    Anyone posting in this thread that has never skied in the Poconos, is wrong. Which is to say that most people posting in this thread, are wrong.

    Lake Placid is my favorite ski town in the east, and it didn't even make the list = yet another crappy ski list.

    Firstly, I go camping on a barrier island and miss this? Figures.

    I'm pretty much a 50:50 split between New York & Vermont, with maybe a day or two in Pennsy thrown in.

    New York - Plattekill, Whiteface, Gore
    Vermont - Smuggler's Notch, Jay Peak, Sugarbush

    That, yes. The other thing is when a place (presumably) starts a lift in a bit lower than necessary in an odd location to gain vert, but it's long drawn out "lame vert".

    I call that sort of thing, "fake vertical". It's technically vertical, but it's lame.

    Agree with the low participation rate and "outward expression", but not the slope management/resources bit. Race courses can be "here one morning" and an on-map groomer that same afternoon. They...

    Yeah, clearly I didnt get it. In my defense, it was a weird thread/start with zero explanation, so I didnt realize this was a new building.

    That's the thing, the entire mountain is my "park". I don't need a judge scoring my run down the backside of Smuggler's Notch.*

    This was a big part of the genesis of my original question, because I agree; and that's not the landscape today. Just about everyone has a park, even if they're virtually completely unused.

    This would be awesome. Efficient too. The tram dumps a bunch of people at the top and it's a decent wait for the second tram. So the top of the mountain goes basically "unused" for significant...

    That would improve Jay Peak immeasurably. I rarely ever ski that terrain since I'm almost always there on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday, and the Tram wait is generally just not worth it.
