    Lake Louise is about 160" per season, but like you mention they preserve it well. Plus, you get blower pow in the north-facing back bowls, which is where the real beauty is if you're a skilled skier.

    Jackson Hole faces mostly southeast, which is close to as bad as it gets in terms of aspect. You have it exactly right. You might have midwinter conditions late in the season up in Rendezvous Bowl or...

    I pretty much agree. Goat's Eye has some pretty fun terrain. I haven't skied Delirium Dive, but it's supposed to be excellent when it's open. I will say that on a bluebird day, the views from...

    A lot of rain. This stinks. I was hoping to get to Sunday River on Easter, but I will have to wait and see what they have open.

    Yes, the resorts are paying for it. Perhaps they are agreeing to reduced payments from Alterra to the resorts. More likely they are locking themselves into longer contracts with Alterra, perhaps...

    Personally, I haven't skied at Sun Valley, but I have heard excellent things. Uncrowded, lots of vertical, awesome town with a lot of history (the country's first chairlift). The downside is that...

    Snowbasin definitely feels like a locals mountain. They got some additional traffic from being on the Mountain Collective Pass (including me last season), but not a whole lot. Talking to people...

    Do you realize that your source for PCMR being "world class" is the PCMR website :grin:? That website was written by their marketing department, just like every other ski resort's website. Frankly,...

    I suspected earlier that Teleskier was a troll, and now I'm almost sure of it. Teleskier, if you're not trolling, give me a little bit of what you're smoking :beer:!

    I can't take him or Save Our Canyons seriously anymore. I agree with a lot of their mission, but they've jumped the shark and gone way too extreme.

    The guy below was definitely unlucky. By the time the avalanche passed through the cliffs, it wasn't even that wide. Wrong place at the wrong time. That said, I'm not sure how clueless he was. It...

    The transportation solution is an entirely different issue. Do they charge a toll for going into LCC? Does the ski bus expand? Do we build a gondola, or a tram, or a train to take people up LCC? Do...
