    Done for this year. It's not all that bad, and I'm neither a spring chicken, nor a prime physical specimen.


    I'd say Powerline, but it gets tracked out pretty quick. I'll add Stitchline and Flume...

    Feel bad for the Mt Snow peeps. Previous years they'd make top notch early season effort. Yesterday from Killington Peak it was clear there was a lot more snow on the north face of Stratton than Mt...

    Nice to see it un-NELSAP'd. Skied it a bunch in the early 70s. The owner was Sam Hall (I do miss the days when ski areas were owned by an actual person), as I recall he was a bit of a cantankerous...

    Star Wars meme. A joke, nothing more, making fun of the whole hate on Killington thing, and not intended to be aimed at you specifically. Still, I'm flattered you think I'm worth hating. Seems like...

    Yes, let the hate flow through you!!!

    Seriously, they've done a ridiculously good job on snow making. "Temperatures? We don' need no stinkin' temperatures".

    Mike Solimano announced last Monday that the chair would be ready the 9th. That's Wednesday! Probably the load test occurs early this week, get the approvals, and boom! Nice job by Jeff Temple:...

    Interconnect continues to be on the Killington-Pico radar. They continue to lease the land, and they continue to update the Act 250 permitting. When they put in RFID, they put in a six station reader...

    It never made sense. If I recall its south of Sugarloaf, but like the loaf, too far off the beaten track. I get that if you build a destination resort people will come. But there was never a viable...

    KZone is a cesspool and everyone, including the mods, know it. They just don't care, and cite that the law protects them personally.

    Regardless, it is unfortunate that this thread about the sad...

    Internet has changed many things. VRBO, the ability to instantly price shop, has made realtors far less the gatekeepers to rentals than they use to be. It has nothing to do with passes. And does...

    One's choice depends on one's circumstances. If you're older and married with kids, snow chasing typically isn't an option. Wives and kids (and even grand kids) need a little stability in their...

    If you're in marketing you never want to lose control of the your messaging. That's what SR did by shuttering their board. Did they think the community would evaporate? Naive. They should have taken...

    I'm not a SR pass holder, so I know nothing of it. As a Killington (and Epic) pass holder, I can unequivocally state that both treat their pass holders well. Mike Solimano and Killington clearly...

    Dumb. Sundary River voluntarily giving up control of any aspect of their social media messaging is foolish.

    Automation for snow making is a poor use of limited capital. Snow making is a minimum wage job that only lasts a few months a year. The yearly savings don't work. Where robotics work is when...
