    I've done the hike and yeah it's quick and easy but that's not the point. I love to lap Outpost area. It's a short run but also a short lift ride. Many quick laps. No boring run-out. I say let it...

    I've only skied Pico on days when there was snow on the ground and only had lunch in the lodge on days when it was open.
    I've only found it crowded when it was hard to find a seat.

    That said, and to answer my previous question, one...
  5. Pico receives approval to connect into Killington water source

    Can someone explain how will the interconnect improve the actual skiing experience at K/Pico? I get the marketing aspect, but marketing fluff and customer benefit are not necessarily linked. The only...

    Anybody skiing this weekend?

    Right now Saturday and Monday look just about as "ok to potentially good" as last Saturday did late last week. And last Saturday turned out excellent.

    I agree that regular use puts a lot of wear gondolas but I think vandalism would be a factor too. The vandal's mind is always looking for something to mess up.
  10. A "SMART" Ski Lift: The Future of Ski Lifts?

    I generally hate vandalism and am disappointed when i see its presence in the skiing world. But the threat of vanadlism helping keep marketing TV screens out of chairlifts is a good thing....

    I had forgotten that the lower parts of LL and Nat'l are separately named and actually rated blue. I do agree with those ratings.
    I was referring to the middle parts of both runs (LL below haychute...

    Stowe - Upper Liftline

    Just keep skiers right, directly under the downside of the chair. If the coverage is deep enough that there're potential clearance issues, then you don't have to worry about hitting rocks because...

    The etiquette of passing (on skis)

    I spent a fair amount of time on traffickey runout trails recently which had me thinking of this topic and thread.
