    It is a great mountain. It can get quite busy depending on when you show up. You will probably be pleasantly surprised, especially considering the exchange rate. For a first visit, consider staying on location in the Village.

    Hope I won't be throwing away a Bolton 4-pack and cheap Mont Sutton passes this year though.

    Looks like Jay and the VT upper spine and K-Mart for the rest of the year.. we'll see.
    Just drove slightly north of Mt. Sutton. It looks bad. Really bad.

    If anyone wants to set up a Plattekill Relief Fund I'd gladly contribute.

    From lunchtime, complete with Eye on the Sky weather audio (Old Center Road video).


    The roads were closed off so I couldn't see the worst of the flooding in St J Center.

    I might go next weekend depending on how the Sunday/Monday and midweek storms play out. It will probably be mobbed I imagine what with the break?

    It will be busy over the week-end for sure. Ski conditions have only been good for 12 days north of Montreal so i would assume a lot of families have canceled ski trips and are going to Cuba so it might not be as bad as usual.

    Here's how to manage Tremblant on a busy day:

    - be there at opening
    - go straight to North-Side and stay there until more people show up (10h30 typically)
    - head to the Edge
    - have an 11h30 lunch.

    From then on, look at the info on top which tell you waiting lines at each lift.

    I do 80% of my ski season passes / vacation planning in advance with deals at the Boston Ski Show.

    It's actually $15 tickets to Orford, Sutton, Owls Head and one more around there, maybe Tremblant.

    Tremblant ain't "around there." Bromont, perhaps?

    Bromont Sweet Tickets are $49 CAD for two. Good any day of the week. Heck of a deal.

    I really liked Orford, but they took it on the chin with this storm.
