    While snowboards do have a negative impact on moguls, it is minor and overblown to the point of being basically inconsequential. The two best mountains for moguls in New England are Sugarbush and...

    You need to get over SB upgrades for the exact reasons everyone is telling you.

    It's LOW on the list of importance for customer experience and potential ROI.

    You really need to get over this. Alterra won't be doing any of that anytime soon. It's so far down on the capital improvement priority list for them with so little ROI, you're best to let that...

    Ya'll are pretty uptight. This sign has been at the top of Wildcat for many years now. Also clearly not at the true 4062 elevation. I ski right by it and think nothing of it. Lots of families...

    They definitely got too chainsaw happy in places on Burnt. Also agree it's a last minute decision type of place. I've probably skied Sugarloaf 50 days in my life. I'd venture to say 30 of those...

    I get all that. For me the allure of a place near a ski area is all about simplification such that my downtime is more down with less stress. I work my tail off during the week in a very stressful...

    Why not do a seasonal rental vs buy? I'm about 90% certain I'm renting a place up near Wildcat next season. I can afford to buy, but I'm not sure we'd get the off season use out of it for it to...

    They need to either do that or convert the mountain ops building adjacent to the Overeasy Gondola into a day lodge, but even that won't address the poor location of the beginner lifts and trails to...

    Very true. You can't expect places to always remain the same. Though a place like Wildcat in the East has the best shot at it.

    I skied Stowe today and vastly prefer what it was like in 95 when I...

    They're not? Do a search of Deer Valet on VRBO. I picked a random week in February for next season. I found 85 homes available from $2500 to as high as $17,820 per night. Really hope the top dog...

    I'm not sure many ski area GMs give a shit about the crowding complaints whether from locals or tourists if the mountain is printing money.

    Yes and no. Sad to see it vacant and falling apart for sure. Lots of history just rotting now. Probably not sad that his kids / grandkids don't have the burden of managing a money losing venture. ...

    I probably would too, but can't you get both and Epic local and an Ikon pass for near the same money as a full Alta / Bird? Maybe a lot of people are doing that.

    I think their two biggest mistakes were prioritizing the Kennebago replacement over the Rangeley and spending too much on the lodge. Had they done the Rangeley first and gone with a modest...
