  1. Up at Whaleback yesterday to judge the IFSA jr freeride comp. My son was in the comp and did fairly well despite middle of the night throwing up. Kids was a trooper, skiing all day. I did get out for some runs later in the day. Cover wasn’t great but the skiing was fun. Great little mountain with lots of character. Jawbone. Blowhole. Beluga.

  2. Fantastic spot yeti! Incredible how there is so much snow within an hour of me but I choose to destroy my skis at Berkshire East. Starting a thread up about skiing Nelsap areas is a great idea as well. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports
  3. I wasn’t able to make it out this past weekend so I started my season with a nice 2100’ skin and ski of Wildcat. Trip up was pretty easy up polecat. The ski down was a lot of fun. Nice soft spring skiing down lynx. Felt like a day in mid April. Natural was pretty deep in places. Great way to start the season for me. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports

  8. Ah Magic.... I really don’t ski there nearly enough living so close. Some truly great skiing there. I think you bought into magic at the best time for you. With the new green Peak chair going in you should have some nice options over there. Vertigo and Mystery sometimes aren’t groomed but aren’t super steep and would offer a nice next step. On the west side talisman is a nice steeper groomer, though I’m not sure the last time I skied it when it was actually groomed. Broomstick to heart of the magician might be a nice last step. Broomstick is narrow but negotiable and heart isn’t overly steep. But in reality if you bought a pass at Magic you gotta just go for it. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  9. Hit the east snowfields a couple days in the last week. If you haven’t been up there you should give it a try. Snow is pretty incredible this time of year. Drive up the autoroad was spectacular as always. Most of the skiers parked near the top to access either great gulf or the upper part of east snowfields. I chose to spot I’ve been to a couple times off the Huntington Ravine trail. Easy ten minute walk from the car and I was on snow. Today I drove further up be road to the larger snowfield. Weather wasn’t as nice as Friday but the skiing was still pretty good. There is a ton of snow up there still. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  10. 5/11- managed one last skin up wildcat. I was able to make it to the pretty much where hairball drops down on Lynx. There were several grass spots and skiing was not continuous. Lynx did ski well though. It seemed hard because it was only in the 40s with a stiff wind but going down it was nice firm corn. My season at Wildcat is over now I move across the street for turns.

  11. I hope they get the lift in before the season. Installing two lifts plus inspection seems lofty for them. I’d assume they will be expanding snowmaking as well. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  12. Amazed today how busy Pinkham Notch was. Tons of skiers hiking up into the bowl. Granted I’m sure it was incredible skiing but no one was hiking Wildcat which is almost 100% skiable. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  13. Missed out on the weekend because I had to work. Today was pretty incredible day to go skinning. Brilliant sunshine and perfect spring corn. I decided that rather than going all the way up I’d focus my attention on Tomcat Schuss and the trees on either side of it. I managed to get three nice laps in this area, every turn was awesome and the trees were very skiable. Best coverage in years I’d say! Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  14. 80 days and still going strong. 23 days on my Peaks Pass traveler pass. $13 a day 13 unique mountains Skied Dartmouth Skiway for the first time. Highlights- Several incredible days at Wildcat. Many great days skiing with my kids. Turns through the woods at my home hill always are a highlight to me. Competing in the Berkshire Highland penthalon. Lowlights- Hit a rough patch right when the skiing got really good mid March. I got the flu and pneumonia put me out for about a week. Busted ribs from a bad crash at Jay Peak a couple weeks ago. Put me out for a couple weeks. Midseason skiing was pretty lousy for a bit. All in all a good season all around. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
  15. Yes true! This is more for my selfish reasons. I may make it up to Killington mid May but otherwise the lifts are closed on days I can ski. Sent from my iPhone using Northeast Mountain Sports mobile app
