  1. This is firmly in the "We will charter a car for you or drive you home ourselves" territory. Hopefully.

    Introducing "Chasing Snow"

    This is awesome and I like the per event idea. I love looking at these charts but I have no idea what they are saying. With some effort and studying could I become of a novice at reading NOAA charts and see if snow is coming? I have an engineering background and I think I could give a crash course in some areas to most people. Is that feasible with weather?

    1/7 - 1/9 - Storm

    Try calling Strand's in Worcester. They carry a lot of Elan. They might even call their rep and find you a pair.

    Attitash triple

    Awesome idea. December 17 would become Saint Squirrel day. I would show up to celebrate that.

    My money is on increasing "trail count".

    2018 MTB Log

    For the mountain bikers, this backcountry blog that I follow posted a cool trip report of a MA/NH ride. http://nebackcountry.blogspot.com/2018/12/singletrack-mining-in-southern-new.html

    Crotched 12.26

    I live 90 minutes from Crotched and I have a Peak Pass. Also, I live 20 minutes from Wachusett. Is it worth me driving to Crotched for mid-week skiing or am I looking at Wachusett a little further north? Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports

    Narrowing the quiver

    Weatherman, there is a good chance I don't make the ACE meeting this week. If you were saving the Liberty Sequence skis for me to check them out, thank you and please don't any longer. MassNerd mentioned he was interested in them, too.

    I like the sound of the Liberty Sequence and will use them in the trees like you and also bumps at Wildcat. I am trying to be at the ACE meeting in a few weeks. Can I check them out then or are you unloading them before that?

    Narrowing the quiver

    sigh... I should do the same, but I am mildly interested (trying to resist the urge). Are you selling them with bindings? Are the edges ok? I don't care about base scratches/gouges.

    Tires - what are you rolling on??

    Winter vs All Season is an old debate that relies on personal preference. Yes, Winter tires will do better. Yes you can get by on All Seasons by leaving plenty of room in front and driving slow, which should be done anyway. For several years I made it to Wildcat and back in a rear wheel drive Infiniti G35 with All Seasons. I did keep a metal shovel in the trunk because once plowed in I was screwed. So the debate essentially boils down to saving money, time, and potentially someone saying "I told ya so" with All Seasons vs increased safety with Winters.

    This summer I dropped the Dueler for Cooper AT3 4S. Pretty sweet so far and good price.
  15. How close is your friend to Strand's in Worcester? They have a used room and now through December is prime time for used skis to be coming in. They also have brand new leftover skis from years past on the rack for good prices.
