    Who is going to resurface?

    Today was spring conditions. You could tell the trails they made snow on. They really did a god job with what they had but they really need snow or a snow making window.

    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    I am not sure what this week brought but I found conditions better than expected last weekend. The snow making trails were in great shape. Besides a few wind holds Saturday it was a great weekend!

    Loon Intel

    I disagree on the Governers base area but have a somewhat limited experience at Loon. I find being at the Octogon and hoping on Seven brothers to North Peak to be much faster. The lift hardly ever has a line. Also the east basin trails are probably some of the best on the mountain and the least...

    I slows down the same as the top and bottom. I am not exactly sure how it works maybe two separate line? A top and bottom half?

    Big snowmaking upgrade at Wildcat

    Alta has a HSQ with a mid station that you can load. I am not sure how many chairs would be available on a weekend but I was there mid week in December and was able to do so. They also have a high speed triple.

    Big snowmaking upgrade at Wildcat

    I wonder what the logic was with that. I think there were a few years after the express went in they would still operate the old gondola in the summer. A lift (catapult) like on this map from bobcat up would be great late season too when the bottom is mush.

    Original red and white Cannon tram car

    Weren't the cars replaced on the old tram? If so there would be 4 of them out there. There is this one, NE Ski museum and I believe there is one at Clark's Trading Post. Any idea where the last one is?

    Jay Peak and I are not BFFs.

    I would think the capacity would be the same based on the examples given above. The lift would just have half the amount of chairs and load at the same interval. The line would be longer at the bottom since there would less people on the lift.

    So whats your ski vehicle?

    2006 Toyota Corolla 9 times out of 10 due to great gas mileage. If there is a chance of bad weather I will take the wifes CRV. I usually commute with a ski buddy of mine so splitting gas in the Corolla is not that bad.

    Where do you expect to ski most this season?

    Wildcat is usually the winner for me
