    Yeah, there are a lot of resorts with lessons now. But as stated above, the NATO events would probably be my recommendation of where to look.

    As for Tele-Chicks. I don't know if it's them, the...
  2. Re: "South Facers" What are the best Soth Facing runs in the N.East??

    You may be right but it is the warmest area at Killington and in the spring seems to be the one that melts down faster. Maybe the South Ridge area is more appropriate for this honor and in that case...

    My job is in an office that has to stay open 24/7/365. It is understood that you will have to work some holiday's sometimes. I think getting a job at a ski resort you should kind of consider this. ...

    I laugh. It's funny.

    But if we were all that smart, couldn't we have also figured out a way to raise the temperature at which water freezes? Even by just a few degrees?

    Evacs happen just rarely enough for resorts to justify skimping on training for them. Emergencies are somthing that will never get the time, funding, or resources for training they deserve. How...

    My feelings I think kind of sum up a lot of the responses here. You have to use a bit of common sense. As rivercOIL pointed out, you need to be responsible for your own rescue. So don't do it...

    I agree that bases and quality are important. I'm just saying the fact that on a holiday weekend like Thanksgiving, the effort to open up more trails should have really paid off. I think that with...

    Where do you even begin for something like that?

    I guess there are much worse ways to spend your time and effort. This is at least positive. Absolutely incredible if you ask me.

    I knew it sounded familiar. I think it's been in one or two of WM's films. I really like that idea of soft edges.

    I thought 3 or 4, but some vehicle problems and work kept it steady at 2. That is 2 months in a row with 2 days now. December has to be better.

    That's a tough break. I did a little jumping back in high school and it was a blast. Not enough opportunities around for people to get into it. The sport doesn't really need setbacks like this.
