Mt. Snow Corinthia

Saw this map on skimap.org. Does that mean Mt. Snow is taken the whole Carithia area and making it all park? Look like each trail is a different style of features and there are seven or eight of them. I think that's a great idea. I'm really not into the park seen much at all but I say give the park rats a whole area to their own to let them have their fun. Also, I like the idea of separating the types of features so if you just dabble in park and are interested in one type of thing, you can hit that trail.

Thats what I am to understand. There are some nice trees there, I hope they don't get burned down from an errant flick of an ash.

True dat

Yes, Officially, the entire Corinthia area is to be under the "Parks and Pipes" department.

That will be a good thing. And there is nothing to keep a tree skier out of those areas .....yet.


It should be good.

Looks like a good idea, except I'm going to miss Mineshaft, that was a very fun trail.

It says Claim Jumper will "Trees and Jumps". So maybe they'll leave trees. Of course Trees and Jumps seem to be somewhat incompatible features. All sorts of comical visions come to mind

I can see the videos coming out of there with "Benny Hill" soundtracks.

There does seem to be a trend to retain natural terrain features - they are wise to do this, particularly in New England.

One of the mistakes made at places like Mt Snow in the past has been to make "Western style" trails - wide open, straight and devoid of trees, beaten down grooming, leading to cold windy icy nameless trails. New England skiing's character is more narrow, tree-lined, winding with multiple fall lines, rocks and the like and less groomed. I like the happy medium of swept trails with larger trees intact or older narrow trails - less wind, quieter and you might even hear birds on a nice day.
