  1. I'd go one step further. They don't want to run hotels. They dumped the one at Attitash for this very reason. Corporate management is used to running tiny hills in the midwest.
  2. I have really mixed emotions. It'd be better for me personally, but they'd just run it into the ground like they did Attitash.
  3. A fire destroyed part of the mountain ops building at Mt Snow on Tuesday night.
  4. Stenger was officially fired -- and one of four people charged criminally. I'm surprised that it took so long to get criminal charges filed.
  5. That porn stache really is growing in!
  6. Did anyone make it out last weekend? I'm curious how it held up.
  7. I just tried Tuckerman's new summer seasonal brew -- a pilsner. Quite tasty.
  8. Often times we buy them. Ski clubs especially do bulk ticket buys.
  9. Yes, I was the one who suggested that cover. I have one and love it. Indeed not cheap, but worth it.
  10. There are some lessons here. I have a bluebird day jacket, and a powder day jacket. Only use the good gear when you need it. And I always have a spare new garment in the duffel bag in the truck to break out for powder days when it is needed. I wash with the unicorn jizz every month or so. No, it never gets it back to where it was. But yet it does clean it. The biggest threat to the jacket is the action of the washing machine itself. Agitators suck. As does the spin cycle on the high-efficiency machines. Your best bet is the high-efficiency machine with an outerwear (low speed spin) for exactly this purpose. Wash in waterproofing helps, but only goes so far.
  11. I'm still on the fence as the whether it is worth going to Jay. Getting late to decide too.
  12. I regret that I have to share this and only found out after renewing my pass. I would have thought twice. Hat tip to @deadheadskier for sharing. From the VT Digger:
  13. I'm watching Wildcat melt out on the web cam. This hurts.
  14. The season started as well as I could ever hope. Wildcat top-to-bottom nearly 100% skiable on October 27. And they stayed open for the season (at least weekends) from that point forward. Jay Peak was stellar in mid-December for my annual trip. There was crazy deep snow in St Anton for my trip. Whistler was a mixed bag (as it often is), but I'll take it. The Mount Washington Valley had about as much snow as I have ever seen there. 100% open lasted until the end. What was the season missing? There were no real day trip mid-week powder days at Crotched or Ragged. At this late April warm spell is bad. Sad!
