    Gore and Whiteface Tickets

    I'm pretty sure that at one point not too long ago, you could ski Gore and Whiteface on the same ticket. Is that still the case? If I buy a 2 day ticket to Gore, could I drive to WF for the 2nd day?

    "Backcountry" in Auburn, NH

    The are some sand piles at the end of my parents street that have been there since I was a kid. I used to ride my bike down them. They're still there, but they haven't been accessed in many years. There are trees growing on them now where they used to be bald. Regardless, I figured the...

    Deleted Week

    Apparently in order to move forward, sometimes we have to go back. It looks like a week's worth of posts are gone. And the keystroke thing is still happening.

    Pro skis

    Just a random thought I had. Do you think a pro ever hated the skis a company made for them? Like what if Chris Benchetler thought the Bent Chetler was too stiff, or not damp enough? Would he still have to use it all season? Or just when he's being photographed, and the rest of the time he'd...

    Minimum Number of Ski Days to Justify a Move

    What's the minimum number of ski days that you could justify moving to a new part of the country? Personally, it would need to be more than what I'm currently skiing, so it's not a high number. I'd say 30 is a nice round number to start, considering my mid week skiing would be pretty limited.

    Buying Sight Unseen

    I'm looking to add a powder type ski this year. This would be used anytime I go out West, and hopefully an additional 2-3 days in the East. Cost is #1, but obviously I want to try and not settle for an inferior or inadequate ski. In addition to soft snow, I'd like something that is versatile...

    St. Bear's Summit County Tour

    Today was my first day skiing outside of the Northeast. Went to A-Basin, they got 4" overnight and it snowed most of the day. I got a strong Wildcat vibe from the place, which is a compliment. Only got to take 1 run down Montezuma Bowl before it was closed due to winds, but everything off Pali...
