    I hit Snowbasin on Sunday. Now Brighton & Sundance are the only 2 Wasatch places I havent skied.

    Looking down from the start of the 2002 Olympic Men's downhill on a clear day. That pitch probably only lasted 10 seconds, but it was a hoot.

    New local Couloir for me! It goes much further up from the visable crux in the photo.

    I was thinking the same thing. Also that they are skiing trees in their 2nd year of skiing and skiing off the castle rock chair.

    Yea...that's some impressively quick progression for sure!

    Titus, Owls Head, and Northeast Slopes. Never met a ski area I didn't like.

    Trip to Utah for the first time: Park City and Alta

    After a big year last year, I only made it to 1.5 new places: Hunter north, east and west (got to the main face last April; east because I was attempting to meet up with some beginners I was with) and Big Boulder last weekend (missed out on Jack Frost by a day). This was my first time skiing in the state of Pennsylvania.

    On the to-do list next year is Plattekill, Blue and maybe another one or two in PA. I'd also love to cross Whiteface off the list for a long weekend now that I'm in greater NYC. Magic could be in play, too.

    I hit the Skiway a few times a year. I really like the place. Hit Abenaki a ways back. Whey i say "my list" i mean places I decided when I moved to New England about 10+ years ago I wanted to get to. Some small places like Arrowhead, Eustis, and Kanc are all good places that are important in their own way but my cutoff for my informal list is "would i take a day off work to go there?". So some of the real small areas didn't make the cut. Maybe when I retire I will revisit this arbitrary methodology but I got a ways to go before then.

    Plattekill & Magic are absolute musts, possibly the 2 best sleeper areas in the east. Do not "book" a trip to Whiteface, go to Whiteface only once it gets the goods, most serious mountain in the east IMO, but it will stink if it's been a while since it snowed (i.e. Iceface).
