For the most part, yes...
Except my hiking season is November through April. I prefer to hike in my local backcountry and the summer is too hot and dry out there. I like the winter much better... no people, no snakes, few bugs, more water.
That being said, I usually sneak out "early" with a couple of late summer or early fall trips (mid-September to mid-November) to the Sierra to kick off my hiking season.
