  • I was JUST there this past weekend.  The hotel is still operating, but the ski trails are long, long, gone.  Not sure what I think about the long-term business ambitions discussed in the article.  How about some skiing instead????
  • Snowmaking, snowmaking and more snowmaking.  Wise!
  • ~O) He should have just bolted out of there...
  • My knee if f'd and will be getting surgery soon.  A sure sign this winter will be a record setting. sorry to hear, hope you're on the mend quickly Thanks.  I don't think it will be the disaster I had on my hands last time and missed the famous wint…

  • I don't have the data to support it but it seems to be one of the cooler Augusts in recent memory.  No?
  • Joan Schwartz, a Sutton resident who has skied frequently at the resort, said residents were not only uncomfortable with the bribery allegations but with the fact the company was a hedge fund which has an “obvious interest for making money.” “The c…
  • Berkshire East is cutting a new novice trail east of the Mohawk trail: http://www.newenglandskiindustry.com/viewstory.php?storyid=592  Really looking forward to that one.  I expect this will also serve as a maintenance road for the new area.
  • Anyone know, or care to share, which software package is hosting SJ 2.0?
  • A Portland radio station is saying, the feds have committed $530k to improve the Rangeley airport. I have no idea if it is a year round airport but this is nice for the area. Qantas A380's will be landing there  ;))
  • NELSBEER your Chondola suggestion from the village is spot on.  A large parking lot there with a lift ticket shack would be king.
  • Some new trails and glades!  Good to hear no lift/building damage
  • I might be reading too much into this but that email from Majella made specific note of "Timberland" when they could have easily said acreage or land or whatever. Can the timberland they refer to actually be harvested? I hope this works. I've never…
  • A strategy of riding the coattails of Sugarloaf may be what they are hoping.  Let's face it, the Loaf is pure awesomeness, at least for a couple days. A quick drive down to Saddleback mixes up the experience nicely.  There are resorts that operate s…
  • Sad to see the Pasture J-Bar at Waterville is on the hit list.  I think there is only one other operating New England J-Bar, right?
  • Smells bad, however, the failure of notification may not have been intentional and rather a gross oversight.  This article is well written.
  • The fact that there are multiple parties interested is a positive sign, but the question remains, is skiing the #1 priority for these potential buyers?   If so, what sort of business plan will bring in people?   On a side note, I have always dreamed…
  • Great little area i agree hope it stays open.  It is kind of a pain to get to and lack of reliable snow hurts.  What would be great is if the state opened an exit at the mcdonalds on the pike there.  The ski area literally backs up to that mcdonalds…
  • I was there on June 1 of 94.  :D
  • I see the validity of them going light on capacity for Spruce, though, stretching it to the base area and putting in an HSQ would be super valuable since everything off Aurora is at your disposal from the top.  It would flush out the morning crowds …
  • I hiked Carrauntoohil in early April of 2005 and the summit cone had a nice field of deep (12-24") sleet.  I was thinking that in winter, there may have been more beefy cover.
  • Hopefully Tenney will see some of their money back as criminally acquired assets are sold off, which I assume will happen.
  • The hump look higher this year compared to last year. 
  • Nice!  Thanks.  Just inspired me to make the trip up.  Just need a cool sunny day!
  • As a kid I used to ride in the Imp at Snow Hill with my grandfather.  As a teen I was standing at the bottom of Loon one night with a friend watching the groomer and the operator offered us a ride.  Tucker Mountain snow cat at Copper in 2013 counts …
  • Neat parking lot pic, I can where the parking may be an issue, have shuttle bus? https://viewer.hangar.com/nA0VqlrV Which one is that?  The parking/walking situation there is definitely a quite a production.  I always have believed running a trail…
  • Nice.  Love that trail under the double.  Skied it with my son back a few weeks ago.  Lot's of character.   This is certainly a spring for the history books.
  • I skied Wachusett on the 9th,  It was very nice, empty, and surprising how many of the "between" trails that were open.  I actually skied through a small wooded section between Conifer and Balance Rock and it couldn't have been nicer.  No question t…
