NYC-Windham Blades trip Wednesday

Anyone heading up to Windham from NYC with BladesNYC on Wednesday? 18" of fresh powder - it should be sweet!

I just discovered blades trips. I was wondering if others have used their services and whether you might provide a little feedback on their trips.

Thanks.

lol. Yeah, the roads are trashed. I saw a couple of abandoned cabs on Park Ave in midtown this afternoon! If Manhattan hasn't caught up yet then I can only imagine how bad the tri-state area is...

hunter is def steeper and more challenging. their runs are fast and a lot of fun, and the main lift is pretty quick

windham is not bad except for all their lifts...slow as mollases. but they do have a lot of fun terrain where u can pretty much find a lot of natural features to jump off of. Windham also has better tree runs.
