looking outside at the cars, we might have 8 inches now. It's really hard to tell when theres 12 foot snow piles from all the plows, and people coming in and out of the building... it gets tracked out real quick here so its hard to gauge. But yeah, i am one of the lucky ones. I'll be out tomorrow tearing it up! hopefully all the mass people dont get to it first, it is mass vacation week after all...

I totally understand that when the lines are long, but when there's a pair line right next to you with 1 pair in it, and the singles line has 10?

DaveMcI Rode sugarloaf Friday and Saturday. The mtn got about 16inches and it was soooo nice. All bracket basin was open and by 1030 the glades were easier to ride than the trails. Deff the best pow day this year so far.

I almost jumped in the regular line a few times. The green that took you back to the main base from Jackson gore was super crowded, but other than that it wasn't too bad.

The only mountains with considerably more vert are considerably farther from me. I did think it was set up a little odd, the runs I kept hittin were hard to get back to without taking 2 lifts.

So far I've enjoyed my trips to nh a little more than vt, but maybe that's because I can get farther north in nh in the same amount of time. This is really the first season I've really been exploring a lot of different mountains.

^This. I did it once, MLK weekend I think, and I too spent more time either in a lift line or on their super slow lifts than actually riding. It doesn't help that it's a small vertical compared to other places in the Northeast. By the time I got into a good flow I was at the bottom, stuck in a line again. No bueno
