    How to Ski videos

    Love this woman! She’s a race coach who seems to do mostly U10 videos. I’ve found race training videos especially helpful in my own skiing, starting with the alpine drill videos put out by Burke Mountain Academy, narrated by Mikaela: http://burkemtnacademy.org/skiing/alpine-instructional-videos/

    I use some of Elate’s ideas teaching beginners. I like their progression to parallel. JF is great, though his explanations can be arcane. I like Reilly McGlashan, too — one of my favorite skiers. The Project series (Kitzteinhorn, Hintertux, Zillertal), which is available for sale on Vimeo, is terrific: Beaulieu, McGlashan, Lorenz, and Ballou, among others.

    Hard to argue with that list.

    Speaking of haze, Treehouse Sssappp, a grapefruit bomb with a smooth, pleasant mouthfeel.

    I am going to do this! (After we move.)

    Celebrating the first day of instructor training, this very nice IIPA from Foley — lots of fruit and flowers in the mid-palate. Some prefer it to Alchemist IPAs, but I’m a big fan of the sinsemilla hoppiness of those beers.

    Another from CBC — pretty lush. 😎

    We didn’t have time to diverge up to Alchemist, so we stopped at the CBC in Waterbury. This austere little Farnum SIPA is dry and grapefruity (Vic Secret, Citra, & Galaxy), a clean and refreshing ale.
  9. It's a tiny hill, and it's been hanging on by the fingernails for a number of years. My guess (just hearing this news) is lift issues — they've had severe problems. I quit going there long ago, but mainly because at best the runs are 30 seconds long.

    Thanks. Selling comes first. We’re just moving to a familiar place, the old lake place, with a new house. (It has a roof, finally.)

    The sun’s over the yardarm, so it’s time for this, Maine Beer’s Another One IPA. Austere, lots of biting hops, restrained malt, a model of the hoppy end of the spectrum, and I like it. Some won’t, I know. Also, we’re selling the house — this is a reward for all the painting, cleaning, and polishing that happened before the open house today. (Remind me never to sell another house.)

    I've had that and liked it quite a bit. No weird bitter taste, though. Bad batch, maybe?
  13. I'm sure you're right. It's just I doubt they count on Sunapee (or Afton Alps, etc.) to generate tons of revenue. On the other hand, Sunapee does get a lot of north-of-Boston traffic.
  14. I’d think, of these purchases, Sunapee is of the least interest to Vail. They’ll do what they need to do, but Okemo and Crested Butte are where they expect to make money. Just a guess.
