  • Well #1 as a snowboarder I'm not a Tbar fan to say the least #2 there goes early season options unless you want a hilariously pathetic T-bar only option #3 personal sentimental reasons having grown up with WV as my first big ski area back in the ear…
  • I absolutely HATE this decision. HATE HATE HATE it. I realize I’m alone on the forum with that stance, but I could not hate it more. It is such a cheap out for management and pathetic really.
  • What the hell, your poor car! Jesus that is entirely too much driving around. I would slim down the whole am/pm thing at least.
  • Cranmore is a good time. Loon is a treacherous drive away over the Kanc so I would not recommend that drive in winter plus crowds on weekends are INSANE. Black is pretty unique in today’s day and age and may not be open in the future so go support t…
  • What a joke! Bromley is often more expensive than Snow or Stratton when it comes to midweek if you buy online.
  • West should never be compared to those mountains..... Hunter shouldn't even be in the conversion with Snow or Stratton. Gore is even iffy in that company. Mount Snow and Stratton are conglomerate resorts. Gore is state run and Hunter a 1500 foot par…

  • I'd certainly say it's a smaller feeder hill, I think the skier visit numbers would also show that. Especially looking at it compared to Hunter, Mount Snow, Stratton, Gore even.

  • Dead. It's really too bad, Balsams was a beautiful property once upon a time.

  • > @ski_it said: > After revisiting these comments I'm going to have to switch over to Sully's point of view, BUT I also put a lot of blame on the mountain. I guess I don't know what the Discovery Shuttle or Disco Shuttle referred to. I didn'…
  • 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.
