    RIP Wildcat---May 2019.

    Will Vail keep it the same anti-grooming/hardcore vibe?

    Sad that the skiing industry is now one large company. If I were New Hampshire I'd force them to give up Wildcat....

    Says the person who's been to New Hampshire a few times and thinks they are an expert on birds and bird habitat above 3,000 feet. Remind me again a mountain in New Jersey that's 3,000 to 4,000 feet...

    I go to NJ every year. There are beautiful parts. However there certainly is lack of respect for wildlife there.

    Beach towns like Ocean City and wildwood have removed or built over their sand...

    Once again it's not the bird's fault. In this situation it's the state of new Hampshire's fault. Overall wildcat now has more on-map glades than ever before! I remember going there when I was young...

    So using that logic we should just trash all mountainside forests above 3,000 feet--because the bird is actually more in danger when it's in a different country?

    I mean I've always wondered why BenedictGomez hated Bicknell's Thrush so much he has it in his signature. I've just never asked.

    I mean it's just a bird. The bird has no idea it's blocking ski...

    The key is to go to Colorado. Their traction law doesn't require chains for passenger cars (at least in the front-range stuff like I-70). Chains only required for trucks.

    Or go to Utah and take...

    I wish Skyeship would open to the public like 10 minutes earlier than the rest of the lifts. It always seems like even though I am the first gondola up at opening, by the time I reach the mid-station...

    But the day tickets were cheaper! Even in my lifetime I've seen walk-up day tickets in the $60-70 range. And $70 was Loon. Now it's almost $100 a day (or over if it's out west).

    This is simply a...

    Not everyone has enough money to afford 2 passes. So it's only one good one or no deal.

    And I agree. The pass selection sucks here on the east coast. But honestly I'm kinda ok with it because some...

    Ok so new bullwheel, new electronics, new drive motor? Can someone make a list of the stuff they haven't replaced yet? Because it seems like they have more new stuff retrofitted on there than...

    Anyone know what's up with the snow for this weekend? Mid-vermont (Killington) weather only says "snow showers" for tomorrow but places like Mt. Snow and Hunter say "snow". Any more details?

    Yeah I'm tempted to give it another try. Hopefully the power won't go out this time :-D

    It's just not worth it for me to drive there when vermont is so much closer. So I'll only go if there is a...

    All this press about the difficulty the Hunter's new trails is crazy. It honestly makes me want to go back there and give hunter another try to see if the trails are steeper than I remember.

    Tuckerman's Ravine, Mt. Washington. It's not a resort, and it won't be crowded. :-P

    Wildcat was wonderful yesterday! Soft bumps due to high elevation. Although it was the most crowded I have ever seen it (parking lots were at capacity), the crowd only was there from 9:45--Noon. And...

    I was there today. The naturals were pretty decent but the trees were horrible. At least "Chop Chop". More like Scrape-scrape on ice/rocks.
