    Singles Line

    At Sugarbush it depends on who is managing the queue at lifts like Super Bravo. If 2 singles are in the front row of the lanes, some of the staff will ask if they want to go alone or not. If both are ok with sharing, they pair them up and tell them to sit on opposite sides. If either person...

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Makes sense it was late afternoon with the direction of the light and shadows. I have this over my fireplace here in VT. Took the photo years ago and had it printed on canvas. My dad custom made the frame as a Christmas present one year.

    I like the lighting in that shot...very interesting. Almost looks like it was taken at night.

    Singles Line

    Exactly. If you're not combining multiple singles, there's no point in a singles line (From the mountain's perspective).

    I'm inclined to agree. Definitely had more snow today than we were supposed to get. It was sunny when I first woke up this morning...but that lasted about 30 minutes before clouds took over completely. It has been snowing on and off most of the day. Pretty decent squalls a couple times too.

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Personally I think if they were not planning to run if this year due to COVID, they would have announced that. Instead I'm of the mindset that it is a temporary decision that they simply don't believe it is "time" to run it yet. Personally I'm a bit torn. On the one hand I'm a bit lazy and am...

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Takes me about 20-25ish (and I usually consider myself on the slower side as I stop a lot on the uphill parts). The most I've ever done via the lift is maybe 3 runs in a row at CR. Conditions would have to be incredible or there would have to be no one there for me to lap it more than that...

    That thought has entered my mind numerous times but I've never followed through on it.

    Not bad out there for my first weekend of the season... Here's a few photos I took... Nothing too crazy, but I had a blast out there. Felt so good being back on the mountain.

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    I really don't find it all that strange...natural trails just barely finished opening. And the terrain is accessible...so I'm really not overly concerned about the CR lift not running.

    Yes, I did. That's actually what reminded me there were fireworks by the mountain that night and to get my camera ready (and double-check what time they were). I didn't know where those earlier ones were coming from though.

    VAIL SUCKS

    Not really...they're so small that they don't need that many staff. And with being open only on weekends, that makes it easier again.

    Thanks. Couldn't see much of the last few minutes of the show other than some colored flashes for the most part. Wasn't sure if it was fog/clouds or smoke from the fireworks. I know the best fireworks shots are typically early on before the sky gets filled with too much smoke anyway.

    Isn't Unihab the complex above North Lynx? "Next door" to me is one of the Village Run phases I could have sworn. I was actually a little further back with my camera setup right before the little footbridge/walkway from the North Lynx property to that parking lot though.
