  1. I got the clearance from the ortho today for skiing. I need to take it easy until January. Groomers and open trial only. Then all hell breaks loose. Bey Bey. I also had about 50cc drained from and cortisone shot. Time to buzz the tower!

  2. It was unexpected but Loon announced on Sunday 11/29 that they would open for the season on Monday 11/30. The opening was for passholders only and it's staying that way through 12/13. That's the first time I've ever heard of 2 straight weeks of passholder only. I assume this season will be full of firsts. It does make some sense for Loon though considering they have been hit with the triple blow of Covid, unfavorable weather, and a crippling ransomware attack. It seems like they are just hoping to work out the kinks. The ransomware thing was especially bad. Through most of October and N

  3. i was at wachusett sat and sun for a couple of hours each afternoon. not super busy which was good, not the best coverage, but where they had made snow, it was a nice spring like soft cover of about 8" in most places...sundowner, conifer and ralphs all skied pretty similarly in terms of snow...the narrow runoff at ralphs isnt the best with kids, but it does the trick. Looks like they will be blowing more snow as the temps cooperate which is good. I'm somewhat concerned about the viability of a full ski season if things get worse with covid. Both days there was blatant disregard of the

  5. Upper ravine and Taft slalom may be lit up. Tramway and upper cannon were going this morning after clouds broke. I thought that I should start one over here with the grammar more accurate. Just because there are a few of us around here.

  6. A lot of rain last night and 60F when we woke up. Not good. Upper Cannon has some breaks in it. Tramway and Upper Ravine look ok from what I can see. Taft looked ok yesterday from Sugar Hill side. Missing Link has some snow. Big Link has nothing. Pray for cold.

  7. I have just heard that Wachusett will not be opening their lodge for the rest of this season, pending State guidance changing for the better. They do have access to the indoor bathrooms via an attendant at the door. Plus porta potties outside. Freezing, windy days are going to be challenging. This could actually add to things that will assure a longer season as it leaves less room for error.

  8. I got out yesterday for a couple hours. I did about 6 runs with the first off the Gondi. There were no lines to be had on either lift. Slopes were not to crowded. Coverage was very good and mashed potatoes. Hip felt good but I was little tentative on first run. Next runs were much more confident.

  9. Cannon is blowing up high again. I can see on my webcam. It is too grainy to post. I will be back up Friday morning and will post a pic.

  10. We got some ice skates and snow shoes for treking around in the woods by our house. Sad to think the season could be squashed so quickly. But it seems very possible.

  11. Exterior? Try polishing compound if not to deep. Some scratches are considered normal wear and tear.

  12. Looks like Jones is all-in on NOW's Skate Tech system. Looking at you @fcksummer! I'll be scouring for some deals this season. They ain't cheap! https://www.jonessnowboards.com/content/311-introducing-the-2021-bindings-collection?mc_cid=bced98c705&mc_eid=aea4b0d80e

  13. I gotta tell you, the click monies ARE down ⬇ but I've always been committed to keeping the site running. I had to make a choice recently as vbulletin was really end of life with recurring downtime issues, security problems, spam issues, and outdated PHP problems that made for a shitty user experience - do I let the site die off, or do I invest and give it the new platform it needs. chose the latter.

  14. Problem solved. There is a Setting for this in your profile/manage followed content. See photo. I changed it to "take me to comments I haven't read." Maybe this changed back to the default when the software was upgraded.

  16. That's often there plan in practice. They try not to and so they will move down the mountain since downloading Bravo is a huge pain. Its about 30 of uphill to get to the top of Bravo from Heavens Gate. One year they went for Snowball to lower Snowball instead.

  17. I've been back in the Wash DC area since late July. Trying to ride my old hybrid bike fairly often. Here are some photos from the East, Aug-Sep 2020. Spent two weeks in Aug at the beach in North Carolina, often rode on the nice flat road seen to right below next to ocean. My wife enjoyed riding at the beach too. This is a bike trail near my home in Northern VA. It's green here! And there are a lot of people and deer. This is the house I grew up in. My parents bought it new in 1959 for $25,000 and owned it for 45 years. Probably worth +800K now.

  19. Northest Mountain Sports shows up as a user for me, not a forum. I think I am stuck in a support forum for the software.
