    This is why the general population has no regard for personal responsibility.

    The smoker you drink, the player you get. I try to pack things up long before I actually go skiing the first day but always forget something.

    It's choosing between Bristol, HV and Greek Peak basically for that area. Never been to Snow Ridge. There are no Everests thrown in there, I think Bristol has the most vert at 900-1000'.

    I will keep this in mind. Shoot me some beta when the snow gets good; I can swing ski days at the drop of a hat midweek.

    I agree with this; I was in favor of changing from late March to early Feb a few years ago because I thought it helped my odds of good snow to make up for the long trip. Not necessarily true.
