  • 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 Hopatcong, NJ
  • 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 Wildcat …
  • 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 good,…
  • 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 dro…
  • 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 t…
  • 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 chea…
  • March is usually the best month.  Maybe 93 with the Super Storm matches this one.    Its not only here but out west rebounded as well and If Joe Bastardi is correct "it ain't over yet"  All I know is my confidence in being able to ski straight throu…
  • Bromley is easy to see, Magic you get a small glimpse of, same with Okemo and Killington. Personally I've never been able to see Mount Snow from the trails at Stratton, likewise you can't see any Stratton trails from Mount Snow... I'm pretty sure y…
  • This is why you can't issue grades until its over.  This season has made an awesome come back and if JB is correct should go deep into April. I'm not even going to have to go to the Catskills this weekend to get in my solo day.  CBK is still at 100%…
  • Pico was a great time! Thanks for the responses and sorry for hijacking the OP’s thread Glad you enjoyed your day. Did you find many bumps? Lots of real nice ones at Mount Snow today. Was surprised since I was expecting thaw/freeze moguls. Que…
  • And the winner is...      (for this weekend) Stratton Mountain Resort. Reasons:  Shorter drive, woods open along with everything else, good hotel choice. One of the Catskill areas next Saturday, and then a 2nd trip to Lincoln NH the weekend of the 7…
  • Hope they save it.  Still bum out everytime over Berthoud Pass in Co that its not there anymore.  Lost Pass in Montana is another one I'd like to get to.  Jackson Hole closes so early you would think they get a decent late season crowd. Alex Lake Ho…
  • Cannon's pass prices DROPPED by $100.  So I'm in on that again.Also went with the Boyne Bronze+ for Sunday-Friday skiing at Loon, SR, and SL.  Good mixture.  Did you consider the White Mountain Super Pass or is it too much coin? (know its not cheap)…

  • I'd go south to north....more likely the souther places will lose snow faster than northern ones There's a lot to like about this strategy.  I am most likely going to hit Belleayre or Windham next Saturday because of the need to be home Easter Sunda…

  • Awesome, wish I had known you were there, we could have had a couple. Hear nothing but great things about Crested Butte and a little sorry I didn't get there on Max as I will probably go Ikon Next year (going Epic next year Rick?)  Will miss Okemo a…
  • Part IV  The Other Stuff: The wife and I really liked the way the trip played out with a good amount of skiing and sufficient rest too. We were very satisfied with the hotels we stayed at.  The Holiday Inn in Steamboat is really nice with a Hot Tub/…
