This is going to balloon into a much bigger scandal. No one really knows about it yet, but it's huge. These EB-5 green card deals are pretty big, and they didn't just happen in the Northeast Kingdom....

I remember riding at Stowe right after the bank bailout. AIG quickly took their logo off the Stowe website, and everybody was talking about it on the lifts. Like -- we just gave them a few billion...

The taxpayers didn't pay for the improvements to Jay Peak or Burke. They were funded with money from the Saudis and Chinese under a program which fast-tracked them to green cards in exchange for...

Everyplace has damned near shut down already. 8-12" of snow isn't going to be enough to cover up the tree stumps and rocks. But all cross my fingers. This is supposed to move pretty far north. It...

Mount Snow is MAKING SNOW again! Probably too little too late, but they still have events planned, and it's going to get cold again Friday so they're firing up the guns. Unreal. It doesn't sound all...

I've ridden Stowe in the best of times and in the worst of times. It's like sex, or pizza: when it's good, it's great. When it's bad, it's still pretty good.

Let's be painfully obvious about this..."OBESITY RATE" kind of struck a nerve. I didn't start snowboarding until I was 40 years old. I instantly loved it, spent thousands of dollars on gear over the...

Unless you don't have a helmet with ear cups, or no bluetooth, I don't see why you'd spend the $$ for these when the OT Chips are on sale price. I have a pair of wired Skull Candy speakers that I...

Ski club has cheap tix at Sugarbush this weekend. I'm going to drive up as early as possible Friday. I have have to be home for a birthday party mid-day Sunday. Sounds do-able.
