  • Despite the obvious strong collection of Crotched Mtn. skiers on this forum, the absence of lift lines, even on weekends and holidays, is powerful evidence that most skiers are unaware of what Crotched has to offer. Both BMOM and Black Mtn. of NH a…
  • Once you say any city, the list grows rapidly. Just in NH: claremont: Arrowhead Conway: Cranmore Franklin: Veterans Memorial Plymouth: Tenney I suspect there are more in NH.
  • This makes me think of a new thread, Cities with most ski areas within 30 miles how about ski areas within National Forests instead? We need threads to keep the stoke going over the summer. By all means: start the threads! But if you do 3…
  • 2017-2018: Nov. 8 to May 25 134 days, 124 of them lift serviced: 106 CM: 96 lift serviced; 28 Killington:  A bit over 3.1 million vertical feet:according to the Trace-Snow app. I take my hat off to NES13. I never got close to 81 days in a season u…
  • Paterson, NJ (174): Campgaw Syracuse, NY (184): Cazenovia Ski Club Syracuse, NY (184): Skaneateles Ski Club Syracuse, NY (184): Song Mountain Syracuse, NY (184): a number of lost areas I show Syracuse to Labrador as just over 25 These are edited …
  • Finally Summary for 2017-8: I bumped it up one based on comments: 2010-1: Good snow Xmas, MLK and pres. week. No January thaw to speak of. 2012-3: While there was little snow in December and January, February and March were epic. The snow that did …
  • If ever a list represented snowjournal, this is it. It sure has generated a lot of traffic and controversy - but that's good. We need stuff like this to keep the stoke going!
  • Paterson, NJ (174): Campgaw Syracuse, NY (184): Cazenovia Ski Club Syracuse, NY (184): Skaneateles Ski Club Syracuse, NY (184): Song Mountain Syracuse, NY (184): a number of lost areas I show Syracuse to Labrador as just over 25 These are edited …
  • Sixth update: Ski Areas Within Major Cities (100K+ population) New York City, NY (1): Van Cortland Park (lost) Philadelphia, PA (6): Walnut Hill (lost) Colorado Springs, CO (42): Broadmoor Hotel (lost) Minneapolis, MN (46): Buck Hill Anchorage AK…
  • We might not want to do all of the lost areas within 25 miles of a city, because that would be a very, very long list, even just for Boston. Sam is right. Let's try it this way with lost areas. If it's the only one we can find with a city, we'll…
  • Sam and others: Most reasonable people are not going to search out such a route to find a sub-25 mile way to a ski area. My conclusions for the variety of places that we are arguing about is based on no tweaking. As I have suggested, you are free …
  • Oops. Just realized Wheeling doesn't fit the definition of 100k city per OP. The MSA (metro statistical area) of Wheeling is ~150k, but that opens another can of worms about cities. No can of worms. If someone want to open that thread, go fo…
  • Now that the season is officially over, and in light of this https://vtskiandride.com/the-2017-18-season/ Should this season move up at least one? Let's see if there are others who think so.
  • Why would you think down. Less snow but a much more consistent cold winter and great spring. We must not have experienced the same winter. March and April were great, but I didn't think that would pull in enough skier visits to offset January a…
  • We have still missed a few. I just tripped over: Buffalo, NY (81): Buffalo Ski Club Providence, RI (137) Diamond Hill (lost) Providence, RI (137) Ski Valley (lost) Springfield, MA (165): Mt. Tom (lost) Hartford, CT (222): Mt. Southington Hartford…
  • According to wikipedia, Wheeling's population is just under 30K.
  • Fifth update: New York City, NY (1): Van Cortland Park (lost) Philadelphia, PA (6): Walnut Hill (lost) Colorado Springs, CO (42): Broadmoor Hotel (lost) Minneapolis, MN (46): Buck Hill Anchorage AK (67): Alyeska Anchorage AK (67): Hilltop Ski Are…
  • Cannnball: I reentered Manchester, NH and Pats Peak in googlemaps. Mine says 25.2 for the route that you show as 24.9.
  • Hi gang: This is supposed to be fun. When it was apparent that the list of cities with ski areas was exceedingly small, I extended it to 25 miles - but you're right: I didn't explain the 25 miles well. Keep in mind, after someone's 25 miles came o…
  • Please define "city center". Are we going with the commercial, cultural, historical, political or geographical definition? For the purpose of this thread, "city center" is whatever googlemaps chooses when you name just a city as your starting poi…

  • I added the following to the 4th summary: Cleveland, OH (51): Boston Mills/Brandywine Worcester, MA (132), Mt. Wachusett. Lowell, MA (262): Gateway Hills Manchester, NH (263): Gateway Hills Philadephia, PA (231): Pine Hill, NJ (lost) Philadephia, …
  • I suggested these earlier. They got overlooked for the list: Manchester, NH (263): Pats Peak, Crotched, They were not overlooked. Both were in excess of 25 miles according to googlemaps.
  • Fourth update: New York City, NY (1): Van Cortland Park (lost) Philadelphia, PA (6): Walnut Hill (lost) Colorado Springs, CO (42): Broadmoor Hotel (lost) Minneapolis, MN (46): Buck Hill Anchorage AK (67): Alyeska Anchorage AK (67): Hilltop Ski Ar…

  • Because Saddleback has never been profitable.
  • Second update: Syracuse removed; Alyeska added. New York City, NY (1): Van Cortland Park (lost) Colorado Springs, CO (42): Broadmoor Hotel (lost) Minneapolis, MN (46): Buck Hill Pittsburgh, PA (65): Boyce Park Anchorage AK (67): Alyeska Anchorage A…
  • Like Eagle River, Girdwood and Glen Alps make up Anchorage? For now, I'm sticking with NES13's earlier posting. Perhaps the issue is population densities and as such, I see his county analogy as holding up. Many cities, as they grow, annex abutt…
  • Ski_it asks, "So similarly, you’d say the Bronx isn’t part of NYC then?" The Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Queens and Staten Island collectively make up NYC. It's like Roxbury, Southie, the North End, etc. collectively make up Boston.
  • Also, East Hill, AKA Camillus Ski Hill, is in Camillus, NY, a part of the Syracuse metropolitan area. Yeah - but Nashua is counted statistically with the greater Manchester metropolitan area and I suspect that Milton, MA (Blue Hills) is considered…
