Thread: Who is right?

  1. #1

    Who is right?

    Mount Snow 11/20/19: "With 12 trails open and 109 acres across three mountain faces, we’re continuing with the most open acreage in the East!"

    Killington 11/20/19: "20 open trails, which total more than 13 miles. The Beast still leads the East in open terrain this week."



    Could it really be that one is using miles, and the other acres?
    2018/19 = 36
    2017/18 = 37
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    Personally I'd rather more miles than acres of trails so I'd use that metric for "most terrain". Interesting that Mt Snow doesn't give mileage numbers on their Snow Report. K has both acres and miles listed.

    Acres this time of year can be deceiving because usually to inflate the number mountains count open trails as edge to edge, which often times they arent

    Sleazy?

    Or Vail sleazy?

    How does one measure "acreage"? Multiply the length of the trail with its width?

    Until the glades open, it's just trails. Length is more appropriate.

    Generally I'd agree, but not if there's a lot of mileage on uninteresting run out terrain.......
