Lots of us here love the place. They have excellent snowmaking capacity. They refresh surfaces after every liquid precip event. Glades vary from tight trees to wide enough to drive a groomer through. The lift is fast but breaks down a lot.
Compared to Wachusett it has less vertical and less grooming but is steeper, has better snowmaking, no crowds, and has glades. Is comparable to Pats Peak in vertical but a much faster lift.
Lodge is utilitarian but works well. Food could be better but has improved over the last 2 years.
I was wrong, GFs showed 870', mine was 890'. Somewhere in the upper 800s.
The Rocket doesn't go to the true summit of 2066' which appears to be in between the current area and old ski area on the side. I had 1970' for elevation but I doubt that is accurate not. What do you guys use for reliable apps?
I've named it The Curse of Ascutney. Been down a few times when I've been there
The worst was their big 14" storm this year when Deadheadskier and I got stuck on it for a solid 20 minutes and they then closed it for the day. It is always stopping or slowing down too.
That gives me a reason to go this weekend. I know mine was over 900', it seems accurate and had Killington at just under 1600' from K1 and doesn't show Tuna Speeds. Prior to the Rocket it is listed at 775' and 823' on TrueVert so you could be correct.
