  1. Yes it was a funny coincidence. We were standing next to each other, each at a different window in the process of paying. I spelled the club name and she asked if I knew you and said you were her husband. I bought the Senior Gold for $389. Living :15 away I go early and late seasons, early morning on the weekends, so it's worth it.
  2. I took a multi-week course on bike maintenance years ago and switch my tuning shop over to a bike tuning shop every year. Not particularly advanced or great at it, but I get by. The key is definitely having a good repair stand to hold the bike up off the ground to work on. They make ones with legs, but I have one I bolt onto my tuning workbench, sticking out about a foot.
  3. It was a good season. I skied about a dozen times at Berkshire East and 57 at Wachusett. Once at Sunapee, once at Crotched. No Western trip alas, and wasted a lot of money on the Epic Northeast Pass. Only skied mornings, no lodges, boot up behind car, lots less vertical feet due to that and long lift lines. That said, I skied well, had a lot of fun and was fortunate to be able to do so. Glass half full for sure. Also got some uphill gear and skinned up Wachusett a handful of times early morning.
  4. I was there yesterday morning 9-11 and it was good. Too many beginners on the Blue trails though as there was no beginner terrain available. Will close out the season tomorrow at 7:30.
  5. Wachusett was horrible yesterday, I don't see them making it past Sunday of this week. In fact I didn't bother going this morning. Icy in the 50's sucks.
  6. Yes the crowds are done for the year it seems. Today was like last year, as was some of last week. I see no reason they won't make their April 4th closing date.
  7. Skiing this week and next week look really good. The week that ends with April 4th of course is unknown, but that's as far as they're selling tickets for right now. Almost 3 full weeks of skiing (at least) left. Squeeze every drop out of that grapefruit.
  8. Wachusett was fabulous today. No lines (probably due to the cold, but I think people are starting to wind down) perfect fast but grippy snow. I could arc huge turns across the bottom of Challenger and almost touch the snow with no concern of anyone being on the trail with me. Even got a couple of runs like that on Ralph's which always has people on it. Summit skied great. 7 runs in an hour. Like the good old days.
  9. I see @hrstrat57 hasn't replied to this. He's fine, yes it's COVID, long drive, etc.
  10. I was there yesterday morning 9-12. 10th is skiing very well, Smith not so much. Conifer too is good. Not sure when you started, but yes the Summit runs get scraped off fairly quickly. I usually ski about ½ dozen runs off the summit from when the lifts open and then move over. Hitchcock is definitely in great shape these days, as it usually is.
  11. I've tried to get a refund from Vail for my Epic Northeast Pass based on Massachusetts quarantine restrictions, but it doesn't fit their definition of a qualifying event.
  12. Today was day 15 for me. Skinned up Ralph's at 7:15, then skied for an hour and a half lift served. Really long lift lines for a Monday morning. I think the Holiday break is lasting two weeks this year. Was nice watching the fog lift early this morning on the way up.
  13. Nope, after skiing down from the skin up there were too many people already lined up at the lifts and the ticket window so I went home. How was it?
  14. I'll probably skin up and then ski lift served afterwards. Orangish/Red coat, Blue Stockli Edge 88 skis.
  15. No Puck it, that's not accurate information. The resorts are shut down to outside tourists, which as best as I can understand it even includes different areas of California. California’s Lake Tahoe is temporarily shutting down to outside tourists, the latest economic blow as a deadly surge in coronavirus cases is forcing millions in America’s most populous state back under lockdown restrictions.
