  • I like the quote from the Suicide Six coach: "Now this is a real ski area. Not a condo in sight." I need to get back to the skibowl. I was there one time many years ago.
  • Gotta love the cathedral style chairs!
  • The Mueller's are probably skiing's "golden child" if you think about it. They started by buying Okemo in what? The early 80's for probably a steal. They expanded both the skiing and, of course, the real estate foot print. They expanded and purch…
  • What has been the trend for prices (Day tickets, Passes, etc) at the resorts that Vail has purchased? Speaking as a Vermonter, and looking at what had happened and Stowe for an example, the prices will go up and deals and discounts for locals will…
  • That is a crazy story. The guy does seem traumatized...not back to work yet, etc.
  • A superb video of what the last day of the season at Killington looks like. Agreed. And, all of the tele love in the video is just great too!!

  • I had so much fun yesterday and really enjoyed my last day of the season. Joshua, it was fun to see and ski with you again. Riv, I spotted you from the lift at one point, but never got to say hello. Josh and Riv pretty much summed up the day. Th…

  • Final day is Saturday. Per K report. Just read that. Who's going to be there this weekend? I'm hoping to be there Friday for my final turns of the season.
  • I met Scott this past weekend at Killington. He is quite impressive.  As is our resident vertical champ, Joshua. They make me really wish for good health lasting into retirement.  . 
  • IMHO, the problem will always go back to the fact that the skiing at Haystack is just subpar, no matter who owns it.
  • I had so much fun at K-mart yesterday. I kind of agree with Joshua...the "masses" that ski at K-mart in late May are generally advanced skiers. I had so much fun skiing Killington yesterday. I love that place especially for early and late season.
  • Scott H. is the a friend of mine who came to Crotched and took 143 runs on the Rocket and logged 131K vertical in one day.  That was his biggest vertical day of the season. Scott H. is #1 at 6576.4K. Joe O. is #24 at 2433.6 K. Dylan P. is #11 at…
  • They groomed out some of the glacier and covered about 1/3 of the headwall this morning.  I'm sure it will get skied out and rocky by late morning...but that is usually the case the last 2 weekends of May.
  • Joshua, will you skiing this weekend? Just Friday. Good. I plan on being there Friday myself. I'll keep an eye out for you. I usually see you there this time of year!
  • Joshua, will you skiing this weekend?
  • My bro live in NJ but skis in NH in Jan Hmm.. I noticed you gracefully side stepped the question A dark sider, huh? Nice picture of planting the flag at the 3999 foot mark. What question?Yea I guess I'm nuts You are not the one who drives cl…
  • What's up with the Superstar cam its been out now for a few days.  You can still get a good glimpse of Supe from the Golf Course Cam. But it is not as good as the regular Superstar Cam.
  • IMHO, Berkshire East skis bigger than Catamount regardless of vertical drop. Skizilla, Catamount has a very affordable season pass, I'm sure it is appealing for someone near Springfield. Also, isn't Berkshire East really the southern extension o…
  • I posted this over on the NYskiblog.  I thought it would be relevant here as well.  I grew up skiing at the original BEast (Berkshire East) and remember when Roy Schaefer first came to the mountain in the early-mid 70's.  I think his (and now hi…
  • 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. 
  • That being said, the odds that SB will ever operate again as a commercial ski area are very slim (IMO). Let's hope you're wrong, Joshua.  One thing to keep in mind is that the Berrys also own a condo or house or something like that at Saddleback…
  • I've tipped the guy who cleans restrooms if I have a $5 handy (and the restroom seems reasonably clean).  It's a job that needs to be done and one that I certainly would not want to do! (or should I say "do, do"?) I do know others who tip an espec…
  • Years ago, after I got my girls skiing myself, I figured it was a good idea to get them some "real" lessons since once they started getting a bit older, they started not listening so much to Dad.  I always tipped the instructors.  Now, both of my …
  • So now a new company is being duped by Barnes?  When will this crazy sh&*show end? Pretty sure the new company is composed of various members of their finance board, and that it will come out that Jim Barnes is no longer associated with any …
