    It never made sense. If I recall its south of Sugarloaf, but like the loaf, too far off the beaten track. I get that if you build a destination resort people will come. But there was never a viable...

    KZone is a cesspool and everyone, including the mods, know it. They just don't care, and cite that the law protects them personally.

    Regardless, it is unfortunate that this thread about the sad...

    One's choice depends on one's circumstances. If you're older and married with kids, snow chasing typically isn't an option. Wives and kids (and even grand kids) need a little stability in their...

    I'm not a SR pass holder, so I know nothing of it. As a Killington (and Epic) pass holder, I can unequivocally state that both treat their pass holders well. Mike Solimano and Killington clearly...

    Dumb. Sundary River voluntarily giving up control of any aspect of their social media messaging is foolish.

    Automation for snow making is a poor use of limited capital. Snow making is a minimum wage job that only lasts a few months a year. The yearly savings don't work. Where robotics work is when...

    Killington still owns the Sunrise lift and still owns the base lodge down on Rte. 100; it is leased to a snow mobiling company, and they use the NEP trails. When Killington redid the Skye Peak area,...

    He will have no trouble with the steepness or the lift, however there probably won't be a lot of areas open in the NE, so you will have to deal with the Veteran's Day crowds. Possibly there will be a...
