    AZ Advertising on Other Sites?

    Joined the TGR forum today finally and was looking in a thread about moving to Jackson Hole and came across this gem by Greg back in June! Of course that response was met with some pretty funny replies, which, let's be honest, were well-deserved for that fishing attempt and advertisement for...

    Forum Keeps Breaking - Why?

    I'm sure this is the wrong spot, but appears to be the only section people are really active in... What is the deal with AZ? Today seems like the 1st day it has been working for a few days. Lately it seems like AZ is down more than it is working. What gives?

    Big Sky 1/18/18 - 1/22/18

    Our flight to Bozeman was pretty good - originally we had a connection in SLC from BOS, but got changed to MIN, which makes it about an even leg from each airport. We wound up arriving almost 2 hours earlier than planned which was nice. However, when we got our rental RAV4 and got on the...

    Opening Day 2017/2018 Season - New England

    I know this thread is very early, but I'm already ready for summer to be over and for the flakes to start flying again. This information can probably be found online by looking at past seasons and historical data, but where's the fun in that when we can chit-chat about it? :lol: When can we...

    A Tuckerman Ravine Guide (for noobs)?

    I'd like to pick the collective AZ brain if you guys don't mind as I know some of you have been skiing or riding up at Tuckerman Ravine before. I have not done it before and am really trying to dumb things down for myself. I am most likely over-thinking things, but that's just what I do...

    Easter Weekend - Where Are You Skiing/Riding?

    Who is riding/skiing and where this weekend? I'm pretty pumped about having Friday and Monday off from work for a nice long weekend. We were originally hoping to spend the long weekend up at Sugarloaf with our dogs, but that's fallen through. I think we'll be doing day trips. We have 2 passes...

    New Year's Eve & Day - Crowds

    I can't remember the last time I went out riding on New Year's Eve or New Year's Day... How are the crowds usually on those days? NYE falls on a Saturday this year while New Year's Day is on Sunday and most people have work off on Monday for the observed NYD. It is still a little too far out...

    Killington - 12/17/16

    What a day! A drive that is normally 3 hours long took 4, but it was well worth it. I awoke to a driveway covered in snow and dealt with the bad roads and slow traffic. Unfortunately I didn't plan for that, so we got there at 9 instead of 7:30 for first chair like I had hoped. I'm not sure...

    Weekend March 11-13

    I know its still only Tuesday, but I'm sitting here at my desk dreaming of being on the slopes. When I looked yesterday, forecasts were calling for rain a lot of the weekend, but I'm looking today and it looks pretty clear right now for the weekend. No matter where you're riding/skiing in New...

    Jay Peak - 5/2/15

    First things first - a big thanks to billski who hooked me up with a free voucher in the "Skiing on the Cheap" thread. I had never been to Jay Peak before, so I was pretty pumped to get to try it out for free! Date(s) Skied: 5/2/15, Saturday Resort or Ski Area: Jay Peak, VT Conditions...

    Dates Snowboarded: Saturday 3/21 & Sunday 3/22 Resort or Ski Area: Mount Snow Conditions: 3/21: First thing in the morning the snow was getting a bit choppy. Sun came out, might have hit 45 and was nice and warm. Any of the snow that was choppy early was nice and smooth and easy before and...

    Tuesday March 10th - Sunday March 15th

    I'm basically starting this thread to get the discussion going. Where are the best maps/models/forecasts? A few days ago I was seeing ice/rain/snow for Saturday 3/10, but now I'm seeing snow predicted. 5-8" overnight possibly? Weather Underground is saying snow most of the day Saturday and...

    Closing Dates for New England Mountains - 2015

    I was pondering what mountains are planning to close on what days so I can attempt to make a plan for Spring Skiing/Boarding. I found this site, but it does not seem accurate for all: http://www.onthesnow.com/new-england/projected-closing.html The only ones I know about from hearing on the...
