    I think they advertised 225" before they closed. What you accumulate is important, but so is what you maintain. Sugarloaf averages 200" and almost every spring they have more base left over than...

    well, one thing is for certain, he's not doing any FBGM at parties. I'll let others look up what those initials actually mean.

    That's some bad PR right there. Primary competitor is not only open, but offering I believe free skiing to Vets and SR is open only to race teams? I guess they made a calculated decision that very...

    Those issues yes, plus the insane traffic too and from the resort that the added pass base has caused.

    Why not

    Chondola + Spruce lift

    Am Ex for first trail. Overdraft back to Chondola for downloading.

    Seems like that would take less snow than Aurora. Better lift situation than Locke.

    Wouldn't you still need to use Locke for downloading if they aren't open to the base?

    Maybe?

    Thus far in the East, Vail has a small new parking lot at Stowe to their credit for capital improvements. Really haven't done or announced anything other than that so far at their...

    I think the River will have the better terrain open and fewer crowds. The pitch on Locke/Barker is better than Northridge/Snowdon.

    Long way off? I think it's pretty certain both Cat and Snow will open by next weekend. Not sure on Okemo.

    Bretton Woods is blasting right now. They can open that first trail with about 6-8" base....

    Huh?

    I absolutely remember years in recent history that SR opened weekends only for the first week or two, even with a ttb route.

    let's lay off the attacks. Tuna has his quirks and so does everyone else. I personally welcome his contributions back even though we don't see eye to eye on numerous things.

    One of the things NH schools do now, which I think is smart is they allow full transfer of credits from community college into the 4 year programs. UNH at least has it locally with Great Bay...

    I'll eat my words as a NH resident when there is a state income tax or standard sales tax, but in 12 years here there has been little momentum towards either.

    Do some lawmakers argue for them?...

    I'm speaking from a conflict of interest stand point.

    But like I said, that's easy to overcome by pointing out that a tax on skiing opens the door for taxes on other activities.

    I just looked and think what you are seeing is the very top of middle Lynx. Looks like they've made snow from summit down to the top of the Tomcat chair. You can't really see Polecat from the base...

    I'd say doubtful. From what I saw they were only making snow on Upper Lynx so far.

    Wildcat opens with Lynx, not Polecat. I'm biased, but IMO it's the best opening trail at any Eastern ski area. 2100 vert of consistent blue to black pitch with no run out.
