  1. Status on triple repairs ??????
  2. Burke on Saturday, one word says it all , DEEP !!!!!!
  3. Burke on Saturday was quite amazing, tons of snow and very little wind . maybe 20 Kts north west and it blew up the lift line no effects at all, Biggest crown I ever saw there, lots of tickets dangling from jackets. most people I talked to on lift are new to Burke, a very good sign. they do have some good stay and ski packages at hotel but the crowd was way more than that. Deepest skiing I have seen in New England , I felt like I was out west !!!
  4. IMO NorthConway Is a great Ski town, has a lot to offer, Its a real shame Attitash has gone downhill in recent years, I am a fan of rt 16, have driven or rode on for 56 years . I live in Newbury and its 2;05 to Attitash and 2;15 to Wildcat . Cannon is just over 2 hours also from my house , Burke is 3 hours on the 93 route
  5. To be honest the only time I was there on a day there was wind hold it was also -15 degrees F, All the time I have been there wind has not been a real issue, the chair to the top is fairly low. the exposure is bad ,but it should run up the line and not across which causes the most problems , I will know tomorrow, there is always the new Tbar????
  6. Attitash had a quote to put a new lift up the old top notch double chair line 4 or 5 years ago for 4 Mil, how foolish were they to pass on that, Peaks resort needs someone that has some vision, or gives a crap about skiing to turn the ship at Attitash. If they don't NH will need to widen 302 to handle the additional traffic to BW
  7. I am way more curious why they are not ordering a new lift ?????
  8. I am in the 84 to 88 camp as a eastern daily driver, with a 74 on hardpack groomer days, west ski is 106 , I just bought a pair of 95 's that I brought out west as a two ski quiver but with a week of daily new snow never used them.
  9. Very true !!!! I will be at JH next year , I am sure you will be there.
  10. I am buying the Ikon again this year, worked out good for me with a Alta Bird trip, Sunday river trip, big sky trip, plus an day so far at Sugarbush, have plans in April for Killington .
  11. I will be there, please pass along meal and lodging plans
  12. It was great to see you at BS, keep the pictures and stories coming of your adventures
  13. Not exactly new thinking , the MRG had 50 chairs in it in 1948, they just use that as an excuse, why would Peaks resort want to make investment at Attitash when you can buy three small hills for 78 mil ????
  14. My understanding that is Burke is not planned to go on the market until the receiver figures out how to turn a profit there. I hear that the EB-5 situation is not satisfied yet , they need to find an way to produce new jobs , they are thinking a upgraded snowmaking system with pond.
  15. Let's forget the fact that they have been putting bandaids on that lift for almost 10 years , That lift must be replaced for the area to survive. they are loosing patrons to Brenton Woods, Sunday River and even Cranmore because of that lift. people just do not want to spend 17 minutes of there life each time they ride it. I am not sure what its going to take for management to figure this out.
  16. I put new snow wax on for Wednesday ARL
  17. i know its totally different type of road , i am just speaking of the demeanor of the drivers, they know rt 16 its dangerous and drive accordingly .
  18. I drove to Burke and encountered the same , Not a fan of 93. i drive 75mph and the karmikaze drivers that are weaving thru traffic is crazy at night. hope none here have a Red VW wagon , WTF I drove Rt 16 for 45 years and never saw the crap drivers do as on RT93.
  19. . No mention of Burke, I thought last spring they were going to bundle together, I hope someone is interested ???
  20. Peaks Resort is totally tone deaf on this issue, i would love to see their 5 year plan for Attitash, beside running the place into the ground
