    X and I go way back I consider him one of my good friends. But we agree to disagree on this topic.

    He's right of course, that the state could spend more to market their ski areas and it would...

    I agree.

    One of the kids at Gore came out with something a few years ago that has stuck:

    The bypass is a factor and also the fact that the mountain is closer to the skiers than the town are both factors. Even without the bypass 95% of skiers can get to Gore without passing through town....

    Burnt at Gore will change and that trail will get put in. Many (not me but many) dislike the traverses between Gore's 4 peaks. By adding that new trail it will make it easier for non-tree skiers to...

    Magic is awesome. I've only skied in a few times, but I love the terrain, and there's a distinct lack of dynamite used. Gore's lowest elevation terrain (Old Gore aka The Ski Bowl) is like this to...

    I should be clear, this is another area where my opinion is not mainstream. Many or even maybe most agree that if "they" would build some beds that Gore would become more of a destination.

    I can't answer your question DHS. It makes no sense to me. Anyone skied Empire at Whiteface? Another narrow gem, with no snowmaking.

    I would define it that way too. Some people look at Northern and So VT, and some add in Central. I'd call Killington Central VT, but if I had to choose between north and south, I'd probably put it...

    Agree with all of this.

    I can see the summit of Gore from our place. It's maybe 4 miles as the crow flies, about 10 miles by car, including the access road. I love the drive along the river.

    The lack of crowds and lack of amenities are directly correlated.

    If Gore was "state of the art" like say Stratton, it would be more crowded.
