    Having at boots that are light and have a walk mode does make a significant difference.

    theres enough room to socially distance a double lift line. I agree it’s not ideal, but no reason not to use the lift. Maybe they’ll have to regulate traffic at the top of the run in if the line gets too long. If they want to save cr for the weekend, I’m personally cool with that, but theres...

    I've only been to Gore a few times and unfortunately, each time the conditions have been abysmal.

    The vibe at Platty reminds me of Mt. Ellen. My buddy lives near windham so I've hit platty for powder days a bunch the last few years.

    I'm always on the lookout for NJ brothers who have the moral fortitude to drive past many lesser mountains to ski at SB

    I think adding the plus pushed my Din from 6.5 to 8.

    I lived in Belleville for 6 days while I was in law school in Newark. Long story. I recalled you had mentioned earlier that you were from my home state. That's a shlep from the shore to SB. Bravo to you.

    you also have to understand that prior to 2005 or so when the gatehouse/claybrook was built, there wasn't much of a base area at LP and sugarbush village was the only game in town.

    I've always made it a point to patronize mutha stuffas and pizza soul, even though they are out of my way. Dino is a great guy as is the guy from pizza soul, whose name escapes me.

    I also had rock skis that doubled as my touring skis. Unfortunately, the bindings suffered a catastrophic failure. So now I have brand new blizzard zero G 95's but no rock skis.

    welcome aboard! I'm fine with the way it is. If the sign says thin cover, its thin cover. If the trail is closed, it must be for damned good reason, and since I pay for my own skis, I ain't messing around.

    funny. I skied sleeper one of those days. I should have known better because my son, who had skied it the day before, and is usually up for anything, refused to go. Anyway, I skied down the headwall and there were 2 patrollers trying to get a pole in the ground where sleeper road meets...
