  1. Back at it. Skin lap at Stratton on the way to Jackson NH, skied almost top to bottom with a little fast grass thrown in for fun. Made it to Tuckermans Saturday morning. The hike up was mud, rocks, slush and snow, we did skin a bit towards the top. Boot pack up right, they got about 6” of snow on Thursday night and we had first tracks in right. Really heavy cream cheese snow. Boot up left En-root to Hillmans. We skied down Hillmans and to rope 7, then back to hiking on the way out. In total it was 8.2 miles,4100’ of vert, 7.5 hours, 4 beers, 2 liters of water and countless snacks.

  2. Forgot to post this on Monday night since I got drunk from celebrating, but I finally finished my PhD at Widener University and hope to never take a class ever again. As difficult and time consuming as it was, I really enjoyed it and would 100% do it over again if I had to go back in time. Even though it is already official, the "official" ceremony won't be until May when I get to wear the fancy doctoral regalia. Looking forward to celebrating with @AtomicSkier Sunday morning with a Truly enjoyable gravel ride if anybody is interested. Hopefully this doesn't mean the end of my studen

  3. Hey All, I’m back from another fun day at Abasin. I arrived at the mountain at 830 and there were only a handful of people. I was booted up with ticket by 845 and only two people in line at the black mountain express. I rode the second civilian chair with some guy who hadn’t skied there in 20 years. Then over to the lenawee lift in 2” of new snow...basically breaking trail.. Up Lenawee and did the run to the left of powerline first all the way to the base and it was all untracked on top of groomer. Did a few lower laps go really milk that perder which was less wind

  4. April 17th, 2021..Loveland Colorado day 5 of 6 of the Colorado skifari. I honestly didn’t feel like hustling to get ready for skiing today and the drive to Loveland on 70 isn’t as picturesque as the drive to Abasin. It was around 810am and I was in maybe the 14th row with maybe 19-20 available. A lot of folks taking their time to boot up and drinking beers. Secured my ticket for $75 and somebody by the ticket office was trying to sell tickets. It was in the mid teens and long lines for lifts one and two. Lift one at least gets you up there a little I think my wait

  5. April 16th, 2021 Abasin day four of six Hey All, I’m back from another fun day at Abasin. I was outside at 6am clearing the snow off my car..had Mickey dees breakfast again along with a coffee from hotel. I didn’t really relax much, I had ants in my pants..the powder panic. Left Hampton inn at 740am..pulled into Abasin before 810am, the drive was slow but uneventful...it was a brisk 19 degrees in Silverthorne and 14 degrees in the lot at Abasin. I wore a fleece layer which is rare for out west but wind chills below zero I need to be comfortable.

  14. Smuggs shmoo fest has a few more lift service days remaining before the bull wheels go silent this saturday. It was going to end Sunday, but there's rain in the forecast, so Saturday it is. I've been going out early afternoon for 5-6 laps in the sun, shorts and sans helmet. Bike season begins..have a great summer PASR!

  17. 4/18/21... Abasin day 6 of 6. Likely last day of the skison. Hey All, I’m back from another fun day at Abasin. I woke up around 4am today with a pretty bad headache. I’ve suffered from some altitude sickness this trip. I’ve had it worse in the past with sinus issues in addition to headache/ear issues and lack of appetite. A part of me wanted to sleep in as there’s no new snow but by how early the crowds descended on Loveland yesterday, I needed to get moving or I’d be parked in Kansas. I packed up my suite at the hampton inn and left house

  18. Hey All, I’m back from day 2 of 6 with another trip to Abasin..I know from yesterday where the snow is good and had a general idea of what the wind was doing to the snow. It was sunny and in the mid 20s when I pulled in at around 830. I took my time booting up and there was actually a shortish line at about 850 when I got in line for the black mountain express..I even went inside the bathroom their locker room is off limits it’s basement and super tight. Use your car as a locker. Was maybe 8-10th chair was only 855..rode with somebody who’s parents live in macungie.

  31. Got my early check in complimentary at the Hampton Inn...it’s adjacent to a shopping center and the front desk lady said the Chinese restaurant is very good. Also a walking path nearby which looks to lead up to the Dillon Dam..free breakfast looks to be grab and go style but starts at 6am which I like..Einstein bagel is basically across the street....I didn’t bring swimming trunks but there’s a pool and you make reservations for half hour time slots. JADIP. As little orphan Annie said,”I think I’m gonna like it here”

  32. https://www.stormskiing.com/p/podcast-40-montage-mountain-managing This is a month old now but I just listened to it (on 2x speed). I didn't see it mentioned anywhere here - an interview with Montage's owner Charles Jefferson. There is some pretty interesting stuff discussed: -The guy did not ski until after he bought Montage -Providing good customer and passholder experience, affordable season passes and midweek tickets, and making snow in March -Long Haul is being rehabilitated like the others lifts there but not replaced due to the unique Montage crowd flow -Hotel

  33. Finally broke down and bought a rototiller for my John Deere 1025r. Should have done it a long time ago. Heres a pic of my uncle trying it out last weekend.

  34. Like, I get it, everyone's tired of wearing a mask. I'm sitting in my kitchen wearing one right now because we have some contractors in our house doing some work. Those facebook comments pretty easily point out the people who don't really have any compassion for anyone besides themselves though. In the grand scheme of things, wearing a mask is not that hard of a thing to do to help out everyone around you a little bit, especially the people who can't for any reason get vaccinated yet.

  39. Concrete set nicely. I’ll hopefully finish up the wall and installing the pavers on top of the concrete next weekend. Wayyy overshot on the concrete calculations though, guess it’s better to have a few extra bags vs not having enough.

  40. It is when you get another 7" so far today and it's still snowing. It's be worth the extra time driving this weekend! There was 6" on the ground when I got back from Stowe around 4 today and another 1-2" fell since then.

  41. 4/15/21 Copper mountain day 3 of 6. Hey All, I’m back from a fun day at Copper mountain. I got Mickey dees breakfast this AM plus had some coffee from hotel. Took my time getting ready and parked in the free Alpine lot at Copper mountain essentially like the fifth or sixth row. Booted up..took shuttle bus to east village and got my copper card from a kiosk same as at blue and Abasin then you can add on and use the same card. I made my way to the Super Bee six pack..it wasn’t open yet and maybe 40-50 kids doing training or competition at the
