    Precipitation is supposed to be below average. But I don't believe this takes into account lake-effect. So maybe not so...

    I'm with you Tuna! I really wonder about the return on investment of the newer technology.

    Gates are stressful and slow down the line.

    Perhaps we should avoid veering too deeply off the "skiing on the cheap" topic.

    I will say that the Epic/Ikon formula of high day rates and low season pass prices does give plenty of elbow room...

    While we're talking lifts, I really do appreciate the way the Valley House quad was implemented (FG with carpet). It's so great to have a warm, wind protected lift that accesses a great variety of...

    You need to upgrade your local contacts. It's a nice, smallish ski area. The drive up and down is easy, and a huge improvement over the sh*tshow on I70. I like to ski there on the first day of a...

    Was he suggesting Jay Peak for this season or next? If it was for this season, that would be a pretty big deal. For next season, well, all kinds of things can happen between now and then.

    I'm not sure why they need to spend money on an HSQ when a fixed grip quad would do the job and be more wind resistant. I assume that cash will be an issue for the first few years, if not forever. ...

    Doubt it. HV has never been very aggressive about opening early. I do think they have decided to affiliate with either Ikon or Epic, and it's certainly possible that the resort has been sold.

    MSC is really not a direct competitor to the Ride and Ski card. But the Vermont Travel Club is quite similar to Ride and Ski and I think it offers better deals:
