    Manchester is a great spot, IMO. I dont mind that its a bit of a drive to Mt Snow. Good hotels and restaurants.

    Mt Shasta was a nice little spot in Northern California. All fixed grip lifts but they moved pretty fast and a nice mix of terrain.

    Also hit Mt Rose and Sugarbowl. Planning to hit squaw this month and again over Fourth of July.

    Last time I was there that happened. You're down at the base looking up at this great mountain but you can't get to it- really frustrating. We packed up & headed south to Gore where everything was open. That's held me back from returning ever since.
    Same thing happened 10 days ago but we were at Gore & on Sunday ppl on the lift said they'd come down from WF because everything there was closed on Sat.
    If it's snowin' I'm goin'

    it's really the only consistently interesting terrain in the entire region.
    I'd take Loveland over Arapahoe Basin if I lived there and bought a season pass.

    I'm jealous, missed out on a planned trip to Shasta during one of my low-snow Oregon trips. Oregon is my nemesis. Will head back one of these years with the hopes that third time's a charm. Ended up driving to Idaho on trips 1 and 2.

    My son and I did the same thing. Stayed in Wilmington overnight, cleaned two feet off my car, nothing but bear running at WF. We went to Gore too, but the summit wasn't open. I remember riding the quad being brutal. Be aware you can't ski Gore on a WF ticket, or vice versa, as in the past. I got a WF raincheck on one of those windy days and tried to redeem it at Gore the next season. This is when they were transferable. They wouldn't give me a Gore ticket. I was flabbergasted. I told the lady at the ticket window that I could drive to WF, get a WF ticket, go right to the lift at Gore and use my WF ticket, but she wouldn't give me a Gore ticket for my WF raincheck, wtf? Welcome to NY.

    When were you here? Did you try Mt Bachelor? Huge mountain with the most consistent conditions I’ve experienced. 443 inches so far this year!
