    I needed to restore my iphone from iCloud backup today. Everything is in order except... AlpineZone. When i tap the app icon it shows, "loading..." for a few seconds then this message appears:...

    Ok I agree about the bar situation. But in every other aspect I stand by my previous statement. That said I wouldnt use the Mansfield BL for lunch even if it were free.

    Huh? Disagree completely about Mansfield vs Mt Ellen base lodges. Im not saying I mind the ME lodge just that IMO Mansfield is the better.

    Ha! At the end of a day I usually change completely out of my ski gear into comfortable street clothes for the drive home. I turn whichever direction in the lodge feels least crowded when Im...

    Mt Tom is on the west side of 91. The only way I remember ever seeing Tom from 91 was when it was lit up at night, and iirc only the top maybe 1/3 of it was visible. These are all pretty young...

    Yep, the lower T bar was directly lookers right from the Jbar. As Moose's map shows. And iirc the T bar was on a slightly steeper slope than the J so you had an increasing slope on your right as you...

    J Bar was the farthest left actually, at least it was when I made my very first turns.

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Maybe there's a Native American burial site somewhere with a portal to a counterpart world where people enjoy standing in hour long liftlines to ski ribbons of dirt in the rain.

    @JimG The glades and snow look great. But your selfie composition is seriously questionable![emoji16]

    I was driving from cannon to Boston metro west Monday night. I left cannon around 4:30 and had possibly my slowest drive home ever, which was pretty surprising given how empty the mountain was all...

    This defies logic to me. The ppl who are 7 miles down the road, at 11:15, in gridlock, what are they thinking? By the time they get to the mountain, park and gear up it'll be 2:00. What's the...

    I've seen that before. Thankfully very rarely but I agree it's extremely douchey. It would've been great if you had also been a group of 3 and then jumped onto the chair that he thought he'd get for...

    Any reports from Cannon or Wildcat today? Did summit lifts at cannon ever open? I was going to head to there but changed my mind early this morning. Instead I went mtn biking this afternoon and it...
  15. Attitash Summit Triple Problems 2018-2019

    interesting points. I'm going to back pedal a bit. "slow sinking" might be an overstatement. *If* Attitash is currently sinking (separate issue) it's not because it lacks a fast ride to the summit....
  16. Attitash Summit Triple Problems 2018-2019

    What I meant is that a detachable lift instead of a fixed grip (even a quicker, conveyor loading fg) is what's needed in place of the current triple to satisfy current expectations. Whether other...
  17. Attitash Summit Triple Problems 2018-2019

    Chair spacing doesn't help ride time. People expect fast lifts these days, outside of the Magic type crowd. Attitash will continue to decline without a fast summit lift. Vail knows this and will...

    I'm betting Vail replaces that lift within a couple seasons. From a regional perspective that lift is now a major blemish on Vail Resorts. It's about corporate image.
  19. Did Vail intentionally ruin snow reports?

    This. Also when it's the same people doing that narrative for a mountain week after week you eventually can pick up subtleties, or read between the lines in the reports which is impossible when the...

    I'm envisioning lifts, trail pods and connector trails added into the spaces between LP, ME and MRG and it sort of, abstractly, reminds me of another place LBO once owned...
  21. Did Vail intentionally ruin snow reports?

    On one hand I agree with this but I can also rationalize another theory, for Wildcat at least. 'Cat is a ski area not a resort. Nobody spends a week/end *at* Wildcat because there's no immediate...

    4wd SUV with fully lockable diffs and Nokians!

    But as a new Audi driver I'll agree Quattro is pretty sweet. My old WRX was more fun, in an irresponsible way, but I'm really impressed with how a...

    Storm on the way

    Driving home from Stowe Sunday night, there was a long backup on 100 heading back to 89 (Google map said accident). I turned around before passing it and Google rerouted me to some fairly winding and...

    Bad ski tune

    In my experience, unless you have a conversation about base and side angles with the person who's doing the tune, a generic "tune" by pretty much any shop kills the ski. They set the machine to a...
