  • Do we have a Stowe regular on SJ who can comment from personal experience how the Vail takeover has affected Stowe crowds and ops? Good question. I was wondering this myself I am not a Stowe local, but live in Burlington. I had an Epic pass for…
  • Any idea what the local's lift ticket cost was? Brattleboro Reformer 1/30/2012: "According to the purchase and sale agreement, Haystack can sell up to 250 lift tickets per day to Wilmington residents, Rubin said. Lift ticket prices for residents a…

  • Hard'Ack purchasing Stowe, that's a good one. I'm pretty sure the Stowe annual revenue is exponentially higher than the city of Saint Albans (owner of Hard'Ack).
  • Based on the webcam this morning, it looks like they have groomed the center of the trail near the top. It's hard to tell how far down the grooming goes. I know in year's past they strategically park cats along the trail to do quick grooms to reconn…
  • For sure. I was hitting rocks at the top of the headwall Saturday. The pile up top was maybe half of what they blew the past 3 seasons. I'll give an update uf I make it back Friday as planned. I got a nasty core shot at the end of May at the top …
  • I suspect that Carinthia has (had) better cover than the main mountain shown above.  Mt. Snow's low elevation have always knocked them out competition for the late season market. I did notice that Nitro's jump line was HUGE by the end of the year.…

  • My son and I drove back through Vermont on the way home from Whiteface and stopped to take a picture of the snow cover still remaining at Mount Snow: 5/5/2018: Looks like Canyon is doing very well still, at least from the top of Canyon Expre…
  • No love lost for me.  I haven't been on AZ for years.  To be honest, I thought it started to go downhill ever since Gregg sold it to Nick.  IMHO, there were just too many yahoos over there there that it started to detract from their good content.  …
  • I haven't been able to access for the past four/five days.
  • Wow, that's an impressive amount of snow for PA in May. Great photos, thanks for sharing.
  • Lower skier's left is rhe remnants from the May first slalom, and it was indeed a fun little line. Oh, thanks for sharing. It looks like it was also fun to build. 
  • Wow, looks great! I noticed on the webcam and in this photo that lower skier's left is a slalom course or something that looks man-made. I would like to jump into that.
  • Wow, they cut down a lot of trees. Yeah, it just looks like an angled field now. Kind of ugly.
  • Cochran's, Middlebury and Bolton this year but that was because it was an unplanned day of turns.  What's the cumulative price of 1 day at each place. Maybe a little over $100?
  • I haven't paid full price in almost half a decade. I only go to other resorts on deal days.
  • Just got an email from Two Roads brewing out of Connecticut that they will be having their Road Jam Festival at Gunstock in July. It's a Two Roads brewer's festival with live music, and includes some camping. 
  • No footrest=useless and frustrating to me with a board. Yeah I can do the back foot under the heel edge to hold it up but that blows. Just make a normal bar like was the case for the last 20 years. It's the real old chairs like Heavy Metal at Snow t…
  • For Glens Falls, NY, this April will likely end up as 2nd coldest since records were started in 1947 - just 0.2 degrees warmer than 1972. Projected monthly average will be 38.9, normal is 44.6. The average high will end up being 48.8 +/- 0.1 degree…
  • I rode Sugarbush today. Rain up until Heaven's Gate and falling a good clip at the summit. It was a blessing to be riding in non-Rain. I checked the higher summits forecast for Mansfield, they should be getting 9+ tonight.
  • They make the best fan guns on the market along with Techno Alpin in my opinion. I never have seen Demac, but pictures. All the Lencos I've worked with were complicated and expensive, so I was never a lover of them. I do agree about Techno fans. …
  • Yes, Blittersdorf has been discussing this for a very long time. It is quite the trip to get around to the NLG building. He ventured into the transportation world after renewables (He founded a wind power company and now owns a solar PV company). Hi…
  • I am a huge SMI Polecat fan!
  • I'm surprised I have never heard DemacLenko.
  • The only time I don't like to use the safety bar is on chairs with tightly packed footrests.  On a snowboard some footrests don't allow enough room to get your board up and on to the footrest.  As result the footrest is pushing down on you the whole…
  • A gondy usually runs at half the normal capacity. So an 8-pax gondy runs in the ballpark of 2400 pph. The 8 pack is just a marketing ploy like Boyne's six pack was. A 6 pack can easily serve the same as the proposed capacity in the article. That…
  • There are several new areas that have opened up as well due to mud slides-- one visible best from the top of North Lynx between there and Mt Ellen. Best access is from MEllen though-- about a fifteen minute trip in. From what I hear, the base of it …
  • If you had told me at the end of February that we'd still be skiing Castlerock on April 22nd without walking, I'd have said you were nuts. It was fun, but sadly an outlier.  I think the places that can guarantee the late-season skiing (Killington)…
