    It's been stated in this thread before, but the Balsams will have 2 major factors working in it's favor. High latitude and low skier density for superior snow preservation. They'll be spared of...

    Does anyone else find it funny that in a press release about record breaking snowfall/snowpack, the 5th sentence is about Killington and their 80% of normal annual snowfall?

    And yes, I realize it...

    Good for you. Unless you're getting paid to do it, it's not all about the skiing.

    This isn't the exact picture I saw yesterday, but it gets the point across. Can you say powder starved?

    This was taken in West Baldy at Snowbird, so I know it can get tight.

    My first time out West (A-Basin), I didn't look at a trail mail, just went down what looked good. Looked at the map at the...

    Starr with a soft surface is harder than most double diamonds out West because it's so narrow. You get one or two chances to turn, and that's it. Out West, everything is so wide open, there's a...

    Multiple mountains do make a serious effort. At least 1 in each region where a reasonable effort can be made (Central VT, Northern VT, NH, ME). You're not listening to any of the points we're...

    This is what happened to me growing up. None of my friends skied, so I stopped in HS and college. My brother had a bunch of friends who skied, and he continued with it.

    I think the viable options for a late spring push are so small.

    You need:

    High natural snowfall to build a good base (cross off everyone south of Killington)
    Sustained cold temps to keep...

    While I'm not a surfer, I think rain is a good analogy. Rain means storms which churn up the water creating larger waves, just like you need cold for snow and like DHS says below, colder temps keeps...

    If you factor for location, I bet that % goes up drastically. You can't expect places in Southern New England to push for May, and even Southern NH/VT (Ragged, Gunstock, Bromley, etc) is highly...

    I always thought this was the case and lift tickets were loss leaders, especially out West, but a couple years ago I read an article that interviewed the CEO of Vail, and they had a breakdown of...

    I always thought this thread implied the grades were based on your personal experience, not the region or industry as a whole.

    For me, it's been a solid B. A lot of fun days with decent to good...

    Not at all. There are a lot of similarities between the resorts. Vibe, or accessibility, are not among them.

    Yes, on a day-to-day basis. There is an intrinsic marketing value to staying open late though. The ones who do stay open wouldn't do it if it weren't some kind of a loss leader.
