  • I rode Stowe last Friday and Sugarbush last Sunday. Stowe was absoutely amazing. All terrain was spectacular, except for areas that snow was pushed due to the wind. The underlying ice base was exposed, but you had to look for it to find it. It was s…
  • Thursday is a much better bet, as it will be warmer (still not above freezing). The clear conditions will also help to loosen up the snow from the sun's ray.
  • Unreal photos, can't wait to ride Stowe tomorrow.
  • Stowe has 50" in the past 3 days.
  • There is 26" here in Burlington and still dumping. Not safe to drive very far today.
  • This is the most wind blown snow I have ever seen from Burlington, VT. There are drifts over 4-5 feet here. I can only assume the woods tomorrow will absolutely amazing.
  • Looks like the Green Mountains and other Northern New England higher summits are in the bull's eye of the storm. Seems like there may be no more snowmaking this season if the 2-3 feet deliver. Killington has already announced that after the storm, …
  • As my boss used to say: "The big gun is on now".... tomorrow and Thursday will be tremendous, and later today as well, if you can get to the hills I'm in the office in Burlington, VT now and it's not looking like traveling on the highway is a good i…

  • Cool news. I never rode the Village, maybe it's time. Sunny D can certainly use an updating, but is usually strictly for park riders. There are quite a few adaptive programs and young ski schools going up there. I would rather see that money go into…
  • On another note Squaw Valley is reporting 139" at the base and 254" on the summit. X_X The last thing I want to hear, especially when the snowfall forecast for Northern Vermont was just downgraded.
  • How much was a Woodbury season pass for this season?
  • So Stowe goes from a season's pass that is upwards of $1500 (I think) to one that is a little more than half that? A crowded place on weekends and holidays just got  more so. It must work for Vail Yes! I had a long conversion with someone about the …
  • Can someone please explain: Epic Pass: Do you pay $800+/- and get unlimited skiing at your home area and at all areas on pass, or are the "away" areas limited or come with discounts? Or do you buy home area pass and also Epic Pass? MCoop: You buy on…
  • ... I dunno what Killington feels about all of this. Ideally, I'd love to see a NE collective of the Mt Snow, Stratton, Okemo, Sugarbush, Jay, Wildcat and Loon with perhaps Lake Placid as well forming some kind of bloc. Mt. Snow is Peak Resorts tha…

  • You would think they could hook up a mobile fan gun at the summit, pile it up and push it down to the top of Upper Cascade. I don't think they would want to run the compressors with the lifts running at the same time. It seems that the kW charge for…
  • From Win today... I am really pleased to announce that Sugarbush has become part of theMountain Collective. This was created a few years ago by Aspen to respondto Vail's Epic Pass. The members now included 16 of the best owneroperated ski areas not…
  • Found this odd piece about a Grill on the Hill in Norwich: http://wikimapia.org/6981391/Grill-On-The-Hill
  • I did not ride today at Mount Snow, but rode yesterday under the guns. They ran on trails Nitro, Ridge, Canyon, Cascade, and Snowdance. The winds were high and temperatures danced around 0, which had the Canyon Express closed and Sunbrook was closed…
  • Mount Snow's blowing at the moment. Looking at their webcams it's a little sad to see the grey on the snow, frozen patches on top of the boiler plate snow. With the temps the next 48+ hrs, anywhere they're making snow will be back in GOOD shape pre…
  • Here's an excerpt from the current Killington snow report: "With Wednesday's warm weather in the rear view mirror, Killington snowmakers are excited for a weekend of frosty temperatures. In order to take maximum advantage of the cold forecast, Mount…

  • That's a horror story. Thankfully he was able to crawl those 500 yards and not catch a snag on anything.

  • I can understand Dr Jeff about the course.  From inside my comfy bubble, I spied you dedicated souls continuing to work hard late in the day. If you see an old guy in the Tap Room with an ISNE shirt on, feel free to say hi."When did Mount Snow clo…
  • I don't want to be negative as Mt Snow did a fantastic job Sunday considering the cards they were dealt last week. Now this midweek doesn't look too positive either. You may need to change your skiing approach there because last Sunday not all trail…
  • I'll be up at Mount Snow on Saturday and its forecasted to be the coldest day of this stretch of cold weather. I think they will put down a fair amount of snow on the fan gun runs. I'll be there Friday through Sunday. Looking forward to seeing the f…
  • How many of these places do you think are actually trying to lay down extra base and improve conditions versus a marketing ploy to get more revenue this weekend and next, etc?
  • One thing to mention is that Bolton is owned by Redstone Vermont, which is a for profit real estate management group. Not sure if that would kick it out of this list or not.
