    Yup, that sounds awfully wasteful and unnecessary. Vail buying Smuggs to connect Stowe with it seems way more logical.

    Those damn kids in their trucker hats and hipster glasses really grind my gears! They should be wearing jorts and white new balance shoes proving some maturity!

    Exactly. People can fantasize about the lifestyle from behind their desk jobs all they want but make no mistake, being a real deal ski bum is a whole different world.

    That’s great! Good for you. Although, I have to admit that it sounds exhausting imo.

    In my mind ski bumming isn’t about numbers anyways, it’s an anti-establishment counter culture. It’s a...

    I must be getting old because ski movies just aren’t that interesting to me any more. I saw a Warren Miller movie over the last ten years or so, it wasn’t terrible, maybe a bit too long imo and their...

    When you buck the system and fully rebel against societal pressures to chase the American Dream so you can move to the mountains and ski 100 days a year.

    Oh yeah, true that. They may not be for busy resort type places but are probably a pretty good idea for small mom and pop places that arenít on the majorityís radar.

    I read the nelsap history on haystack today and man, it kind of sounds like that place has been doomed since day one.

    I bet they are a lot easier to maintain and cost less insurance wise too.

    I absolutely love t-bars.

    There’s a lot of beauty in their simplicity such as they don’t require difficult Evacs when they are loaded and break down or that they don’t get put on wind holds like...

    My memories of Plattekill are from the winters of 92/93 and 93/94. There was so much snow those years. I remember 6 foot tall snowbanks on the road up to the mountain and at least 5 feet of natural...

    There probably isn’t a whole lot of money there for a bunch of ski areas to be open before Thanksgiving. Killington has a niche there for sure but not a lot of incentive left for everyone else....

    Some of the stuff mentioned in here for being difficult kind of sound like they suck. I prefer flow for skiing trees, not that weird two turns to close out to traverse to whatever. I guess that stuff...

    Well itís not like we are flying out east to spend lots of money on a week long ski vacation.

    I had fun there as a kid in the late 80ís but I didnít know any better. I remember cigarette and alcohol adds on every lift tower and plenty of trash below. They donít call it ďdirty jerseyĒ for...

    The whole access to DV combined with military benefits is kind of odd. Thereís gotta be a huge tax break there or something for the developers

    if you canít figure out how to have a fun day at Vail you probably should look for a new sport.

    Is it the rad steep bro gnar? No but thereís plenty of fun skiing to be had, especially if you...

    It doesn’t bother me one bit. I look at the Wasatch as a lost cause as far as “saving it” from the masses. This why I’m also for the One.

    Real estate ski area with a connect to Dear Valley is the name of the game here. Lakeside properties too I imagine.
