  1. This is interesting. What drove Boyne's decision here?
  2. I mean the point of the name change would hopefully be to change behavior to stop mocking Native Americans. Thus, it'd be kind of silly to change the name to something and still have the fans do the same behavior. If you're going to do something, don't do it halfway. I personally would rather see it stay the same or changed to something that would stop all the behavior that some view as offensive. Otherwise this conversation just continues endlessly. A key example is the Cleveland Indians eliminating the logo but keeping the name a few years ago. People are still angry on both sides! I'd
  3. The number of stories of absolute customer service fails regarding opening next year and the people who didn't use their passes a single day this year are really upsetting. Jay Peak is doing it right.
  4. Interesting move. How do you think he'll do? Sunday River is infinitely more complex from a day to day operation perspective, but he does a great job with Wildcat.
  5. The steepest on trail stuff at Attitash tops Bretton Woods too (at least in my somewhat limited knowledge of BW). Some nice glades could be cut from the summit also. Was there ever a full blown permit for Stony Brook or was this all just a dream that could be killed via any number of environmental problems too?
  6. So you rented a car and are staying at a hotel a few minutes drive from the resort it sounds like? How do you like that? I know Valle Nevado at least has some on mountain hotels, but I imagine with a car it isn't super worth it?
  7. We've been saying this for awhile now though. The WMSP hasn't looked like a good deal, maybe ever, but especially since Peaks. It held up through MAX and I bet it will hold up through Epic now too. I feel like people are going to spend about the same amount of money on a season pass. The niche that buys Jay/Burke and the WMSP aren't really swayed by cheaper or similarly priced "better" offerings. That is my guess at least. They are going to ski Jay, or they are going to ski WV/BW/Cannon. $1000 is "reasonable" thinking about just the history of that pass and those mountains; what is happenin
  8. I feel like he's normally accused of wishcasting all the time. I certainly don't think of him as conservative in his forecasts.
  9. What are your thoughts on the what and where for this weekend's storm?
  10. I by and large agree with you, which sucks. What frustrates me about Attitash is it is really close to being awesome. If they left either Tim's or Idiot's ungroomed and had a few glades off the summit, Attitash Peak with a HSQ would be one of the best trail pods in NH IMO. It has fairly sustained steep pitch for a couple hundred vertical, not something many other places in NH can say. But Attitash as is would not suddenly grab a bunch of skiers with a summit HSQ. advanced/experts would still go to Cannon/Wildcat in the state and families can't really ski the summit terrain so they would c
  11. I do give them massive kudos for being upfront about this. I will be seriously reevaluating getting a Peaks pass next year. While I ski Wildcat a bunch, I got very little value out of Crotched and Attitash this year and Wildcat had decent sized lines mid-season (potentially driven there because of Attitash problems). Plus, in a poor snow year, January groomers at Attitash give a lot of value to the Peaks pass but not if there is no summit access. I don't believe the lift will be fine next year, 2/3rds of it replaced or not. Wildcat is fantastic when there's snow, when there isn't it strug
  12. Super frustrating for sure. Hope it doesn't impact the lift closing schedule in the weeks beforehand too. Crossbow is my favorite cut trail on Barker. That's super upsetting. Maybe it's an earlier closing date because they're replacing Barker and therefore need to close all those trails. I'd give that a 3% chance of happening though... They obviously could still run Locke instead of Barker anyway.
  13. Has Sunday River announced anything else yet? Or has anything else been rumored that you've heard of for this year beyond what is in their 5 year wish list (west side snowmaking pump, Barker replacement).
  14. I'll have done just one day at Attitash (in December... where I spent the morning at Wildcat) this year as a result of this triple nonsense. While I still have a pass, I typically bring 2+ people with me on my Wildcat/Attitash days who buy tickets. I'm sure I'm not alone. This has gotta be hurting them a lot.
  15. The Loon improvements were already stated elsewhere, but figured we should have a general thread for changes (good or bad) this off-season. I've only seen Loon announce so far recently (Okemo announced awhile ago). https://www.loonmtn.com/press-releases/new-for-2019/20 DH Biking, snowmaking improvements (nothing substantial IMO), and the all season access pass). https://www.okemo.com/press-room/vail-announces-okemo-upgrades/ New restaurant, other facelift upgrades.
