  • 6pm and I can confirm the temps are dropping FAST up here in VT. It's already down to a chilly 46° up on top of the mountain in Searsburg. I mean if they wanted to Snow could probably have a lot of fun tonight. It's going to be colder than was forec…
  • > @joshua_segal said: > Is this good or bad? It's not great news, but it is not bad bad bad like the reports for Q1 a couple years back when things were starting to spiral before the EB-5 money arrived. They really need some more cash o…
  • Whoa, SJ has come so far lol and really been brought into the 21st century, look at that, we have videos within posts now, TEH HAPS!
  • YES! They had these things at LAAX when I went over to Switzerland to go riding in March! I kid you not I have videos of me riding a bubble quad chair up over 7,000ft and above the tree line in a legit 45mph+ steady crosswind just ripping across the…
  • Still crazy after all these years. My comments come from spending a week there last winter trying to get a beginner around. From the top of Discovery, it is, no kidding, all downhill with cuts in the trees in all the right spots to get to Sundance. …
  • Ego was a nice chair when it went all the way to the bottom. They oddly placed, crunched up new lower terminal area that is up a staircase (!) from the hotel and pretty far from the base Lodge and parking is much less useful. And it's aging. If ther…

  • I guess another option I didn't really think about... As long as that haul rope is strung and ready to go they can use as many of the new cabins as they have tested and approved. Realistically the gondi is just used to get folks up and down from the…
  • I wonder what the backup plan is for early season skiing if the K1 Gondola is not ready to go. I was wondering the same thing last night when i was over on k-zone and I am beginning to think they may try and open the new six pack over on Snowdon a…
  • I think in the case of Prospect they would have needed such a small system given the small size of operation and the insane amount of natural snowfall year after year in that little gully and peak. Be that as it may, they have a full lake directly a…
  • Agree about King Ridge being one that should still be open, same for Temple. Now with summer activities seemingly helping the bottom line a little more every year there's probably a few places out there that could still be going today. I think even …
  • I wonder if this Killington was one of the other mountains WV beat out. This is really fantastic news for the whole valley, Town square will be busy for a couple extra weeks mid winter.
  • Compared to Killington, Jay Peak, Okemo, Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Mount Snow, Sugarbush, etc Burke is very much second class. Hence why it has struggled so much for most of its life and now the place might need even more work before a buyer can be f…
  • Attitash has spent a pretty healthy amount on summer activities especially that zipline, but the lack of investment the past couple years while we in Vermont get the goods must be tough. On the Mt snow front I am wondering if the crowds will evacu…
  • As someone who was ALL about WV in the SJ1.0 days, learned to snowboard, introduced a lot of friends to the sport, and fell in love with riding there I get it. Like others have said, it's just a bit outclassed. The High Country pod is fun, but 85% o…
  • Surprised I'm the first to mention it, but the Schwendi Hutte at Waterville around roughly 3,800' is amazing. Great views in an awesome old school structure with surprisingly good food. Out of bounds, I went to Laax in Switzerland in March and…
  • I find it most interesting that Peaks NH resorts were barely mentioned at all while the two big resorts got the real coverage. I know there is less going on, but still.
  • Jeez, talk about blowing smoke up their own behinds. I love the line "which are already standard on Techno-Alpin as standard" aka this is us saying nothing to have something to say. Interesting little note here, Hermitage was a major part of T-A com…
  • > @Cannonball said: > Increasing the uphill capacity at Loon should not be a consideration. Loon's slopes are dangerously overcrowded as it is already. Lift lines are the only thing keeping the slopes even remotely bearable and safe …
  • Whattttttttttt are those!!! No but really what is this? From what I gathered the State of PA is paying to reopen a PALSAP(Jeremy can have that one) area that closed after 2013/14? And not just reopen, but investing heavily and installing new lifts? …
  • https://vtdigger.org/2018/05/25/maple-valley-ski-area-dummerston-sells-745k/ $745,000 is not too bad for a place that sat idle since before the iPhone or Windows XP for that matter!
  • Both lifts have been well taken care of and should be able to serve a lot longer due to their low-ish hours for their age. Also, they use the Pisten Bully 600 and then there's the Cattilac with the person carrier on the back that also sees light dut…
  • It's not too much honestly, not for the experience you were getting and they weren't running a charity unless you count Barnes and his cronies. It went up to $85 once the Barnstormer went in, aka when the experience became a complete 5 star level of…
  • What has me puzzled about the whole Saddleback situation is that doing nothing has to be just as bad an option for the Berrys as anything.  Why?  Because there has to be debt service on the company, although who knows how much debt there is?  I can'…
  • OK Joshua.  One more question.  Do you know if the Berrys are in a post-Majella mindset?  Or do they believe that Sebastian Monsour's latest move, setting up a dunk booth he will be manning in Portland ME to raise sufficient funding to close the dea…
  • OR do the members have to pay their dues still? I'm thinking that is a big no, but then again without that income there is no income at all.
  • Until proven otherwise we must asume tix cant be sold to general public. If they could, Mt. Snow would be more interested. As it stands there is no reason for Mt. Snow to buy it and you can be sure their legal dpt. will make sure that the rule is we…
  • The deed says that lift tickets can never be sold to the general public Words that I also lived by on this subject until it was suggested to me that that "rule" ASC put in the deed was only valid for ten years. If that is not true then you just ha…
  • I agree it does not ski as big as Bromely but cannot remember the mid mountain flat people are talking about maybe I had more speed going in to it than most. I have not skied the new haystack but yeah going to the true bottom was a chore and only so…
  • It would be fantastic if Peak did this after getting Mount Snow on the run they are on with West Lake, Carinthia, beating K early season and pushing late. However, as many are probably about to yell about, Peak seems to have exactly zero interest in…
