    A quick Google Earth measurement yielded me roughly a 9,000ft-10,000ft long lift from the base of Sunbrook to the mid-mountain of Haystack. Slightly shorter than Slidebrook. Got $12-$15 million in...

    Arguing for a connection would bring in similar issues to the Killington/Pico connection. The scale of such an operation would be massive. 30+ lifts. 100+ miles of terrain to make snow on, patrol,...

    I don't have enough Stowe experience to say this definitively but I'm sure as hell it's less crowded than Okemo/Mount Snow.

    Okemo, Okemo, Okemo. There are lots of relatively inexpensive places to stay in Ludlow (the town at the base of Okemo). And the town its self has that quaint Vermont look/feel but with lots of...

    I feel like a lot of people hate Ikon/Epic because we're pretty personally tied to this sport and to certain mountains.

    I compare it to the Smalltown, USA Walmart example. If you're a local in...

    I've always heard the fixed grips are pretty reliable. But yeah, a lift from 1982 should be addressed in a mountain's 5-10 year plan.

    That Challenger lift has been quite unreliable the past 5-8 years I feel. I've had a number on long stops and watched frustrated lifties climb up into/out of the top terminal resetting equipment. ...

    Yes that is Powerline. One of my favorites at Killington...narrow and quirky. Too bad it's only on the upper part of North Ridge...there is absolutely positively no Lower Powerline :grin:

    I have mixed feelings long-term for SB being bought by Alterra. It's just crazy. Sugarbush was the last major mountain in the East not owned by a multi-mountain company. It's crazy how fast times...

    I never understood the logic of the "major" players opening late. If you're a 500+ acre resort not getting 300" of snow a year you have a LOT of terrain to cover by Christmas week. For these big...
