Wildcat was pretty good today! Got choppy at the end, and at the start it was hard getting through some places...but there were a few out of the way runs to hit with good steep terrain covered in untouched powder

Off to either there, Cranmore or Attitash tomorrow!

Hit up crotched and found a good 30" of powder. Got a ton of early runs before it tracked out. It was so cold and dry the snow stayed really light pretty much the whole time.

Awesome day made better by subaruing too.
Bumped into nesic'er who lurks but remembered a lot of great stuff from 01'-05'. Neat to meet people for the first time like that and already mutually know a lot of the same people. Derping on his SN, jack IRL.

Great to meet ya

I'm possible at wachusett tomorrow.

Down to my last free ticket. Need to restock soon! Going to Attitash tomorrow to ski the glades at Bear Peak. Hopefully the well hidden woods sections will have some virgin snow that hasn't been banged out.

Thought it was funny that one word was edited out of that song.

I hit Okemo last Wednesday. Conditions were excellent and I had a blast. They really keep up with the grooming at that mountain. I was hitting speeds I didn't think were possible on a snowboard lol.

Planning on hitting Stratton this coming Wednesday. I've never been. What's the general consensus from my fellow Nesicers?

Skied there many times in the 70's and 80's, along with the other southern VT ski areas. I remember there not being a lot of challenging trails, but usually some decent groomers.

That's what I like so I should enjoy it. Id rather groomed terrain where I can get good speed over challenging trails. I don't mind an occasional challenging trail but they tend to be too choppy for me to completely enjoy.

Low pitch trails, only a few are steep enough to mention, they groom heavily and have an incredible amount of upload with all the 6 person lifts and the gondola so lines shouldn't be too bad (but trails will be more crowded). I'd go to Bromley, Magic or Snow if I were in southern VT, but Stratton is an experience.

Stratton is full of rich NY'ers. The mountain is trying to go upscale it appears they want to cater to them. I also almost got my ticket clipped for riding through the park without a Park Pass. Some interesting glades trails but nothing epic.

Is this VT vacation week? How bad are the lines typically at the end of week on Saturday or Sunday?

Holiday weekends are crazy in VT if the weather is remotely decent. Not worth it IMO.

My wife and I have had season passes to stratton for three years now and I'm beginning to grow very bored of the trails. Next year we might have to venture to killington instead.

Just got back from Brian Head in Utah. First time out this season had a blast. Wasn't the best of conditions but I'm not one to complain.

Just got home from Stratton. Wasn't very impressed and got bored pretty quick. I think I'm going to stick to Okemo as my go to day trip mountain, not that Okemo is anything intense but I find it much more enjoyable than Stratton.

Completely agree. Place was full of snobby rich people that can't ski/board. The glades were the only thing that kept us entertained, unfortunately we didn't stumble upon them until later in the day.

What do you recommend for mountains with good glades? This was my first time spending a lot of time in glade trails and I had a blast, so I would like to hit other mountains with glades now.

Yea I hear you, I was bored after just a few hours. I've never been to Killington but from what I've heard I'm sure its a much better mountain than Stratton.

Needless to say this was my first and last time at Stratton. I'll come in here for advice on my next trip BEFORE I buy the ticket lol.

No. you answer three questions and get a pass that you might have to show at the park entrance. Takes all of 2 minutes to get and people aren't even at the park half the time to check.

Its all about finding where the locals ride the off trail glade chutes. Loon has some sick secret glades between a few trails, Sunapee has decent glades if snow I deep enough, Waterville I did not love their secret trails that much,

Have been to killington 5 times so far this season stellar conditions all 5 times. Best mountain for the money in VT and really on the east coast you could spend several days there and not hit every trail. Wide open even when it's crowded you can be on a trail alone. Southern VT resorts are not worth it other then killington sugarbush and northern resorts like jay peak are nice, but far.

I love Jay Peak, my favorite mountain by far, I would say Stowe is my second. I did a two day trip up there earlier this year. I try to go there at least once a year.

Just planned a trip to hit Killington with a buddy this coming Monday. Multiple people have told me its the best in the East so I'm really looking forward to it. Looks like they have a few glade areas as well, which is my new found love haha.

I like Okemo and Snow for southern VT, but only for day trips as they are less than 2 hours from my house. I've never been to Sugarbush but have heard good things about them as well.

Dude killington is only about 30 minutes further or less depending on which way you go from okemo. And it is 100% better you have to go where the elevation is for best conditions or way up north like jay peak yes it is awesome up there!! Killington is excellent and you should have a blast w fresh snow and the crowds will be gone. If you like glades they have plenty. We always start at skyeship base and take the gondola up making our way around be careful very easy to get lost haha. Lots of steeps and glades all diamonds and double blacks on bear mountain. Skye peak has awesome fun trails and so does k1 gondola to the top. Let me know how you like it, I love it there. Snowshed has an awesome bar/ lounge.

Jay has arguably the best lift served woods skiing in the east.

I guess it depends on what you consider value. I consider 6 parks, glades, steeps and some of the best of all on the east for sure a great value. 3000+ vertical cruisers that go for miles not 1000 feet, idk seems like a good time to me but to each is own. VT has alot of good mountains. For southern VT killington is the best IMO.
