    Holiday lights thread

    while they're not all Christmas lights, whatever religion and/or traditions one follows, they're all nice to look at! This is aboit 1/2 of my front yard display this evening, I have about the same number of lights on timers I found out today that apparently "succumbed" to COVID since I put them...

    Praises for the EPIC pass reservation system

    Very easy, worked as advertised. Got into the virtual queue when it opened at 9AM EST, was let into the "reservation area" at 10 when it opened, at which time I was about 10000 in line in the virtual queue. Took about 25 minutes until I got the email letting me make reservations. Reserved the 7...

    If only.....

    Had we never heard of COVID-19, based on the weather, and looking over, and over, and over at Killington's webcams today, today would of been one of those May ski days that would of been talked about for a long time to come. Here's to the hope that mother nature will give us a repeat of a...

    A new GM for Sunday River

    https://www.saminfo.com/headline-news/9545-brian-heon-named-sunday-river-general-manager Not too much of a distance move for Brian heading from Wildcat to SR. Got to know him a little bit during his Mount Snow days. Good guy, and knows his ops about as well as anyone in the business! Sent...

    Corona Virus, Mega Passes and crowds this weekend.....

    Going to be curious to see what effects everything going on right now has on crowds this weekend.... I realize that the weather situation, especially Saturday with a freeze up after the liquid tomorrow would likely have effected some of the crowds, but in addition I am wondering if we'll start...

    How many of you have the ski patrol phone number on your phone?

    Just read an account of a Kzone regular who from what it sounds like was one of the first on scene of the fatality that happened at K this past Saturday. One of the things that struck me the most after reading this account, and hearing first hand reflections about how to better help a fellow...

    Mtn loyalist/passholder vs independent/chase the snow week to week.. debate on!!!!

    100% mountain/pass loyalist here (no surprise at all to my AZ crew I'm sure!!) An "Ugly" weather/snow conditions day/few runs on the hill PLUS a fun afternoon plus a few beers with friends, often as I near 50, are a "better"/ more fufilling day than if I'd been out on the roads chasing some...

    12/1/18 Mount Snow

    WOW!! That about sums it up! PERFECT weather!! Sunny, comfortable temps, no wind. Soft, natural snow as the primary surface. Trees in play, early day untracked powder to be found. Didn't even mind the crowds as it was just one of those days where you really appreciated being outside and...

    Storm skiing..... Chasing the snow vs knowing the mountain???

    Just curious what everyone's thoughts are??? Do you prefer to chase where the predicted snow fall is likely to be the greatest, even if you don't know that mountain and how to ski it on a storm day/where the off the map stuff is? Or would you rather go to a mountain that you know very well, but...
