  3. Today
  4. We were at Sugarloaf for the weekend, probably the only weekend we'll spend there this year. With the IKON pass, we had days to use for free, so although the mountain report looked questionable (it said to have an extra cup of coffee and some pancakes...), we decided to give it a go (albeit a little later than normal). We got on the slopes just as they were opening the SuperQuad, and did 5-ish laps on that. People were saying the top was pretty knarly, so we stayed lower on the mountain. Conditions were pretty good with warm temps and 2-3" of wet snow. There was no ice, but the kids' legs were tired from pushing around the heavy snow (and mine too, if I'm being honest). We had an early lunch and headed up to the King pine chair afterwards. The temps were starting to drop and things were firming up. Everything skied REALLY nicely after lunch, and we got in another 5-ish runs before calling it a day to make the 4-hour trek back home. Overall, it was a great weekend with MUCH better conditions on Sunday than I had anticipated!
  5. One of the New York Times politics reporters, who has covered the NH primaries many times, squeezes in runs at Cranmore and Black Mountain between campaign events. https://www.nytimes.com/2020/01/21/travel/new-hampshire-primary-ski.html?action=click&module=Editors Picks&pgtype=Homepage
  6. Yesterday
  7. I bailed on Sunday ! Saturday was better than expected. Wind was picking up when we left.
  8. Currently 35* and a nasty rain at my place in between the lakes and the whites. Here is the report from Cannon: "The forecast is calling for a weather event to hit us tonight with some snow and some rain. Wind could also be a factor in the early morning tomorrow..." That is definitely a stay-away type reporting from Cannon. If you guys hit it up, I'm interested in a damage report but not interested enough to drive up to inspect in person.
  9. Last week
  10. I heard Eli is coming out of retirement to throw for the Pat's! Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  11. I just looked up that post. Given that it was posed as a nonsequiter question with no other context or support, I would rate it as less than a zero in terms of reliable information. Not sure the Red Sox are going to still be in Boston next year...??
  12. Sat- attitash. Sun- hopefully Cat. But it sounds like rain.
  13. Havent heard anything about that, Id be pretty surprised if they did drop it. they must make a ton of money off it
  14. Someone made a post on AZ, does anyone have insight about the White Mountain Super Pass going away next season? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

  16. Thursday - Crotched race league Saturday - Attitash race Sunday - ??? open to suggestions in the MWV. Thinking about Bretton Woods
  17. What have you been smoking? And are you willing to share?
  18. Does anyone else see a Sasquatch in the pine tree center of the picture? Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  19. Saturday - Wachusett ski trip with the Jr High [emoji33] Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  20. Here's a kind of blurry picture of the base terminal for this lift: I'm not a big fan of loading conveyors, but supposedly they lower mishaps for newbies. This has one and it worked fine the other day in super light weekday skier traffic. There's a carpet lift in the covered structure to left for never-evers. There is at least one other chair and carpet lift at Bryce. It's a great learning hill.
  21. I heard Wachusett was a mad house. Lots full, cars parked on Mountain Rd out to Rt 140. They sold out Sunday. So many people posting on Facebook they were out skiing that day... Thankfully I was at Burke (first time there, great mountain!). It was also busy but by noon people's legs had tired out from the 8 inches of powder and the lift line was nil all afternoon. I guess the un-holy combination of MLK weekend + snow in people's back yards all the way to Connecticut really got people up to the mountains. I'm glad the mountains got the business.
  22. Sat & Sun: Sugarloaf And maybe Monday too if the storm is big enough...
