  • I'm wondering if some day down the line they are thinking of getting rid of the mid mountain lodge or at least the parking there in the future. (could keep lodge as mid mountain restaurant)  Gondola could indeed be more of a transfer lift but also a…
  • More The Outpost Double at Pico Valley House at Sugarbush North Ridge At Killington Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • So long High Country double. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • This is a great thread Chair at Seaside Heights (Pre Sandy) Double -Quad set up at Elk Mt PA.  Old No. 5 Chairlift at Loveland Basin (not run anymore) New Sun Bowl Quad at Mt Sunapee East Basin Double at Loon Mt. Got plenty more to post …
  • Berthoud Pass was cool! Still is just sans lift.  My son and his friends hang out (climb and ski) up there quite a bit.   About Lutsen, Hail to the original Loon Gondola now gone forever I believe. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Ok I'm going to stir the pot.   I know a lot of you care about every vertical foot, but it's almost a meaningless stat to me. I mean I'll take Outpost's 500 vert over a lot of other So Vermont pods.  Out west skiing mountains with 3k+ verts, I never…

  • I'm thinking that late Summer into Fall rains that are cooling the environment in the Northeast like today 9/3/17 is a good omen. Season of 70/71 started this way and it was a blockbuster season. Not only that but this rain and more to come will fil…
  • I skied under the old "Bubble Chair" or Blue Chair way back when,  I don't think Pipeline is open anymore.  Not totally sure about the 2nd one  but plan on finding out this coming season with several visits there.  Haven't been in a fairly long time…
  • Anyone else agree with me that RFIDs are a pain-in-the-butt?  Perhaps they will be improved, but for now, I wouldn't categorize "installing an RFID system" as an improvement! Agreed, they make the lines move slower because they don't work if they a…
  • Anyone else agree with me that RFIDs are a pain-in-the-butt?  Perhaps they will be improved, but for now, I wouldn't categorize "installing an RFID system" as an improvement! No I think they are great.  Never had any real problems with them.  Was gr…
  • Follow-up: Which pass would those free agents best fit on and why? I think Smuggs would be a great addition to the MaxPass since northern Vermont is noticeably absent on that pass.  Maybe that's why they are going RFID.  I know for myself and my cur…
  • Is Ragged still a free agent? Berkshire East maybe? Waterville is on the White Mtn Superpass. Being on one pass does not mean they can't be on another.  Winter Park Co was on several different passes including Rocky Mountain Super Pass and Max (an…

  • wonder if that will be added to the max pass No way.  It will become part of the Aspen consortium when they release their new pass products next spring.  What happens to Solitude which is owned by the same people as DV has not been mentioned yet.  T…
  • Smuggs' is going RFID.  Maybe they are getting ready to join one of the multi-resort pass products like Max or Epic. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Usually the years I load up on advance passes/vouchers etc., the season turns out to be a bust I am considering the MAX pass, which would be my biggest advance cash outlay in ten years (it was the year Jeremy got all excited about the January "blowt…
  • It's been a little cool, and drier than normal here. Tomorrow IS August 1st. The white birch have been dropping some leaves the past couple days, I figured due to the dry conditions. A few of the maples usually start turning here by the second week …
  • Hey. I thought this was the Blue Knob thread. You Jersey boyz should start your own thread.Blue knob is better than Mountain Creek or any of it's earlier incarnations. Yea, didn't mean to step on BK.  The rep of Blue Knob was, nice terrain but lac…
  • For a "banana belt" ski area, I think the trail design at Great Gorge South was as good as it gets.  Really?  I respectfully disagree.  At the original area (aka GG South) the Kamakazi pod seems fine but I think the summit would be improved if th…

  • The map from this time period. How many are gone? :-(  Spent a lot of my youth going from NNJ to Madonna Mountain (aka Smugglers Notch) and always regretted never getting to Underhill Ski Bowl which was on the way and  still in operation in the late…

  • Aside from the members who do the really cool trip reports -- which we have a lot of, actually -- seems to me that the frequency/popularity of specific ski area mentions goes up and down with users who come and go.   A few years back we had a couple…
  • Went with the combination of  Max Pass and Camelback Pass this past season.  It was a good season with a total of 38 days which would have been better with a better early season weather wise.  Our boy has moved out west to Colorado and Max lined up …
