I am having skiing withdrawals

Anybody else have a limited ski season and having a hard time adjusting to not being able to hit the water? I skied the most I have in the past 15 years this season and can not wait for next year. I put together a video, because I can't ski, with Go Pro software of me and my ski buddies. Let me know who else needs a trip south for a few sets.

    I walked past the back sliding glass door this morning and felt the sun for the first time in a month. Geez, you can almost understand why ancient cultures used to worship the thing!!! I soon found myself sitting on the floor with my eyes closed trying to soak in the heat.

    Withdrawal should be eased this weekend. Local hill partially opens on Saturday for the other ski season.

    After having some of those tornados rip through my area - 1 mile from my house - I am really ready for ski season to return.

    The new snows skis on their way to me right now will help a little bit. But just a little bit.

    After reading these posts, I am almost feeling guilty for whining that I can't ski tomorrow because of rain. So glad I live in Arizona and will be skiing again on Wednesday after the rain is gone. Actually, a good chance I will find a chance to get in a set or 2 between rain drops this weekend.

    @DUSkier Oh, DU must be "Down Under Skier". Your season must be just getting started.

    I think I will have to pass on a set this weekend. I don’t think I could make it in time.
    In gear. Hit It. Thank You!

    I'm missing all my skiing and boating friends more than I'm missing skiing itself. Not that I'm not missing skiing because I am but my priorities have shifted slightly.

    I will say that me missing skiing is a bit wussy compared to the northern guys considering I quit skiing when the water and air were around 65 degrees. I'm willing to ski in a shorty but anything past that and my hands and feet freeze before I get out of the water on the first pass.
