  1. March or BUST! - Pattern & Model Discussion

    I have probably have another week riding from my house. We are going to go for a short ride tonight and get some dinner and will probably ride Saturday and Sunday. I'd love to go down south before the end of the season.

    Definitely lowered my overall grade. March has been nice though.
  3. Don’t forget the HOA fees. They can be high.

    I'm no JSpin or PF but I did take the afternoon off to go snowmobiling. We rode around the Central VT towns of Washington, Chelsea, Randolph, Brookfield and Williamstown. You could definitely tell what areas were stuck under the band that delivered the bigger totals but there was plenty of snow in general.

    You didn’t ask about VT but I’ll butt in anyway. Our season runs 12/16 to 4/15.Our trail system is about 5000 miles and is managed by 127 local clubs who belong to one over arching governing body, the Vermont Association of Snow Travelers or VAST. VAST collects trail pass money and distributes it to the local clubs through grooming contracts and grants for equipment, trail maintenance and construction and other things like signs or equipment repairs. VAST also acts as snowmobilings voice in the legislature and on statewide issues. VAST is a non profit entity and is in no way connected to or controlled by any state agency. I’m on the Board of Directors representing Washington County.

    Those E. MA guys are fine sprinters but PF, JSpin etc. are fine marathoners.

    A number of us have learned from the best, MPM and Tblizz. I myself meh’d my way to nearly 30” this past storm. The power of meh is real.

    No, that was DIT's grandfather with the mid century hype.

    I heard tell that some may have even started saying that March was no longer a winter month and that it should even be renamed to Morch.

    Apparently there is an NWS employ just over the hill from me and they reported 28.5” so I feel better about my measurement. I can’t figure out how to cut and past the pns reports on my phone and still retain the formatting. It’s there though!

    Well my town made the news for the snow. Maybe these hard hitting journalists could get to the bottom of Ray’s measuring controversy. http://www.wcax.com/content/news/Barre-Town-buried-in-latest-storm-476851773.html

    I guess I needed to give it some thought after all.
  13. March or BUST! - Pattern & Model Discussion

    We have only had one March opening, in 2012 and it was disastrous financially. We had to bring back staff a month early and we didn't generate the the extra revenue to make it worthwhile.

    We always set our opening date for April 15th but average opening April 23rd.
