    T4T ..........Toast

    Sad to see this Forum die . It was a great resource for me years ago on my first trip to Tuckerman . The last few years there was virtually no traffic .

    Internet forums have been dying a slow death for the past 10 years.

    A victim of Facebook, I'm told. Though I can't say I quite understand.

    How long will THIS forum last? There hadn't been a whole lot of traffic during the off-season (summer). But even during ski season, its traffic is sporadic. Long period of little to no activity even in winter.

    In the mean time, the cost of running the forum isn't exactly cheap, especially in terms of admin labor. It's not a very profitable proposition for the owner.

    Im not privy to the traffic numbers here, but Vail buying Peaks was a shot of summer adrenaline by my observation. We dont get that every summer.

    Agree winters are slower than, say, three years ago. Id sure miss it if it went away but were not at the T4T stage yet.

    I was up at Wildcat / Pinkham Notch this past weekend. I haven't skied Tucks since I think 2002 but I remember getting on that forum way back then.

    Yep, not much going on there recently. I hit their "slackfest" at the snowfields in 2011. I hiked and skied Tucks the next day. What a great Memorial Day weekend. I'll never forget everyone discussing their weekend plans at work. I was asked what I was doing, when I said skiing, the reply was, water skiing?

    I would miss it IF it goes away. And I hope it won't.

    I'm just saying many other forums had gone away! Telemarktips, epicski, and a bunch of non-skiing forums I used to frequent. One whitewater forum is on its last leg: for sale, but with only like 1 post in the past month (this is prime season for whitewater, mind you)!

    Even forums I still belong to and participate in, traffic has been trending down for the last few years. Some forums I admit I abandoned due to lack of interesting post to read. As a consequence, no participation from me, which doesn't help to bring up traffic. It's a vicious cycle, one poster a time.
