    Couldn't agree more. My absolute favorite bumps skis are the ancient ("straight") K2 KV Comps with 63mm waist. They are 185cm and I'm 5'6". The skis are light and super easy to turn in bumps. Alas,...

    Sugarloaf - the King of Spring is still going strong! For those of you who are lamenting the end (of ski season), there is still a lot of nice terrain that's open. If it weren't for the strong pull...

    I scored a super nice spring day at Sugarbush this past Wednesday - snow froze overnight but with the wall to wall sunshine and rising temps, turned into a sweet corn fest and stayed that way for a...

    Yeah, that :)

    Also, calling Sunshine's terrain lame strikes me as an attempt at ski machismo, as in "I'm such a tough shit on skis..."

    If you're talking about today's conditions (Sunday, April 7), I can attest that there was no corn harvest. May be here and there, depending where you were on the mountain and when. Was the coverage...

    Well, not exactly new, but I have not had the chance to ski those in years, even though I'm at Sugarloaf every year for a week.
    This time, the snow cover was fantastic and...

    These kind of mogul fields don't exist anymore. These roundish half peach shaped mounds with perfect sinusoidal lines between them seem to be a thing of the past. What we do have is something looking...

    Look again, Sunday may be a really nice day with 6-10" at Cannon, sun and low wind. I'm definitely planning on heading out.

    Cool pic - it really was amazing to see of these things scream by, seemingly just in front of me, turned sideways (wings in vertical orientation). I'm also really glad I don't have to fear it when I...

    I was there on Friday as well and was not affected by S. Bravo's issue - it did stop for probably 5-10 minutes when we were on it, but I didn't think much of it.
    I'm of slightly different opinion...

    Thanks for the tip about the fun at Castlerock pub, alas, I'm not sticking around for the weekend, just a Friday session. Oh well.

    regarding andrec10's comment ("Dirty old man"), which most of the time is meant, at least partially in jest, at least, that's how I take it.

    As to your comment, I "resemble that remark" :)

    Highschool aged ladies in race suits is always a nice sight :-P, but I think I'll skip that side of SB and keep to SB main. Thanks for letting me know.

    I'm at Sugarbush this Friday - hoping for decent (no ice) cover and low crowds. I'm sitting on a couple of SB's quadpacks. Time to start using them.

    That's really nice - thanks for posting and for the touch of fatherly pride. I can relate. It won't be long before your boy will be skiing at your level or better. Just keep him skiing!

    For the most part, what you are describing was a "typical day" at Cannon, at least in my experience. More often than not, their cover tends to be hard with frequent ice patches. On the other hand,...

    Since you will be skiing with people who know Sugarloaf, I'm sure they will give the proper tour. But perhaps it is worth to point out that if you're playing in Brackett Basin, providing that it's...
