    Nice report and pictures Zand!

    Couple thoughts.
    First, Androscoggin glades look way overcut, in the pictures any way. And second, I've given up on pre planned trips to the Loaf. I've been burned too many times. But, spring or powder days are fantastic. These days I wait til the last minute and choose elsewhere if the temps, wind, or conditions are at all questionable.

    They definitely got too chainsaw happy in places on Burnt. Also agree it's a last minute decision type of place. I've probably skied Sugarloaf 50 days in my life. I'd venture to say 30 of those have had wind holds, maybe higher if including Timberline. I basically expect Timberline to be closed every visit. Not a big deal, but if King Pine, Skyline or Superquad are down, it really screws your day.

    I remember taking a cat up to the T. Nothing else running, but it was not worth it with the temps at 30 below. Only frost bite ever.

    Agreed!

    I've been coming to Sugarloaf every year for a week's vacation for the last 20 some years and it's rare not have some of the major lifts on wind holds during the spce of 8-9 days when I'm there. Yeah, Timberline, I don't care all that much unless the snow fields are in play. As to the tree spacing on Burnt and Brackett, I like it. Not too fond of tight trees.

    I think that we out here in the east got sort used to is the idea that what passes for glades at some resorts is just skiing in a forest. Like Kinsman glade at Cannon. When that kind of terrain gets skied out, it's just bumps with trees and stuff sticking out of the snow. Not my cup of tea.

    Oh, nice pictures, by the way. On that note, a question: How does one post pictures so they come out not sideways? I know that when posted from the phone app it comes out OK. Any other way?

    I had to resize them myself before uploading them. Mine were coming out sideways also at first.
