    I was one of those who went to Burke at less than abundant snow day once (maybe even twice) and never gone back since.

    We all "see" it! The the CEO of mountains in the Ikon/Epic pass kept telling us it's not! "It's ONLY because we had a bumper snow year".

    The "numbers": if it's ONLY due to the bumper snow year,...

    The helmet debate is going along a parallel path as the debate on airbag in cars.

    Insurance data shows airbag barely made a dent in overall injury rates. But look at the environment we're driving...

    It's not just Stowe. I was at Squaw Valley last spring. I couldn't believe how far I had to walk from my car to the base! The lot was like 75% full in late April. I've skied Squaw in spring quite a...

    Not too bad compared to southern VT. But that’s not saying much, I know.

    I used to ski there in the holiday period a lot because I could score cheap’ish lodging. It’s really not bad once you get...

    I'm usually pretty happy as soon as I put on skis. So never occur to me to add alcohol. What exactly is the point anyway?

    I can see drinking after skiing, or even ONE drink at lunch. Other times,...

    I'm not sure on average how that would turn out.

    But I did hit a tree trunk once. It probably wouldn't have mattered had I not been wearing a helmet (didn't see much sign of damage on it either)....

    That's ok tuna.

    I have a similar feeling when it comes to XC skiing at northern NH. There's good XC there for sure. But thing is, I haven't done much XC skiing in northern VT. So don't know how...

    Tuna, what do you mean by that? Care to elaborate a bit?

    I know there're quite a few big touring center up that way. But so is northern VT (Stowe, Trap, Craftsbury, Mountain Top that I know of). ...

    Oops :oops:

    Not paying holiday walk-up rates. :sad: No way!

    Maybe I'll just stick to xc skiing and only do the first hr or two downhill.
  16. Time to plan for the holiday weeks -- where to?

    Have Epic pass

    So that pretty much means VT (Stowe/Okemo/Mt Snow) or NH (Wildcat/Loon/Attitash...?). Did I miss any worthy mountains?

    Assuming, optimistically, our good luck in early season...

    I've only worn a helmet more like 15 years. ;)

    And my buying a helmet comes AFTER I started skiing in trees. Not the other way around. I don't change how I ski with or without helmet.

    That's how many skiers?

    I'm always skeptical of these "studies". Or at least the journalist interpretation of the studies.

    I've NEVER hit my head even once skiing for the several decades...

    For all the grief Vail Corp gets, they know what it takes to drive people to buy passes. One of them is not to “hand out discount day tickets like candy”!

    Good job you guys did on getting the goods.

    I was tempted. But I was worried the road would have been a terrible mess (it was). And my 3 hr drive (rt) could be more like 5.

    I never understand the anti-Vail talk.

    Vail was never an "upscale resort". Nor did it pretend to be "exclusive" like Deer Valley.

    It's pricy alright. But that's more a result of its...
