    Count me as someone who has little desire to return to Vail. Been a couple of times. I was underwhelmed by both the mountain and town in comparison to other areas I've been in Colorado. Is it...

    My experience at Cat only dates to 2005 when I moved to Portland. Grew up skiing in VT pretty much exclusively. 2005-2012 I skied Cat 2-3 times a season. I've been a pass holder at Cat since 2012...

    Really the only trails over the past 5-6 years that haven't seen snowmaking are Upper Kachina and Wilfred's. My understanding is the pipe is busted on Wilfred's.

    I'm sure ASC probably made more...

    They were good about not grooming Grand Stand or Kachina last year, though they never made snow on Kachina. Lower Ptarmigan also has been left to bump up.

    I've lobbied for years for them to...

    As mentioned. Cannon would be my Sunday choice. Easy commute home down 93. Mix up Saturdays and Sundays between BW and Cranmore.

    Now if Vail fixes the triple, adds a substantial amount of...

    3 vs 1.

    Personally, if it was me; I'd be one of the folks who just stayed at Wildcat. It's my favorite overall skiing experience in New England. Unless Vail really screws the place up, I...

    I think Vail either keeps both Attitash and Wildcat or dumps them both and here's why.

    A. Wildcat is the most efficient and inexpensive to run 2k mountain in New England save for MRG. 80% of the...

    Yes, taking the short cut. It's 20 minutes to get exit 8 on 16 in Dover for me. A little less actually. It's probably about ten minutes from the Portsmouth traffic circle there.

    If by barely over an hour you mean 1:45, I'd agree with you. My best time from Newmarket to Attitash is 1:35. Wildcat 1:50. More commonly it's 1:45 and 2 respectively. I tend to drive 10 to 15 mph...

    I think the key word here is "local".

    It's a recognition of who typically will be buying the pass and where they are going to use it. It gives full access to lesser properties, often more locals...

    You are probably right. That will be interesting to watch. Also interesting will be to see whether Vail or Alterra implode like ASC and Intrawest before them.

    Replace Bobcat at Cat with the triple and put in a conveyor. Would be a nicer ride for the racers and intermediates that use that pod.

    Answer: snow removal budget and the need to use it is a fraction as often in NJ as is in VT. I'll also throw out that NJ has far more commerce to support on it's roads, so the demand for better...

    Pretty much the entire length of the ski route from Spruce to Sterling is the Long Trail.

    I could see the horse transfer getting approval before the carpet or snowcat options. That would be very "Vermont" and hard for environmentalists to block.

    I'd take those prices as owners hoping that overzealous speculators might take the bait thinking the Mountain will come back to life.
