    Devil's Den at Killington gets my vote. It's a crazy 5-15 foot wide skiable "chute" with impenetrable brush on either side. Air is not mandatory but it's available. I don't think patrol has opened...

    Sheesh...can't I get ONE other person who thinks tripling snowmaking capacity is "excessive"? ;-)

    Perhaps I should have phrased it..."I'd prefer to see that money spent in other areas" such as a...

    I don't like that Magic gets a pass for late lift construction. Felt the same way with the Green lift even with the contractor passing. If this was a major resort and a main lift wasn't going to be...

    Tripling snowmaking pumping capacity is a bit excessive, imo. Yes, they should be able to blow on more than three trails at a time. But no one ever went to Sugarbush for their snowmaking ability. ...

    In the next few weeks people will be paying $60+ to ski 550 feet of vertical at K...with a two-way stair trip! ;-)

    This is absolutely a fair price, IMO. 1.5 hours from my house I must admit I will definitely be doing this sometime next summer. 90% for the novelty even though I won't admit it, 10% so I can say I...

    I liked the year after Irene Sunday River explicitly opened at 9:01am to let Killington open at 9am to be the first to open.

    One of my best Pico memories and top memories this past ski season was a Powder day at Pico. I think there was maybe 8"-10" or something in that range. The day started kinda shitty with the Summit...

    Not a good look for Dopp at allll. Disneyworld is a huge PR stage and this thing having such a major major malfunction just a week since opening could be cause for huge concern that there is some...

    That's a crapload of upload capacity (8-pack, quad, and overflow from the gondola trails) onto like 10-12 trails.

    I think it would help anyone coming from Rutland or the NY Thruway. To go up the K access road up to K1 adds 10-15 minutes compared to just going to the Pico lot. I am always coming to K from 100...

    Skyeship generally does not open until Christmas week anyway. They do not start making snow at Pico until December. If they start in mid-November they would be able to get some terrain open at Pico...

    Completely agree with all the above. I was under the assumption that the added downtime was due to additional traffic as the season is just around the corner.

    Catamount and Berkshire East are smaller than Belleayre and Plattekill by a good margin. They both are entertaining though for a couple days a season. Catamount is cutting a lot of new terrain this...
