  1. This pic on the ridge all the way out to what ends with Muleskinner is one of the favorite skates in all of my ski career You get a look down some steep groomers, followed by ungroomed steeps, followed by Casablanca Glades 1-4...finally ending with Muleskinner just a special experience with so many options along the way
  2. As some on here know I have a very fond spot in my heart for Saddleback. My wife and I were passholders there for 2 yrs while in grad school (pre kids) and we had a seasonal cabin on Rangeley Lake. Every wknd we would drive up from Seacoast NH for 2-3 days of skiing. It's a long haul up there but no place in New England has ever captured me the way Saddleback and the Rangeley Lakes region has. We have since done summer trips up there since the mtn closed but of course we want the mtn back. It's been sad/frustrating watching a glorious big mtn sit idle since April of 2015 but finally it seems there is hope to bring this true gem back to life. Today at 3pm they finally launched their website and season passes are now live to process! I look at this as a small but important step that hopefully gives us hope we can make lift served skiing there again soon. http://www.saddlebackmaine.com/ Here are some of my personal photos of 'the Back that try and capture what it is all about but like most special places you can't capture it entirely in photos... Can't wait to be making turns there again!

  8. Start my vacation this wknd (staying in Lincoln NH as a home base and hoping to get out 5/6 of 8 days) Playing the entire wk by yr as snow is melting fast and who know if ski mtns will be spinning lifts with all the craziness going on around us Tentative wknd plans for now Saturday: Tenney (if they can patch some snow together, have pre paid vouchers so would like to try and use them...haven't been to Tenney since 2007) Sunday: Burke or Bretton Woods Monday: Waterville Valley Remainder of week: TBD based on conditions
  9. Upper Face. Suicide 6 Sent from my moto g(6) using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  10. Nice low key morning at Suicide 6 for the family $5 tickets thru Ace Ski Club was a no brainer Our 2nd visit here but like last March not much open. I'm sorta surprised a smaller hill with the apparent $$ resources that S6 has (owned by Woodstock Inn/Resort) would not have closer to 100% snowmaking The terrain we have skied in our 2 Vista has been fun but you can tell it's a rowdy little hill at 100% open. The tree skiing for a 650 vert hill looks pretty expansive. They run a mtn biking operation in the summer so the woods are well maintained Today was a mix of firm groomers and then by noon when we left it was starting to corn up It reminds me of a well funded version of Whaleback.... similar terrain feel with similar low snowmaking Both hills are steep with no run out so they make the absolute most of their limited vertical! /natural Sent from my moto g(6) using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  11. Magic Saturday 3/7 Pretty amazing so far! 2" up top but drifted around and was boot top in spots Skiing woods with the boys. Bit sporty underfoot of course but given this season and recent wx it's fairly remarkable how good it is here More pics later Sent from my moto g(6) using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  12. Gunstock $519 Adult I wonder how Gunstock does with pass sales when Ragged early buy will be $299 and you can get Northeast Pass (to include Sunapee and many others) for $599 Probably a captive audience with those second homeowners on the lake Sent from my moto g(6) using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
