  1. Here is Valle Nevado Valle Nevado Statement - COVID-19 To those who have followed us for weeks, We hope that you and your families are well, that you continue to take care of yourself and your loved ones. June is gone, but it leaves us a lot of snow (almost 1.5 meters accumulated) and more desire to look at the mountain, but from the city. Because we are still closed, in quarantine and following the instructions of the authority to be able to collaborate with the health crisis. The entire Valle team has continued working to be prepared - if authority and sanitary conditions allow it
  2. We were planning to go to Crested Butte the very first weekend after they were all shut down. Also had flights purchased to go ski Park City. Got a voucher for a later day from the airline. We also had bought tickets to fly to LA to stay with our son and catch an XFL game everything was refunded for that trip. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app

  4. Yup A Basin allowed it for a couple days and they shut it down - to many people showed up. After that everyone flocked to Loveland Pass where the Governor shut that down. However, this weekend an experienced snowboarder very familiar with Loveland Pass violates the ban and unfortunately got severely injured. Rescue had to get him and was taken the remainder of the way down on a toboggan. Also a snowmobiler trigger an avalanche who needed to be rescued.

  5. My wife and I thought about Loveland Pass because two days prior to that Video it snowed 10+ inches in the mountains. Then we thought about it for a second - knowing everybody and their brother were going to be there. The distance some had to walk is nuts.

  7. Who in their right mind would think that ok to attempt? Sucks to have ended that way but ..... Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  8. The real question should be which mountains are fairly challenging that do not make snow or have limited snowmaking. There probably aren’t many. MRG stands out and has really good terrain. Others? Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  9. Schoolmarm to paymaster running Montezuma lift. Need to take gondola up and then lap Montezuma then gondola back down. On another note, A Basin was good today for WROD got our mugs too. It is clear epic is not there anymore it was ski on ski off in the morning. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  10. Plus while Vail has Stowe it also has Okemo so Jay Peak might be a nice Canadian draw for Vail Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  11. Never understood Vail’s pricing! I can get the Epic Veterans Pass for $529. Also. You can get the Epic Local Pass for $110 more than the 6 flex pass. I am sure they set it up that way to get people to buy full passes. We are getting confused - too many pass products to decide on. A Basin Veterans Pass is $199 which we will definitely get. Liberty Pass for Veterans is $269 for Keystone. Epic Veterans Pass at $529 is pretty sweet too but no A Basin which for us is key to a long season and no partner resorts, just Vail owned. Epic Local is $699. Which gives us a Japan trip option in
  12. Well for us the season has been really good. The number of days are not quite as high as we would have liked but non skiing vacations killed about four weekends. We got a ton of snow in Colorado and conditions were great all season. We got to ski powder with 900 acres open on October 13th at Wolf Creek which was a first for us since most early openings are WROD. As it stands we will probably make it to the third weekend in June and possibly later. We also plan to hike St Mary’s glacier and get turns in July so our story still unfolds.

  13. I have Columbia jacket and pants and a north face packable that I wear on cold days under my jacket. I just throw it in the laundry with regular detergent. Washed 3 times this season and had them for 2 years. We buy every 3-4 years. Never really thought about washing gear much, clearly! Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  14. That run is straight and pretty wide with de ent pitch. I think people get too confident. Any one of us could catch an edge or scrape out etc and have bad results. That must have been scary while sliding down. What were conditions like that day? Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  15. Better yet who's tapping into your helmet. https://threatpost.com/smart-ski-helmet-headphone-flaws-leak-personal-gps-data/142456/ Nothing is safe anymore. Sent from my SM-G930V using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
