Anyone have any areas or trails they have yet to ski?

Shooting for Whaleback, Saddleback, Platty, and Sugarloaf this year.

For trails, I would love to ski the Tramline at Cannon, planning a few trips there in Feb/March.

Southern Vermont is my target area for this year once past the PA race season. Already hit Bromley and Okemo and will hit them again along with MS, Stratton, Magic, K and Pico. Will get to hit Gore as well. Pretty much got my ticket deals set up already. Never gotten to do South Bowl @ MS so that's on the trail list. Colorado mid April.

If the boys racing season is a success, will be up at Attitash (which I've never skied) the 2nd weekend in March and that would include a day at the Cat.

I want to get back to Magic for a powder day. I want to try Middlebury, Burke, and maybe get out to the catskills. I hope to get up to Mad River Glen for the first time since I was a kid.

I want to revisit Smuggs, liftline in particular. Jay - face chutes (along with lots of other stuff). Cannon. I've been many times, but never since tramline was a trail. I look forward to that. Sugarbush. I've never been when they were near 100%, and it looks like they have lots of good stuff (castlerock in particular). MRG. I will be at the AZ summit for my first ever trip to the loaf.

Rumble is great and there are some great unmarked woods on Castlerock. Paradise is hard to beat there.



Just realized Magic is less than a 3 hour drive from Providence, given there Throwback Thursday deals I guess I will put that on my list for a day trip.

New Areas: Black Mtn of ME, Dartmouth, S6, Middlebury, Jay (went once 6 yrs ago when it was freezing cold/windy and didn't see much of the mtn)
Trails: Tramline at Cannon would be a real thrill for me as well as Liftline at Smuggs----more just to say I did and to see first hand what all the chatter is about.

^Suixide six is actually a decent little hill. IMO it's better than Whaleback (I'm grading on a curve here ;) )

Did a new hill. I did Catamont and will go more. Do Stowe and the Bush for a few weekends.
Hopefully get up to North NH and Sugarloaf Alpine getting together it be awesome.

I love Whaleback...think it skis much bigger than the vertical would suggest. I've read some TR's that suggest S6's vertical is not that continuous. We may go there over Xmas Break and if I really like it would go back later in the yr with a Fox44 voucher (blacked out during xmas week)

It's been a while, but s6 seemed steeper at the bottom like the whale, but more so. It's worth a shot anyway. They used to have $6 tix on weds (I think) way back when. Couldn't lose.

For me, it's Xanadu! Looks like the opening has been pushed back to the 2014/2015 season. I'll believe it when i ski it!
