  1. Wildcat Mountain AMA

    There are often spring days that attract thousands of skiers to Tuckerman Ravine where the Cat seems pretty quiet. Ever thought about a cross Pinkham partnership? Have the caretakers at Hojos hand out $30 spring ticket coupons for the Cat. It might convince some of the many who make the pilgrimage to ski Tucks to spend an extra night in the valley and ski Wildcat the next day Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  2. Wildcat Mountain AMA

    Has consideration ever been given to lift serviced Mountain biking in the summer? I don't ride, but I imagine those that do would really dig ripping down Wildcat with the views of Washington across the street like us skiers do in Winter Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  3. Ryan's Beer Thread

    I picked up a six pack of Rogue Six Hop IPA today. I've been basically avoiding buying anything from large breweries and staying within my local radius for awhile, but figured I'd give a west coast beer a try. Just ok Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Xwhaler, I think you meant Cheetah. That was the trail with busted snowmaking last year Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  5. Attitash 17-18 Season Thread

    Yep Replace the triple and groom significantly less terrain and Attitash would really shine. Even during a good snow year like last year, they still groomed way too much. Very underrated terrain for its pitch and character Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

    Who's palms need greasing at the Frorest Service to get some Upper Mountain glades thinned out. Massive acreage between Lynx and Polecat or upper Wildcat and Catapult that both would be great. They are tight, soft woods forests, but Cannon has the same thing above 3K feet and put in some awesome glades. Just seems strange that virtually all ski areas in New England have upper mountain glades except the Cat and that's true of many places that are on Forest service land.

  7. Thanksgiving Weekend roll-call

    Wildcat Saturday is likely it Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  8. Boots: What to look at?

    Still a bit inconvenient to Boston and it's been many years since I've been, but Strands in Worcester always had a great reputation. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  9. Boots: What to look at?

    I forget the list price. Either $50 or $75. He ran a special in September for $25
  10. Boots: What to look at?

    Richelson's is in Plymouth, NH. They will spend about an hour doing an entire evaluation of your foot. They then will give you a list of about ten boots that are best matched to your anatomy, ability and desired performance. You buy the boots wherever you want and bring them back to the shop to have them dial in the fit. I got custom footbeds made from them this fall. I justified the additional expense because out of box foot beds only last 75ish days before they breakdown. A custom footbed can last as long as the shells of a set of boots.

    If you don't mind dropping the coin, I recommend Richelsons foot/boot evaluation process. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  12. Wildcat 17-18 Season Thread

    Agreed. Upper Lynx will get beat to crap in a hurry in the S turns this weekend. Having Upper Catapult will help slow that process. Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  13. Wildcat - Sat., Nov 18, 2017

    Today delivered. When we arrived the rain was pretty deflating to the first day of the season excitement. Xwhaler and I decided to eat some breakfast in hopes of the rain passing. It didn't, so we said screw it. Steady rain, but great soft snow the first couple of runs. It let up for the third run then kicked up again on the fourth. Went in to meet Weatherman and Frapcrap for a three beer lunch. Rain stopped after that. Temps dropped quite a bit and the snow firmed up, but it was still great skiing for November. Ripped another four runs and by then Lynx had done my legs in. Great first day all around Sent from my [device_name] using http://Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
