    MLK weekend snow?

    As always, great right up! Side note, with some of the discussion of site traffic, I would like to say on a personal note, this type of insight is exactly what drives me to the forum. Much appreciated comments @weatherman and all those others that are much more informed about forecast than me!

    1/7 - 1/9 - Storm

    I saw something very similar last night. There were some very aggressive forecasts for up to 13”, but those have dropped down to 3” this morning. I’ll be interested to see where we are on Monday. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports

    Tires - what are you rolling on??

    still a nube in the tire game...Alignment, is it necessary? From the store, "If you wish, based on vehicle manufacturer's recommendation of a four wheel (front & rear) alignment, Town Fair Tire will do it for $55.00."

    Tires - what are you rolling on??

    So, I’ve never bought anything other than all season tires for my 2012 civic. When going to the mountains I used to head up in my 2004 4Runner...RIP Anyway, I am debating a tire set up for the civic. Monday through Friday it will be on Boston roads and highways. But I still want to be able to take a “sick day” and make it to the mountains during a storm. Any advice is much appreciated. Winter tires? All weather? Any specific brands/reputable store?

    Tremblant

    I went last year during my girlfriends spring break. We had an absolute blast! Conditions - More than a few of the locals mentioned that it was the best week of the year. (Please forgive me on the measurements but the whole metric vs. imperial systems has my memory a little hazy). We received 8-10 inches a day and it seemed to never stop snowing. Temperature was in the high 20's (Fahrenheit). The snow was really moist and heavy, but it was still a lot of fun. Skied the north side to get away from the crowd (yes, there were crowds mid week...but more on that later). Spent some solo time skiing on the edge trail pod and really enjoyed some of the trees they had going on. What I learned - March is school break time for all the kids up in Canada. From what i was told, one week is for Quebec and the other is for Ontario. So be advised that there is the potential for a lot of families to be on the mountain. Small regrets - Missed the March dump in VT. Although we had great conditions, back home it was going absolutely off. Ask yourself why go to Tremblant? If you are want a true "skiing trip" in March, you should consider looking elsewhere. If you want a "ski vacation" full of eating, drinking, shopping and feeling like a tourist, go to Tremblant! We stayed 3 nights/3 days on the mountain. Skied 2.5 days and did a dog sled excursion. Then spent 2 nights in Montreal. The strong US Dollar is a nice little bonus on top too.

    Max Pass Thread - 2017 / 2018

    So I am traveling for work the next 2 weeks and with multiple closures upcoming, my season is effectively over. Here is a recap of my season. How'd everyone else do? Killington - 5 days: 1/15, 2/10, 2/17, 2/18, 3/11, Loon - 4 days: 11/18, 12/3, 12/17, 3/25 Tremblant - 3 days: 13-15 Mar Pico - 2 day: 12/30, 3/12 Okemo - 2 day: 12/10, 12/29 Windham - 2 day: 1/20, 1/21 Wachusett: 2 days: 1/11, Another night I didn't record the date Belleayre - 1 day: 4/8 Attitash - 1 day: 1/28, Off Max pass, but had a free lift ticket Wildcat - 1 day: 1/29, Off Max pass, but had a free lift ticket Over 23 days I got my daily lift ticket cost down to $29.57. This cost factors in discounts I receive on window tickets for being active duty military. I would have to pay $1,690.40 on window tickets vs. $680 I spent on my MAX pass to ski the same amount of days. A worthy investment IMO. It saved me $1,010 (although that analysis is not truly fair because I should be comparing a season pass product to another season pass product, but seeing those numbers still makes me feel good about laying out the early season $$$). Best Day - Day 2 of my Tremblant skiing with the significant other. We got a great day in together, but also had some much needed alone time. I skied the tree runs on the edge over and over again while she did some eating and walking around the village. Best Day runner up - 12/30 Pico: I love Pico, I didn't make it up there as much as I wanted too. However, this day the mountain was completely empty considering it was a holiday week. They opened up the outpost for time in the season on 30 Dec and ran it till 4pm (normal closing hour is usually earlier). I am sad to see the max pass go, but I think I got the most out of it. Getting 23 days while working a 9-5 is tough. I made a lot of solo trips to get my fix, while making 4 social trips. My biggest regret,s 1) not getting out West. Next year I already have a Utah trip lined up on the IKON pass to make up for that. 2) Not making it to Whiteface/Gore. Probably won't make it over there in the near future since they will not be on the IKON pass next year. Hope everyone had as great of a season as me. feel free to share.

  15. So if Pico and Killington are on a RFID card, can they program it so that IKON holders cannot use the RFID card at Pico? and that Pico passes cannot be used at Killington? Or do you think they will be separate RFID cards?
