  1. Yes, agreed. Was able to talk my wife to playing hooky for this storm. Spend the day ridding the deep pow at Sugarbush, snowing so hard you could only see three chairs ahead. The best part of the day was the resort offered $14 lift tickets to celebrate V-Day. On our way back to Stockbridge, on rt. 100 south, that afternoon we had to drive around a mini avalanche that covered the right travel lane near Moss Glen Falls
  2. No snow at Stowe right now but sweet sunset
  3. It's amazing to see how every other Vail resort mountain on the East coast has availability except for Stowe which right now only has Thursday available to reserve next week.@powderfreak. Definitely the crown jewel of Northeast ski areas.
  4. Good insight, thank you. I'll make it happen.
  5. I totally messed up and spaced on making a Epic reservation at Stowe for my wife and I this Sunday. My kids are all set as they are part of the Busters program. @powderfreak any insight into if/when Vail Resorts might release additional spots? With the resort almost 100% open I'd expect capacity to wide open, but it's obviously the most busy weekend of the year...Regardless I keep checking the reservation site for a miracle.
  6. I"m curious to know if Stowe Mtn. is planning a standby or waitlist for days that are full capacity in the morning but then crowds thin out at lunch time. I see this happen every winter but expect it to be even more prevalent this year when restaurants/bars on the mountain are closed. This would only help people who are local or have a seasonal house rather than people who need to reserve a spot at the mountain before booking weekend accommodations. I personally am renting a place in Stowe for the winter season and have the kids enrolled in the Busters program. This year the hours are shorter but the kids are guaranteed a reservation on the days the program is running. In the event that the kids can ski but I can't get a reservation would be nice to have a waitlist for the possibility to ride in the afternoon when the crowds thin out.
  7. For those of us making the long journey up to Stowe from Boston Friday night how treacherous do you all expect 89 to be and starting when? My daughter has a practice that ends at 5:00pm which is making me nervous that we will have a white knuckle drive.
  8. @powderfreak I'm curious why the Stowe Snow Report seems so under reported. 3" overnight and 3" 24hr with only 12" in the past 7 days? Also, sorry if I missed the explanation already, what happened to the snow report commentary on the site? I much enjoyed that!
