It looks like another snowmaking window hasn’t been taken advantage of. It doesn’t look like the guns have been on at all. It just seems a bit odd that places like magic are making snow while sugarbush isn’t...
Yup...what tumbler said. I saw guns going on Ripcord yesterday from the golf course cam as well (and posted here mentioning it...but I think that was overlooked with all the Sarah posts!)I think they are on Ripcord. Look at the golf course cam. Temps no good down low.
Truer words never spoken TB. She can't on this forum. TGR is a cesspool - must admit, it can be entertaining at times though. If you ever want ski comedy, read Gaper string. Pee your pants kinda laughs . . .WTF??!!
She must not understand that for about the last 75 years or so skiing and tourism have been essential for the survival of the Mad River Valley. What planet is she on? I also think she might not be a fan of IKON. Willing to bet she has not lived in the MRV for that long.
Someone should have told her to go to the TGR forums to share her ideas. She would have been eaten alive
It was much more visible/easier to see yesterday with the way it was blowing. You don't always see big snowmaking clouds though depending on weather/wind (especially when looking from a cam so far away). I do wish they had a better cam angle that zoomed in on the summit more.Couldn’t see any clouds from the golf course cam. If only their webcams were working. Strange.
Wow. Can't say that I am surprised.This might change some locals feelings towards a shut down. And also second homeowners...taxation without...

A significant number of establishments have been converted to / continue to be take out only (Taco, Flatbread, Stoke Ramen, Lawson’s to name a few.)
Hyde Away, Peasant, Worthy, Toast and Eggs, and the Hostel are all open for indoor dining but capacity has been heavily reduced. Most places had heaters / tents too but I don’t know who or if anyone is planning on keeping that going thru winter. The hostel and Hyde Away both took their tents down a few weeks ago.
It’s been a couple of weeks since we last went out to eat but have been to almost all of the names mentioned above at some point in the last couple months. Everyone’s done a bang up job dealing with the shitty hand they’ve been dealt, safety-wise. Just hope there’s enough folks able to patronize to help them do well enough money-wise. Especially knowing a second round of small biz assistance funding won’t be coming until Jan/Feb most likely.
It is higher per thousand than other places, but as TB says, its the only tax, and what's more important, unless you are on one of the major lakes the RE town estimates are very conservative as compared the say MA. My house would be. valued at least $200K less in NH than here in MA. Maybe more. Meanwhile taxes in VT ( before this proposed increase) have doubled in 17 years in Fayston - a lower tax town than Waitsfield or Warren. Offset ( if you live there) by no income tax or sales tax. You will have higher auto insurance fees because NH does not require drivers ( last time I check with my daughter who lives there) so uninsured motorist insurance is significantly higher.FWIW maybe not. NH only has a property tax and it is pretty significant. But that is the only tax.
Cannon and Waterville both state they are over 4k elevations. (Cannon definitely, Waterville umm...)Heres the dilemma - Like Utah, Greens get more snow than the Whites even though 1500 feet lower - that lake effect and grabbing those Alberta clippers before NH, and of course, outside of Wildcat, most NH areas are lower elevations than K-Mart.Stowe.Bush.MRG.Jay.etc.
