  1. Thursday: L'Alpe d'Couch Friday: Couch Valley Saturday: Couch Peaks Sunday: Mount Couch Between the weather and vacation crowds, I'm sitting out this weekend.
  2. Got in about seven runs this morning at the mighty Wa. Arrived at about 8:45 and ended up parked in row 10 or 11 of the main lot. The line to pick up pre-purchased lift tickets took close to a half hour to get through, and it was the most crowded, on top of other people experience of the day. (This was my biggest complaint.) There were A LOT of people there this morning... I should have expected it, being a Friday after the first big storm of the year, but it was quite a bit. Their Achilles heel seems to be lift capacity at the moment, in part thanks to running at about half - 3
  3. I think I might have actually rode up the summit lift with you on my first lift ride. I didn't think to ask if you were the same person. I was the tall guy on Blizzard Brahmas in a blue jacket...

  5. Heading out tomorrow to Wa for the morning session. I will try to post an update.
  6. I've been using Alpine Replay / Trace for a long time. Sad it's gone, but I had a feeling that day was coming. I think I am going to be trying to use my Garmin watch as my principal tracker this year. Happy to connect with anyone on the Garmin platform who is interested. -w
  7. Kicking of my season Friday morning at the mighty Wa. Looking forward to getting out there. -w
  8. I hope to get more days this year than last (should be able to beat the four from last year). I expect to ski almost zero weekend days. I expect on-mountain condo values across the northeast to continue to increase, and I suspect that you'll see more developments announced over the next couple of years. As someone else commented above, I bet there are many nervous folks within the walls of Vail Resorts, and I'm thinking it might be time for me to dump the handful of shares that I own.
  9. 5-10% of vaccinated people will get infected, but: A: The Moderna vaccine, in particular, has seemingly had benefits even for those who do get infected. Moderna said that no one who received the vaccine in their study had a serious case of coronavirus, so if vaccinated people who do get infected get a milder illness, that's still a win... B: the fact that 90-95% of vaccinated people WON'T get infected will drive Rt way down... And then that 5-10% of vulnerable folks have much less of a chance of being exposed to the virus in the first place.
  10. Jay Peak just announced as officially on IndyPass for this year. Hope I get a chance to get up there.
  11. So, update to this: I decided to pick up an Indy Pass as well. They have a pretty generous credit plan if I don't use it much: Additionally, there was a $20 insurance option where you can get a full refund if you don't use it at all, so I bit on that as well. I figure with this even if I have to write off VT day trips entirely, I still have some good MA / NH options, and if it doesn't work out for me, I can just punt on it for a net loss of $20... which I'm not too concerned about.
  12. This is good info. I will be watching things closely as the season unfolds. If I ended up wasting $90, that'd be a low water mark for me over the past few years of pass purchases, so I'm not too worried about it.
  13. I had been buying the Ikon / Max for the past several years. Punted on both of those for this year, as I won't be travelling enough to get my money out of it. I almost didn't pull the trigger on the Ikon for 2019/2020, and it turns out, I shouldn't have. I used three days before the season ground to a halt. For this upcoming season I purchased the Maine Four day pass offered by Boyne which is good for 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 (four days total). I think I'm going to snag a K express card... For $90, it's not breaking the bank, and gives me a decent discount option at a mountain I
