I stumbled upon the AZ a few weeks ago. Nice to have a spot with lots of east coast info.

I have been skiing for almost 25 years. Two years ago I started to tele and this winter my brand new alpine skis sat ignored in the corner of my gear room.

I ski the Catskills primarily, mostly for the shorter drive (and the past two seasons I think better snow than Vermont). I get a season pass to Catamount for the family. My 3 kids are all under 10 and Catamount is a good place for them. Crowds are small, parking is close to the lodge and the skiing is decent for them.

I put a fork in the season on April 21st at Killington. Skied Superstar in the morning and spent the afternoon making a few trips over to Cascade which had great skiing and made the trip. Everyday after today I am one day closer to next season.

Welcome aboard.

Wappingers Falls, huh? A neighbor...I live in Hopewell Junction.

Howdy neighbor.

We'll hook up for some turns next season.

I went to Catamount for the first time in 35 years this past March...just my luck, I had a free ticket but they elected to close for the weekdays starting on March 13, the day I went. So I wound up back at my home hill, Hunter, for the day.

Never did use that free pass.

Catamount gathering next season! Catamount is a great place to ski. Decent pitch and some nice bump lines. The new summit quad next season should be an improvement. Welcome selski.

Hi folks.

Already posted in the wa and mlb thread....excited to be a part of AZ, been lurking a while actually here and on TGR and I play quite a bit on epic tho I am pretty much lurking there now....wanted a chance to talk a bit more about skiing esp NE skiing which is what I know. This group is clearly all about skiing!

I put up a bit of profile stuff.....in way of intro

Thanks for the warm welcome in the wa thread....

Greetings
I'm a new member here. I thought I just introduce and tell you a bit about myself
I live in Londonderry, NH for 4 years, I'm a Massachusetts transplant but I love the granite state more and more each day. I work as mechanical engineer in Woburn MA. Some of my hobbies include fixing my Nissans, own 3 ,if you go to NISSANFORUMS.COM I have the same screen name and if you have any questions about nissan's let me know, fixing up my house (believe it or not I enjoy it), and most late spring / summer outdoor activies. I'v hiked up a few mountins, Cannon, Monnadnok<<sp, and Washington of course. I try to climb washington 1-2 a year as an annual event with some family and friends. Keep and eye out for my future postings
