    I'm pretty confident n.VT will see 7 to 12 inches, but the question is, will 7 to 12 inches be enough to get everything decent again after the "destruction" of late?

    based on pics today from smuggs and jay and the forecasts coming into agreement, i'm pretty comfortable believing that this weekend will have good to great snow in noVT. they got hit hard, but they didn't get reduced to grass the way southern vt did.

    I've now got triple Mount Snow this weekend. Me and my Full IKON were going to be Pico on Saturday and then Mount Snow Sunday and Monday, but I waited too long to get my daughter signed up for a race at Pico on Saturday, and the start list reached its 175 racer limit Sunday night, when usually a race doesn't fill up at all....

    Guess I don't have to worry about driving back from Pico to Mount Snow now in the storm Saturday afternoon...

    I used to think so, but I just got home from Big Snow. From now on I only ski indoors!!! All joking aside, it is a great place to learn. Got the 6 day pass so that my kids can learn to snowboard without wasting VT or Western days. Place was pretty quiet, was there from 5 to 7. Snow was very good quality, only a tiny patch of ice at the very top.

    I agree this would be fantastic, if not for the fact the minimum age is 7 years old, which kind of defeats the purpose for many. For instance, I plan on having my daughter on skis at either 2.5 or 3.5 years old (still need to research that more), but hopefully by the time she's 7 she'd be Big Snow'd out. Though I guess it would be nice to be able to take a 7 year old there in August for a session or two so they dont forget what they've learned by being off skis for 8 months.

    My 2 kids started at age 2, with a couple of weekends at Killington in I think it was called then their mini-stars program (then again who knows if it's still called that today and/or they're still getting 2yr olds on skis as that was 14 and 12yrs ago now... (Feeling old saying that as it seems like it was just yesterday I was trying to covertly spy on them on the carpets at the base of Ramshead!!)

    Both of mine then did full seasonal programs for 3yr olds (cub camp) at Mount Snow, then their 4-6yr old program (Snow camp) and 2 years of their 7+ program (Mountain Camp) before starting on the race team, which is where they've been since (now aged 14 and 16)

    Once they got to age 5 or 6, I strongly feel that they benefitted from the weekly programs, with the same basic "friends" and instructors, as seeing the same faces over and over and having a group of "ski friends" really helped them week in and week out wanting to ski, and even today, a decade or so later, has them with many very close ski friends, who they still ski with and has them still wanting to go up and ski every weekend. Something that my wife and I both truly appreciate, as well as something that opened up a much larger group of ski friends and social opportunities for us as well

    While the concept of settling down and having a "home mountain" where you spend the bulk of your ski days every season at, may seem crazy at certain times in ones life, it can also be an integral part of raising children who truly love the ski culture, which is an awesome thing!
