  1. I got to Wildcat at 9:38am, and the lot was long since full. Traffic was backed up 6 past the AMC center. I drove around it and headed straight to C Lot. I ended up parking on a snowbank near the garage. When I saw the GM in the lodge, he immediately asked me "Where did you park?" I told him and his reply was "fair enough". It's every man for himself on a day like this.

    I know that Stowe also filled all their parking, but that happens regularly there. I can only think of a few times that this has ever happened at Wildcat. And never by 9am. It was unreal. Fortunately the lift capacity is relatively large compared to the parking. There was never more that a couple minutes wait on the Tomcat, and probably 5 minutes on the quad.

    How was everywhere else? Like beyond the Epic resorts? I am wondering if this is the new normal under the Vail regime.

    As a Sugarloaf Ambassador, I will be skiing there this weekend.  Despite the recent rain, I know they got several inches of snow, have good snowmaking weather and a bit more falling tonight. This weekend the temps & weather will be excellent so I’m looking forward to it despite early season limited terrain. 
    Take a look at their webcams if you’re on the fence. https://www.sugarloaf.com/conditions-and-cams

    Do what exactly are the responsibilities as an Ambassador? Are those the people who greet you when you arrive?


  3. Long and short of it... Okemo gets a new 6-pack. Nothing else in the East.

    Transformational Upgrades at Okemo – The company plans to complete a transformational investment at Okemo, pending certain government approvals. The investment will include upgrading the Quantum lift from a four-person to a six-person, high-speed chairlift and relocating the existing four-person, high-speed Quantum lift to replace the Green Ridge three-person chairlift, increasing uphill capacity and improving circulation across the resort. The company also plans to renovate and expand both dining and ski school facilities, as well as enhance accessibility for all guests at the primary point of arrival.

    Could be a problem, though its not so easy to take off. you definitely need two hands. I did not see any complaints about that online, so I guess its not so much of an issue.

    You'd never notice that they are magnetic unless you try to take it apart.

    I had a chance to try them both out last weekend. I'm a fan of the Shady Rays. They're a smaller goggle than the Asoko and don't have that bug-eye effect. I know its not a problem for everyone, but they didn't sit on my cheeks or mesh up with my helmet well, either. 

    They both work well and have nice magnets, but for fitment, SR's are where I'm at. 

    Kids and their big goggles nowadays. 😉
