    It’s the same deal as Netherlands. I did not tell you and you went, you would have no idea that every pot shop is illegal. I think they only have to hide there storage, and keep the amount of weed behind the counter to very small amounts. They never get caught acquiring and storing illegal amounts of weed.

    There's also the issue of clientele. Do the resorts want to attract the stoner type, or the family type? Families will be drawn to areas that are explicit, if not aggressive, in adhering to a no skiing stoned policy. IMHO.

    Personally I've never liked skiing (or surfing) stoned - there's enough of a natural high just enjoying the sport.
    I know in CO they actually have had undercover feds skiing and busting people. Read a story about it happening at Wolf Creek.

    This is what Mount Snow posted about cannabis use on property in their most recent blog post this week, ahead of their "Rock the Roots" music festival in about 10 days, where Sublime is the headliner....

    "Q: I HEARD THAT CANNABIS IS LEGAL IN VERMONT AS OF JULY 1ST? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN FOR ME?

    A: While Vermont has legalized cannabis for recreational use as of July 1st, 2018, it is still not legal to use cannabis in public places such as Mount Snow, so please leave it at home!"

    I think that will sum up the official policy that ski resorts will take the way the law is written
    '07--08 season: 51 Days, '08-'09 season: 55 Days, '09-'10 season: 41 Days, '10-'11 season: 49 days, '11-'12 season: 40 Days '12-'13 season: 57 days, '13-'14 season, 60 days '14-'15 season 60 days, '15-'16 season 52 days, '16-'17 season: 50 days, '17-'18 season 52 days, '07-'18 seasons: 567 Days

    As for the GREEN mountain national Forest issue, only sugar Bush and Mt snow are partially on federal land, but not the base areas. Bromley and okemo are on private/state, Stratton is on private, Killington is on state. I can't see any of these areas promoting use, fine with me. Perhaps Magic, on private land, will be open to use.
    Interesting I thought more were on GMNF land. Looking at a detailed map of the southern section it looks like part of Mt Snow and the very upper part of Haystack are on GMNF land. And as you said, Sugarbush up north. It would appear most the "park land" I was thinking was GMNF is actually STATE park, with most areas on State land.

    But elsewhere the relevant point was made - it is still illegal to "light up" in public......

    For what it's worth, I didn't notice much of a difference in Maine last season. Safety meetings in the woods weren't exactly uncommon to begin with. I don't recall anyone being particularly brazen, though. Probably people will just keep on doing what they were doing.

    i can't keep laws straight lol...been doing what I been doing for years without issue. That being said - Bethel ME Citizen had an ad for $250 grinders, delivered with free marijuana. Lol. Don't know the loophole they're getting around.

    It is illegal to smoke in any state in public or in your vehicle. Private property that allows you to smoke only.

    Ive heard rumblings about some mountains in MA advertising/promoting the subject since Q4 was approved but I could never see a big name like Stowe or Killy doing such a thing.

    Regardless its always interesting being the fly on the wall to such a blaring conundrum for the local government and businesses.
    I have no problems with weed used privately, but when I go skiing with the fam, I don't wanna share the lift with some boom boom huck jam kid blazing up. The upper crust types that all the Vt resorts cater to are not likely to be cooler about it than I am. I am worth considerably less to the resort than the Boston or NY money contingent, but I am worth way more per day than the average pothead kid. Dollars and sense, bro.
