Has anybody been to Nubs Nob in the past few days? Can you give a fuller picture of conditions than their web site, which list 10 trails open and temperatures good for snowmaking? (I see an inch or two is in the forecast for the weekend.)

I had plans to go to Vermont for the whole week before Christmas with my older son, but Sugarbush, where we usually go, still only has a single way down the mountain. So I was thinking of taking a quick north and ride Nubs on Monday - Wednesday.

@Shell deal

Grrr! Discrimination against those with small cars and small gas tanks! I had a conversation about this last March with a coworker who rides. He couldn't believe that I never buy 10 gallons of gas, so I've been keeping track for the past 8 months, and I've bought over 10 gallons exactly 1 time. I'm guessing my tank's about 12 gallons, but my daily round trip to/from work is 88 miles, so I never let my tank get that low.

Definitely had the worst hangover ever today but damn that was a kickass weekend. Awesome meeting you guys Garret, Jesse, Dave, Jay and Leo. Too bad we didn't get a group shot before we took off.

Now I shall soak and get rubbed down for the next 6 days so I can get out there again on Christmas day.


Hopefully we can get out again soon, even if somewhere down here.

Mike if Nub's is anything like Crystal the conditions should be good, albeit mostly manmade snow with only a few inches of natural stuff YTD. Right now their website is saying they will have 6 chairs open this week and 14 trails will be open Monday morning. Hopefully this info gets to you in time!

Hahah! Brad was an absolute wreck today. I had to pull over on the side of the road to let him purge the hangover...

We should definitely set up another one of these if we can!

Can't describe the amount of fun I had with you guys. I just wish the mountain was more opened up so we could have ridden more as a cohesive group.

I blame Dave.

great time guys!! thanks for all the organizing leo and dave. great time with the Marhar crew too! now we get to pay holiday pricing at holly and pk from now thru the new year. all i gotta say is thats bullshyt. $40 for a couple of sorry runs is robbery. pk still shows all of their parks closed too. this will def influence how much i go (or don't go) in the next 2 weeks. how can they get away with this crap

Not sure if Dave posted anything about this, but Jay and I were talking about it. We have a sneaking suspicion that the company that owns our local hills own other bigger resorts elsewhere and are dumping our money into those places.
