    No idea whether it has been discussed, but I believe the bylaws limit snow making to occurring below a certain elevation.

    Agree 100%. I said the same thing in older threads. With a little effort, no one is fooled by counting a single trail as 3, but it does make it a lot easier to provide useful information on what is...

    While my sample size is not great, and my observations spread some years, I've noticed very few snowboards at Sugarbush (at least South) and Stowe, and more at Jay and Gore (has been a few years...

    Not on the map really, to the extent that matters. I took a scary fall on that but thankfully was okay. Somehow caught my ski despite moving quite carefully and then tumbled down. I lost my...

    When I was a kid growing up skiing Gore (1980s/90s), Upper Darby and Lower Steilhang were almost always closed. Later on they started making snow on the latter at times and now they may do so more...

    Really? I thought that picture was Vermonter with a view of Green Beret and Valhalla. It seems like it is showing skier's right from the tram. Am I totally off?

    That is the other side of the argument but most mountains will just note on the snow report that "so and so is open from trail A cutover". I find that a lot more refreshing then take one continuous...

    I actually think Stowe's upper/lower distinctions are very helpful. I don't care about the total number. But from their snow report, you can figure out exactly what is open. You don't have to have...

    Thanks for the report! JPTracker - any chance you'll be at Jay next Monday or Tuesday (or perhaps Sunday)? If so, and you are interested in meeting up for a few runs, can you PM me (seems like you...

    Surprised I never answered this back in 2005. Here's my current list. Still haven't been to Smuggs (might go there for a day this weekend) or Sugarloaf (or anywhere else in NH or Maine). I'd...

    I have done it going in a path which you carefully slide down and then it drastically reduces the jump. It forms differently different seasons. I keep wanting to have the guts to jump it from the...

    Forgot to mention, Alta Zero (since it's not part of the normally open Alta Chutes) is steeper than Tower 3, other Alta Chutes, Experts.. Also a ridge off to skier's left of East Ridge Traverse is...

    Jackson Hole.

    I've been to:
    Whistler (early season so not much was open)
    Snowbird (early season though more was open than my trip to Whistler; skied only limited hike-to terrain)
    Alta (no...

    Probably a chute, the name of which I forgot, out of bounds at Jackson Hole somewhere in the Rock Springs area. I think that was likely steeper than any of the stuff I skied in-bounds at JH, which...

    I've never been to Sunday River, so I'll admit I'm not completely informed...but if you like steeps and trees, seems like Stowe is the obvious choice.

    I used to think that, but when I demoed a handful of pairs before getting my current pair a few years ago, I definitely felt differences. I couldn't also describe, but I knew what I liked.

    I can name a few, all at Jackson Hole.
    (1) Losing my ski and then tumbling down Alta Zero.
    (2) Looking over Corbets, especially when it has a huge drop. In a way that is the most scary, since the...

    The turn isn't necessary for a midstation though. MRG's single and the old Killington Peak double (I think) had midstation loading without a turn. Does it have to do with the location of the...

    Some reps also go into the threads and continue to respond afterwards. Steve from Jay Peak is great about that.

    Never been to Wildcat, but basically I'm with DHS. If it is not going to hurt conditions or ruin atmosphere (yeah, I realize "atmosphere" is very subjective), I prefer a HSQ. Obviously, for some...

    Not sure what I'd ask at the moment, but I always like hearing from MRG, and Eric does a great job answering questions. And how could we omit MRG?

    Also, I don't personally have much interest, but...
