    There used to be more trails on granite...but they've closed some of them over the years (Pipeline apparently had too many injuries or so I heard). But yes, that peak is largely under-used and just a...

    Of course if you've ever been there in general they probably have your name on file thanks to technology today. So that may not work either if you were ever there. It even specifically says you're...

    Nope. Village is not a priority lift/area and won't come online until Gate House as a whole opens. Thanksgiving to mid December is just Super Bravo (and/or Valley House) and Heaven's Gate for lifts....

    I wouldn't call them WRODs at all. Sugarbush's typical progression is to open some combination of Snowball, Spring Fling, Jester, Downspout, and Organgrinder first. Then temps dictate a lot of what...

    I completely disagree. Beginner trails are rarely the first to be targeted with snowmaking in Vermont and many resorts open before those trails are available. You often see warnings in snow reports...

    December is just a terrible time in general to plan in advance as it is so variable. Even Vermont can have a low number of trails open in December some years (and other years they can be 100% open)....

    Any increases you see this year are just pretty much business as usual and what was already planned before the merger. What (if anything) changes next year once the merger is actually complete and...

    Yea...they definitely do some impressive things. Sugarbush has a "First timer to life timer" program for people ages 13+ who have never skied. $299 gets you 3 days of tickets, lessons, and rentals...

    December in the Poconos is extremely risky. The Poconos in general relies on snow-making nearly 100% to get trails open. If the weather doesn't cooperate, they won't have enough time to cover all the...

    I don't understand the question about "ski too much" with a season pass... That just doesn't seem possible.

    I'm trying to think of another season pass to a mountain in the Northeast in general (never-mind just the Cats) that is as pricey as the Windham one...so far I'm coming up empty. Could they really...

    As long as Win can keep skiing 100+ days a season, he's not letting Sugarbush go. Don't expect Sugarbush to be bought out by any large company any time soon.

    One of abc's earlier posts mentioned that she rotates between Epic and Ikon. So I think her comment in this case was specifically saying she doesn't buy Epic every year, not that she doesn't get some...

    Perhaps that depends on the resort. Sugarbush just lowered the senior age a few years ago (my dad was happy as he was able to qualify earlier). My dad point blank asked Win about it one day when he...

    I agree with your first sentence...but then the rest I'm a bit mixed on. I don't think it is quite the same rationale. Seniors that need to be more conservative with their money are more likely to...

    I don't think it is as simple as "well I'll just take my business elsewhere then". Let's look at Hunter. What other options are there in that same general area? Windham, Belleayre, and Platty. If...

    Curious...how much did these lifetime passes cost? Can't say I would blame Vail at all for not honoring them though unless it was explicitly detailed in the sale contract that they had to. Lifetime...

    LGA isn't a great option for western travel anyway due to the Port Authority rule not allowing non-stop flights from LGA to cities over 1500 miles away on any day other than Saturday. (Denver was the...
