Anyone Else Still Not Started

I can't believe it is almost mid May and I still haven't gotten wet. I am generally a serious skier, 5-6 days/wk and hitting most of our local tourneys. I dream about it all the time. Lurk here lots. Study the game. Yet I still haven't gone this year. This is sad........ really sad!

I used to think that ski tuning might be more complicated than Rocket Science.........
Now I know it is..

    First ski was 1 set I got in last saturday, then we had rain and or wind. Hope tommorow is better. 1st set was with an additional 80 hp in my 95 Response, that was nice. Z box installed today waiting to try that.

    @Dal Where are you in Oz? I ski all year round on the NSW south coast. Get a dry suit, no need to stop then!

    I finally got some turns in on April 20th. It has snowed a few times since then (yesterday), but I've been lucky enough to get out at least three times a week.

    @Ryno, Sunny Melbourne mate.
    You have a point, but you still need 3 to Tango and getting takers is a tall order when it's miserable outside. I know some of the guys here will be skiing in lower temps than I ever have to endure, Chopping up the ice for a run etc....................maybe i'm just a princess :)

    Depends on how you define "not started." I have skied a bunch in the south, a couple sets out west, and about 10 open water sets at home, but my boat is still hanging in the boathouse and we are a good two weeks away from having a slalom course. Ironically, the ice went out five weeks ago and I have already moved into the lake house for the summer.

    Our ice just went out this week followed by 45 mph winds thru Friday. Put the course out and skied for the first time yesterday. Still a little bit windy. Water temp was 40 degrees air balmy 46 degrees.
