  1. I think a LOT of the BW crowd are people without passes. They have done a great job increasing traffic with their "seasonal rental program" with local ski shops. Kids rent skis for the season (<$150) and it comes with a free BW pass. Parents then do trips up there a few weekends/year. Based on the crowds there on the weekends and holiday weeks, I don't see there being an incentive to participate in a bigger collective. My family does the WMSP because we have a place in Lisbon and Cannon conditions can sometimes suck (ice, wind, etc), so having BW as an option is worth the extra $300. I also suck in the trees so I like the BW glades ☺️
  2. We have a place in Lisbon, which is a 2 1/4 hour drive from home on Friday night. Then we drive about an hour from there to Wildcat on Saturday. And since we don't have Peak passes, it's $156 for our family of 5 to ski (little one is still free). I'm leaning toward no, as we have stuff we could (and probably should) do at home, but I really want 1 more day of skiing!
  3. But it's going to be raining and windy...are they really going to open/run? And even if they do, do I want to go?
  4. My favorite are Haze and Green. The husband insisted we spend a kid-free morning after a wedding waiting in line for beer. It's good beer, but I'm not sure it's worth the effort...
  5. Sat: Cannon or Bretton Woods (wind dependent) Sun: Cannon Monday: Likely BW as I'll be solo with all 3 kids and the bigger ones can have more freedom without an adult at BW (less dangerous stuff to get hurt on)
  6. Cannon was a mess on Saturday, which was only made worse by unusually large crowds (or maybe that was just a result of the upper mountain being closed). We left at lunch. Sunday it skied like a totally different mountain. The snow was great, and there was even a little powder on the upper mountain. Let’s hope it stays like that for a few more weeks!

  7. But at least there is still summit access...they've been running the tram in response.
  8. I'd guess Bretton Woods will be completing the Gondola (that was supposed to be in this winter) and building out the new summit lodge. What I really wish they'd do is put in another HSQ to summit of Mt. Stickney and add more trails over there!
  9. Took the 8 and 10-year-olds down the snow fields on Saturday. I’m a big wuss and it was the steepest thing I’d ever skied, but we all had fun and made it down in 1 piece [emoji1787]! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Awesome! Thanks for feedback. The walk won’t phase him...he regularly hikes the saddle at Cannon and even hiked Lafayette last week. Maybe we’ll see you there tomorrow. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. I saw they're opening the backside snow fields at Sugarloaf. How intense are they? The 10-year-old is always wanting to ski the hardest thing he can, and so far he's been able to handle it all (DJ's and Kinsman at Cannon, Left Gully on Tucks, etc.). How do the snow fields compare?
