    This. the medium sized pine trees are packed in there tight. Its unpleasant to have to bushwack through that stuff.

    Sure looks good anyway.. I guess the main question is... if you ski this and end up bottom of Slide Brook, can you get a shuttle ride back to Mt Ellen base or just over to Lincoln?


    if you can get to the shuttle to lincoln, you can get to the one to mt ellen.

    Are there issues other than cost, involved in doing anything to the lodges at Mt Ellen (other than usual permits and what not)??? I had heard there were some kind of septic/sewage issue.

    As Hawk and Howie have said, the woods off the Long Trail north toward the Glen Ellen hut are very dense and it is bushwhacking the whole way. Be great if the Google satellite images offered a winter view so you could aim for the white and not the green, but they don't. There is a skin track up from Fiddlehead toward Antelope/Catamount.

    Following the talk a few pages back of lodge expansions and crowding reminded me of the youTube from a few years ago, Hitler wants a Powder Day Sugarbush.... "we'll have to eat standing up in the boot room". One woman leans over to another, "You ski Middle Earth very well". Ha ha. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m6qTOcGTJd0

    The wait is over, folks. Back on snow Friday. Looks like Mtn Ops have done a great job getting ready.

    I thought as much. Very funny lines - she's a keeper.

    Speaking of Jambands... back in college there was a Phish 1994 show at Sugarbush I was playing pretty frequently.
