  1. Once that funk gets in the boot its pretty tough to get rid of. Have you tried new footbeds?
  2. It wasn't related to snowmaking, I was mistaken on the date of the rescue. The incident happened on Friday afternoon. I was there on Saturday and the snowmaking fog was as bad as I've ever seen it. If it had indeed happened on Saturday then I could have seen the fog being a factor.
  3. The photographs are cool but don't really demonstrate what it's like to be skiing or riding in it. Here's some from a few years ago
  4. Yeah that's my mistake. I got the article in a text thread on Sunday morning and didn't read it well enough and assumed it was from Saturday. And if the kids hiked up instead of taking a lift then that's definitely their own fault but that wasn't mentioned in the article so... My original point was about the snowmaking haze/fog that these new High E guns at Cannon can cause at times. I'm not talking about cloud cover or even the traditional gun spray that freezes on your goggles as you ride past. The fog/haze that these guns create is very distinct and if I had to guess, it probabl
  5. https://patch.com/new-hampshire/across-nh/two-snowboarders-lost-whiteout-cannon-mountain-rescued Call was received at 5:40 about two missing snowboarders. They weren't rescued until 10:20 PM. They were found wet and freezing on the backside of the mountain after getting lost and disoriented on their final run of the day. While it's probably a bit hypocritical for me to bitch about Cannon making snow, this "whiteout" condition was caused entirely by the snowmaking system. The visibility yesterday was probably less than 5 feet from about a 1/3rd of the way up the mountai
  6. Classic. They wrote in their report Saturday afternoon that they were going to focus on making that cat track better and somehow it's worse.
  7. Good luck with the app. How do you plan on supporting it if there's no ads and it's free? Is there a premium version? If so, what features are not included in the free model? Also is there an option to export GPX files? No offense but if a largely used app like Trace couldn't survive I wouldn't feel comfortable using a somewhat newer one if there's a chance I couldn't retrieve my data if you were to go under...
  8. Cannon says no open fires so I'm not sure a firepit would fly.
  9. Here's the updated spreadsheet. Pulled all the data from OpenSnow. Some mountains weren't showing as updated since the grinch storm so perhaps not 100% accurate Mobile Friendly Link- https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CA8qaLqnIetYJGRtmcws8rhWgw_F_4p_dOjFEuMb8AE/edit?usp=sharing Pre-Storm Post Storm Resort Name Trails Open Percent Trails Open Trails Open Percent Trails Open Net Change - Trails Killington Resort Vermont,
  10. Here's the note from their facebook. Pictures of the damage below. Luckily no one was there. 2020 can't end soon enough
  11. Interesting to see how everyone has done up until now. These counts will surely be dropping after this Xmas debacle. Not sure how this will format on the board so here's a direct link to the Google Sheet https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1CA8qaLqnIetYJGRtmcws8rhWgw_F_4p_dOjFEuMb8AE/edit?usp=sharing Resort Name Base Depth Lower/Upper Lifts Open Total Lifts Percent Lifts Open Trails Open Total Trails Percent Trails Open Okemo Mountain Resort Vermont,
  12. Hit Cannon today. Probably skip the weekend wit this current forecast.
  13. I know @xwhaler has been unhappy with Vail so far. Does the apology from Rob Katz do anything or just more empty corporate speak? https://www.vaildaily.com/news/vail-resorts-ceo-apologizes-for-unacceptable-customer-service-waits/
  14. Can't figure out a direct link. I just clicked Discover then searched Northeast and it came up.
  15. Solid opening day. Definitely the most trails they've opened with in a few years at least. Snow was decent, soft as long as you stayed away from the whales and snowmaking blow-over on the lower mountain. Upper Mountain was in nice shape. Tough light all day. The Covid stuff wasn't too bad. The line at Cannonball could use a little work so people aren't falling down a glacier. Hopefully they keep capping the amount of day passes as the non-grouping for the lift definitely slows things down.
  16. RIP Trace. Loved the jump counting feature despite @ABVhacking and exploiting it. I used Ski Tracks a long time ago and it looks like it hasn't been updated all these years I've been using Trace. I tried Slopes today and while the UI is nice, it seems like most of the decent features are behind an absurdly priced paywall. Zero chance I pay $25 annually for that, especially when its still Beta for Android. Might have to try out Strava next
  17. You now have no excuse to not follow me anywhere I go
