    My philosophy is that all skis are rock skis. Took my new Kore 93s into sketchy trees at Pico on Sunday. No regrets.

    Loved Killington on Saturday. Several great runs through the trees on Patsy's and a couple of nice bump runs on Stitchline.
    On Sunday, lapped Summit Glades at Pico almost all day. Perfect spring...

    We had the MAX addon last year so skied a bunch of days at Okemo. It's not my favorite mountain, but I had a great time. I don't think that the bumps and trees in the Jackson Gore area are...

    Totally agree, but I've found that many areas have simply stopped trying to describe surface conditions on marginal days, presumably because the Internet discourages unmitigated lying. I've noticed...

    Latest Euro that just rolled out is much colder. A quick look shows mostly snow Kton north. Too early for specifics, and could easily be wrong, but an encouraging sign after showing a much rainier...

    I always mean to make issue a report, but frequently the info is stale by the time I have time. It would be great if there were a very lightweight Web form for issuing TRs that would make it really...

    Makes sense. I also think that there was a perception that travel was difficult (even though I had no issues come up from CT). That may have kept more casual skiers away that would have otherwise...

    One of the things I noticed yesterday at Mt. Snow was how high the average level of skiing was. It seemed that 80% of the folks I could see from the chair had perfect powder and zipper-line mogul...

    Such a great day! North Face woods were sublime.

    Our mantra "Untracked powder in plain sight is a trap" was especially true yesterday. the left side of the trail below was unskiable. We should...

    Seconding West Pilot! One of the best entry-level glades anywhere, and still fun for advanced skiers. Emerald Forest is good, too, but very short.

    Don't confuse West Pilot with Test Pilot. Test...

    Mount Snow was phenomenal today. The North Face trails, especially the woods, were as good as they get. A day for the record books.

    It wasn't a great day for mountain operations, though. When I...

    Basically the same story at Mount Snow today. Woods were amazing! One of the few times I've skied Ripcord without hitting bottom.

    Much of the front face is still untouched. Anyone who attempted...

    You seem to be drawing very broad conclusions about Utah skiing based on just Park City and Canyons (as far as I can tell), which are my least favorite Utah mountains. The Cottonwood Canyon resorts...
