    Dang, I missed it by a day. A few degrees up or down makes all the difference.

    Hmmm, lots of rich New Yorkers ski at Stratton, so I'm going to guess the tab for the two drinks was north of $20.

    Bretton - 11/24/19

    Somewhat of a soggy day at BW. From the weather reports I thought they'd be getting snow, but when I arrived it was mostly drizzly rain with a little sleet mixed in. The snow wasn't as good as last...

    Looks like a good opening. These early season cold temps are letting a lot of places get an early start on the season.

    They're saying it won't open until next fall. I think they will just finish up the roof and exterior and then wait until next summer to dress out the interior.

    After lunch I went to Bretton, and it was like a ghost town compared to Loon. I guess everyone took their runs in the morning and went home, since when I got there at about 1pm there seemed to be...

    Loon/Bretton Woods 11/15/19

    Headed up to Loon for opening day yesterday and also hit Bretton Woods in the afternoon to pick up my season pass.

    Nice sunny day at Loon with a fairly big crowd for the opening. They only ran the...

    Attitudes may differ based on a person's age. If you grew up in the pre internet/social media era, then driving a car represented freedom to get out of mom and dad's house and to socialize/show off...

    Yeah it's pretty great. I hope it doesn't ruin other resorts for you since they may seem a little flatter and less exciting now. I felt like the après ski was pretty good in the base area too. Did...

    This looks like a breakthrough. Now you're ready for JH! A pro tip on the cellphone ski photography - you can often get more scenery in the picture if you hold the phone horizontally.

    That looks impressively deep and powdery for this time of year. A lot of places got hit with strong wind on Saturday, but the way the snow is sitting on the branches in the photos, it doesn't look...

    Might want to wait for a good year on that. As Warren Miller used to say, "If you don't do it this year, you will be one year older when you do."

    I headed up to Bretton Woods on Sunday to catch the leftovers from Saturday's storm. I've been sidelined for the past month with some tendonitis (my left hip flexors have been lodging a formal...

    I wonder what made him lose control. Maybe one of his skis pre-released on him. I know I've been in some high speed carves this season where I felt like if a ski came off at that moment, very bad...

    One benefit with the Ikon pass is you get up to eight discounted tickets if someone you're going skiing with needs to buy a ticket at the window. It's a 25% off discount, which softens the blow of...

    A supercapacitor you can charge and discharge extremely fast without damaging it, since it's not storing energy via a chemical change, but just as static voltage. But they suffer from charge leakage,...

    They will have redundant systems like GPS, cameras, LIDAR, etc., but there will be situations where they don't know what to do. They will probably deal with this by telling the driver, "I can't...

    I don't think it will be quite like that. The self-driving cars are going to be networked. When a car goofs up and crashes, the engineers will get the data, analyze what went wrong, figure out a fix,...
