    It's on more % of trails and largely more modern (as far as pipes) than Killington's snowmaking...

    Run a gondola up to the top and it'd be down half the time due to the wind. Run a gondola up to the tree line below the snowfields, and run a T-bar the rest of the way.

    Catamount Friday. 1hr 20m from the house, 4" of new snow today, two solid nights of snowmaking coming up. If all that doesn't fix this rain, temps supposed to get to well-above freezing so it won't...

    I don't ski weekends (til late season) so the crowd escape was never a factor for me. Like I said, both are great mountains, but on a midweek powder day with 100% open I'd rather be at Killington...

    Pico and Mt. Ellen are similar in my book...overhyped but still very very good places to ski. I try to hit both of them 2-4 times a year each. But that said they aren't as good as their respective...

    I'm very very sure it's just an oversight on someone's part and not SB trying to be "scummy". In no way would advertising the walk-up rate hurt SB (in a way I can understand, at least).

    Yeah but lift ticket rates (walk-up) should still be posted. Like every other public single ski area in existence ever. And to be honest I'm tired of hearing the "no one ever pays walk-up anymore"...

    Wow you're right. NOAA being very aggressive. A further look on my part at the models shows it's not really a "torch" event like this was. The way the low pressure is tracking it *could* be not a...

    Exactly. Also I'm sure the home value would be less than someplace that's near a mega-resort.

    I dream of having a house on Route 100 between Killington and Okemo. That's 1,000+ acres of terrain,...

    That is fantastic news for Okemo. I'm assuming the new high speed lift will go down to the Mountain Road intersection (that was always a goal of the Muellers). This will take sooooo much pressure...

    Wow. Given a new high-speed quad will run you...$6-9 million by its self both those numbers are pretty depressing. It's a shame there's just no money in the ski industry.
