Couldn't agree more.

We got snow in Oregon yesterday. Kinda early for us and I am sure it will go away before it comes back but it is a good sign.

I would rather see the peaks stay bare until mid December. If you love lapping the lifts then I guess your concern for snow in late September could be semi valid..... but for those of us who like to skin for a portion of our vertical each winter early snow = depth hoar = avalanche danger. The best winter I've had in the backcountry was 2008 when it didn't start snowing until mid/late December, then we got like 70" of wet heavy snow in 5 days. Best, safest base I've seen in Colorado in my whole life. Courtesy a December Pineapple Express.

I was still living in the Sierra foothills in 2008 but came out to visit a friend for a long weekend. We spent two days lapping Marble bowl. I thought it was just a regular sort of outing, but I haven't been back since.

I'd like to see snow. I'm not going to be getting any back country turns this year. I'm skiing with a 3 yr old. More time on the snow the better for us. Besides there is no water in the river, and I don't like the donkos. What's there to do other than catch up on all the projects I put off this summer. Now my wife calls skiing with my daughter parenting so it cant have any selfish motivations. Last spring she did great at a basin, can't wait to ski with her now that's she is 6 months older. So come on snow! I don't care about you earning your turns. I'm gonna have fun with my daughter!!!!(a bit selfish I guess)
