    I'm with Tuna on this, the primary reason I added a helmet was to stop worrying about how low I ducked in the woods! Wasn't for fear of high velocity or force impacts. Though I will say not an hour...

    K likely has spare parts for the Yan components since they have 4 Yan-Poma modified HSQ's in their lift fleet. I guess they are kind of lucky in that regard, having four makes it a bit more...

    No, in a dashed yellow passing zone (IE, single lane and you are passing in the opposite direction lane) you are allowed some leeway to complete a pass quickly to minimize time in the opposite...

    There is one catch with the double yellow pass in Vermont. Legally, you can pass but at a speed that DOES NOT EXCEED the posted speed limit. The original idea of the law was to pass slow moving...

    I93 from the Hooksett Tolls all the way through Concord has become painful especially Friday afternoon/evening and South on Sunday afternoon/evenings or last day of long weekends. I know widening 93...

    SR the past several years has really pushed early season team training. A couple more years, assuming they do double their Snowmaking from the previous 8K gpm to 16K gpm, I am interested to see if...

    Big mountain, it is fun but doesn't really have any of the western big mountain lines. I'd actually put it in the same bucket as Steamboat, a notch higher because of the history. You have to time...

    Welcome to SR, racing comes first. This year, it is exacerbated because of the reduced water flow in the Snowmaking system to date. My wife commented this past weekend as to whether there were more...

    Thursday could be an issue for Barker but if the winds are actually North, should be fine.

    That shouldn't kill everything, not sure which day you are talking. If when Chondi is running, that could be susceptible, but the balance of current lifts should be ok.

    Too bad for your idea any type of lift served skiing in Slidebrook is D.O.A. That is why it doesn't have a ski to midstation.

    Glad to see they went with red covers keeping the lift color theme. That would lead me to believe if they ever decided on a bubble chair it would also have red Plexi.

    Many friends/family suggested I get one but never wanted the bother. Then there was the issue where to mount the thing. Looked dumb to me on top of a helmet (and I'm in the woods a lot, I got a...

    I would think an upgraded drive on Ellen Summit would maybe be the first upgrade if you will (that lift could use a slight speed boost). With regards to CR, while I wouldn't want to see more chairs,...

    I agree, I believe there is a niche for each type of opening. The WROD die hards are served by the areas that serve that up. Obviously, not an overwhelming demand as many resorts now hold off...

    As far as I know, you still need to get a day ticket with you Ikon, they are not direct to lift. If lift attendants were allowing Ikon skiers to access with just the Ikon pass displayed, they should...

    Insurance carriers don't typically cut checks very fast, especially when you've had several now large claims the last several years (Spruce Triple, now the pumphouse). Add to that, perhaps the pumps...
