    IMO this and the and the Toboggan Championships in Camden, ME are two of the best non-professional sporting events in the country. Harris Hill is not to be missed!

    Just my 2 cents but I've always found the dining (and shopping) in the Mt Snow area to pale in comparison with North Conway, although there will certainly be enough to occupy you. A better option...

    You keep getting better at this... nice job. They could have brought a little more snow in for you, though!

    Reminds me of the structuring of a very large nursery near me that ultimately went under some years ago. They had at least a dozen separate companies - one owned land, one owned machinery, one...

    Wow. Not to go off topic, but that's not the mountain I was at this year. Used to go about every year for a week before the big buildout. Went back for the first time since then and customer service...

    Interesting. Always wondered about the Q in Q-Burke. When I was up at Jay this year I notice two mug shots of Quiros and Stenger behind the front desk at one of the hotels. I thought at the time that...

    Its still a little far out but looks to be another southern / coastal storm that will do little for interior New England, other than a shot of life-saving cold air. West Virginia may be another...

    CV (the area, not the resort specifically) is the gem of the east. Snow conditions can be the best anywhere east of the Miss. River - but the down side is they can change quickly! They have been...

    I did the same thing with my daughter a few years ago. Stayed in G'towne, skied Loveland and then moved on to Breck. Weekend traffic shouldn't be too bad that time of year, and if it is heading to...

    Not by much and still get the "story" out. I've seen longer (and shorter) that have no point at all. Its refreshing - I hope you can preserve them in a readable format when your kids are grown!

    For the poster concerned with crowds, last Saturday (before ol' Red went down) had some of the longest lines I've seen at Magic. There was even a tour bus in the parking lot! At its worst it never...

    So the OP is part of the reason for overcrowding and poor lift management he complains of. This was the end of Prez week - crowds should be expected. I was there Friday and Sunday. Friday lift issues...

    Between Snow and Stratton, I prefer the trees at Snow and the lift layout at Stratton. Snow is basically all top to bottom lifts. Stratton only has the gondi that goes top to bottom, so folks tend to...
