Don't get me started:)

You guys have to label these, or is this a guessing thread?

MRG, would you believe I took this early in morning in Jan 2010 on my first ever ride on the single chair. I guess I will hold this image in my head the rest of my life as symbolic of my first time at one of the cathedrals of our sport.


A favorite father & son portrait. Standard tourist shot on the way to Mittersill for you Cannon regulars, but special to me because I haven't been back there since it was taken in March 2010.


From same trip, my son at Wildcat, March 2010. I've skied Wildcat only three visits 1995, 2005 and 2010, got great weather and conditions each time:???::



LeMassif, Quebec, March 2008. Mountain/maritime setting is like nothing else I have personally skied. Wish I owned a better resolution camera for this visit. It was a Lord of the Rings type view.


Okemo, VT, obligatory New England low cloud shot, March 2006.

Love this thread, but it should be moved to the Skiing & Snowboarding forum.

Probably my favorite Mount Snow photo I've ever taken! And I've taken A LOT of photos there over the years!!

Late season, early morning, total undercast locked in down low, and the golden bubble cresting the pitch on Lodge over my wife at just the right moment!

I gather there is only one golden bubble chair? Kind of like the glass bottomed car in Whistler's Peak 2 Peak Gondy?

Yup, chair #50, a.k.a. "the golden bubble"

About 15 yrs ago, when it was Mount Snow's 50th anniversary season, in honor of their golden anniversary, the painted chair #50 on most of the lifts that had more than 50 chairs hanging from the haul rope, gold. Their popularity and novelty of getting a "golden chair" still lingers today. So when they were installing the Bluebird in 2011, they were able to get 1 golden bubble as leitner-poma was doing another bubble 6 installation in Sochi, Russia that summer and the Sochi lift is all yellow bubbles. So this enabled Mount Snow to have a "golden bubble" on the Bluebird. And it's still a coveted chair to ride... Just missed it by 1 today as my son and i were on chair #51 during one of our runs today

From the top of Gore Mountain. I have no idea why it’s sideways.
