  1. How was your 2020/2021 season compared to past seasons and compared to expectations? Ignoring all the Covid factors, I'd give this season 4 stars out of 10. We didn't get an early start, we got several major meltdowns, we didn't get any spectacular big dumps, we had below average snowfall, and we had average to early closings. I might have rated it even lower except we had 3 great weeks of spring skiing that we don't always get (at Cannon anyway). Covid added a whole bunch of minuses and pluses. Covid restrictions had my expectations for the season really, really low. But locally

  2. How much are we talking about needing for fundraising each year? I am up for straight up contributing toward that. Mostly I lurk because I can't think of something better to say. I am not sure how to get more engagement here, but I think Weatherman (and everyone else involved) with planning last year's Wildcat Lot C cookout was on the right path. What I mean is, coming to a message board should enhance the activity. Fishers go to message boards to exchange tips. Same with car forums. That doesn't really exist with skiing, mountain biking, etc. You need to be there and see if to really he

  3. You and weatherman did a nice job of putting this together and keeping it going. It's the best layout of any of the forums. It's lack of expansion is really out of your hands. The reality is that the era of forums is mostly over. Some of the biggest ski forums in history have died off in the past few years. AZ, Snowjournal, and a few others are barely hanging on with the established base that they've had for a long time. But they aren't growing either and they are on borrowed time as their base ages or tunes out. The rise of skiing-based groups on FB and Reddit has killed forums. It's ju

  4. Cannon on Friday, first powder day since the first week of February. Good grief. Depending on what happens near the summit, it may be my best or second best powder day of the season (only one day of a foot or more all season). Woo!?

  5. Got to loon for opening, decent temps and almost sunny ! Picked up my New NEP Bronze Pass and Heading to the Gondi ! Hit everything that was open, really decent coverage considering the winter we had. Conditions were great, not too much brown to go around ! Sun didnt last long but didnt start to rain till just after noon, slight sprinkle and next run it had stopped. Not a bad first day back to Loon !

  6. I think I was just so grateful to have a season at all that I'd rate it a 6. Yes, the season started slow and late, but February conditions were pretty freaking nice, and the spring skiing was great. We had the WM SuperPass (usually ski Cannon and BW only), and barely skied at BW due to crowds, parking, etc., but I thought Cannon really upped their grooming game this year. We usually only to BW for the glades, and with the low snow, they weren't great this year anyway.

  7. Great thread. I'm in Utah and still skiing frequently for another month or so. I'm making up for a late start. I didn't get my first lift served day until Feb 19, 2021. But this season posed some unique and sometimes wrenching problems. I'm the guy that tries to post as many mouthwatering ski photos as possible, but this winter was very humbling for me. I became the guy sitting on the sidelines. My usual plan in recent years is to remain in the east for early season, ski locally a few times, and then go west to Utah for an extended stay and more skiing. As I was planning to do a a

  8. 7/10 Had some solid days at Wildcat. Sunapee skied well both times I was there, crowds be damned. Got a powder day and just about all of the trees in at Crotched during one particular visit. Mac race league was a blast for 7 or 8 Tuesdays. Cannon was oddly very good on the coldest day of the season. Kid got into the trees and bumps and absolutely LOVED them. A lot clicked for him this season. Tailgating and shooting the shit with friends was more fun than it was a punishment for no lodge.

  9. I think it was a 5 even though I got 68 days and ~600k of vert. I did get a run of mini powder days in mid Jan to early Feb. The front five did get boring with the visibility issues. I made it over to Mitty once and the snow on trials was awesome. The glade skiing at Cannon was terrible. I got into the summit glades once on a good day and then on another warm day they sucked. Styrofoam snow. I did get some good glade days at BW if you can call them glades.

  14. Congrats to Loon Mountain for being open the latest in New Hampshire! What the hell happened to Wildcat? Why did they close so early this year? Covid? Vail?

  15. While we were there last Saturday, they had a great day with New Blegium Beers, a cardboard box race, and a wonderful band- all in the sun! They announced that they hit their targets for visits this year. The place is amazing and seamless. My favorite part was an airport like kiosk that you put your email code from your online purchase in front of and it spits out RFID tickets. EASY PEASY

  16. Adding another fuck yeah. Also a big thanks to everyone who's donated thus far. Agree with @Cannonballerabout working on the content. If we can start to get some new members the site should be self sustaining in short order so hopefully no more fundraisers.

  17. Fuck yeah! It's great to clear that money hurdle for our host. Now let's work on the content hurdle! That's the big one if we want to swear for years to come!

  18. 4/8 Update: We've had several very generous offers to help fund the site. I've put up a Donation link at the top to see if we can raise enough to keep going for another year. If we don't hit the target amount then the Donations will be refunded. Thanks to everyone who's offered to help out. ------------------------------------------------ 4/2 Update: I just stopped the automatic payments on the forum software. The service expires on 4/21. If anyone wants to take over then please let me know so we can get everything transferred. If not, it's been a fun ride and I'll be sorr

  19. Easter 2010 for me. This video is dated 4/2/20, might be wrong though. My old photos are a mess. I skied today, it was 75, and once when it was 75 at Greek Peek in 2019. 282.MOV

  20. I hit Loon on Wednesday and Friday this week. Wednesday was 60 degrees, mostly sunny, with no crowds. They are down to Gondola and North Peak. The vibe in the lot was great. Only about half full, but the people that were there were all smiles with grills and beers going every where. Conditions and coverage was surprisingly fantastic! These days Cannon is clinging to scraps and I expected the same at Loon. Instead I found excellent base depths and luscious corn/slush. They have snow to spare and are strategically stockpiling so that they can keep this thing going! Friday w

  22. That's very generous. I've thrown up a donation link at the top of the forum. If we don't hit the annual goal then I'll return the donations. If we're able to get enough to fund the full year then we'll be able to stay online. Thanks

  26. Yes the crowds are done for the year it seems. Today was like last year, as was some of last week. I see no reason they won't make their April 4th closing date.

  28. Skiing this week and next week look really good. The week that ends with April 4th of course is unknown, but that's as far as they're selling tickets for right now. Almost 3 full weeks of skiing (at least) left. Squeeze every drop out of that grapefruit.

  29. was out there sunday...what a crazy weather day...showed up around 10a, beautiful bluebird day with temps around 40. Around noon, clouds and wind rolled in. Winds continued to pick up as the time passed, and shortly started snowing like crazy. Nice that it was snowing, but it was glue on the mountain. Was with a group of kids that are still learning and i had to pull them down the trails off sundowner. On a positive note, saw this posted, looking good for another month or so of skiing assuming nature cooperates: Snowmaking in March? We did it. With the blast of cold temps we w
