  1. I planned to do a couple of these but finally realized that it was never going to happen. 17 pair of old high end/racing skis ( mostly Olin and rossignol) went in the driveway dumpster a couple years ago! well done, beaut!
  2. Sadly this thread got no traction in 18/19. I kinda forgot about it too. We’ll try better next year. Slim pickings for me anyway this season 14 days. Almost all good days tho many turns with the usual Wa friendly crew. Time for golf and tennis and paddling around local RI surf spots soon. Y’all have a great off season!
  3. Was going to head up tomorrow (90mile drive for me) and just heard Worcester Public schools got called......😏 See you Thursday instead
  4. waiting on our first Tenney trip report......
  5. I highly doubt Wa will stiff their loyal holders of bronze pass by not being open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Would be extremely bad form. Every expectation I'll be heading up on a chair Monday around 0900
  6. quite disappointed I missed out on this.... asleep at the wheel as usual for me. fully expect I'll be clicking in on next Monday, they were cranking last night, see the Wachusett web ca m for results. go wa go get it done.....monsoon tomorrow then should go nonstop snowmaking from midnight Tuesday until mid morning Thursday!
  7. Hope to catch up with you on the hill @MadRussian !!! Long range forecast looking better tho another monsoon for Tuesday.... still hoping they beat the announced opening day tho sadly November 12, 2017 opening will not be duplicated.
  8. Well I got my season pass! Just waiting for some snowmaking temps in central Mass to get the party started! Who's got 2018/2019 skiing in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts planned? Get this party started!
  9. PSA Season pass at Wa goes up $100 after tomorrow. I called, the website was a bit sluggish. Gave old pass number located on bottom and refreshed for 18/19 Just a FYI, maybe saving you 100 bucks....
  10. Yawgoo Valley is 245 (315 top base 70) Nelsap Pinetop I believe was 350 and a far superior hill but Yawgoo survives due to proximity to URI and easy access off RI Route 2.
  11. B East/ Catamount, Black Mtn, King Pine, Butternut, Yawgoo Valley are a few more that quickly come to mind. If you’ve got skiing kids King Pine is fabulous.....and show some linked shortswing turns down Pitch Pine and you’ve got my attention. This thread last few posts reinforces my “I ain’t payin’ Vail a nickel “ attitude.
  12. I will continue to support our independent NE ski hills......for as long as they exist. Y’all can do what you want. Suggest you consider doing the same.
  13. Yep, long blue square groomers. Pair of GS Racetigers Lotsa laps, high speed quad. Doable. Gotta really put the hammer down on fast, bluebird days. Go get it @Weatherman !! ?⛷?
  14. 21 goal was 30 life got in the way, but nearly all were pretty epic! Pretty pleased to still be skiing Ok as an old dawg!
  15. Patiently browsing and bookmarking eBay can often snag a unused or NOS factory liner for ski boots if a normal size and common model. The zipfit buyer will usually try and recoup some cost by flipping a unused or barely used factory liner. I’ve scored using this strategy multiple times. Good luck!
  16. Agree @thesnowway Gonna need that night skiing if much hope of attracting college students. Hopefully targeting local public school for programs. A good terrain park with plenty of hits is essential for sure. I have always thought it a risky play to reopen Tenney. Wishing them success - I hope to support them with a visit or two. @thesnowway keep us posted on what you hear please.
  17. My kid went to PSU, did Cannon with bus ride from campus for $8. Tenney was still a pipe dream but I believe it previously had a long history with PSU race team. @rivercoil knows the history, dunno if he posts here yet...... Tenney back in biz is excellent.
  18. Anybody know if they have any relationship planned with Plymouth State for next season? Is Rivercoil signed up here yet?
  19. leave me alone on the chairlift....I need my nap time.
  20. Heard today at Wa that this is the final week for weekday skiing. Great likely final day today for me. Still midwinter conditions. Get out there tomorrow should still be good tho I’m confident today was pick of the week - only open til 8 tonight. Y’all have a great summer! Golf, tennis, lawn care and cruisin in my Mustang await!!! Hope this thread and website gets more buzz next season!!
  21. Yeah super excited! Prob back at it again at least twice next week! See you again soon I hope, sublime skiing right now. Had at least 5 runs where I was the only skier on the hill between 9-10am really got to turn those Tigers loose!!!
  22. Fabulous Friday morning blazing down Wa groomers on my Racetiger FIS GS boards. Conditions were perfection, rarely seen around these parts... y’all need to go get some.....
  23. Looks like I’m the only one playing in this thread? In the spirit of public service even tho it appears nobody is reading it anymore here’s a Wa update..... Just returning home from 3 nonstop hours of perfect buttery groomer zoomer skiing at Wachusett with a whole cast of equally enthusiastic ski friends. midwinter perfection. To think a couple weeks ago I thought season was nearly done. Nope, today’s Wa was WOW!!!!! Looking like it is about to get Epic!! Gotta find a way to squeeze in some more skiing in between spurts of NCAA March Madness viewing! Go get some!!!!!
