    Per the snow report, it is on tonight's grooming schedule. This will be the first time for upper Ripcord since prior to the storm. Lower Ripcord was groomed Saturday night though.

    Really hard for me to pick a favorite. Everything was skiing well last weekend.

    With so many resorts just reusing passes every year, you're going to see less and less with actual dates on them. With RFID cards, some "season passes" even look the same as a day ticket would look...

    I ski alone quite a bit. I pretty much agree with much of what others have said. I like having sole discretion over what run to ski, when to start, when to stop, when to take a break, etc. Woods are...

    I had 3 great days of skiing at Sugarbush this past weekend...but now it is mid-week so arguing will have to keep me entertained for a bit.

    How many people in this thread alone also said they had no cable in the 80s? It would be one hell of a coincidence if this "small minority" that we're supposedly part of happen to be so...

    A small minority? In 1980 only 22% of households with TVs had cable. It wasn't until 1987 that we crossed the 50% threshold of houses with TVs that had cable. Even in 1999 it was only up to 68%....

    None of that does any good if you didn't have cable. I was born in the 80s in NJ as well. My family had no cable until the early 90s (at least after 1993 as I remember having only 1 or 2 channels...

    I agree. While weathermen existed back then, weather forecasting for the common man has changed drastically in the past 10-15 years alone. Back in the 80s/90s, no one had access to the models the way...

    It is certainly possible. I'd love be able to dive much deeper into data like that, but unfortunately it simply isn't available to us. Back in the 80s, it was also a lot more work to find lodging...

    Meh...I skied Friday, Saturday, and today at Sugarbush. I never waited more than maybe 4 minutes in a lift line and often much less (with the exception of Castlerock, but that doesn't really count)....

    Was up there Thursday night through today. With what I saw and experienced first hand while skiing, I was pretty sure the MRG number was much closer to reality than the SB number. Glad to see SB...

    Was in the CR lift at the same time as you it sounds like. That wind kicked up crazy about a minute after I got on it. My clothes were frozen solid when I got off the lift!

    Around 30 on the valley floor at flatbread at the moment. Was a mix of everything from Rutland north on 100 but seems to have mostly stopped for now. Roads weren’t too bad. Decided to eat before...
