Now to REALLY piss a few people off!
This place is GREAT!
When the ice is good and buried with good snow in New England you can have comparable days to what I have been having here the last few days.
I do realize that I am unlucky and have not been experiencing the real Steamboat though - they haven't got snow since I bought my plane ticket it seems...go figure.
See guys, Josh is right. Should've gone to Stowe!
Imagine if he went to ABasin!!!
twochord, just Fyi, on Friday it rained all over VT. Was a period of a good pouring too. The superb conditions were no longer superb. Weekend was pretty good despite. However it was warm then. Now the freeze is back on up there. So there you go.
I've was at Sunday River last year when a good half of the trails were closed because of slush to solid freeze. That was March. Still a great mt.
On Friday during the rain storm, Middlebury Snowbowl lift got hit by lightning and knocked out for awhile. No one was hurt on the lift but they felt it. This during FIS College races for Middlebury Carnival.
