    Patchs?? where are you

    The 1029' vertical is from the 2000 White Book, but perhaps they have not updated the information. <BR>The worst part of the drive into Canada is route 27 to Coburn Gore, its like driving on a one lane roller coaster. Getting to Orford took us 3 1/2 hours last January, and that was partly on...

    Patchs?? where are you

    Frank, thank you for the information on all those ski areas. I think that we will visit Mt Adstock, as it looks closer to Sugarloaf than Massif Du Sud and the vertical of 1029' is decent. How far we can go depends on the weather and road conditions, as most of the area roads are one lane...

    Patchs?? where are you

    According to my brother the conditions were heavy wet snow with 6" new and temperatures around 32F. The Palmer Chair did not operate due to bad weather. The base depth at the lodge was 123"

    Patchs?? where are you

    If you go to the following website: <BR> <BR>www.maneige.com <BR> <BR>This is the Quebec Association Of Ski Areas. <BR>You can find Mt Adstock in the dropdown table, and there is an arial picture of the mountain. I did not see a trail map, but the picture does tell alot about what to expect from...

    Patchs?? where are you

    There does not seem to be alot online about Mt Adstock, I am about 99% sure that this is the next <BR>area that I will visit next season in Quebec from Sugarloaf. Mont Gleason also lookes reasonably close to Mount Adstock, but the area is not listed in The White Book, or any other guide that I...

    Perhaps the "New And Improved" Saddleback would be of interest, nobody could have that out yet.

    Patchs?? where are you

    I would like to add a skie area in Maine, most likely Mt abram, I don't think that I could endure another trip to Big Squaw.

    Killington closing day 5/11/04

    My brother just skied Bachelor last saturday, but the weather was so bad the summit express lift did not operate with the alternate snow,sleet and rain. He skied at Timberline on sunday with 6" of new Concrete snow, but again only the Magic Mile was open. When I skied Bachelor on May 16th 1999...

    Patchs?? where are you

    It is a funny name, and I was pretty sure that's how it was spelled, but I did not want to risk it. <BR>Hopefully it ski's better than it sounds. Marc is there a resort this would be interesting to report on in the area? Perhaps I will visit Camden Snowbowl again, I was there in February 1998...

    Killington closing day 5/11/04

    I agree with you on the long drive from Mt Hood to Batchelor,It took me about 3 1/2 hours. What about Mt Hood Meadows, they now close fairly early also? I remember them skiing into June or even later.

    Patchs?? where are you

    Thanks for the reply, I think that we will be visiting Mt Adstock, as it looks to be the closer choice from Sugarloaf. We may also visit Bromont if possible, but I don't think that I could drive past Orford without stopping by again. I would slowly like to visit all of the Canadian/US ski areas...

    Ski Guides

    Thanks for the information, I guess that most material is now on a C.D or via the internet, but they are not much help when you are on the road. I wish that the White Book was still updated in printed form. I'll just hang on to the 2000 edition for as long as it lasts.

    Patchs?? where are you

    Patrick, <BR> <BR>Thanks for the information, our trips beyond Sugarloaf are for both ski recreation and exploration. There is also another place on the map closer than Adstock called carpidireau or something to this effect???, ever heard if it? <BR>I would not mind to do a report for First...

    Patchs?? where are you

    Frank: <BR> <BR>Is Mount Adstock worth a visit from Sugarloaf? The White Book has the vertical drop at 1029', so it not that much less than Massif Du Sud at 1320' <BR>The guide does not say much about what type of terrain to expect.

    Killington closing day 5/11/04

    I 100% agree with you porter, tradition dictated that Killington was the first to open and the last to close in the east. The extra snowmaking effort at both ends did not cause ASC's financial trouble, poor management did. It was clear that early season skiing was not taken seriously since the...

    Ski Guides

    Marc: <BR> <BR>Is there a reliable printed ski guide on the market right now? I am using my White Book from 2000. Does this company still produce a ski guide in book form, or only on a C.D? I just bought The Rough Guide to sking and snowboarding in North America, and its okay, but not at the...
