  • Excessive dedication.   Not for me but I was thinking that I didn't get enough quantity vs quality this past season.  Going to change that a little next season. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • 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 have stayed many times at a condominium (family friends) that is right next to the former base terminal of the single chair (whose skeleton still remains).  There has been a lot of building between there and the current base of 1A. I have skied do…
  • Boyne needs to get their hands on Solitude Ut.   Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • It's a shame because there was a lot of quality content on there from years past. At least in the case of Epic there was an announcement and a timeline that allowed for some degree of archiving. It looks like AZ is just abandoned. A lot of good co…
  • Camelback could have gone 2 more weeks easily when they closed.  If they wanted to they could have the Superstar set up a go really late on Cliffhanger.  Having been there after closing several times over the years I can tell you it retains snow qui…
  • That's a nice 2 some.  Ought to put  little pressure on the Jiminy and the Catskills. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • How about a high speed quad to replace 7 Brothers? I'm thinking of Stratton and how they use AmEx to Ursa to alleviate the gondola. Here you would could do an slightly extended 7 Bros, take The Link or Rolling Bear to North Peak or East Basin. You c…
  • My final thoughts on the subject.  Spring skipped me this year.  Just saw snow flakes mixed in with a little rain here in NNJ during my training this morning.  Never got that day/weekend  of soft bumps and sun I wanted but c'est la vie,  (grade will…
  • Why does everyone want to change the Loon Gondola?  I like it at 4, have people stand in line at the bottom not on the trails.  There are secondary ways to access those trails, not so on Killington peak.  Don't want to take your skis off go by chair…
  • 7 pm and Bridgewater may not work for me.  Understand people coming from all different directions.  5 might be doable for me somewhere. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Love the site as the 1st place I ever skied was Hidden Valley at Estes Park. Rio looked good on map but never skied or lay eyes on it. ` Would love to safari the Southwest one El Nino year from Angel Fire to Arizona Snow Bowl Alex Lake H…
  • Sounds like normal operating procedure, Snowbird had to close Peruvian when they re-cabled their tram last year.   Alex  Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Rick: You can paddle across the lake and get cheap drinks at Mason Street. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Driving sleet in Lincoln, NH for the past ~24hrs.  No real accumulations but a bullet proof coating on everything.  Today was supposed to be Cannon's last day but they couldn't even open.  Wildcat also closed due to weather.   Well at least Wildca…
  • Disppointment is all I can say about my numbers.  40 is the goal every season, that way my cost per day is a reasonable $30.00.  3rd year in a row, won't get there.  Not as bad as 2 years ago (20), not as good as last year (38 still below goal) I si…

  • Stone Water, Lake Hopatcong (Woodport) Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Thanks for the tips. I'm watching the forecast because there may be too much rain to make it worthwhile. Gotta think this quote sums up the season.(at least for me) Overall we got snow, we got cold, the base is there, things that make a season g…
  • Killington, the next 2 weekends. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Just dropped the dime on Ikon.  Will supplement with the Camelback Super Pass for holidays and non travel weekends.  Between 8 weekends in NE and most likely 2 trips out west (maybe 3) should be well worth it.  Aspen/Snowmass, Deer Valley, Alta/Snow…

  • Wow - anyone headed to CO high country in the next few days will do well.  25" since I left on Wed.  I've had better luck in the east this season.  Overall, a great season for me, but I missed out west on 2 separate trips by a day or 2.  Oh well.  I…
  • Last weekend (3/31 & 4/1) had some good spring conditions at Burke and some GREAT spring conditions at Loon. Today (4/7) flirted with spring at Cannon. It was so on the edge that every cloud made a difference. A shot of sun would instantly soft…

  • The back bowls of Vail get all the press, but those high, north facing bowls at Breck are very fun and have good snow preservation. Copper's are pretty good too. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Yea Marcski I heard the Cats got snow.  NY tv didn't comment on it so I found out too late or I would have hit Bell yesterday.   Supposed to be nice the end of this week but channel 2 in NY said weather late next weekend could get wild and temps d…
  • Having followed your adventure's over the years I have an idea and will keep it quiet for a while, except to say it's somewhere where I would like to be right now. Alex  Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Ok, so this is getting good.  The cold front that bombarded the northeast last night appears to be hell bent on sticking around.  I see freezing temps every night for the next week in here Sterling MA with daytime temps not above 50.  April skiing i…
  • Thanks JimK.  Coming from you that means a lot as I have marveled over your reports and pictures for years.  I bet our paths will cross in Utah as we are out there every year.   32 is a good total for living in the DC area. (got to be a tough area…
  • And what a March it was.  14 days, 7 areas, 5 states wrapped up here today in PA where it also started (something I never expected).  Let's see what April brings starting next weekend. Alex Lake Hopatcong, NJ
  • Stratton lodging link says April 8 is last day. Last weekend had a little chat with an employee and she said there was a chance they open the 14th/15th.  Sun Bowl (including Shooting Star) close Sunday.  We shall see.  I bet lodging would be ch…
