  1. Did I mention in this thread... Moat Scottie's will be on tap at the house.
  2. We'll make sure to have a helmet available for your stay at the bar.
  3. Short fuse question: what do we want for keg beer for this weekend? I tried ordering a Tucks 50 Cent IPA. No dice.
  4. Happy Monday! So far today Wildcat has reported 5" and counting. 46 of 48 trails open. This Saturday is setting up to be a classic spring day with plenty of snow on the ground. So let's update the roll call so I can be prepare with the appropriate amount of food and beer. Who is planning to attend this weekend? For those who would like to spend the weekend, several of us will be staying at the Makusue Ski Club in North Conway. We'll largely have the house to ourselves and there is plenty of room. Lodging is $25/night. I can send you details if you're coming. Food and beer is on me. Friday evening: - arrival meet and greet - extensive keg quality testing Saturday: - Tailgate in C Lot at Wildcat - Grill will be lit around noon - roughly 4-5pm, we'll move shop back to the ski club - more grilling and keg quality testing to follow throughout the night Sunday: - wake up and more skiing
  5. I skied Whistler on Monday. Vail Resorts provided free lift tickets, lunch, ski guides, zip lining, and snowmobile rides to MTS attendees. They put on a good show.
  6. I saw a presentation by Vail Resorts last week. They were pleased to announce an Epic Day pass - 6 flexible days of skiing, $550.
  7. I met with a Peak Resorts corporate level person last week. He confirmed that there are no plans to replace the triple. And was unaware of the shirt.
  8. I have a new shirt Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  9. I brought my cooler up to the NoCo last weekend. I still need to find my folding table. I saw my tailgating grill in the shed yesterday. Full supply gathering will occur in a week and a half when I return from Whistler.

  14. Bretton Woods was better yesterday after than morning. It was firm and fast, but ungroomed was survivable though not compelling.
  15. Wildcat’s bar was excellent yesterday. I started off with a breakfast margarita followed by another and then three mugs of Switchback. Conditions were survivable but not fun. Ungroomed was an inch or two blown into shiny bumps. Bretton Woods today is fast and firm. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  16. Try doing it from the web interface rather than the app. It is much more fully featured.
  17. Shrug. Have not seen it. Is it possible you an old password store in a browser or app that is trying to refresh?
  18. My boot / glove dryer that I keep at home died last week. Fortunately I have a spares, including three that I keep at the ski club and one in my duffel bag. But before next season I'd like to replace it. Buying boot dryers at the ski shop is unreasonably expensive. They often retail for $70+. In the past I've done well buying dryers at Costco, Harbor Freight, and Ocean State Job Lot for about $30. Of those the job lot dryer was my least favorite, but all were functional. What do you use for boot dryers? Anyone built one at home? Have a lead on a place to buy the 4-post type dryers for the $30 range?
  19. Pull the trigger at $36 for sure. When I looked at group tickets last year, we weren't where we needed to be for minimum volume. I've got a meeting scheduled with someone with the power to make discount tickets happen, but it'll be a minute thing if it becomes a reality.
  20. Considering they haven't even identified the problem, you have to wonder. But honestly I don't think they'll give up on the lift for the season if they can at all help it. Closing without that lift running again would be too harmful to spring pass sales. They want to prove that lift is functional again to stop the constant bad publicity and partially mute the cries for a new lift.
