    I don't know of any other fully-covered Hunter blues that patrol will keep closed until the afternoon, so the temps can warm and soften them a bit as they might West runs like Clair's. But I've seen...

    The only skiers I ever see on the Highlands in recent seasons were racers. I think it's used for training/racing a bit, not much?
    As long as we're talking about small favors on that side of the...

    I know of people who regularly (and ostensibly legally) skin Hunter before the lifts spin, so that can be done too. I don't have too much more info but could find out. I'm sure you'll get the lowdown...

    I'm pretty sure the "new" glades being referred to are the ones that were added as part of Hunter North, but never opened last season because there was damn little natural over there. If you were...

    I think they'll probably deem it a big expense and a big risk, and those are likely two major strikes against it in Vail's "Safety First!" eyes.
    Because it's not just wide and steep but...

    That entrance is till open in the sense that it hasn't been fenced off or destroyed like that last but of old White Cloud was, and seeing that surprised me a little yesterday (of course nothing West...

    White Cloud as you knew it is no more. They cut a new swatch down so that it connects to Jimmie Huega now - in fact the former lower part of Huega (after the switchback) is now White Cloud. As for...

    Not like any of those glades ever opened last season AFAIR, so maybe they're just shunting those down the memory hole. Forget the "hey we found some more glades here" extra North side trails ever...

    Yeah, I've always heard that running less than a complete set of winter tires is a bad idea. I'm no Mr. Goodwrench, though.

    However I DID get it together to go ski Hunter today. My first ride up...

    That lift is a pokey PITA, but having been there through a couple 10"-14" March nor'easters in recent years, midweek nukings at Attitash are the best because there's still no one there. Felt like a...

    Perhaps they're already blowing on or planning to blow on the new (and improved?) White Cloud, which intersects with and actually takes over Jimmie, giving another intermediate TTB run right from the...

    Can't recall exactly when Hunter's demo day is, but I'm pretty sure past ones being well into January at the earliest (I'm looking for chances to demo early on too, so that's no good.)

    Likely it's so they can just open and use White Cloud in some form again. After seeing what they'd wrought by putting in the Hunter North lift, they never opened WC last season - in fact it never...
