    Nothing wrong with pointing out the pluses and minuses of a given area. Ragged is weak on...

    Interesting observation cten. What surprised me from the start is the timing. Why not set it off when the big names were coming through? Why wait until after 4 hours? Maximum impact and exposure...

    I'm thinking about Stowe for this coming weekend. I have a voucher and they are a strong candidate since they are closing this weekend IIRC. But if conditions are fab, I might go for a hike/climb...

    No. This is not logical thinking. Think of all the white non-muslims that have committed acts of domestic terror. Oklahoma City, Unabomber, Anthrax, school shootings, etc. I hope you are not involved...

    Makes no sense at all. Everything we know at this point indicates that the six pack is a done deal. The Bonnie has already had its drive removed based on pictures I saw on FB today. The only thing I...

    I've skied Steins late season three times now. Never seems to have good bumps. I'd rank it very low on my list of favorite spring bump runs. Maybe I just caught it bad three different years. Not just...

    Best to assume everything said in the next 24 hours is simply rumor. Until official word is given. And even then, that must be taken as very tentative. Goodness knows how many times even the best...

    I think you have answered your own questions here. :) Gunstock has a better drive than Ragged. And if night skiing is important, they have that as well. Your other night skiing options are Pats and...

    Smuggs Sunday 03/14/2013

    I was up at Smuggs today the 13th. Very good. Amazing coverage. Upper mountain trails excellent, mid-mountain good, lower mountain a bit funky/crusty. They opened Liftline at noon (except the...

    Absolutely go for Stowe for this weekend. Both probably got the sleet, natural could be dicey either way, but Stowe is going to recover their groomers better than Wildcat. IMO.

    I'm not buying the snow in terms of powder. The snow is irrelevant... what matters is what happens immediately after the snow stops. This time of year is temperamental. If it snows, then gets warm,...
