damn near fell out of my boat the first time I tried to roll without my drysuit holding my hips in. (Ahhh, that's why I was supposed to re-do the outfitting for the summer...)
