  1. Past hour
  2. Today
  3. I meant like you leave the house with a your wife's pass or something.
  4. ^Awesome. Nice show for Whaleback! Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  5. Whaleback Mountain

    First run overnight. Hopefully temps come down soon again! Enjoy.
  6. Powder ski width

    Those are awesome @Cornhead.
  7. I think it’s way too risky. As was purposely made clear by Win’s post - the lifties are motivated to catch people with the promise of a cash bonus. It’s not worth messing around in my opinion. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  8. Powder ski width

    I picked up a pair of Volkl Kuros a couple years ago. They're insanely wide, 132 underfoot. They're really big mountain skis, not powder skis, but I'm happy with them. They're pretty stiff, metal top sheet. They do ski chop well, and are pretty fun on anything but ice. Much better in powder than anything else I own. Here's one of them next to a water ski the shop happened to have on hand. The water ski is a tad wider, but the Kuro has more surface area. I haven't tried them on the lake yet. I would like to get towed behind my buddy's snowmobile on them sometime. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  9. The fact that they caught someone already says otherwise. Apparently not only does it show the picture on file, but the screen also shows the last 2 or 3 times times you went through the gates. So if you suddenly are wearing different clothes than the last time you went through the gates, that's a potential tip off. As for Stein's speculation...I think it mainly has to due with Win being obsessed with the Valley House chair. In his latest blog post he also mentioned that it has been his goal to be able to open Spring Fling first ever since they put in that chair if they could get the weather to cooperate. Once you have that side of the mountain open, it seems somewhat logical to continue expansion on that side if you have temps. You can always go back and hit Ripcord when temps down low become more marginal. Plus more terrain on the Valley House side takes pressure off of Downspout since people will be more spread out instead of everyone lapping HG every run.
  10. Ripcord before Steins may be due to elevation, since they have limited options to expand in marginal temperatures. There was one year recently when they ran out of upper mountain trails to open in marginal temperatures so I guess open lower mountain trails while you can.
  11. Sugarbush 17-18 Season Thread

    They blow on Ripcord before Stein's (at least the past several years).
  12. Back to the Steins speculation... Maybe they are(were) making snow on it because it is their signature run. That seems reasonable to me. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  13. Ski Vermont 3-packs and 5-packs

    [emoji51] Got our 3 packs as well. The 5 packs will probably arrive tomorrow. No word on the ski vt 5th grade passport yet. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  14. Sounds like it will be really easy for family members and friends to switch passes.
  15. No, there's no picture on the passes, but there is one in the computer on file for each pass. So when you pass through the gates, the picture shows up on the tablets that the lift ops have.
  16. Ski Vermont 3-packs and 5-packs

  17. With next week looking warmer I wonder if CMs target opening for next Saturday is in jeopardy? Mid 40s during the day next week and very few nights below freezing. We shall see I guess. I have heard the pond is totally full so at least there's that Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  18. Ski Vermont 3-packs and 5-packs

    Mine came in the mail yesterday but almost lost them as my 14 year old son dropped them in the driveway . My wife found them. They were wet but we dried them and we are good to go
  19. Do the new passes not have a picture on them?
  20. Wildcat Mountain AMA

    There are often spring days that attract thousands of skiers to Tuckerman Ravine where the Cat seems pretty quiet. Ever thought about a cross Pinkham partnership? Have the caretakers at Hojos hand out $30 spring ticket coupons for the Cat. It might convince some of the many who make the pilgrimage to ski Tucks to spend an extra night in the valley and ski Wildcat the next day Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  21. Wildcat Mountain AMA

    Has consideration ever been given to lift serviced Mountain biking in the summer? I don't ride, but I imagine those that do would really dig ripping down Wildcat with the views of Washington across the street like us skiers do in Winter Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  22. Happy Thanksgiving folks

    Thanks Cannonballer, the same wishes to you. As Shirley MacLaine said "Thanksgiving is the time that you get together with your family and find out who the real turkey is." 6 times on snow before Thanksgiving for me, a new record and a great start to the season. Back on snow Friday.
  23. Ryan's Beer Thread

    I picked up a six pack of Rogue Six Hop IPA today. I've been basically avoiding buying anything from large breweries and staying within my local radius for awhile, but figured I'd give a west coast beer a try. Just ok Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  24. Hah! At least that is an honest mistake you can explain. The one Win is referring to I'm sure was more intentional unfortunately.
  25. Killington Early Season Prices

    True, and there are a lot of places that never seem to show up on Liftopia. I don't know how anyone can pay window ticket prices. It's $62 at Blue Mountain PA to ski with ten thousand other people, half of whom are drunk, on 160 acres. I have no patience for the handwringing articles in Outside, et al. asking "how can we grow the sport of skiing?" Jeebus, what do you think you can do!? Why do you think i't;s
  26. That happened to me today! My son and I have the same name and I didn’t know which was which. Fortunately, our passes were NOT confiscated. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
