  1. Strand's in Worcester has an attic full of them.
  2. I agree. When I saw the original video I assumed way more was CGI but after seeing this I realize way more of it was real.
  3. I'll throw in a vote for Kinco 901 gloves. Hands down the warmest, most durable glove I have ever owned and only cost $23. Going on 3 years with my current pair with no signs of quitting.
  4. Does anyone know what the turnout is for the night parties at Attitash? I like their efforts to entertain a younger crowd. As much as I enjoy skiing onto the lifts at Wildcat I like profitable mountains more. So anything they can do at Attitash/Wildcat to sell more tickets and beer is good by me.
  5. I haven't been to Attitash/Bear Peak for a few years. The routine used to be Wildcat Saturday then Attitash/Bear Peak on Sunday. Once they labeled Illusion a blue square I didn't want to be there anymore, and in my opinion led to the decline (or at least decline in my mind) of the mountain. Now you get beginners on Illusion who don't belong there, experts end up on the easier trails doing high speed flybys past other beginners, all leading to a scraped off chaos. The skier social contract is broken there. Friends with little kids just learning to ski ask me "Attitash or Wildcat". I tell them WIldcat because the beginner area is mostly separated from the main mountain. On the Attitash side you have absolute beginners on the same trail as experts. I don't think anyone is happy in that situation. I'm happier at Wildat, so I guess that's just my 2 cents.
  6. This is firmly in the "We will charter a car for you or drive you home ourselves" territory. Hopefully.
  7. 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?
  8. Try calling Strand's in Worcester. They carry a lot of Elan. They might even call their rep and find you a pair.
  9. Awesome idea. December 17 would become Saint Squirrel day. I would show up to celebrate that.
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. This is the only update I have seen: https://www.newenglandskiindustry.com/viewstory.php?storyid=737
  13. 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.
  14. 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?
