    I don't think that group is insignificant. Small for sure. Most ski bums would fall into that group. They really only ski their home mountain midweek as they are too busy working over the weekends...

    Yes, I'm sure an announcement is on the way that Vail will be burying 500 miles of snowmaking pipe throughout it's eastern portfolio.

    Just noticed on Facebook that Granite Gorge avoided foreclosure and auction. The owner said they will be open for skiing next season. If that means the summit chair will spin, GG would be a good...

    Waterville Valley 6/30/2019

    Was up camping at Osceola view this weekend. Haven't been to Waterville either winter or summer in at least five years, possibly longer. New terrain looks pretty decent. Looks like it requires a...

    Maybe Otten will take one last shot over at Saddleback. I'd much rather see SB come back to life than what was planned at the Balsams

    Yes, ski areas get sued all the time for injuries and fatalities. How often do those lawsuits lead to redesigns?

    Again, what specific trail changes do you think Hunter should complete?

    What are the specific characteristics of the terrain that caused the deaths? If you are going to place blame, you need to be specific.

    Did the deaths occur all at the exact same spot and under the exact same snow and weather conditions? How many thousands of runs were completed on that trail(s) without incident last year?

    Yep, all Hunter's fault. Couldn't possibly be the skiers not properly maintaining their equipment and skiing out of control. Nope

    And I don't mean to be insensitive towards any skier that dies or...

    Pretty nice out by my company HQ in Mahwah. Rolling hills with lots of forest. I'd live there over most Boston suburbs to be honest. No way would I rather live there than NH, but it's far from a...

    Yes math!

    That's the point I was trying to make with 5 ski areas on the 173 NH peaks with Bicknells thrush preferred SUMMER habitat. No one's advocating for it, but you could literally clear cut...

    100% true. And for Wildcat to challenge and change this reality, they'd be looking at six figure legal bills. That's something a small revenue ski area would never be willing to do.

    Might not be a trip report, but bushmogulmaster is director of operations at Ski Cooper. Been there a few years. He's definitely contributed a little bit of Cooper stoke on AZ over that time

    Oh, they're much better than NYC and JC! Boston is only the Fourth most densely populated city in the US! They're big on preserving open space!

    What a dumb thing to say

    I've lived in NH for 11 years, VT for 13, ME for 3. So, well over half my life in the three primary New England ski states.

    I don't feel my opinion on development at...

    BG was exaggerating. And if we are talking 4k foot NH peaks only 3 out of the 48 have ski development. The bird threshold is 3k feet, which as I've mentioned there are 5 out of almost 200 3k...

    You wanna know why I hate that damn bird personally? This is why. There is not a single developed glade above roughly 2800 feet elevation at Wildcat. There is an abundance of side country options...

    The issue is environmentalists have no tolerance for development and bird harmony. They basically want every acre in New England between 3000-3500k elevation off limits to development because of...

    I used to feel the same about my tax dollars going to Cannon. Then they went way overboard with Mittersill. Now I wish they did nothing over there at all. I mean it's still very fun and much...

    I think you are misremembering how close Cannon is to Lincoln. It's less than 15 minutes.

    Burnt Ridge sounds fantastic. I wouldn't want to see it changed either. Ironically, Sugarloaf skiers often speculate on putting a lift in on Burnt Mountain. If they...

    Aren't there plenty enough high speed groomers at Gore already?
