    I often wonder how certain tree skiing that is right next to snowmaking trails indirectly benefits. And if a keen operations manager ever does this intentionally. When you see those snowmaking clouds kicking up you know some of it's going in there.

    Woods tend to hold snow better in the spring (more shade) so it's not the worst idea in some cases.

    ^woods between powerline and ridge run are always skiable first at k because of the north ridge assault.

    After they blow steins, Christmas Tree woods is usually good to go for the season. At lease on the left side.

    I've always thought ski areas should cut glades on the down wind side of snowmaking trails. "Side Glades". Also a great way to introduce skiers to glade skiing without literally throwing them into the woods.
    2018/19 = 36
    2017/18 = 37
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    Vail grooms some pretty heavily wooded terrain out in Blue Sky. I don't think there's anything comparable in VT.

    I will never stop calling it Murphys Glade.
    so it sounds like you're telling us this benedork gomez guy speaks like he's the utmost authority on shit he knows nothing about...

    Personally I love Sleeper, Birch, and Murphy’s. I love those widely spaced trees. I can see both sides of things here. While I have no issue referring to Murphy’s by its full name, I would say these three trails qualify as trails with trees. Whereas Eden or Deeper Sleeper or Evans Woods, etc. classify as glades. But it’s all good. I like to ski it all. My first choice warm up is birch to sleeper.

    FWIW, of those three trails, Murphy’s is my least fav. It’s because I usually find the bottom to be very scrapey. But I’m picking at nits here.

    Wow! Someone's really butthurt from that other thread. LOL


    EDIT: And I am correct, Murphy's Glade would not be considered a "glade" by pretty much anyone who skis glades. Also, it's a rather wide trail. With scant trees on it.

    We do the same thing. Absolutely love that run. Especially if the diamond sleeper part has some baby moguls.

    That's not true. BG IS the utmost authority on virtually any subject. Just ask him. Big brain on that guy. Tremendous IQ. No one knows more about all the things than he does.
