    Does it always piss hot rain right before or on Christmas in eastern ski country or does if just seem that way?

    looks like thunderstorms on the way for most of ski country on Xmas. Fuck you 2020! Yes I know things could change and we'll probably get some snow on the backside. Really disappointing and this might be the only window for the kids to ski this season with VTs travel restrictions unless...

    Big Sky, MT 2/16/20-2/20/20

    Family spent 5 days skiing and riding Big Sky this week. It was a low tide year for Big Sky this season until around February 1st this year and they have received 80'' this month which was enough to cover most of the rocks and open up everything except for the sketchiest chutes off of the...

    So, last year I took the family out west for their first time Feb Break week to soli/brighton for 5 days. Little to no crowds. Looking to move the annual 'out west trip' up to Christmas break this year since it is easier for my work schedule (week after xmas 12/29-1/4). Looking at a few...

    Bolton Valley question

    Never been to BV. Thinking about possibly heading there this Sat. Are they generally aggressive in opening terrain ? I am assuming with 72" of snow this month they could open alot of terrain. Are they the type of place that will err on the side of caution or the type of place that will...

    Magic - 3/16/18 Storm Leftovers and then some

    I drove up late Thursday night. I have been missing out the past couple of weeks and had to get up to see what if all the reports were true? Was it really all time? Never ending snow? I was worried on the drive up. Not much snow on the ground even in Brattleboro. I felt better when I got...

    Stratton 12/31-1/3

    Went up to the VT house hoping for good skiing 1/1-1/4. I usually try to wait and catch the tail end of the holiday crowds and a few days of emptyness after the holidays. But the shit predicted to blow in tuesday put a dent in my plans for a good tues/wed. So had to make the most of 12/31...
