    Sugarloaf first timer

    Agreed, by no means was suggesting to stick to groomers when conditions were good. Just stating when conditions are limited to groomers there are worse places you could be than Sugarloaf.

    Sugarloaf first timer

    I actually enjoy Sugarloaf when limited to groomers as compared to other mountains. Cruising down timberline (the trail) can't be beat when the view is clear. Do a full run on narrow gauge from the top. Non groomer stuff, check out all the tree shots off spillway xcut. And not sure where you...

    Sunday Options

    I like them both, I would give the edge to Black Mtn because of the glades and the runs feel slightly longer/more sustained. Abrams does have some good steep stuff on the skiers right side if conditions are good. Price can't be beat at either. Can't speak to current conditions. Hopefully the...

    Lifts that are never open

    Rode the village double a few years ago ( I want to say the last year of the spear triple). The line for the 6 pack was too long and I was too lazy to walk to the triple from the lodge, so the double was a nice option.

    Best and Worst Parking at Ski Resorts

    I find sugarloaf's parking lot shuttle to be fine, just sucks its a pain to go back for beers, but stash a small cooler pack in the lodge and keep a few in the jacket.

    Beginner Skiing out West

    If they have no money issues and want the disneyland of skiing experience, Vail is actually pretty good for beginner terrain. I was out there last winter for a day with my wife is a high end beginner snowboarder. (well we dropped her in a lesson, money well spent). What was nice is that the...

    Iceland trip

    Went there in September a few years. Stayed in Reykjavik and did day trips out. Snorkeling in the Silfra was really cool. Look that up. Did the glacier hike, some white water rafting, and a hike to hot springs. Also did the blue lagoon, but much preferred the natural hot springs better...

    Random Beers

    Otter Creek Fresh Slice White IPA. Really enjoying the stuff coming out of Otter Creek with Brew master Mike. They sell mix 12 packs, so its great to mix it up from the standard IPAs.

    Cannon Lover's Thread

    Debating doing the same. Haven't used a sick day yet this year, going to runout of time soon. Just worried it might not get warm/sunny enough to soften all over.

    Best West Coast conditions (February 2016)?

    I've had good luck with preflight all times of day. Never had to wait for more than five minutes at the terminal.

    More snow in Egypt than NE

    There is a ski area on Mt Hermon, not unique for that area of Israel to get snow.

    Sunday River 12/12

    First day out on the season. Didn't get onto the hill until noon, but 4 plus hours was plenty. Surprisingly good spring-like conditions. I'll take soft bumps in Decemeber if that's what this weather wants to do. Spent most the day at Aurora doing Airglow and Northern Lights. Right stuff and...
