  • Hey how did you resurrect that? Fantastic! Brings back memories of your high volume obscure area report days! Hey I see another country on the other side of that "oxbow?" river. Love this pic I see that's report #20 got any similar? In particular…
  • Nice day at Killington today soft snow more open than expected but the summit trails are done now just Superstar quad from here on out. Me too!  Surprised I didn't see you.  IMO, the upper mountain would be good for at least another week, but closin…
  • Did anyone ski more than half the year?(183 days) I think my best volume year was three yrs ago when I skied Nov'13 -Apr'14 with a 120" year here, even then maybe a bakers dozen. I wish the little local hill(half hour away,Cannonsburg) had a compa…
  • Did you ski it? Ski_it Boy that Garbobstinkle trail looks naaasrrrow Yea just a t and j bar, 500' vert and I'm sure some volley voofrance Well how many moose did you see driving up SS fellow correspondent bum But of course I have skied it. See m…
  • QC on Snocountry is showing only the following 3 open in QC as opposed to the 9 suggested by MadPat.Val d’Irène – April 23 (Friday-Sunday only)Ste-Anne – April 30 (weekend only)St-Sauveur – May 14 (weekend only) That being said, I don't expect many …
  • The co-op ownership (differentiated from "club ownership"), as far as I know, is unique.  I guess, depending on definitions, one could argue it either way. I guess that's true.....if you use the Bill Clinton approach that even the most basic word…
  • When MRG says "skier owned mountain", they don't mean one or even 100 skiers. I'm not disputing that MRG is skier owned. I'm disputing their claim that that they are "America's ONLY skier owned mountain". Do you think their statement is accurate? …
  • I think Mt. Snow does an incredible job of covering Long John early in the season.  While I don't know what the crowds might be like on a weekend, it seems as though the combination of Long John + Little John +  the Sun Brook Area should be adequate…

  • Black Mtn. of ME?
  • Suggestions so far:... So getting back to the original premise of this thread.  Mad River Glenn claims to be "America's ONLY skier-owned mountain".  The list above shows at least three dozen areas that prove MRG's claim to be false.  When MRG says …
  • Wow! Those numbers are painful. I'm going to have to cover my eyes when JS posts. Actually, nelsbeer is pretty close - possibly even ahead of me. Who else among the SJers is in the 100+ club? If you're interested, I'll post my final numbers in June.
  • That's interesting spk27 I don't think I've done any spring skiing at Cannon. Perhaps I should. Killington, Jay, Killington, Wildcat, Bretton, Wildcat, repeat ...come to mind. Cannon is great in the spring as their inherently icy snow begins to soft…
  • It originated with a poem The Road Not Taken and through the years has been misread and twisted to an entirely different meaning than the author intended.   Robert Frost poem, but became the ultimate guide to recover from a break-up or divorce in a …
  • Somebody shutdown the cam so now we can't see what's left to earn turns on. Oh well. As of yesterday, you would be hard pressed to find more than 300 continuous vertical feet without "some walking required". The quantity of snow that melted between …
  • I anticipate between 5 and 10 more days at Killington before they shut down.  That should get my cost down to about $15 per day on my Spring-fling pass!
  • Based on what I've seen I give them easily a minimum 2 weeks left, a month or more if the scorchers hold off. I recall the last year ASC operated Killington, there was an average depth of 30' the first weekend in May.  Over the next two weeks, the d…
  • Hi Joshua,I was not at Killington, but on the way to NH on Friday, I saw a guy with a Killington ticket at the Rutland Panera. He looked like he could be you, from how I remember your picture in the magazine article you were mentioned in. I almost i…
  • Hey Joshua,Did you happen to stop for a bite to eat at the Rutland Panera, after skiing Friday? No.  I go east to go home.  I take it you were at killington on Friday also?
  • I wonder if they will have to plow snow come August/September to maintain snow-cover continuity?
  • Apr. 16, 2017 - Sun. Pretty scary how much snow was lost since Friday.  Satellite Summit may still be continuous from the top.  Neither Moon Walk nor Lower Blastoff (aka, Upper Pluto's) was.  I quit climbing when I ran out of snow on Lower Blastoff.…
  • I know that this thread had nothing to do with Hunter Mtn., but to the extent that it has morphed into a Hunter skiing thread:1. The original owners of Hunter Mtn. was the Hunter Mtn. Dev. Corp.2. They hired the Slutzky Brothers construction company…
  • April 13, 2017 - Thurs. After being out of ski country from Mar. 31 to Apr. 12, I returned going to Killington  today. Non-skiing related:Almost everything in the clothing department is on sale at 50% off.  I figured if they charge $4 for a cookie, …
  • This weekend update on who's spinning and closing dates floating around. Still 98 ski areas in the East still hoping to spin this weekend: Québec : 48Vermont : 13New Hampshire : 9New York : 6Maine : 5 Ontario, Newfoundland & Labrador, New Brunsw…
  • Attitash closed 4/9/2017 I suspect this is a Peak Resorts business decision that is as logical for them as POWDR's closing of Pico.
  • I was a great closing day.  Great coverage, even poached Jupiters a few times.  I felt bad for the mountain that the crowd was so light, makes it hard to get them to do it next year.    Being in FL, my only contact with the hill this weekend, was an…
  • ... To ski_it: Where is the above photo from?  Looks like a quad so it can't be Tenney, Mittersil or Mad River Glen.
  • I don't understand the exclusion of Mittersill. It has quite a bit of properties that you can click in at and ski right to the lift. Really?  My recollection is thqt the only lodging is the old Mittersill Inn  which was (and probably still is) a tim…
  • Live from Crotched. Super spring ... ... Joshua I skied several twice just for you. I'm sure I enjoyed them. Still in FL but my ski season is not over!
  • Thanks jgreco. I thought Sunapee was leased from the State of NH.  I also thought CNL was a land holding company as opposed to a management company.  How does Sunapee fit into that list (or is CNL also a management company)?
