    Was there Monday. North was mostly ice. Not much on West open. They must have been busy the past few days to get "ideal conditions". Hopefully I'll be back in Feb

    Good to know about BE. Never been there but picked up the Indy Pass this year to check it out. Looking at some time in early Feb.

    Gotta love 15. What can go wrong when you have to merge into 60mph+ traffic from a dead stop?

    Glad I didn't take the Thruway coming down from Hunter yesterday. Hopped on the Taconic and not much traffic at all. Hunter wasn't that bad FYI. Definitely icy but not as crowded as I expected. The...

    Haven't been to Hunter in many years and was thinking about it for Monday MLK day. I may just suck it up and go with the flow and deal with the crowds. I'll wait till Sunday to see the trail count

    Yes, I think you are right Edd. I did enjoy the part about needing a license to sell lift tickets. Most likely translates into another business fee that will increase every year. Ugh

    Quick update: Epic resorts are exempt. They are not sure about Ikon, Indy. I don't think this will pass anyway. Doesn't Sununu own Waterville Valley?

    December is such a crapshoot with the weather, even that far north. Was there about the same week you are going a few years back and it sucked. I've never had an issue with the crowds though, like at...

    Yeah I just picked up this pass yesterday mostly for Magic and BV but Black looks good too. I haven't been to any of the places on this pass ever so it will be a good way to explore a bit.

    I've done 30+days at K for the last 13 years. It's a great mountain with terrain that will put most other east coast resorts to shame. Just have to know how to navigate the crowds. Since I just sold...

    3) Open Glades? My favorite is off to both the sides of the the Stash. Pretty much the whole area is a mix of glades on both sides. Probably the closest to "tree islands" at K.

    I think he was trying to stay within the Epic Pass Resorts if I interpreted his question correctly, but I do miss Loon though. Gotta find a free weekend to go this year.

    What he said. Plus Mt Snow is an 1:15 south of Okemo if you wanted to break it up with a day trip down and back to Ludlow. You have lots of good options but don't wait too long to book lodging. Stuff...

    N. Conway is one of my favorite towns but having beginners for 10 days WildCat and Attitash may be challenging. Just my opinion. A lot depends on the weather too and how much terrain will be open....

    It really targets the daytrip or overnight crowd that skis less than 10 days per year. And they have many choices where to ski. 9% will be enough to make some ski elsewhere...
