I think I said that if I lived in ME, BMOM might well be my home area. I had a great time the one day I was there 3-years ago when visiting a friend in Portland.

  • That's a long road to plow for just condos. Must be $$$$$. I guess it's about 3 miles or so from the end of state roads. Private Road starts at the ski area parking lot as far as I know.
  • My guess is that any "new installation" is not going to run air-pipes up the hill: a big savings on infrastructure cost, but areas with such systems, do not seem to be in a hurry to get rid of them.
  • It was not their goal to still be doing any of it. It never is - but it is very common.
  • The access to many of the condos goes through the main parking lot. My understanding is that the plowing is paid for through condo fees - NOT by any largesse of the current owners.
  • I wonder how much the popularization of helmets has led to more people skiing the trees. IMO - unrelated Not having her head lacerated by low hanging branches is what helped get my wife into the trees. I hear you, but my experience with Gl…
  • Am I the only who wishes they'd finish these construction projects before October and not during meteorological winter? I know I wouldn't want my house built then. I am in agreement with you! This has been going on since I've been skiing. It's…
  • Dec. 11, 2018 - Tues. Pretty much the same as yesterday - but the new 6-pack was acting up again. I was getting a bit irritated as I sat on the stopped lift for over 1/2 hour. Pleasant surprise at the top: 2 courtesy patrol members were handing o…
  • Not knowing anything about anything, why would that make them quit? Volunteer Patrolmen are unpaid. NSP charges dues. How big a liability are people willing to incur to be a volunteer?
  • Dec. 10, 2018 - Mon. Killington was spectacular today and will likely be similar tomorrow. I avoided Bear because of the massive snowmaking operation going on there - and I'm sick of skiing through snow guns when I have other choices. I got a goo…
  • I noticed lots of telephone poles by trails, but the only ones that I saw with skiable space on both side of the pole was on Needles Eye, skier's right of the Skyeship.
  • The oldest first timer I ever taught was in his 60s. He took three lessons. Asked me what equipment he should buy; came back the next week with his own equipment and marveled, "How did I live my life without this?"
  • Don't know if these are telephone or just electric poles Crystal Michigan I think those are called high tension wires.
  • Burke: Upper and Lower Powerline Killington: Powerline First summary: VT Burke: Upper and Lower Powerline Mad River Glen: Suggested there are some under double. Can someone add the trail name? Mt. Snow: Little John between the summit and the t…

  • I suspect we're going to see a slow down in new on map glades at this point. Though some areas will still continue to debate whether or not to put off map glades onto the map. But I really don't see many areas investing in new glade cutting at this …

  • So how was it today??? It was exceptional for opening day with more than half the mountain open. I would say it was the best opening day in my 12-year tenure at CM. The crowd was typical of a mid-season weekend day: Small line on the Rocket - per…
  • Dec. 7, 2018 - Fri. The skiing was pretty much the same as I reported for Dec. 5. I did ski pretty much the entire day with NELSAP which made for continuous great conversation. And I got my autographed copy of his new book. Aside to cisco: Jeremy…
  • Yes it does it’s buried. That's true, but I thought the "power line" notation implied telephone poles.
  • Thanks for the information, but right now I can ski unassisted. The larger obstacle is walking from my car to the slopes. The handicapped parking spots are within inches of the main lodge or if you don't have a handicapped parking plate (or sign)…
  • The power line trail at Killington in the “Glades” area and the power line trail at Burke. Power Line at Killington no longer has power lines! I'm pretty sure there is a power line at Stowe that is skied, but I can't remember its name.
  • I'm sure ski_it would give you permission to post pics of the north face, moguls and early season snow , lol ( I am persistent in requesting pics as you can tell) Don't worry. I'm persistent too!
  • I know I know But can I get a "free " ski lesson from the former instructor headlined in Ski magazine? I never took a lesson and want some pointers from the best Sure!
  • I just need something with handicapped parking and groomer. Depending on the weather and snow conditions, I may just meet up without skiing. We have CMARS (Crotched Mountain Adaptive Ride and Ski) if you are handicapped and there is handicapped p…
  • Ok JD, expect some pics. Teach JS a thing or 2 about pic posting. I know how to do it. I choose not to
  • Wow. Talk about a hijack! I suppose telephone polls might qualify as the remains of trees. Do we have a list of trails (or off-piste places that are routinely skied" that have power polls in them?
  • If ski_it gives me permission, I'll change the title of this thread to "Mt. Snow - 2018-9" Anticipating that it will be okay with him, I present the following: Dec. 5, 2018 - Weds. It was a pleasant day despite the fact that it was almost impossib…
  • I'll be there.
