    Kinda off topic. I loved my March 2019 visit to PC. Planned to go back in March 2020, but we all know how that went.

    On the topic of weird liquor laws. There were many places to eat/drink...

    Nothing is wrong with it. Especially if it's just me. But a family of four doing it for a couple of nights in a row is less than ideal. Thus, looking for a few out of the box (no pun intended)...

    Was thinking about logistical issues around skiing last night. I'm pretty sure I've figured out a lot of it. But one major issue really sticks out for me.

    A little background. Most of our VT...

    Pretty much it. While it wouldn't be my first choice, I'm okay skiing in the real cold weather. I bundle up and make a go of it. I'm sure I'm not the first one to say it, but there's no such thing...

    Normally I would disagree with you as I would buy a bunch of quad packs from Sugarbush and get my average daily cost down to ~ $65. I estimated I would need to ski 15 days to break even. However,...

    I wonder if the expensive cabins have some sort of different paint job? Would be a weird typo if they meant $450 and the minimum bid was $500.

    I don't have any desire for a gondola cabin, but how...

    I hope that VT loosens up. My previous check on the VT travel map had my county at 522/million and decreasing. Today's map has us at 677/million for a 27% increase. :(

    When I spoke to someone at SB yesterday he said they have tons of historical passholder data to use in order to make assumptions. Harder to predict day pass usage and quad pack usage.
