    Looks great. Never skied there, but it's nice to get a peek at these places that seem just slightly out of day trip range (could drive to Jay in same time).

    Need to make up for time after getting hit with nearly back to back colds. Totally intended to hit Magic's opening weekend but for my health sake glad I didn't push it.

    The tram is the worst part of Jay. Iconic until everyone realizes how much it sucks to ride and wait in line.

    My kid just turned two. I think she'll get some ski gear for her 4th b-day. Her cousin is 3 and she ain't ready yet.

    Got up ready to get in the car at 6:00am, hoping this chest cold would have improved. Not so much. Don't want bronchitis right now. Hope y'all enjoy!

    They're similar enough I've mixed them up a few times. Both loose glades and pretty steep but not extreme. Goniff might have a couple steeper turns in the middle section.

    Trying to stop quick isn't how to avoid snow accidents though. AWD/4WD is very useful in accelerating & steering out of the way of impending collision in the snow.

    The only possible explanation...

    Probably going to head up Sunday unless Berkshire East shows some expansion available tomorrow. 32 trails at Magic sounds like a winning proposition.

    Some days I really feel like it is exactly that. This seems to be the impetus for my renewed motivation to carve up hard pack and learn how to do it really well. Seems like a long term survival skill...

    There's really no point unless you're a regular drinker and it's just routine to have a drink with lunch when going out. For me a beer is more of a temporary stimulant and provides a feeling of...

    Point 1 I agree cars more dangerous due to the speed and metal involved, but skiing more likely to be involved in a "fender bender" and 50mph collisions direct to the body can be pretty bad too

    43% more likely to crash after drinking alcohol = winning case for any sober skier in a collision with someone who's drank

    I'm not opposed to having a beer or drink at lunch break, I'd be a...

    sorry ABC I'm not really an expert in XC skiing... haven't done it several years and pay relatively little attention to it. I thought you were trying to compare Southern VT to North Conway area.

    The scratching and scraping sounds have deterred me more than once. And when I have skied it after hearing those sounds, it lived up to my icy expectations.

    Seems like the biggest % of ski injuries/deaths I'm aware of are sliding on hardpack off the trail into a tree head first.

    Trees vs trails = more likely to get minor injuries in the trees, more...

    It sure saves me from being whacked in the head by tree branches a lot. Traumatic head injury, maybe not.
