    When is it too cold to ski

    Weird, this was very close to my plan for the same time period before I decided to go west. Never stayed at the Equinox but I was eyeballing the website pretty good last week. The lodging situation in So. VT looks generally overpriced to me, even by ski area standards. The Equinox seems to be among the decent choices and no more of a rip-off than any other place.

    I tend to stay in <$100/night motels run by indian families, so this is a major upgrade for me

    I once took my future wife to a "hotel" in Hunter...Interesting place, built sometime before the world was created...one and done for her. Had to up my game from there.
    Lets go!
    I'll drive.

    Manchester has seen the addition of a lot of beds in the past couple of years with the Kimpton and the Hampton Inn opening.

    I usually stay in the four winds country motel when I am in Manchester. its cheap, generally about $100/night. and they have fleece blankets with unicorns on them under the bedspreads.

    Lodging in VT and Maine is a joke as far as pricing goes.

    Costs are similar to stay in the Mt. Snow/Stratton area or Sunday River/Sugarloaf areas as they are to rent a place at a western resort town for a week. To me, that is insane. The housing market is what it is I guess from a pricing standpoint, but I'm sorry, some dumpy 1-2 bedroom house in the middle of nowhere Maine is not worth $800-1,000 for a week. Its the same for the Dover, VT area and most other areas I have looked at in VT as well which is quite disappointing.

    $100/night isn't even that cheap for a dumpy hotel/motel though.

    I pay $60/night in rutland, but that is the dumpiest of the dumpy (either of their two lovely rodeway inns). I don't think $100/night within striking distance of Stratton, Bromley, magic, and okemo is that crazy. and the four winds isn't that dumpy. I also usually opt to drive thru the night on Friday tho, to save one nights cost of lodging
