Early Season Skiing/Riding?

I am sitting here debating whether to bust out the dusty skins and go poke around on Monarch Pass but I am in my early season lack of motivation for skiing mode. Eventhough it is windy and cold I feel like riding my bike...so what do you all think? Go skiing or wait for base...

this little debate is coming to a close as it appears to be puking up in the hills. I am approaching the tipping point very rapidly.

Ride the bike. My old buddy Keith was skiing early season in the backcountry many years ago. Just couln't wait for more snow to make it a bit safer. Anyway, he fell face first and his thigh landed hard on a rock that wasn't very far under the surface. Shattered his upper leg and just about died before Summit SAR got to the scene. The crew he was skiing with did everything right and saved his life. Took many hours before they got him out after dark. Had it not been for a patroller in the crew, he would have croaked for sure.

Aw fook it... go skiing anyway but watch out for bad things under the surface.
