This sticky'ed thread had less than 60 posts in 4 years. I added a couple of posts to create some summer stoke. That generated a measly half-dozen new posts and apparently that means the thread "has gone into a tangent". This clearly isn't the right place to talk about the realities of NE backcountry skiing. That is perfectly fine. This stuff probably is best left off the internet anyway. Looking forward to skiing this stuff with some of you next winter. And if anyone wants to hike these spots this summer let me know. But no more talking.....

I do not think this thread should be stickied in the first place!

Yup. My understanding from most resorts is any pass is mainly to get the user to sign the waiver form. This seems like the contractor method of giving a quote way too high for a job you don't want.

Here's something:

https://www.skimtwashington.com/

First Annual Mt Washington Backcountry Ski Festival. Clinics, apres, demos. Sounds like MWV Ice Fest for the BC ski crowd.

Seems pretty neat. I was hoping it was something people could just show up that day/weekedn and meet others and have a fun day of back-country activities, but it appears to be focused on courses and education... which is great too, just not something I'd have the time to do.
