    Make me a Super Mod I'll turn this place around whippity-snap (that's the sound of a whip). I'm pretty sure DHS and JimG would be happy to do my bidding :D

    The scratching and scraping sounds have deterred me more than once. And when I have skied it after hearing those sounds, it lived up to my icy expectations.

    Edit: I guess that's Upper Birdland I...

    Magic can have lift lines and sometimes they are pretty long, but more likely on a powder day. The trails are never crowded since we're talking a double/triple/quad (whatever they have running now,...

    I've got a few Cannon passes to use this season (it left a strong impression on me last year for my 1st time skiing there late season powder day) so good to know. Burke is pretty much the ultimate...

    Seems like the biggest % of ski injuries/deaths I'm aware of are sliding on hardpack off the trail into a tree head first.

    Trees vs trails = more likely to get minor injuries in the trees, more...

    basically you're screwed but NH gives you flexibility especially if you're willing to ski some places not on Epic pass, like Black Mountain NH. Also better XC skiing up that way.

    Similar thing happened to me at Jiminy Peak about 10 years ago. Was caught (not)looking at a good clip and hit a randomly placed mogul. Flew for a while and landed on my head and shoulder. Shoulder...

    It sure saves me from being whacked in the head by tree branches a lot. Traumatic head injury, maybe not.

    I have gone over the handlebars on a mountain bike directly head-into-tree before and I'm...

    Key sentence here: "[Helmet weareres] also are more likely to hit a tree or fall from a jump."

    Majority of skiers who aren't wearing a helmet are gapers, or the occasional old dude who knows his...

    I would ski Hallows and Wardrobe any day as well. IMO tree skiing doesn't count as a poach it's fair game if you can access it. I was just ribbing you for announcing your poaching. Enjoy it up there....

    He already told you 44mph on a freshly groomed Ripcord... the answer is no. Unless the wind was blowing uphill limiting speed. Tuna Speed is going as fast as you can within limits (assuming you...

    40% off midweek @ Pico / Killington is better than nothing in a pinch. 50% off Berkshire East is nice. Mount Snow any day tickets $69 I *guess* is better than nothing.

    Looking up Ripcord yesterday it did appear to have a "glue" base already established under the powder. By this, I mean the middle of the trail was a more yellow color (looked almost icy), where the...

    Between the refills all day today + anything falling after close + the wind you're going to be skiing fresh I'm sure.

    Rumble and Robins Run @ Smuggs are pretty similar IMO. By "similar", they still both rank as a couple of the most unique challenging runs in the East. Trails to avoid on icy days for sure. Preacher...
