    It wasn't terribly reassuring to read the top story in the Globe today. MA officially has 218 cases, but the story seems to count around 300 hospitalizations of suspected COVID patients in eastern...

    It does look more like a rage quit than an unpaid bills situation. Hope he changes his mind!

    It's been years, but I always liked this one. Steep bumps, but seems to hold snow well.

    My guess is that they view loading-related stoppages and slow downs on Tempest to be a major problem. I agree! It's a slow lift, but intimidating for beginners (and kids) on loading. It can stop...

    Certain spots on the big groomers definitely get scrapey. How big the scrapey spots are and how quickly they get scraped depend on conditions and how much is open. Usually it's just specific spots,...

    The limiting factor lapping SR today was lines, which were apocalyptic at the base of the Locke lift and bad at the midstation. The snow was good, particularly on top, and crowds on the trails...

    Man, this brings back more memories than the average spam post. Manali and Vashisht are indeed tons of fun and a great jumping-off spot for treks in the surrounding mountains. I would love to go back...

    For real.

    Has anyone ridden an 8-pack before? I've never seen a chair bigger than a 6-pack. I'd prefer a gondola/tram for 8 or more. I have to think most trail pods would be overwhelmed with the...

    Hiking trail which apparently will be used as part of a half marathon course next month. I'd be very surprised if it's ever an on-map ski trail again. It requires too much snow and would get scraped...

    It doesn't give you the whole story for operating P&L, but I'd say it's very important for the health of the sport and industry. The more people have more good days, the more people will fall in love...

    This sums up my feelings about that peak very well. I really like that area, and I do White Heat maybe three times a season.

    The funny thing about the terrain at the very top is that it's only...

    SR was fantastic this long weekend. I'd have to call it the best weekend of the season so far. Friday night's precip didn't mess up the snow pack much at all. There were heavy powder leftovers all...

    Well, sure, it needs snow to be good. Have you ever been impressed by a half open mountain on a groomer day?

    It's probably true that it's more of a late season than an early season mountain. It...
