    New to You in 2018-2019

    Ok, what new places did you ski this year? For me it was Oak Mountain, West Mountain, and Camelback. Oak was pretty cool. Has to have the slowest lift anywhere, fixed gripped quad. Makes the Northwoods quad at Gore seem speedy. You'd ski out to the loading zone, and wait, and wait, and wait. Luckily there were no lines on one of the busiest days this season. The food was really good. They're new chef was runner up on the TV show Hell's Kitchen. The prices were cheap too. I had asparagus, crab, and asiago quiche with Irish stew, $11. My buddy had lobster mac & cheese, $9.


    We skied West the same day, they were busy before we got there, cars parked on the road. It was pretty scraped off, but seemed like it'd be good with some fresh snow, pretty good pitch. Skied it from 5-7pm.

    Skied Camelback last Saturday. Found out it was season pass holders weekend, so decided to check it out. Not bad, 100% open. I think I would avoid it like the plague, or Hunter, on a mid season weekend.1968225651.jpg

    It was absolutely incredible. Loved the terrain and the vibe. I need to make it a point to go back there on a regular basis. Even though it was back in mid-December, it probably still ranks as one of my favorite days this season. So much more terrain there that I didn't get a chance to explore as well.

    This is my 2nd ski season. So most ski resorts I visited this season are new to me.

    Specifically:
    UT: Alta, Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude, Deer Valley
    CO: Steamboat, Copper
    New England: Sugarbush, Sugarloaf, Sunday River, Stratton

    Out of these resorts, Alta and Snowbird really impressed from all aspects - terrain, snow, easy access. I would like to visit them every year if possible. Steamboat has really fun tree skiing and I like to re-visit in the future. Sugarbush is easily my favorite in new england with great terrain off Castlerock chair. Need to visit more resorts in northern VT though!
