    That is not true, skied Copper last Friday and we did not pay to park. In fact they have several free skier lots. All require a shuttle bus to the slopes, but the shuttle buses ran frequently and...

    Until this year's pump boost, Wachusett could pump as many GPM as SR. Stowe and Okemo are right up there around 9000 GPM I believe and Snow blows that away and K probably too. Loon has to be...

    Definitely what Newpy said with the Barker Quad. That thing is a nightmare being a Yanoma.

    I heard a strong and credible rumor/report that if not this coming summer, then absolutely summer 2021 Barker will be replaced. The push at the mountain is for 2020, we will see if Boyne bites on...

    Not sure about the pipes, Killington has been on an aggressive pipe replacement path for a couple of seasons. Other resorts have blown by SR in terms of GPM water pumping capacity. SR is finally...

    Based on the 10 day forecast, after this Saturday's R@!n, temps look to dive early next week. They are still in expansion mode but should push some capacity to recovering on open terrain too. The...

    Given Act 250 is now in place and seeing the summit of Jay, I still have no idea what on Earth they could replace the Tram with. The tram terminal is literally bolted to the side of the rock face...

    Or SB as others have has/is transitioning to a dynamic pricing model for walk up tickets. So the price on a given day can fluctuate based on demand. Many are now doing this so they don't have a...

    $9 is cheap, based on all the complaining on the NEP FB group on SR food pricing. Actually been hearing a Cheeseburger is running $14 this year just for the sandwich. Based on that, SR's pricing is...

    I don't know if I'd say K has gotten the goods. They have received enough snow to open some natural and woods. But I bet you will find it quite skied out, they haven't received that much snow this...

    I'm with Tuna on this, the primary reason I added a helmet was to stop worrying about how low I ducked in the woods! Wasn't for fear of high velocity or force impacts. Though I will say not an hour...

    K likely has spare parts for the Yan components since they have 4 Yan-Poma modified HSQ's in their lift fleet. I guess they are kind of lucky in that regard, having four makes it a bit more...

    SR the past several years has really pushed early season team training. A couple more years, assuming they do double their Snowmaking from the previous 8K gpm to 16K gpm, I am interested to see if...

    Big mountain, it is fun but doesn't really have any of the western big mountain lines. I'd actually put it in the same bucket as Steamboat, a notch higher because of the history. You have to time...
