This is pretty much where I'm at. I think I've had 2 days of playing in the last 2 months. We'll get an occasional nice day when the snow's gone, but that's it.

Lots of gym time.

I played the last three days just to get outside a bit. It is exhausting trekking through calf-to-knee high snow. It's a good work out but bad for the frolf game. Glad I forced myself out there though, because last night's forecast of "1 to 3 inches" turned out to be another 7". So I probably won't play for at least another week, because knee-to-thigh high snow drifts is where I draw the line.

This is getting ludicrous.

I draw the line at playing right after a fresh snowfall of any more than 2 or 3 inches. Way too easy to lose discs in the snow, I don't play with ribbons (I already have enough of a noodle arm, I don't need external forces causing more distance drag on top of that) and spending 10-15 minutes kicking around a bunch of snow looking for my disc every time I lose one just isn't fun.

Give it a few days though, and it gets much more playable - braver souls than I will track down the snow in many parts of fairways, and if you get a day or two of sun, it kind of ices over the surface of the snow and melts a bit of it to the point where it gets less likely for a disc to dive through, and a clearer impact mark where it does. That, plus walked down snow is just less of a pain in the rear to navigate on foot.

Eventually though, enough overall snow accumulation (12"-18" or more is about my limit), even that which is semi-icy on the surface, just gets to be too much, and trudging through it, & trying to dig around for discs that do dive through, gets to be more trouble than it's worth.

This is the winter that shows no signs of ending.

First time playing in snow, while snowing, 28F degrees. Very light snow. Very poor footing. Played 9 and that was plenty.
