    The last, #10, is Mt. Snow...outdoor pool, indoor ice skating. Now the three story lodge is missing. But I'm presuming it's just the angle of the shot, perhaps from the lodge.

    Right on Mt Snow lodge, wrong on Dartmouth. Is the outdoor pool still there? I have another shot in B & W of the same pool and a similar pool in the family photos when my late brother and I were just  gleam in our dad's eye...

    That looks like the view from Stowe, perhaps Nosedive, before the gondola was built, with Spruce Peak on the right.

    Which one? ? The first one?--That is Stowe. Here's a shot of a famous skier when he was young at that race. image

    this happened to me a lot until i figured out that when you click into a thread, somehow it takes you to the last reply that you read, not the last reply in the thread

    Anywho, I'll guess sugarbush for the rock jump

    The rock jump is not Sugarbush.

    Not Sugarbush either. It is an open area and is in Southern VT.

    Oops... Missed that Rick already guessed that. Where does Southern VT start if u live in Newport? I don't btw, live in either. So continuing with WAGes Bromley.
    That white birch stand should help someone?
    And back to the famous skier ...you?
    Great form

    Famous skier is Billy Kidd-- I'm not that old!

    Southern VT I think is defined as anything below Route 4-- at least for NSP, Northern VT is anything north of 4 and Southern VT is below. So, NVT region is Middlebury, Sugarbush, MRG, Burke, Bolton, Cochran's, Jay and Smuggs. 

    I have a great Mike Hattrup poster which is too big for me to scan but the quote features Billy Kidd in it. 

    BTW-- I've been looking for a great poster from the 90's, featuring a B-1 Bomber on the runway wearing Scott Goggles. Even wrote Scott to see if they still had it-- no luck.
