    From you pics it looks like they added towers to Which Way, so hopeully more snowmaking ofr it this season. Cruiser & Northstar get a bit old.

    I just looked back at my videos from this past season and they had towers on Which Way last year. I wasn't paying attention when I was hiking whether there are more now than last year though. It will see more snowmaking though simply because of the new pipe. I think the old pipe was shot which is why they put a new one in and why it had minimal snowmaking recently.

    There have been breaks in the Which Way pipeline for the past two years while we were making snow on it, so what snow we did get down was minimal. Couple that with various thaw-freeze-thaw cycles over the past couple of years, WW was very slick and undesireable to most. I did ride it a few times this past season (and not once during 15/16), following some big dumps, and it was pretty good. It was dense enough snow to cover the slickness underneath.

    Towers have been on WW for (at least) 3 years now.

    Just wondering if anyone got their new RFID pass in the mail yet. They said they would be mailed to existing passholders "later in the fall" but as we're almost into November and less than 3 weeks away from opening day if weather cooperates, I'm starting to wonder when they are mailing them.

    I just saw a message this week from Sugarbush that they were mailing them out now. Based on what I read, I would expect them early next week.

    Just checked one of my other e-mail accounts that Sugarbush tends to use (not sure why as it isn't the one listed online in my account profile) and noticed at 3:30PM this afternoon they sent me an e-mail saying it is in the mail!

    Picked mine up on Community weekend. I think this is going to work real slick.

    The resort charge option is also my favorite. I have been using it since its inception.

    No photo on the new pass is a bummer -- liked collecting them each year.
