i got the discount pass to 3 sister resorts in PA for skiing/boarding. they didn't open til around new year's which sucks because they all normally have early season prices in early and mid December which are great deals.
otherwise i'd be the same way. "this is great, i don't mind a mild winter" etc but i want snow on the mountains for me to ski and board when i want.

since I am not a skier (I live in Western NY) I am quite happy with the mild winter. I can understand those who like the outdoor winter activities (skiing/boarding, snowmobiling, etc) being disappointed

I am everyone else is happy about the mild winter. My son is 2 now and all I've wanted to do was build a snowman with him, and we have haven't had enough to do that. :-( There are other things to do in the snow besides drive...

I live in NH, don't ski, but I am disappointed. It just doesn't feel like winter without snow. I don't like hot/sticky summers, and look forward to the chilly weather. It seems like the snowiest day we had in my area was a freak Halloween snowfall.

I'm in DC, and I miss snow. As someone whose arthritis kicks up (as it were) in cold weather, I know there are advantages to mild weather. This year is a bit much, though: springtime allergies have become a problem because plants are as confused as we are.

There is, however, the possibility of a real snowstorm here on Sunday. I'm not holding my breath.

@mtrlgrl: Boston-area chiming in. Yep, we got a couple of inches for Halloween. This is a total bummer. I keep hoping that some big blizzard is still on the way - I could use a two-day snowstorm to stay home, bake cookies, enjoy some quality family time. We had about 6" two weeks ago and the kids spent an entire day making the most awesome snowforts. They even shoveled out the neighbor's driveway to get more snow for their snowforts. Those had potential for fun for weeks, but they only lasted a day because it warmed right up. At least they can use the scooters they got for Christmas...

edit: just looked this up: "Take out the October storm, and we're just under 7" for the season in Boston. Normal for the entire season is a little north of 45"."

YES! It's very depressing that we haven't had a winter this year. I know some people in NYC were fed up with all the snow last year, but WTF, then move to where they don't have snow. Oh, right, I forgot, that is NYC these days.

If we're lucky, we'll have very cold weather and snow through April.... That would make me VERY happy.

Yes, I know I'm weird, but cold weather is so refreshing and energizing.

@mtrlgrl: Same here! We were going to take my daughter to Boo at the Zoo and woke up to 4 inches. I can't win

@caron7: Remember the 1993 Storm of the Century. It happened over March 12th-13th, so there's still hope.

@caron7: I grew up in the Boston area and it seemed as a kid we had plenty of snowstorms every year, and lots of fun. We spent the entire day outside playing in the snow, only came in to warm up with hot chocolate once in awhile. I do feel bad for the kids with no snow and parents trying to come up with things to do. I also remember the Blizzard of '78. Now THAT was snow!

@jimmyd103 I bet your daughter was thrilled with the snow though.
