    New England Best on East?

    Sup guys!? Coming from Europe, living in NYC. Every year we go skiing somewhere at East Coast. So far we've been to Stowe and Killington (not counting places around NYC since it's a joke - like 2 lifts, 4 trails lol...). We used to ski all over Europe and understand it's not and can't be...

    Heavy snow a commentary

    Here in Vermont we have had a recent sour weather event that has put down several inches of "sugar sand" over some mighty hard and slick base. (Eastern blue ice) I've had some very enjoyable runs through what could be treacherous if not unrewarding conditions. A soft touch is needed when...

    Stowe life evac

    Okay, I wasn’t there, so I don’t know and I don’t want to be a dick. Does anyone have any info or ideas about why evacuating 150+ people from what looks like a somewhat low double lift would take over 3 hours on a weekend (figuring most chairs were full?)? Weather, staffing, equipment...

    Southern Vermont access alert

    Though I have not been able to peg an online information source, I have it on good authority that the terrain accessible from the "Ridge Trail" between Haystack and Mt. Snow is approved for "selective thinning" and greater "hike to, and ski down" recreational activities. I've looked at those...

    So what would you do with a first timer? (stratton)

    This is a few months away but I'll be racing at stratton and I might take a girl who has never skied or even seen snow before with me. She's expressed an interest in wanting to try it and is naturally athletic. I won't be able to ski with her at all the first two days. So what would you do...
