    Haven't got the Nov issue yet, but I agree about the quality dipping a bit, but also loved the Deep Thoughts article too.

    Holy Cow. Waiting 5 weeks for photo op? You have much more patience (and memory) than I. I agree with Admin. Don't leave us hangin'.

    Dec 30st - Jan 5th, Eastern Trip.

    My only thought in avoiding the northern latitudes of Quebec had been that it can be bitterly cold. I have spent a few days at Tremblant around Christmas where the temp was -30C, which is way too cold for enjoyable skiing. However I do realize that colder average temperatures could mean the...

    Dec 30st - Jan 5th, Eastern Trip.

    Ok, time to get out your crystal ball: Where's it going to snow that week??? Just kidding. I've got a week, and 4 friends, intermediate to expert, and we're heading east. We've been thinking about trying to find a single place to stay for the entire week, but being able to visit between 2 & 3...

    Killington Bond Passes, ASC and Powdr Corp

    That synopsis seems pretty clear, and would indicate a very strong inclination to get things financially on track before doing much else to the resort. It also shows that they have created a clear mandate to make more money from a smaller core of visitors. The devil is in the details though...

    Killington Bond Passes, ASC and Powdr Corp

    I would agree that from a purely legal standpoint this is entirely justified. It looks like it would even make sense economically, since you don't have to give away a service your company wasn't paid for in the first place. However, the optics are terrible on this one. It looks really bad when...

    Your 2006-07 Ski Day Count

    That's not the issue, my wife was very much in favor of me taking a week with a friend to head up to WB this month (report still coming). The biggest issue is that anywhere within 2 hrs cost about $50+ and has 700 vert or less. It's hard to justify 10 local days when that would get me half of a...

    Surprising Jackson Hole 2nd Highest Skier Visits in 2006-07

    I'm stunned by this as well. I never would have guessed that less snow and no tram would have resulted in more skier visits this season. I suppose that Tony is right, no such thing as bad publicity...

    wb springtime

    Yeah, I've never been to WB when the bottom half was open (well, technically there was a ski-out on Blackcomb, but it was a ribbon...) and that doesn't matter one bit. There is just soooooo much terrain. This week will determine when & how long I'll be out there.... :lol:

    wb springtime

    I was thinking about coming out sometime during the week of april 12th. Any ideas if a) most of the crowds will have left by or b) there will be a zillion people due to the Telus WSSF and c) if the long term weather indicates freeze-thaw into the alpine regions? Every time I got to whistler in...

    Tremblant, QC - January 20, 2007 - brrrrrr

    I used to use those chem packs, but my hands & feet would start to sweat, which would accelerate the chemical reaction, making them hotter! Now I just take breaks when I'm cold.

    Tremblant, QC - January 20, 2007 - brrrrrr

    These are also some of my favorite, because MCA, Banzai & "the censored run" are all narrow, and frequently get missed by 99% of the skiers. They're also nice and challenging. CBC is also a lot of fun in that respect, given that it's longer and narrow, and not even straight. However, I would say...

    Global Warming and Skiing

    Amen! They can't have thier cake and eat it too. (But I'm biased: I'm a huge proponent of windpower.) Agreed. I see why people are opposed to them, since most of their exposure is the sooty, belching transport tucks and local buses, but VW has been making (what I judge to be) reasonably clean...
