Northeast is the prefered local esp. since the rare massive snow fall exists. There's a posibility I'd have place to stay near Copper, assuming I could find super cheap airfare. (Though snow there is not so great?)
Open to suggestions...
Bump for Throwback Thursday.
Why this thread?
Well, because someone recently asked me what was Tog's first thread.
Lots of questions come out of this:
Did @Tog find his advanced instruction camp?
Did Tog learn anything?
Dig Tog teach anything?

ha. Certainly didn't remember this one.
That winter VT and the northeast saw a crazy amount of snow in March. 7ft. Ended up going to Stowe, Mad River, Sugarloaf, and Jay Peak in April.
Stowe was lame. It was April 15th, they charged full mid winter price, the front four were closed. Josh was not around then. We left after one day and went to Mad River for $25. Sugarloaf the next week was amazing for 2 days, the snowfields open on top, great snow, then on the third day warm air came in and the bottom was near 70 degrees. We got a crazy deal then. $50 for lift, lodging, and lesson!. Ha, skied with Peter Howard one morning. Jay Peak set a record for snowfall that year. 472 inches if I recall. That was a great season.
Ended up going to Les Deux Alpes in the Summer with Jim Cardenali. Fantastic.
@Tog not sure if you were aware that A-basin in Summit County, CO is sometimes open into June and is a great place to scratch that late season itch.
Yeah no one here was talking about ABasin then. Still, nothing like real skiing in summer in July. It's half a day but pretty good.
