Huge advantage during seasons like this one given their geography and elevation

Take a look at Saddlebacks report, 100% open. Haven't made it up there yet this year but crazy how different even Saddleback and Sugarloaf can be from one another given the proximity.Sugarloaf is currently reporting 439 acres while killington is showing 381 acres. Were you skiing mostly natural or has boyne built yet another omnipotent snowmaking system at the loaf?
Pretty sure Saddleback base elevation is significantly higher.Take a look at Saddlebacks report, 100% open. Haven't made it up there yet this year but crazy how different even Saddleback and Sugarloaf can be from one another given the proximity.
2120 feet vs 1417 feetPretty sure Saddleback base elevation is significantly higher.
They are manning the SR sports closets (tooo small to be called stores IMO) in each location. I imagine if you had a CS issue you could go in there and they will call someone for you but front facing CS is really only at south ridge.Killington got rid of any in person ticket purchases but the Guest Service desks are still staffed at all *5* base lodges for folks that have buying issues or questions. Is there anyone on staff at WC or Barker like this or all gone?
That's because almost no one skis to Sugarloaf's actual base. Superquad is a good 400' vertical higher than the bottom of Snubber. Loaf really is only 2400' very of so.I didn't realize it had that much higher of a base elevation. 700' is significant
It is although that includes the massive runout of the Snubber lift. It is a very flat real estate lift. Sugarloaf's base village is around 1800 ft.I didn't realize it had that much higher of a base elevation. 700' is significant
Agreed. Most of the blue/black terrain at both mountains is about 2500-2600 ft and up.I think Saddleback also gets slightly more snow. Maybe the large lakes locally add some juice. Also, most of the skiing at SB is really above 2500 feet elevation. Only the beginning terrain is below it. The mountain also has less exposure and doesn't get pummeled by wind nearly as bad.
Both seem to be having the best seasons of anywhere in the East this season
Stephen Kircher’s son Everett’s company. He is very talented.Interesting. "Kircher Concepts" doing mountain construction projects and design work. Recognize some of the projects? Must be Boyne is branching out.
