That is a long, tough approach from Lincoln. Much shorter going up and over.

I was originally thinking that Lincoln would be better to avoid getting trapped on the wrong side of the ridge by bad weather.. especially on a multi-day trip. And to avoid having to climb the whole slide at the end of the day to get back home if the conditions are dicey at the top of the slide (cornices, ice buldges, etc.) ... But the more I think about it, the more I come to the conclusion that you don't want to be on that slide with any bad weather or dicey conditions up top (even wind)... and you would probably only want to attempt with a clear weather window either way.

Crotched

Bolton and Crotched especially. I often go past the Crotch and haven't stopped, but due to the positive things I've read about on here, I'll be trying to go this year. I have a friend who rents out a place at Bolton and we are trying to get something figured out this year. I've heard that the terrain is very diverse for its size.

Hoping to ski out west for the first time, too.

Also Bolton Valley is a day trip, and I have the fox 44 card... Owls Head is intriguing. We'll see on that one...

This didn't happen...! It won't happen this year, either. We opted out of fox 44 card, so Gore and Whiteface are not likely at all.

I am traveling from my in-laws' house to Maine today, and my route brings me through Bethel. I will be making the short detour to ski Sunday River for the first time.

I will also likely ski at Ragged and maybe Gunstock with the warren miller vouchers. I've been to each place once, but it's been at least 25 years.

Right where I want to be
I do not have any plans to ski anything new this year. Plan on hitting Vail and Keystone (Keystone isn't my choice but It will be fun anyway) for the first time since 97

I have never seen Middlebury College Snowbowl mentioned so many times anywhere ever. What is even weirder is that it is on my list to try this year as well. Kevin and I know an instructor there through our hanging with Epic Ski folks so I plan to hit it and get a tour.

Going to Telluride in Feb.

Don't really have a third new area though I am hoping to skin and ski Mt Moosilauke this winter.

I generally get 1 - 3 new places per year and though I haven't counted in a while I think I have skied about 90 different areas.

So last season I made it to Telluride but not Middlebury or Mt. Moosilauke. Had an opportunity to ski Middlebury with some Epicskiers but opted for Smuggs that day instead mainly due to precipitation that was trending colder and whiter farther north. Would have been a great year for the Moosilauke tour...for some reason I did no At skiing last season but a lot of XC closer to home.

This season I am adding Aspen and Snowmass for certain.

There are some friendly bump runs and pretty glades at Keystone.

I think I am going to get two days at Telluride in late Jan before Aspen. Never been there. What were a couple of highlights for you terrain-wise? I know I hope to get into Revelation Bowl on a clear day when the scenery pops.
Not my pic:


I might get to Deer Valley for the first time this winter, but not certain yet.

My son was at Keystone yesterday and the night before. Today he was at A basin.
