    The size of many areas is truly difficult to comprehend until you experience it first hand. A place like Vail seems small in comparison. The above treeline experience is far better. I'd say the...

    What mountain is the say "Alta" of Europe?

    I have no immediate plans of skiing Europe, but have done some research. I haven't really found a site that is specific to average snowfall. It's...

    Curious why you would not consider Cannon again? I'd easily take Cannon over Ragged. I got bored at Ragged after two years being a passholder. Not enough bumps and the glades aren't open frequently...

    Plusses and minuses. Only thing I expect this year is a significant increase in F&B prices. You could still get a burger and a beer in the bar for $20 pre-tip last season. That's very reasonable...

    They did in the 90s and early 2000s. Typical closing date had always been third full weekend in April. Good snow years they'd extend a week. Never beyond that. Even the monster 2000-2001 season...

    I think the only way to really tell that is to shorten the season length and see the affect it has on pass sales. Only example I can think of that has done this is Killington during the Nyberg...

    I'm a Cat homer. It's for sure overall my favorite skiing experience in the East.

    They do deliver longest season in New Hampshire, but it's really not by much.

    Look at their start and stop...

    Steamboat would be a good choice.

    Keystone checks a lot of the boxes too. Though Keystone can get pretty crowded. Have shuttle options to Breckenridge, Vail and Beaver Creek from there. Epic...

    Western US. Utah probably has the most reliable snow.

    It'll be interesting to see how this year pans out. Last year was unique in that virtually everywhere in the country had above average to exceptional winter weather. Well maybe not the Mid...

    It's the least affected large mountain by wind in New England, save for Magic. The windholds for the gondola while more frequent than their existing lifts, will still be minimal.

    I would certainly appreciate that. Of course where I ski most is probably the best Mountain in the East for cranking vertical. Between a HSQ hitting 2100 vert in 7 minutes with usually a 5 minute...

    Maybe. Google maps says 4:47 door to door for me. That's under the best of driving conditions, which given the traffic hell hole Mass has become over the past ten years means basically never. It...

    Maybe it's just me, but it seems like the places that use RFID gates have a more difficult time sending the chairs up full. I frequently see people stuck at the gate or have had it happen to myself. ...

    They are, but I as mentioned, I pretty much only travel down that way when it's not ski season

    I can only go on photo evidence, but I've seen many trip reports on here from Bellyare over the years showing great spring bumps on numerous runs. That would be reason for me to visit.

    If it's as crowded as you all say and half of it is a terrain park, then perhaps I too would give it a hard pass.

    Up here crowds at CM are really light and Pat's isn't terrible in the morning. ...

    I guess it would be very expensive, but they could probably blast and grade something if they really wanted to on that peak.

    It just seemed weird that there is this vast acreage between the two...

    Are the Poconos areas that much better than Mountain Creek to drive further too if you live in North Jersey? Camelback, Shawnee, Blue, Montage, Elk?

    I've only seen Elk and Montage; both during...

    Now my questions

    1. Why do so many of you from metro NY basically refuse to ski there? Is the snow and crowds that awful? I totally get wanting to ski Northern mountains more, but knowing how...

    I just got back from spending three days at Mountain Creek for a business meeting. I had never been to the area prior. We stayed at the Minerals Hotel which sits at the base of the middle of the...

    Count me as someone who has little desire to return to Vail. Been a couple of times. I was underwhelmed by both the mountain and town in comparison to other areas I've been in Colorado. Is it...

    My experience at Cat only dates to 2005 when I moved to Portland. Grew up skiing in VT pretty much exclusively. 2005-2012 I skied Cat 2-3 times a season. I've been a pass holder at Cat since 2012...
