    Killington Trail Expansion

    Do they cut their losses and bag Bear and/or Stage I this year? Open Bear but only the Skye Peak side? Open every mountain but only core trails? None of the above and blow their snowmaking budget out the window if weather cooperates? Discuss.

    Ragged 3/21/2015

    First time I've been to Ragged in years, which is sad considering I only live 40 minutes away. Long story short I grabbed a $19 ticket from Liftopia and went for the afternoon. Couldn't ask for a better day, 40 degrees and sunny. I might have some questions for the regulars at th end. In Summary...

    Whaleback 2-1-2015

    Things looking better at the Whale. A lot opened up with the last storm - with only Jonah's, Jawbone, and Face still closed for major runs. Fluke and Blowhole are skiing awesome on natural snow. Snowmaking is ongoing on Scrimshaw as they finished Middle Spout today and it opened up. Face is...

    Whaleback Sat 1/4/2013

    Great to have the mountain back open. For anyone who has never skied Whaleback, there is much more than what you can see from the road. It is small, but skies and feels very much like a Magic Mountain. Great atmosphere, trees, steeps, etc. New management is making effort to make more snow...

    Ascutney - Crotched HSQ

    Any word on things happening here? I saw the sale was finalized in February. I would think they are going to need the entire construction season to remove what's at Crotched, disassemble the lift at Ascutney, move and install it at Crotched. Clear summit trails, install lights and snowmaking.

    Learn to Snowboard

    Pretty much "mastered" (if you want to call it that) skiing at this point and interested in learning to snowboard to mix it up. I am not interested in renting because I like to have my own gear. Would a smart thing to do be to wait until the off season / end of year and buy some cheaper freeride...

    Mount Snow 1/18

    A surprise 4 inches at the bottom and 8 at the top made for quite the day at Sneaux. Got a front row parking spot at Sundance Lot even at 9 am. Temps were in the 20's all day. Weather changed from snow to partly sunny as the day continued. First run was down South Bowl, with knee deep freshies...

    A new ski for me?

    I am in the market for new skis this season. I currently ski a 178 Volkl Pro 724. I am 5'10" and weigh about 200 lbs. The ski is too long for me, but otherwise I think this is the type of ski I am looking for. I want to be able to ski bumps, carve, and ski crud. So I guess I am looking for an...

    New Boot recommendations...

    Somehow I got talked into buying a brand new pair of Technica Race Pro Diablo 130's a couple of years ago. I have always been a racer, so I wanted something that would perform. Unfortunately, these are the most uncomfortable things you could ever imagine. I ended up going back to my old boots...
