  1. Yesterday
  2. Breckinridge is opening late and keystone is opening early to replace A Basin on the epic pass. But I don’t think those mountains are as good of a setup for a long season.
  3. Never understood Vail’s pricing! I can get the Epic Veterans Pass for $529. Also. You can get the Epic Local Pass for $110 more than the 6 flex pass. I am sure they set it up that way to get people to buy full passes. We are getting confused - too many pass products to decide on. A Basin Veterans Pass is $199 which we will definitely get. Liberty Pass for Veterans is $269 for Keystone. Epic Veterans Pass at $529 is pretty sweet too but no A Basin which for us is key to a long season and no partner resorts, just Vail owned. Epic Local is $699. Which gives us a Japan trip option in Habuka, and lots of partner resorts. Loveland Pass is $419 and gives us about 6-9 days at other resorts. Current plan is A Basin and Loveland. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  4. Last week
  5. I was there today as well. The ice on the headwall didn't actually "soften up" but there were piles to turn on. I got there around 8:45 skied until 1. All was bumped up but there was not actual ice but what looked like ice but you could turn on it.
  6. Impressive amount of snow remains, the headwall was down to ice by 9:00, may have softened throughout the day but I left early, had to be home at 1:00. Day #75, a personal record. Little doubt they will make next weekend, left thinking I was done but after a few beers thinking I may have 1 - 2 left in me.
  7. I am in for Cannon next season. It was a hard decision between Cannon or Jay. But I need motivation to get more days in next year. I will drive 40 minutes when conditions are below par but I no longer have the motivation to drive 2 hours for less than ideal conditions. This will actually be my first time as a Cannon season pass holder despite having well over 100 days skied at Cannon, more than any other area except Jay. I will supplement the season pass with a Mad Card and some vouchers to Jay and Smuggs through my ski club. I'd love to meet up with the other Cannon regulars next season. I think I've only meet puckit from the regular Cannon crew.
  8. Well for us the season has been really good. The number of days are not quite as high as we would have liked but non skiing vacations killed about four weekends. We got a ton of snow in Colorado and conditions were great all season. We got to ski powder with 900 acres open on October 13th at Wolf Creek which was a first for us since most early openings are WROD. As it stands we will probably make it to the third weekend in June and possibly later. We also plan to hike St Mary’s glacier and get turns in July so our story still unfolds.

  9. Second ride last night for 5 miles after a couple of weeks for brake issues and hip problems. Both appear to be fixed. I hope to get out consistently now.
  10. 'Elevate for Strava'. It's an extension (Chrome and Firefox) that pulls in Strava data and adds a ton of additional analysis and features. https://thomaschampagne.github.io/elevate/#/landing
  11. What app is this that you're using to track your total distance?
  12. I am about 12 days off the river. I scored a Grand Canyon permit for April 2019. 20 days of... Well, there are no words to describe it! My mind is reeling. Very hard adjustment back into society. Anyone done it? I found my crew through a west coast forum, though I live in Philly. But I now need to find some people around here who share similar interests. We did most of the major hikes in there. Unbelievable. Weather was perfect, canyon was in bloom, and the water was great! 14 months of anticipation and now it's over! Heartbroken! I need to continue with major hikes and camping and the river life!
  13. Got a few rides in this week so far. With the consistent rain I expected the bugs to be intolerable, but they haven't been bad at all. It's the pollen that's been the issue. Just clouds of it in the air...and in your lungs and eyes.
  14. Earlier
  15. Perfect day today, was in line for first chair, got in a dozen runs before responsibility called The reservoir took a hit last week but June lift served is almost a certainty in the east I will be there at least one day per weekend as long as the lift spins, always up for a beer if anyone else makes it Pictures from #74
  16. I planned to do a couple of these but finally realized that it was never going to happen. 17 pair of old high end/racing skis ( mostly Olin and rossignol) went in the driveway dumpster a couple years ago! well done, beaut!

  18. Well being stuck in the Cleveland area i did get to explore a few breweries. https://www.greatlakesbrewing.com/ good Imperial IPA 9.5% https://www.marketgardenbrewery.com/ good nitro Stout and a couple of nice IPA's. They also had a 15.5% Belgian Quad http://brimbrewery.com/ - Wasn't impressed - over priced http://www.willoughbybrewing.com/ - good Imperial stout - Nut Smasher 11.5% (also had a coconut version) https://bookhouse.beer/home/ Great English Pale Ale wife liked the Key lime Gose http://nanobrewcleveland.com/ - limited selection had way more guest taps than their own (6) Nothing stood out Also went to 3 wineries. 1 fancy 1 laid back 1 in the middle
  19. I have Columbia jacket and pants and a north face packable that I wear on cold days under my jacket. I just throw it in the laundry with regular detergent. Washed 3 times this season and had them for 2 years. We buy every 3-4 years. Never really thought about washing gear much, clearly! Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  20. Snowbird May 9 was a mini powder day. May 11 at Snowbird was a classic sunny spring ski day. Still lots of snow in them thar hills. May 11, 2019 was my last day of skiing this winter. Soon I head to CA then eventually circle back to VA. It was a good winter. I hit 50 days, maybe 51. I lost track at one point during a crazy/snowy March. I feel blessed.
  21. Quite good. I’ve had two good IPAs from Branch and Blade and a mediocre one. I think they’re doing well.
  22. Most likely my last day. Been an awful spring but today was pretty awesome. Down to just Superstar unless you're fine with walking.
  23. Good day today, #47 for the daughter, #73 for the old guy
  24. Yeah. Great beer. (Just FYI, they mispronounce it to rhyme with whiny.)
  25. I have yet to have Pliny. Need to rectify that Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  26. I prefer them, too, but it’s hard to argue with a Russian River Pliny.
  27. We have good friends that drink a ton of Sam products. Not my first choice but not terrible by any stretch. 60 Minute was a favorite for a while several years ago. Been 3-4 years now since I've had even one though. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  28. Killington is offering $20 tickets on Saturday to celebrate their 200th day. A good deal for anyone looking to get in one more day.
