    Here's my experience at Stowe- Stowe has always been very busy on holidays/weekend powder days. Like everywhere else it's ski on-off M-F. What has been noticeable to me since Epic is early and late...

    This isn't true at all. There are plenty of times when Mansfield stake has had 12" & there's rain to a dusting in town of Stowe. It's happened a few times this season alone. It tends to happen...

    I ski Stowe regularly. Don't find crowds to be any worse than before the Vail purchase. It does seem that it's a bit more crowded on weekends later into the season, but this is completely...

    The speculation is obvious because the owner of Smuggs is 80yrs old and it's adjacent to Stowe. I wouldn't be totally surprised if a Vail acquisition happened. I also wouldn't be surprised if it...

    I think one of the reasons they’re not in on the European market is because the ownership structure there is so different. In Austria & Switzerland the majority ofthe on-mountain amenities (as well...

    Didn't notice any price difference in Stowe's food prices this past season compared to the prior. If there was an increase at all it was minimal & would be normal without the ownership change. ...

    Not quite fake news because skiing in Europe depends on alot of things. Where in Europe? There are lots of places there. Switzerland= expensive. France, ditto. Dolomites- can be, but there are...

    i'm not one to defend Vail, but the window rates at Stowe (and most in the NE) were steadily increasing as it was. Vail didn't mess much with that, at least this year, so that can't be laid on them...

    Interesting read. The only thing I disagree wholeheartedly with is "Because once you’ve ridden modern high speed lifts, slow ones are anathema." I'd rather wait in a lift line than ski trails with...

    You do realize that your lift plan here goes directly over the Long Trail? I think there might be a slight opposition to this type of plan

    It really depends on what we mean by rain. Hard, heavy downpours- yeah that pretty much sucks. Very light mist or light drizzle with decent visibility, soft snow underfoot & no one else on the...

    Great point & I think a re-visit of the real estate in the future by Vail & MMC is inevitable. Because other than increasing the number of Epic passes sold, what is Vail really buying? Yeah they can...
