  1. Wasnt able to make it out to any swaps this year and now I'm looking for 120cm skis for my son. Let me know what you have!
  2. Whats the forum's thoughts on mask use this winter? Neck gaiter/balaclava sufficient, something underneath? Anyone look into some options by gear companies like these: https://www.outdoorresearch.com/us/face-mask-kit-283298 https://www.hellyhansen.com/hh-lifa-face-mask-20404?avad=217625_e1d999ff9utm_medium=affiliate&utm_source=avantlink&utm_campaign=169989&ad_name=Custom+Link
  3. update, only passes currently available are sr. gold and sr. bronze. that window closed fast, but on a positive note, it sounds like pass holders will have full access to the mountain with restrictions on day passes.
  4. Never to early, right? I've bought our family passes again for this year and looking forward to regularly heading to wachusett as a respite from WFH and COVID in general. I'm hearing that they will likely limit season ticket sales, so if you were considering one for this season, I would suggest getting on that. Both @MassNerdand I have groups that you can take advantage of, so feel free to DM either of us for info. I'll give preference to @MassNerd as he has been doing this for the forum longer than I. I believe his group name is "Cennedy". I'm really looking forward to this seas
  5. I like the new look... clean and nice use of fonts! Thanks for all your hard work and dark theme is a huge plus for me! Really appreciate all your effort!
  6. After a lengthy delay to my season start due to a broken heel, made it out to wachusett for day one on Saturday. Good coverage given the weather...felt like spring skiing almost. It's amazing how much snow they are able to make.
  7. Got this from Win today, amazing how much consolidation is happening in the ski industry. Dear Sugarbush Community, For me, today is a bit like walking my daughter down the aisle at her wedding. I have tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat knowing that I am about to give away someone I have raised and loved. Looking down the aisle, however, I am delighted to see someone waiting who will also love, respect, and care for her as I have done. While things will not be the same, I am excited about this next stage of our lives. And, I am co
  8. https://bangordailynews.com/2019/11/08/news/lewiston-auburn/here-are-the-plans-for-long-closed-saddleback-ski-area/ Not sure what this means but very encouraging. Would love to get to ski saddleback again!
  9. https://www.wachusett.com/The-Mountain/Media-Center/Web-Cams.aspx Guns are on! Target opening the 15th!
  10. Looking good for the guns to start blasting across new England this week
  11. Like skiing on a glacier...corn it was not
  12. Well wachusett had a last hurrah yesterday...can't say the snow was very good (basically skiing on a block of ice) but made it out with my son for the final turns of the season. Fun nevertheless! Good turnout all things considered, probably a hundred or so people showed up! Great season at the wa overall. Look forward to next season.
  13. Looking to be a great event with great skiing! Can't make it but have fun!
  14. Tuned b8 Audi A4 avant...these are my second set of PSS. I love them and really they can't be beat for grip and on the wet. I feel like moving from Michelin would be a compromise but I don't track it anymore so not sure a uhp summer is really needed; then again, tires are where I usually don't make compromises given how critical they are from a safety perspective.
  15. What do you roll on in the summer? My current Michelin PSS are at the end of their lives. The PS4S seems like the logical replacement but would like to research other options. Any suggestions?
  16. Magic was pretty sweet yesterday. First time there and really enjoyed it. They probably had 10" of nice soft pow over a pretty thin base. No wind at all. The morning was pretty incredible, but by afternoon there were some bare spots showing here and there. Mountain was almost 100% open with the exception of a couple of trails. Really cool place that I'll have to get back to. Loved the vibe and terrain! Goniff Glade was probably my pick of the day.
  17. +1 on this info...I'm making a game time decision by the time I reach 93/89 but this intel would be very helpful.
  18. Saturday: magic Sunday: Wachusett - my daughter will be skiing with Elsa.
  19. Pretty cool video. Got me thinking, the east seems to be often overlooked in ski media related to tree skiing. I think tree skiing in the east, is some of the funnest and most challenging skiing I've done. The tight lines are pretty unique here and I really like that challenge. On a pow day eastern trees are pretty much at the top of my list of places I'd want to be. What is your opinion, do you prefer our trees or those elsewhere?
  20. Went Thurs night and Sun morning. Mountain is 100% and skiing great. Solid base, great soft snow, can't really ask for more from the Wa.
  21. I've found the paul lorenz instruction videos to be quite good: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCuI6MgYP-AHJ1FJLq38cVuw Elate media has tons of videos (some better than others) across a wide range of topics: https://www.youtube.com/user/elatemedia PSIA and CSIA has a bunch as well: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheSnowPros https://www.youtube.com/user/CSIAAMSC/videos Although nearly a decade old, Chuck Martin's mogul videos have some good core technique overviews: https://www.youtube.com/user/utubecmartin/videos Jf Beauli
  22. yeah, surprisingly soft..much better than i expected. wasnt in NH so cant compare though.
  23. Sugarbush skied surprisingly well yesterday. 1-3" over boilerplate on the groomed trails. everything was open. Castlerock was nice in the morning as the sun hit it and softened things up a bit. Middle Earth was probably in the worst shape, lift line close behind with a few bare spots on both and some blue ice. Pick of the day was paradise and the woods to the skier's left.
  24. OK biting the bullet: Sat - Sugarbush Sun - maybe wachusett for some family skiing
