    It's disgusting those who litter. It is skiing! You are outside enjoying mother nature. Ruin it for others with your stupid litter.

    It is prohibited in National Forests and State Parks.

    Yankee lift was stupid. Half measures don't work. I get they have an alpine slide.

    Can't they just reuse some parts of the Yankee and put in a HSQ to the summit and clean it all up?

    For beginners in NH, Pats Peak >>>>>> Loon > Sunapee. All are good for beginners.
    Loon and Sunapee are much better for intermediate and above skiers.

    What about Okemo? Has superior intermediate skiing. Pulls from CT, NY, etc. Now owned by Vail, a company that could afford to out gun Mt Snore.

    I rode the B lift as a kid. I still remember the ride when I was with another child, slightly older, and we could not lower the bar. So we rode the entire way with the bar up. Terrified.

    Ragged too?

    Waterville could use some capital expenditures to do the planned expansions including gondola. That could help gain back market share from Loon and Bretton Woods.

    Okemo and Sunapee seem like a perfect fit for Vail. Overpriced ego cruising mountains.

    I've been at Sugarloaf when the t-bar was on wind hold. Like 120mph winds at the summit. Mountain closed all weekend.

    I've used my snow blades exclusively for 3 years. They are awesome with 3 and 4 year old kids because you can maneuver around them.

    I did use them a long time ago in Highlands Bowl at Aspen...

    I use a 20 year old pair of rusty Snow Blades instead of skis. It allows me to maneuver around my kids. Better than my long skis. I think the blades are shorter than my son's skis.

    Vail is a publicly traded company. It looks like they had $282 million in operating income and $150 million in net income for 2016 (7-31-2016.) I think they will be ok.
