  1. For on-pavement use? The details are not important. Sure the locking diff is important off the pavement, but you're not going to notice driving on highways.
  2. I'm still holding out for JetBlue service to Europe. They are the one domestic airline I'd considering taking overseas.
  3. This is a really important point. You don't want to scare away first-timers with a bad experience. I'm not sure it's part of their thought process, but it should be.
  4. This is a great topic. I just never have the energy to get myself up the hill.
  5. If you're staying on pavement there is not much difference in the drivelines. Ground clearance on both is respectable. The suspension makes a much more pleasant ride on the Crosstrek. Both are slow and loud inside so equal demerits. Slow and loud really are the best adjectives for the Crosstrek.
  6. Looks like nice trees! I agree that I love under the radar spots to ski on busy days. I love to explore new glades.
  7. Just opened up my ski bag after my trips. Noticed scratches on the bases from where sand somehow get in there. Need to be more careful securing the skis with straps. This was my first time flying Swiss Air on a trip. They were very lenient on the baggage policy. If you objected to the charge, they gave up. Hauled all sorts of crap with me.
  8. I just got back last night. I'm still working through my backlog. I know I owe a trip report. This weekend looks like nice weather. I'll be heading up on Friday, probably as soon as I am caught up with everything.

  10. He has moved on to better things. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  11. Friday: drinking in Berlin Saturday: travel day Sunday: St Anton
  12. We need a thread for ski instruction videos. I found a great one on powder skiing. This instructor is fantastic, and the kids can rip.
  13. This is sound advice. I send beginners to Wildcat too. They try to advertise Attitash as the family mountain, but for my money the opposite is true.
  14. It’s a touristy area. In winter. On a Tuesday evening at 6pm. This place is a circus on a weekend around 9pm in summer. I come here because it is one of the more authentic German restaurants in a city that is surprisingly lacking in them. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports

  16. Get AT it. Let's move the general mountain discussion to this thread.
  17. Yeah, I was surprised how good Attitash was. The snow drained well. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  18. Having a fresh shop tune was key this weekend. A clean base edge and flat base are really important for gripping this frozen granular.
  19. It's because I'm leaving for 2.5 weeks. You're welcome.
  20. Talk to me more about fleece pants. Have never considered them. Any thin fleece pants that anyone can recommend? And what is the point of them? Ass insulation on the lift?
  21. Good luck! I'm leaving this evening. Will miss all the fun.
  22. Were they? Everything was first in western Maine yesterday too.
  23. I still don't know why you were driving during skiing hours.
  24. Sunday is back in play. I don't know where I'm going though. FYI, you guys may not hear a lot from me for the next few weeks. I'll be traveling more or less constantly for the next 3 weeks.
  25. Forget backcountry. People die inbounds. Just a couple weeks ago someone died inbounds all the time. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
