    Smuggs Off Map

    I'll preface this by saying that I know this isn't something any of us really like to discuss in detail out in the open on the internet. But I'm headed to Smuggs this weekend, there could be a foot...

    Not much interest at all to a Boston day tripper. I'd use the 7 days at Boyne since Loon is an easy day trip and I typically rent a house at least once or twice a season at Sugarloaf or SR. Figure in...

    Which woods at Ragged did you hit?
    I'd say start with Bushwaker off the Metro Quad at Jay. Its a blue, lower angle and pretty open. The trees get a little tighter together towards the left and the...

    I was there on Saturday. Things were in decent shape on what they had open. They were blowing snow along the top ridge line of the green peak, but not sure if they have guns on the steeper trails...

    So what was it worth to have to sit on a broken down lift in the wind, cold, and snow for 2 hours? I hope the mountain took care of these poor people. And I hope they were prepared with a snack and...
