    Conditions at Sunshine?

    HI, At Lake Louise this week. Snow is pretty good, but getting thin, and the sunny warmth Tuesday didn't help. Does anyone have first-hand information about conditions at Sunshine before we take the bus over there? We're staying in Lake Louise, so it's much easier to stay here. tia, Tom

    Advice requested - move to Jackson, WY (Somewhat off-topic)

    Hi all, Apologies in advance for a posting in the Western forum for a non-skiing question. My wife and I spent a week at Jackson Hole earlier this month, and to my astonishment, when we returned home, she declared that in retirement, she'd like to spend a year (at least) living in the area...

    Advice on Bruce trail on Mansfield for a first-timer?

    Hey gang, I'm going to Stowe March 8-12 for my first visit there (on skis at least - winter backpacked Mansfield and Spruce in 1975, but that's a story for another time). Anyhow, I've skied alpine for about seven years now, and have probably skied 100 times. I'd consider myself a strong...

    An email from a buddy who's a patroller there: (Verbatim - I didn't fix the typo on the domain name.) Sad news. Tom Dear Swain Patrollers, It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closing of Swain Resort. The business will be listed for sale with the intent of finding an owner who...

    Suunto S6 problem

    I've got a question for you Suunto S6 users. I've had one a little over a year, and on three separate occasions, when I recorded a day-long log, all I got was about 8 or 9 minutes of gibberish. For example, it thought I skied 8 runs for a total 3500 ft, from 8:15 AM to 8:23 AM. The first...

    Killington or Jay conditions later in March or early April?

    Anyone have any knowledge or crystal-ball information about Killington or Jay? I'm thinking of taking a weekend at K the 21/22 March to try a telemark clinic - I thought it would be a good way to try it out. I've skied XC for nearly 40 years, and alpine for 6, so it seems like a reasonable...
