    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    It's basically all beginner/access stuff. To me, beyond Ridge, it's of little interest.

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    No, the Canyon trail is essentially the last 2/3 of the run from the top. Cascade dumps into Canyon which runs down the Main face to the base where the BB lift is....better stated, yes you will be able to ski/ride top to bottom

    Interesting their post doesn't note LJ as open even though they've been blowing on it

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    I think I have this logistically correct....when I hiked past the top of the new Sundance lift last week on way to summit, it looks like offload will occur after a 90 degree rotation (vs straight off like old lift) which then points you toward the top of Shooting Star. If so that means you'd cut...

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    As a lift structure novice (don’t flame me) I’m curious, is the rack finished or does it get some type of yet to be installed covering to protect them?

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    I can back that fact up by DrJ as its sitting in our garage up there....havent been to VT since April so no idea how "golden" it really is but I'll post a picture when live.

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    A couple of comments: firstly I forgot the old H-Metal double is now rechaired with triple seaters, a nice lift project side bonus that will pay off on those wind hold days when it is the only lift running. Yes, DrJ certainly looks like the new Sunbrook base is kicked over enough that it...

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    Bigger question now is whether Coops will get a refresh and be open??....that place is a key hide-out

    VAIL SUCKS

    Funny you mention hiring/job fair.....I live about 15 minutes from Ski Sundown in CT and the last few years, I have Vol for my kids school "ski night" thus putting me on their mailing list. An email came thru earlier promoting upcoming hiring fair, on the spot interviews and work perks.

    snow tires for 215/65R16 tire size?

    Ok, with that info and responding to a previous members comment about running snows year round, no chance. Your actually driving a fair bit and true snows will get eaten up after 15-20K miles of warm weather driving. Just bite bullet and get yourself a set of Mounted, highly rated winters on...

    snow tires for 215/65R16 tire size?

    With 45K on the ODO, how old is your car? Let's get an understanding of how many miles your driving annually before you wear winters year round.....they are super soft and will get eaten up quick in summer.

    Drought?

    As a counter, I view Zoysia as your typical invasive as it knows no boundaries and is a choker. Lots of folks used to plant it on the CT shoreline due to its hardiness with seaspray. Its kinda our version of bermuda grass. An old school guy across the street from me brought a bunch of plugs...

    Limited day ticket sales at all Vail Resorts this year

    This space historically relies on perpetual debt refinance and the banks love them for it. It's just a matter of who's holding the carcass when it fully, finally rots (negative cash flow) otherwise keep passing it around. I hold it for awhile, then you do, then someone else. Further complicated...

    Jay Peak bombshell

    Funny...I think it was Thursday morning and I caught Charlie Baron in a lengthy interview on "Before the Bell" and he was touting his 5 most recent big buys which included Tesla and Vail.....

    VAIL SUCKS

    Heads up on the online auction for the chairs. My kids sorely wanted the golden chair from recent Sundance replacement auction at MS. I was half cocktailed on a boat in Keys when I bid last minute….assumed it was a proxy bid auction but it was a straight bid platform. Ended up paying $1K over...

    i got bored and booked a 2 week ski trip

    Yes, booked. I tend to agree that there is the possibility that flight pricing will drop as a few normalization factors come on line into 2023. That being said, I need to get from BDL to Reno (avoiding ORD/PHL at any cost during winter) so I do want to lock in seats now. If flights do drop...

    i got bored and booked a 2 week ski trip

    Funny, i was bored this weekend to and booked Feb vaca week to Heavenly. With current airfare pricing insanity, the 6 RT tix at $950 each isnt fun....

    Mt Snow 21-22 Season

    Love it. Keep the Smaking expansion going. Logical to pipe a few of "the naturals" in preparation of the new 6 pack dumping people at the top of this terrain off of LJ. Just like they piped more of Sunbrook ahead of the always known to be needed HSQ
