    Recommend doing the woods off Upper Antelope at MRG before going past Paradise. 19th/20th hole. After a couple turns up top there's a pretty obvious entrance. Top is very narrow singletrack and...

    Reminding me of last season getting first tracks on Julio and Anarchy on a 30" powder day. Difficult was the last word that would have come to mind. I felt like Kirby in Dreamland :lol:

    So I guess stuff like the woods between Paradise and Church that is not exactly on the map but well known enough counts. Stuff like Cannon's Bear Gut or MRG 3 Cliffs etc which aren't on maps and...

    That's true ... you know what really surprised me just now? I checked Mad Riven Glen... $92 day tickets (weekdays, weekends and holidays same price). Geez, that really jumped up! Imagine the day Mad...

    I could be wrong but I think Kingslug is referring to one of the basically 3 ways I'm aware of to ski moguls.

    1) zipper line, narrow flexy skis are best
    2) slip-zip, basically still using the...

    Didn't Mad River Glen say they purchased a few more fan guns this summer (bringing their total to something like four or five)?

    This math may need to be completely redone if they ever decide to...

    I think it's somewhat telling that when I mentioned the high walk up rates in the $120-range several folks here simply didn't believe it but chose to defend it anyway.

    Look, I'd never pay that...

    You're correct as far as I know... I meant to equate the difficultly of sticking to a strictly keto diet to sticking to a strictly vegan diet. Full keto is pretty restrictive and a lot of folks have...

    Well said, I usually wait until 11 or Noon to eat "breakfast" which is more like a lunch anyway.

    This is when I'm working on the computer and sipping coffee (black). For me at least this is very...

    Well they are $120 if you walk up on a weekend and over $100 weekdays, maybe more or a couple $ less, but it's close either way.

    I would say the same about Killington and Stowe. Okemo is right up...

    Maybe the prices for tickets and meals will become more reasonable. Probably not, the only major difference I've noticed under current ownership are price hikes. In the 80s and 90s Sugarbush...

    Maybe true but if you show up in time to ski when the lifts open you'll still be only a few rows away from the entrance.

    I only ever see these overflow lots in use on the way out in the afternoon....

    July and August 2019 were some of the nicest and sunniest weather, with localized rain showers and "sun showers" frequently, compared to what we've had in years/decade. Bluest skies I've seen in as...

    FWIW I was using Ride and Ski Card to get tickets (full day) in the low $40's midweek and low $50's weekends. Looks like that might be good again for at least 1 more year.

    I've been to Pico a lot of times when you can barely find a seat in the lodge all day. I guess mostly weekends, but even on days when the lot is half full that lodge has a hard time fitting everyone...

    I'll assume it goes on sale for either $175 or $199 this year. Either way this is an excellent breakdown, at least in my use case, let's assume I use it for these this year:

    Funny thing, I must have been the first person to order because I got cards #001 and #002 in the mail. Guess what, only purchased one card. This was at the early $150 price too.

    Yeah it's just not that enticing even at $200, considering I'd only use it for Bolton Valley, Berkshire East, and Magic.

    Bolton Valley hands out $29 tickets like candy. Berkshire East I never pay...
