    It's a fair question. I used to think the same way. Basically, there's no concrete evidence of transmission in outdoor settings. Practically all the confirmed transmission are from indoor settings. However, there's a saying "absence of evidence does not equal to evidence of absence" While this...

    Okemo Intel?

    Until they do ("pack out a little"), circulation is slightly impeded. Standing statically for 20 minutes would be VERY uncomfortable.

    Singles Line

    Speaking of my "hardline perspective". I saw a couple examples today. Today at Mount Snow, I was behind a single (on the single's line). A couple came up and the lift organizer asked if he/she (can't tell from behind) was ok pairing with the double. He/she must have answered something like "I'd...

    LOL! I probably do! But I'm perfectly capable of defending my space.

    Mt Snow 20-21 Intel

    Good point. It's not cold enough to need to close the bubble. (besides, I was sharing it with one other not from my household. Neither of us felt like closing the bubble). Though even with the bubble up, it still provides a little bit of shelter from the wind, and the falling snow. I kept...

    Sorry, "play by the rules" and "have less or more tolerance for risk" don't go together too well. One is either by the rule or breaking the rule. People are justifying left, right and center about breaking the rules. It maybe they have more risk tolerance. But they're breaking the rules...

    Mt Snow 20-21 Intel

    Thanks for that detail description. I took the punt and skied Mount Snow yesterday and today. Condition was excellent. Soft fluff here and there, on top of true "pack powder". Yesterday, I stick to Canyon and Challenger. No lines whatsoever. Today, Canyon was down for a while so I had to...

    Read the posts again! It was about a single's line on a triple chair. How the hell can a single be so lucky to be "from the same household" with the double that he happen to pair up???

    Sorry to hear that. But it's pretty natural for people to turn their head when they hear "something". In normal life, that's perfectly appropriate behavior. On skis, that turning head cause the skis to turn in that direction. So you have the opposite of what you wish to see. I think clanking of...

    Okemo Intel?

    At the moment, I'm less concern about terrain. More about lift line wait time and lift line etiquette Right now, the snow is quite good! And I had fun at Mount Snow yesterday. No crowd, no line. I would love to change it up a bit if Okemo is equally uncrowded. But if it's long lines even...

    Looking for recommendations

    Between steep groomers and low angle trees, you can't go wrong in any of them. Hopefully by the time you're heading up, there will be plenty of coverage for the trees... Stratton is not exactly steep. But tons of low angle trees. Mount Snow has some nice groomers in the North Peak area. And...

    Okemo Intel?

    @ss20, I actually skied Okemo one day after the Vail take over last season. Though at that time, I think Vail left things alone. Appreciate the suggestions. Will look for those good runs. My biggest worry is lift lines. I really can’t stand in line for very long in a boot that’s barely...

    Okemo Intel?

    I’m staying up here in VT for a couple of weeks. The house I’m staying is half way between Mount Snow and Okemo. I want to change thing up a little.

    Inauguration!

    No, not the presidential inauguration. Just my inauguration of 20/21 (lift_served downhill) season! I’ve been skiing since December. But not in downhill ski resorts. A bunch in nordic centers, and a couple back country when we had the pre-Christmas storm. So today is the first day in resorts...
