  1. I see it for not groups too: https://wachusett.com/Tickets-Passes/Tickets-Seasonal-Passes/Season-Passes.aspx Anyone is welcome to join my GPS group 'Cennedy' btw. I sell the reward pass and split the money amongst the group passholders.
  2. PSA: Wachusett looks to be offering junior season passes this year. The gold has a very significant discount! https://www.wachusett.com/Tickets-Passes/Groups/GPS-Club.aspx I already bought next year's passes though at full price.... I'll be reaching out to see if I can get refunded the difference.

    Flat vs clipless pedals

    Another pro for clipless: In technical terrain its great to be able to lift the rear end of the bike with your legs rather than having to use the handlebar/shift weight forward method.

    Flat vs clipless pedals

    Can't argue against the increased efficiency of the clipless. Some don't like it because they can't unclip at times, but I never have a problem getting out. Still, I do have flats I switch to for very technical terrain.

    Crested Butte January 2018

    Thought I'd share this video I put together of a trip myself and two good friends took to Crested Butte back in January 2018. It was when the winter out west was off to a slow start. None of the extremes were open yet. We landed at the Gunnison regional airport in the snow. About 4 inches fell that night which made for very nice conditions over then next few days. Even without the extremes open, there was plenty of fun terrain at CB, especially the trees in the east river area. Can't wait to go back when there's more snow! Anyway, here's the vid:

    Summer photo submissions

    I wish I had an awesome MTB photo to share, but here one with lots of green you are free to use: https://flic.kr/p/xmGDvt
  9. I figure I got 9 legit uses out of the pass (counting the 5 in one day as just 1 day and a bunch of half days where I would have gotten 50% with my Wachusett pass anyway). I got the add-on only so that's <$37 a use so definitely money well spent. I'll miss it. Only the add-on makes sense for me at this stage with the family and no such deal with the other multi-passes.

    Wachusett Conditions and get togethers

    Conditions at Wawa were spectacular yesterday. I skied in the falling snow Friday afternoon and really think the conditions were better Saturday after they spread it around with the groomers. Can't believe this was April skiing! Temps were cool and the snow didn't get spring soft until 2 or 3pm.

    Wachusett Conditions and get togethers

    I talked to the woman in group sales and she said they'll be open until April 15th. They might shut down some weekdays depending on the weather. I think this will be Wachusett's longest season (if you don't count that one day in May they opened after that Snowmagedon year! November 12th-April15th.
  12. Wow, incredible trip!

    More info I've heard: Snow Masters = free skiing, no gates Gate runners = free skiing, working on general technique the first month and then 50% free ski and 50% gates after that. No formal competitions. Park Monsters = self-explanatory I didn't inquire about this one, although that's the one my son would probably choose.

    Beer cans

    Looking at larger, more metal hungry objects, I read somewhere that the average car would see a $300 increase in manufacturing cost as a result of the tariff. I presume that's for cars manufactured in the US. It would be a shame if that was motivation for car manufacturers to move car production more overseas to avoid the tariff...
