    I'm sure SB is tight lipped about it because they don't want people going in and getting over their head. But the access is open. Just don't expect a map or a rescue.

    I would only go with M.Ellen with the Bash Badge at Smuggs as well. Ellen has good trees and is a good mountain. It just isn't as expansive as some other options. I like a bit more variety and to move about a bit more. Just my preference.

    Huck It, you are looking at the wrong side of the ridge if you think Stowe pass would be great for Teardrop/Underhill. That entire ridge dropping back into the resort is unique and unrivaled in the east for hiking from a resort.

    Decent cliffs or drops back there?

    Thanks for pointing this out and confirming my hopes about that area. =)
    Yup. Pm me and ill send you some video.

    The ridge between ME and CR looks to be about a little more than a mile. Not bad really but maybe there is something I don't know about up there?
    Exactly. Its doable but i wouldnt describe it as "minimal" effort. Maybe its just me.

    I do probably twice that with every Four Pines lap.
    No bushwacking, but its not close.

But, before the Slide Brook chair went in the shuttle busses heading south used to be a bit crowded at the end of the day. So rather than risk having to wait a bus or two we would shoot across the ridge. The Long Trail was almost always already packed down, and the couple climbs in my opinion were quick and easy. To me it was not only minimal effort, it was also a time saver and bonus Castlerock.
    Correct. Doesnt really make sense for me in the winter since i have an lp pass, but ive hiked it in the summer.

    I know that teardrop and other stuff on the west side of Mansfield isn't going to bring me back to the lifts. I'm ok with that. That's what skins and a girlfriend with a car to pick me up is for =)

    I can see the hikable stuff that leads back into the resort from looking at topos, photos, videos, etc. Looks awesome! Hoping I can link up with some of you guys this season. I will sadly be leaving my ski buddies behind in western NY and need to find a new crew!

    Yeah. I'm good with hiking and suffering a little. It's adventure to me!

    I had the ME Plus for two seasons and it is a great value. You get the benefits of a long season because you get early and late season access while ME regular is early only and then only ME. ME Plus gets you 5 days at LP as well during prime season. Best deal.

    As for other comments: Smuggs is good, but long lift lines and slow lift. Jay can be a haul from BTV. No buts about that. 1:30-2 hours in my experience. And Cochran's? Seriously?

    BV: can be good, but short season and flat.
