  • New book – Snow Guns Before Sunrise: A Peek Behind the Veil of Ski Resort Operations

    Hey fellow AZers - I just published a new book about ski resort operations which I think will be of interest to many of you. It's a behind-the-scenes look at how ski resorts really run, covering senior management, grooming, snowmaking, patrol, lift maintenance, basic metrics, and more. "Day-in-the-life" narratives combine with real-world anecdotes from industry pros to keep things lively.…

  • Mt Snow – Family Vacation

    We have done a week in March at Attitash the last few years. Thinking of changing it up for a few reasons: we will likely be driving from Crotched plus I hate Attitash. Probably rent a condo in the seasons complex, would prefer the grand but it is outrageously overpriced. Problem is convincing the wife who loves the pool at…

  • Is powder/tree skiing in the east overrated?

    All this talk about driving 5+ hours just to get a few "untouched" runs with mountains opening new terrain after the storm has me wondering, is powder really that great?

Every trail I tried was skiing great with the surface constantly refreshed with new snow. I think they got about 8" of fresh snow during the…

  • Belleayre Chair 7 down?

    What's up with Chair 7? Saw that it went down over the weekend and they had to hustle to open the Super Chief up and running. Looks like it's still down. Anyone know the story?
