    Driving down it just seemed there would be no way to slow down short of chains. I don’t recall the road to Alta/Snowbird being that scary. Obviously, avalanche risk is a whole different dimension.

    Road to Bolton Valley?

    On a lark we drove up to Bolton Valley today. Road seemed almost undoable in an icy storm without chains. What’s it like on stormy days?

    I'm a bit surprised they didn't wait till after tomorrow. I'd be shocked if they re-opened and I'd expect that pretty much every area still open will not be far behind. I'd think skiing itself would...

    I also meant to mention a book named "Where to Ski and Snowboard Anywhere." They've updated it annually. You should find it on Amazon.

    I'm pretty late to the party here. We've not been to Zermatt but have looked at it. Every time I look at Switzerland it just seems really expensive. We've been to Austria 3 times. A couple of things...

    You have a long list but here's a few thoughts: We stayed Frisco, CO one time. Copper Mountain is the closest area and, at least at that time, had pretty convenient buses between town and mountain....

    I didn't read everything in this thread. My main advice is that if you like Mexican food I'd recommend trying to get to the Red Iguana. They have 7 or 8 different homemade mole sauces. We've only...

    I sure wouldn't invest much time or money into trying to ski this weekend. Saturday could be fun and if I lived close to a ski area I might consider it.

    NH Conditions this weekend

    We had plans to go up to Bretton Woods this weekend. It's close to a 4 hour drive and we'd be paying for a hotel room for one night. We like BW when there's a lot of snow and and the glades are open....

    Yep, it has that optimal mix of true beginners, Park riders bombing over to Corinthia, and other folks just using it to access other terrain. Really a bad mix on a busy day. It seems there are some...

    Can't compare staying at Alta vs Snowbird. I would suggest that if you like Mexican food and have the opportunity, check out the Red Iguana in SLC. My wife and I had lunch there and thought it was...

    Well, I'm well past double nickels. The impact on my body really depends on conditions, and in CO you're getting less oxygen than you're used to getting. I also find I have much more endurance later...
