    The "Sugarbush Thread"

    Tomorrow has pretty strong wind from the west. Which lift are less likely to be affected from west wind in your opinion? Trying to decide whether we should go to my Ellen or Lincoln peak? Thanks

    Big Sky

    Yes, the top to bottom bumps at lone wolf chair is good. There are 1-2 tree runs off ramcharger and swiftcurrent are fun. Some runs off sixshooters are fun. I guess part of the reason I didn't find it memorable is that I skied Alta/Bird right before and after, both are fully open with a few...

    Big Sky

    Well, we hired a guide to show us around for a whole day. He had 11 seasons at big sky, skied every run there. He showed us all sorts of powder stash, and took us to some challenging terrain that was open, including a headwater chute, and a line from lone peak. That probably should be considered...

    Big Sky

    Bigger version of Sunday River! This is so spot on for Big Sky (minus lone tree/head water of course). Haha. I heard the best way to get vert in one run is to go from lone peak to north summit field to great falls all the way to madison base, which seems to be a good option when things are open.

    Big Sky

    We skied Big Sky right before new year. Planned to skied 6 days but cut the trip short to 4 days and drove back to Utah. When we were there, almost everything else was open except Lone Peak and headwater area. Lone peak had only one way down and headwater had 3 chutes open. I have to say that...

    Revelstoke lodging recommendations/reviews

    Just came back from Revelstoke. The drive from downtown to ski resort is short (8 minutes) and the road is very easy to drive. Parking is plenty and no crowds. So there is not much benefit to pay more to stay at ski resort. There are a lot of reasonable priced hotels and vacation rental in...

    Flight conundrum, non-stop vs connection, with a twist

    Good decision that you chose Cathay. When possible, I go out of my way to fly them, they operations are leaps and bounds better than US carriers, better flight products too. The odds that you get delayed because of their own operation is super low comparing to US carriers who frequently mess up...

    Alta, No kids on powder day, 12/22, 12/25, 12/26, 1/5

    Already missing SLC skiing. I've left just a week and it snowed 50" more. Amazing place.

    Alta, No kids on powder day, 12/22, 12/25, 12/26, 1/5

    Excellent picture! I am always impressed by how good those instructors are. Had to be on my A game whenever I took classes. And normally I would be wiped-out by the end of the day. Still a lot to learn!

    Still catching up processing photos and videos of the 18-day ski trip to the west. Here's Alta: 12/21 - This was the 7th day of the dry weather. So naturally, the condition is hard pack. Thanks to the amazing early season snow. The base is deep (~60") and almost everything is open. As this was...
