The new glade could be interesting though the trails should be more suited to beginners/low intermediates it appears...I do hope to get to Pats this year.
Pats is the closest ski area to us. It is a small resort for sure and the chairs are slow which is hard to deal with sometimes, but they have a pretty good thing going. Very well run! My son is an instructor there and our other son's ski/snowboard program out of his school goes there too! As a result we typically do a few days or nights there mostly just to tool around and have some fun - not much of a challenge. Sled Pub is a really cool and the food is generally pretty good pub grub!
I will be interested in how the new trails and chair will be. Have a funny feeling that in the beginning at least it will be too busy over there!
Laps on Hurricane should challenge most people. Considering none of the other night areas in NH have such a steep bump run, I think it's an unfair criticism to say "not much of a challenge"
Considering none of the other night areas in NH have such a steep bump runIf Whaleback ever gets going again and makes a commitment to maintain seeded bumps on "The Face" then I think that would be better than Hurricane. Your point is a good one though, Hurricane is a very nice bump run for a small area.
The triple chairlift is rumored to be a refurbished Von Roll from Osler Bluff Ski Club in Ontario
I still don't understand this investment for a whopping 325' drop, escpecially after Crotched added the high speed quad. They do have some steeper terain, but the lifts are slow!
