    Roll Call for 11/16 - 11/18

    Family ski day on Sunday at either Okemo or Stowe. It depends on whether Stowe has enough terrain open to justify the drive.
  2. It’s great that Killington makes the effort to open as early as humanly possible, but after that their early season game seems to fizzle quite a bit. I’d love to see them push to open either Cascade or Downdraft much earlier (and spin the canyon quad along with it). The t2b route through Snowdon just doesn’t make for a great “run”... (and, yes, I will acknowledge that the route through Snowdon is accessible to a broader range of skier/rider skill levels). That said, I certainly appreciate that Killington puts a product out there for us to utilize, but I’m probably more inclined to wait a bit for a better offering from another of the early season players. (As a new epic pass holder, I’m looking forward to early season at Okemo)

    Cannon Lover's Thread

    I’m not saying Jay doesn’t get a lot more snow than Cannon. It does. I’m just saying the author is overstating it at 200” more (and you then went on to cite the more accurate difference). So... thanks for “correcting” me? ?

    Cannon Lover's Thread

    I’ve never thought of Cannon as “underrated “... And not giving a mention to the snowmaking capacity is sort of a kick in the nuts. And, Jay definitely gets more snow than Cannon, but 200” inches more...? C’mon... This article is a bit of a disservice to its readers.
  5. That’s too bad. Small places like that are good for the local community.

    Manufacturer Sizes

    Similar problem here. 2 years ago I bought a Columbia jacket in large that fits well. Last year our ski team was buying new jackets. They are Columbia, not the same jacket - but damn close. I ordered large expecting a similar fit. Nope. Too damn big.
  7. Now you have to keep skiing on a regular basis so that you don’t lose the progress you’ve made on your ski legs ?
  8. Nicely done, Dave. That looks amazing! Well worth the drive and sore legs I’m sure ?
  9. I’m happy to give it a few days to let the hype settle down and then go on a weekday.

    River Recon

    I’m building a pergola on a piece of property on the Merrimack in Hooksett. I looked down at the water and saw this snapper checking things out. I was going to go down for a closer pic, but he decided to move on.

    who wants to move to VT?

    My guess is that it is more likely to appeal to younger people who aren’t rooted somewhere. At this point in my life, 10k wouldn’t compell me to move somewhere, but back in my early 20’s it might have been something to consider. (And as an aside, I wouldn’t be surprised if that is what they are hoping for since it seems like the New England states are getting “older”.
  13. It’s certainly compelling - as are several other (western) options on the epic pass.
  14. I’m a big fan of Stowe, and I’m a fan of the pass price point. Sunapee and Okemo aren’t among the most exciting resorts out there, but at 40 minutes (Sunapee) and 1.5 hours (Okemo), those are tolerable day trips (Stowe at 2.5 is on the upper end of my range - but still worth it). It is certainly interesting....
