  1. What'd you get? I'm looking to replace my touring setup (see photo above) with something much lighter, but I'm being very slow on actually pulling the trigger and buying anything. Need new boots, too.

    VT or NH?

    North Conway is pretty mellow; I think there's a brewery there for aprés entertainment and food. Where are you flying out of that you're finding $100 flights to manchester though? Even after paying for a rental car, I don't think driving myself, if I were to go solo, would really be all too much cheaper after accounting for gas, tolls, wear on your car, etc. Also, I applaud you for trying to tackle your fears on your own terms. While flying to new england is certainly not my preferred method of traveling there, if it works to get you over your fear, then it's worth it for you to get yourself off the east coast in the future and enjoy some better skiing.
  3. I would expect conditions to be nothing short of epic. That's a bummer.
  4. not my purchase, but somebody bought sugarbush: https://vtdigger.org/2019/11/13/sugarbush-resort-sold-to-colorado-firm/
  5. I’d agree on an average day. Getting blue on a legitimate pow day mid-week if there’s already a base off trail is pretty fun though.
  6. I don’t understand the JF hate, really. I’ve been a blue passholder literally my entire life and will both defend the place and talk crap about it in the same breath, but I dunno why so many on here think it’s worlds better than blue. Blue has a little more vert and faster lifts, and I guess arguably some more interesting terrain, but on a 6” day, I’ll take frost over blue as long as there’s already some coverage in the woods. Their snow quality and grooming is consistently better than blue’s, and even on holiday weekends, crowds are nowhere near as bad. I think a lot of people are maybe slightly blinded to the fact that MOST people do not get to the lower lot at 7am and stand in line for opening of the 6pack and try and cram as many laps as they can into an hour and a half or two and then peace out. All that said, I’m very curious to see how this season pans out, crowd-wise, with the ownership shakeups in the poconos.
  7. Based on what information? I’m fully expecting it to be some random investment group at this point that gives absolutely no tangible benefit to skiers.
  8. Pine hill park just outside of Rutland? Place is pretty fun on a bike! Pretty dope that you got a day in June! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Stowe and Okemo is Epic pass, which gets you a bunch of options out west as well, if you wanna go that route. Cannon and wildcat look pretty cool, and I'd imagine are gonna be waaaaay less crowded than Stowe. Unfortunately I haven't made it up there this year, but have friends who are local there and they said the crowds since stowe went epic have been pretty bonkers on weekends.
  10. Keep checking their snow reports. It should be great coverage based on how much snow they've had this year, but if it warms up quick, things start to melt out and could change pretty quickly. That said, the scene on superstar at that point will be stellar. Top to bottom bumps, people from up and down the east coast all congregating on that one trail to get some prime springtime bumps laps in. It's super fun. Unless you've got a crazy good deal on the grand, don't stay there. I stayed there with my wife last time we were at killy and it is absolutely not worth the upcharge. It's unlikely you're gonna be able to ski in/ski out at that time of year anyway, and it's a long-ish walk to the lifts. Summit lodge is one of my favorite places up there. It's usually cheap, has awesome breakfast for a slight upcharge, they have a bunch of hotel st bernards hanging around the loungy areas, and it's a smaller family run place. It's on the access road, about a 5 minute drive to the K1 parking lot.
  11. Looks like great conditions for bacons Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Let’s play a game. There are no prizes. Make your best guess on who will be the first to: First to crash First proper tomahawk First skier in an instafamous-worthy photo First polygamy porter consumed First pro call out First to pass out drunk at an inopportune time First to clog a toilet First to clear out the hot tub due to last nights beer farts Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Just gonna drop a few memories in here for everyone's enjoyment and to keep the stoke rising. You're welcome/I'm sorry: 09/10 Closing Day beer-induced trainwreck: The second deepest week of my life with some fine gentlemen: Toast skis a little bit better now than he used to:
  14. i bought a killington lift ticket last sunday.
