    Yes people forget that in the late 80's early 90's Mt Ellen had a new, state-of-the-art snowmaking system covering a good portion of the mountain. Lincoln peak was extremely limited. It was day and...

    The reality is IF you want to compete with the majors based on snowmaking alone, Sugarbush would have to be able to simultaneously make snow on multiple pods. To me this means at LEAST...

    Yes, I recall that now. It was a fairly rare combo though - drought, cold snap reducing runoff, and cold snap causing constant snowmaking.



    That would explain the need for more on mountain...

    Re; the need for more water. Isn't the pond next to the Mad River enough, at least for Lincoln Peak? Have they run out of water before. IIRC it's 120 million gallons.

    Bingo! What length will affect your skiing more - tip to tail, or the amount of edge on the snow? I say the later. And the more rocker, the less edge on the snow. Which is why my rockered up powder...

    Great idea to combo it up and let everyone enjoy. Can you pass info on the charity? Great to help people get out and enjoy winter.

    Just saw that on Twitter. Well I was wrong - thought they would wait until mid-month, a more substantial cold snap, and a better forecast. It's very aggressive but then I guess that's the point. The...

    Surprised nobody picked up on this. Probably fantasy, too early anyhow, but it is nice to see (especially after todays ridiculous heat)

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Why would you spend significant money to connect to a mountain that by itself cannot justify being open 7 days a week? There would need to be a very significant increase in demand. Until then more...

    I can only comment on Catamount vs Platty.

    2 hours to Catamount.
    Nearly 3 to Platty.

    Give equal conditions, I’d take the longer drive to Platty.

    Wow, text book case of how to piss off your clientele!!!! They need to give season pass holders a “pass” (pun intended) for this year on parking. Only fair way to deal with this.

    If you mean "will not change trail openings or closings" I am curious as to how that happens with a T-bar running? I presume skiers dodging running T's is not the answer.

    Thanks. Val Thorens had been on the radar. Was also looking at Zermatt primarily as I have an Ikon pass, and it has glacier skiing in case of no snow.
