  • County Delegation Denies Gunstock Borrowing

    As many know, Gunstock is owned and operated by Belknap County as it has been for decades. Well, it appears that some members of the delegation feel that the county should not be in the ski area business, and for the first time enough of them voted against Gunstock's annual request to borrow funds for off-season maintenance and preparation for…

  • WCAX Covers Stowe: Circa 1990-1991

    I recently found on YouTube WCAX's special "First Republic: The Fourteenth Star" Program for Lamoille County. In 1990-1991 WCAX went around the State and covered each county with highlights and stories from each. In this video, they covered Stowe's early season skiing (at 10:14) and snowmaking operations (at 32:30). Great video from 1990 with some real characters and a lot…

  • Poison ivy spotting

    Article I just read with some basic info and some small hope for future treatments. https://www.npr.org/sections/health-...ruins-your-sum I’ve had it twice, once from hiking in Sequoia National Park in CA and another time after my vehicle broke down off of 495 in Mass. Both were awful for me so I’m keenly interested in not catching again. Since the CA incident, I’ve…

  • Jay Peak / Burke Sweepstakes

    With both expected to be sold before the new season and the recent dominoes falling I thought this would be interesting to discuss. I have to stick with my original gut feeling of Vail (I originally said this at least 3 months ago). But definitely a case can be made for quite a few companies. Edit: Have to imagine Vail…

  • Boyne, Peak, Powdr, Fairbanks, and Vail

    So I was over on wiki looking at the skiable acres for these companies and included Fairbanks although those resorts don't really operate like sister resorts because the relationship is a little strange. Here's what I got... First the resorts I looked up and companies Boyne- Sunday River, Sugarloaf, Loon Mountain Peak Resorts- Mount Snow, Crotched, Attitash, Wildcat, Hunter Vail-…

  • CT/NY/MA Bootfitters and when to buy

    So halfway through this past season my boots starting really hurting me. I took apart the boot and checked the liners, shell- everything. I tried putting in some more padding where the shell was on the "pinch point" I had pinpointed and that did nothing. I was on the couch this spring after skiing and I had my feet up.…
