    Ski Guides

    The future of American Skiing Company

    This should be a fun topic. How long will ASC remain in business? From what I have read on the internet, I give them 6 more months until they go under. Even more important, is what will happen to the resorts that they own.

    Sugarloaf conditions

    Has anyone been up to Sugarloaf in the last week or so. By the looks of the ski report and the trail count being reduced from 68 trails to 43, the mountain must be in poor shape. Im just wondering if it is worth the 500 mile drive. Is anywhere in the east better right now for a vacation next week?
