    +1 Grew up in NJ and never skied Vernon Valley-Great Gorge (Mountain Creek) — I’ve always assumed it’s only the starter jacket and jeans crowd (which is only a percentage of the crowds at Hunter)

    I was not looking forward to a future where Peak needed to focus on servicing their mountain of debt rather than investing in their ski mountains. Peak needed a buyer. While it's possible that this...

    I was at Hunter this Tuesday and Scotty’s was closed. Only skiing weekends otherwise this year, I almost forgot how good Hunter is on weekdays.

    The Flyer was up and running for the first hour of so of the day, but icy slushy precipitation is not good for detachable lifts -- icing on the cable was creating issues with the functioning of the...

    I wouldn't be surprised if the blue square Way Out doesn't really ski all that differently from the black diamond Way Out. (I don't think that If this project also involves doing anything to fix the...

    As far as lift lines, Hunter was as crowded as I've seen it, except on the west side, where the lines for the quad were manageable. And while Clairs and 35 were pretty crowded, I had a few runs down...

    Yes, the Continental rewards card has become a United card, with similar perks. That's how I ended up with enough miles here to do a 50k roundtrip. I'm also looking to burn off the miles, because I...

    As far as I can tell, United doesn't fly direct to from EWR or JFK to Calgary.

    Go west, (not so) young man!

    Despite not flying much at all, I have enough miles stored up in my Continental/United SkyMileagePlus (or whatever they call it these days) to take a round-trip domestic flight.*

    So, where should...

    If it could have been running, they would have been running it. It's a serious mechanical issue. They wouldn't take their main lift out of commission during the holiday week and doing serious work if...

    Kirkwood is great. Loads of terrain -- much of it steep and they can catch more snow than other Tahoe mountains.

    It's a shame that they're removing this lift, because it is so odd and unique. But I can certainly understand not sinking money into a lift that's due to be replaced and not absolutely essential for...

    I may have used too many pronouns, but I was pointing out that Windham has gotten too popular for their own good. Which is due in large part, because, like Okemo, Stratton and Bretton Woods, Windham...

    I'll put in a couple of words in defense of Windham. It's probably the best area for intermediates in the Catskills. They've quietly been adding snowmaking capacity yearly and can put out a healthy...

    Imagine how sensational lift breakdown reporting would be if that stuck on a ski lift film from last year (or was it 2 years ago?) was a big hit?

    Snowmaking is amazing, but that new trail map looks so low rent. It's not only uglier than the old one, but less clear and accurate. Suspect it's a low-budget stopgap since next year may involve some...
