Just wanted to improve my game by associating myself with those who often ride. I've been riding for about a year now. I could hit the Blues. Not Diamonds but would love to improve my riding. I got a Burton elite 2008 last year. Have been riding that. Looking into may getting another board. Does anyone have the same board? & How is that working for you?
Mt. Snow for weekend trips? Is that in Vermont? Does JFBB have the best snow of all the mountains in PA? I've yet to go there. I've been to Bear, Blue and Camel only.
Bottom line: JFBB has short trails and slow lifts. BUT, their snow making, grooming, and terrain parks have no competition in PA. A season that lasts from November to April with events in October and May says a lot about their dedication to pass holders and all PA riders. Boulder had a 65ft jump all last season and a 35ft one in early November.
Blue has longer runs and faster lifts, but their natural conditions, snowmaking, pathetic grooming, and bombed out and rutted terrain park landings ruined Blue for me. The crowds at Blue was always a negative as well.
Mt Snow is about 5 hours from Philly in Vermont. Well worth the drive if you can get a good deal or get a few people together to split the costs.
PM me if you want to meet up to ride at either location or carpool from the Philly area.
Most definitely.... possibly not this month but the following after I return from Cali. Speaking of Cali, I may possibly hit up one of the Mountains up in Lake Tahoe. I've been checking them out as of lately since I will out that way for vacation. The only thing I truly dislike is the Charge for extra bags on air planes.
