    Hmmmm I always remember Hadely being on-par with Holyoke for price but I will look into that. I'm not in the area any other time besides ski season.

    Actually I think you're very qualified on this matter. You probably learned some ins-and-outs regarding the lift maintenance staff while you were bumping chairs at Mount Snow. As each chair passed...

    Ehhh...maybe I have to buy a nice one, but if I make coffee at 5am, keep it in my car all ski day (in the cold), and drink it on the way home it's annoyingly cold.

    I know I've been spoiled since...

    Free Coffee- I-91 Corridor?

    So last year there was a Pride gas station in Hadley Mass that would give out free coffee that I would hit on my way home if I was doing a daytrip to/from VT. Unfortunately they've discontinued that...

    A quick Google Earth measurement yielded me roughly a 9,000ft-10,000ft long lift from the base of Sunbrook to the mid-mountain of Haystack. Slightly shorter than Slidebrook. Got $12-$15 million in...

    Arguing for a connection would bring in similar issues to the Killington/Pico connection. The scale of such an operation would be massive. 30+ lifts. 100+ miles of terrain to make snow on, patrol,...

    I don't have enough Stowe experience to say this definitively but I'm sure as hell it's less crowded than Okemo/Mount Snow.

    Okemo, Okemo, Okemo. There are lots of relatively inexpensive places to stay in Ludlow (the town at the base of Okemo). And the town its self has that quaint Vermont look/feel but with lots of...

    I have been to SR twice. Once in 2012 and once last year. Last year was probably the most "luxurious" ski trip I've had in 5 years or so. I stayed at the Boyne-owned White Cap Lodge 3 nights, and...

    I feel like a lot of people hate Ikon/Epic because we're pretty personally tied to this sport and to certain mountains.

    I compare it to the Smalltown, USA Walmart example. If you're a local in...

    I've always heard the fixed grips are pretty reliable. But yeah, a lift from 1982 should be addressed in a mountain's 5-10 year plan.

    Yes that is Powerline. One of my favorites at Killington...narrow and quirky. Too bad it's only on the upper part of North Ridge...there is absolutely positively no Lower Powerline :grin:

    I have mixed feelings long-term for SB being bought by Alterra. It's just crazy. Sugarbush was the last major mountain in the East not owned by a multi-mountain company. It's crazy how fast times...
