    Attitash triple

    If I gave a squirrels butt about attitash I'd have been verrry frustrated with that "light at the end of the tunnel" headline because my first reaction was, ooooh high speed lift?!?! Oh nope. I do feel bad for attitash fans. I did a day there about 5 years ago and while it was uncrowded and the lift ran fine, the long ride got old pretty quickly.

    JetBlue Boston->Steamboat is a game changer

    I agree this flight is a game changer for steamboat, but I always thought Summit Co was easily accessible too. Early evening fly out of Boston on a weeknight direct to Denver, pick up rental car (I've never found DIA to be a shitshow), drive up to where I'm skiing, check-in around midnight, go-to sleep. Ski any number of days. On the last day change after skiing, drive back to DIA, do some quick repacking before returning the car. Nighttime check in for red-eye back to Boston. Land, get bags, drive home, shower, go to work. I would get 4 days skiing in Summit Co using only 2 vacation days with that itenerary.

    Wachusett Conditions and get togethers

    Ha! I agree that Wawa in the last couple hours of the day especially a weekday is a great place to get some quick laps, but I'm not exactly worried about that "secret" getting out! [emoji16]

    Roll Call December 1-2

    I'm thinking Wildcat Saturday. But also curious what's the likelihood Sunday will stay below freezing anywhere, even if only at elevation?

    10+ New Trails at K?

    Yeah but they're not on the map as far as I can tell. Hopefully they'll update it soon.

    Roll Call for 11/16 - 11/18

    Any reports from Wildcat yesterday? I was torn between there and Killington and decided to hit K since it had been a while.

    Tires - what are you rolling on??

    I ran Michelin Pilot Arctic Alpins on my Subaru WRX for the last 7 or 8 winters I had the car, and never was unable to go where I wanted to. The only time I ever got the car stuck was one time I tried just for shits to drive it through about a foot of wet snow on the unplowed top level of the parking garage at my last job. It didn't quite make it up the upramp and then got stuck trying to reverse back down and I had to dig it out to get moving.

    Snowmaking Window

    Sure, but the pillow lines on Lift Lion and Black Cat were also pretty epic once they got filled in.

    Tires - what are you rolling on??

    Oh, all weather not all season, ok sorry. From what I gather all weather tires sound like what I've known as "performance winter" tires. Winter tires that don't feel like squirmy sponges on dry roads in the winter. That's what I run. But I still run a separate wheel/tire set for summer.

    Snowmaking Window

    Paste bomb and 4 inches of sloppy sound like a good November day if it's landing on any surface that's at least marginally skiable.

    Tires - what are you rolling on??

    IMO all seasons, assuming theyre a true all season not one with heavy summer/performance bias, are fine inthe winter when they're new and have good tread depth, AND if you're not trying to drive in deep snow. But when they start wearing their usability insnow declines much faster than true winter tires. I always go with a dedicated winter set. Also why are you happy your new Volvo doesn't have TPMS sensors? I was disappointed when I learned my new Audi didn't have them.

    October 27 - Opening Day at Wildcat

    Assuming that was somewhere on Lynx, what time was that around? Lynx wasn't as good as that pic looks by afternoon when I made it there.

    2018 MTB Log

    Anyone here do the Wicked Ride yesterday? I was originally planning to but decided against due to the weather. And unrelated, but it was cool to see a few cars with bikes on the roof in the Wildcat parking lot on Saturday.
