    I just read what Stratton plans to have open and was very surprised. 3 TTB off Ursa, 4 TTB off Snow bowl, a full TBT green, and several on lower part of mountain. They will leapfrog Mt Snow and maybe Killington.

    Wachusett and Jiminy definitely arent 3rd tier as far as early season goes. Wachusett had 4 full trails open before Killington was even top to bottom 2 years ago. Jiminy has always been an early season player.

    Berkshire East was definitely a surprise to see open this early though.

    Totally different strategy for Stratton this year focused around the new Snow Bowl HSQ. They might even be able to add a 4th TTB on Ursa with another snowmaking window as a bunch of snow has already been made on Grizzly and possibly others. Stratton is not aggressive with it's snowmaking but does have some pretty impressive capacity when they find the right windows to lay it down.

    Based on Okemo's statement that they'll have 25 trails open, that's probably 5 true TTB (with 2 of those sharing a bottom portion) and 2 TTB at Solitude.

    Ahem. That's the steepest longest widest lift-served trail in the East you're talking about there.

    Neither - both are stupid ways to tell what’s open. Both marketing garbage.

    The acre count is wrong. And even more dumb then miles. At least miles is accurate. Acres is not.

    How about we just don’t lie and say we have “5/60” trails open.
