New resorts will be announced on Monday. Any guesses?
I'll go with Bosquets.
Jay would be wild, having jay and cannon on the Indy pass for New England is fantastic in my opinion, my opinion and twenty dollars gets you a coffee at Starbucks, mostly the twenty bucks though,lol
My gut is telling me its going to be Bousquet due to the Berkshire East/Catamount relationship but Jay or Smuggs would be sick. I've already booked my trip to Cannon/Black. Trying to fit a day in to check out Pats too. This Indy Pass thing is working out pretty well.
Bousquet does seem to make sense. Not a bad little addition, even if not on the same scale as Jay.
It is not, Storm Skiing Journal is the announcement venue tomorrow (Storm Skiing Podcast) and Stuart will have a Podcast with the resort GM after the announcement. I'd say that confirms an East area and a fairly big one if he is fired up to send an email today baiting the announcement tomorrow.

What he said. Indy pass and Storm Skiing are making a big deal out of this one. So I assume we have to be on a par with the best of the existing Eastern mountains. I would say the best of the existing pack is Cannon. So who stands up to Cannon? That could only be Jay Peak, plus JP is hurting right now because of border closures.
Could also be Smuggs.
Not impossible. However, based on the hype around this, I would still say Jay Peak. Jay Peak is a bigger name and in the same class as Cannon. Smuggs is good, maybe even as good as JP, but it doesn't have the same sex appeal (blame their marketing dept. for that).
Hey, I've been wrong before. The addition of Smuggs would be a nice incentive for Burlington skiers to pick up the pass.[/QUOTE
Jay peak is way above Smuggs in my opinion, Smuggs is like skiing the old Bousquet but on a big mtn.
