    Both Big Sky and Taos can be a bit risky that early in the season. Big Sky is a bit better, it does have some snowmaking if thin but Lone Peak is very Rocky and needs a lot of the dry snow they tend...

    Where it is now, yup. T-Bar towers on-site in the overflow lot by Snow Cap Inn now. Barker pond is being dredged (they drained it so must have something to do with snowmaking) and in town, the...

    Not Bozeman either. Southwest has zero flights to WY and MT. Boise is the only option in that three state range on Southwest (make it five and include ND/SD too.) And you cannot get from the East...

    If we are talking Jackson, WY, this Southwest story of yours is a tall tale. The closest Southwest gets to Jackson is Boise, ID.

    I would not say that, I have run into many from the North East when in Tahoe, including this June skiing at Squaw.

    Probably equal to or greater than Utah. A lot more people in the Bay and Sacramento areas within driving distance than Utah has I would imagine. Plus the relatively quick flights up from LA/San...

    I would think Pat's will be fine, maybe even an uptick in business, especially night skiing if Vail increases Crotched's ticket price substantially. Should be interesting to see. We looked at a...

    They had moved some of the plans along but nothing imminent to my knowledge at Sunapee. I feel like Stowe Mansfield side could use some lift modernization, especially considering Vail considers it a...

    I'm still waiting to see Vail spend any significant money in the East. They have not to date with Stowe/Okemo/Sunapee. $15million the next 2 years across 17 areas doesn't have enough for lifts. ...

    Does the Long Trail cross what would be the Sterling-Spruce connection? If so, that would also add to fire to keeping that away. Granted that far North the trail is only the Long and not part of...

    What makes anyone think Vail will be quick to do much of anything liftwise in the East? They haven't done squat at Stowe/Okemo/Sunapee yet.

    I disagree, I think Vail should have major antitrust concerns, especially in NH. Vail now owns (not just partners with) Mount Snow and Okemo (so if you leave K out, they own almost 2/3 of the...

    We skied 7/2 and 3 but it was at Mammoth (with 6/29 at Squaw). Both were great, Mammoth a bit better because of elevation difference holding a more substantial snowpack = vastly more terrain open...
