    100% agree. Recovery is incredibly important. The reason that skiing conditions are often much better in the American West than here in New England has less to do with snowfall (Jay, Smuggs, and...

    I'm sensing some sarcasm here, but I want to reiterate what someone mentioned earlier in the thread: the tradeoff between price and crowds. Weather and price are the two most important factors in...

    Count me in the group that doesn't have a whole lot of sympathy for people who pay walk-up rates. Skiing costs a ton of money. That's always been true, be it today, 10 years ago, or 30 years ago. I...

    Thank you for this information. This is great news. I will do a couple early or late season days at Wildcat, like I often do, given that these deals will remain in place. Next year will be the big...

    So I checked a random date in December on Liftopia, and was surprised to see that the Peak Resorts mountains such as Mount Snow and Attitash/Wildcat have deals posted. I was kind of assuming that...

    I am typically a fan of adding new terrain to our mountains, but I am against the interconnect. If POWDR feels that it is necessary for business reasons I am by no means going to actively oppose it,...

    Right now it's looking like highs in the 50s at Killington for the next 10 days. I don't know what the outlook is beyond that. I'm guessing that we are looking at late October at the earliest. The...

    I decided to pass on the VT 4-pack in the hopes that the Fox44/MyChamplainValley comes back again this year with the same or similar offerings to last year. The two places I want to ski most in VT...

    Lake Louise is about 160" per season, but like you mention they preserve it well. Plus, you get blower pow in the north-facing back bowls, which is where the real beauty is if you're a skilled skier.

    Jackson Hole faces mostly southeast, which is close to as bad as it gets in terms of aspect. You have it exactly right. You might have midwinter conditions late in the season up in Rendezvous Bowl or...

    I pretty much agree. Goat's Eye has some pretty fun terrain. I haven't skied Delirium Dive, but it's supposed to be excellent when it's open. I will say that on a bluebird day, the views from...

    A lot of rain. This stinks. I was hoping to get to Sunday River on Easter, but I will have to wait and see what they have open.

    Yes, the resorts are paying for it. Perhaps they are agreeing to reduced payments from Alterra to the resorts. More likely they are locking themselves into longer contracts with Alterra, perhaps...

    Personally, I haven't skied at Sun Valley, but I have heard excellent things. Uncrowded, lots of vertical, awesome town with a lot of history (the country's first chairlift). The downside is that...
