  • Windham – Ongoing Lift Issues – Anyone else frustrated?

    Growing frustration from seasons pass holders and guests paying premium prices for very poor lift experience this season.

  • Loon – 2/19/18

    Saw some advice in another thread that people should go to Loon instead of Cannon. ;) Since I'm somewhat susceptible to suggestion, off I went to Loon today. Turned out to be pretty good advice.

  • The Crotched Mountain Rocket Challenge

    CMVerticalChallenge.jpg Yesterday, I supervised the CM vertical challenge featuring local skiers, Joe O. and Dylan P. and the world leader on the Trace Snow app, Scott H. The numbers speak for themselves. If you want vertical in a regularly scheduled day, CM is the place to go. Dylan and Scott went from 9AM until midnight. Joe quit when he hit…
