Kung Fu in manchester is why I\'m going to Magic Friday. I know I\'d be too sore and tired to make it to both in one day.

Lucky me it\'s pretty easy to flex my schedule around for such things.

i was at mt snow on sunday & monday for my first time skiing since 2008 -- or first time since car accident & knee surgery!!!  

my knee held up well and psyched to be able to stop ignoring these threads.   i didn\'t feel ready to jump back in the glades yet, but focused on form and simply enjoyed bombing the mountain.  

i am very down for lots of skiing this year... i can do sundays and mondays.... which are my fave days as mountains tend to be empty sunday afternoon > monday.  

at the grand summit lodge at mt snow - as long as space is availalble i can get rooms for $80 the first night and $16 each additional.  we dont have to ski there as it is pricey for what you get but nice to have a jumping off or crash spot for reasonable.

sweet glad to hear you\'re back in action

Sundays are good for me, or Saturday night lodge > Sunday ski

I am thinking this winter we need at least one Bfam ski weekend. Nice little ski and stay package, champagne and hot tubs, just doin\' it right. And I\'ve been dreaming of going back to Sugarbush but it\'s a little far for a day trip....

Paradise Glade, Rumble, Castlerock Woods, and Middle Earth @ Sugarbush are among my favorite trails as well. Very determined to get that shh on the helmet cam this year too .. hehe

If you ask me let\'s do it the first or second weekend of March. Schedule conflicts?

(that is an awesome deal at Mt Snow.. but check out http://www.liftopia.com for other deals... I only say this because I went to Mt Snow once already this year and found it sort of meh)

seriously though.... day 1 @ Sugarbush... day 2 a few miles up the road @ Mad River Glen... hehehe.. yeaahhh

Catamount = $27 adult lift tickets Monday-Friday non-holiday.  Just putting it out there, thought it was a good price.  Never been there myself... anyone have any comments about the place good or bad?  It is right near the tri state border Ny-Mass-Ct and looked ok when I drove by last wknd.  http://www.catamountski.com/mountain/trail-map.cfm
Lois: What the hell?  Marilyn Manson?  Is that who\'s causing all this?  Peter: Yeah, it\'s all him or hers fault.  Who does he or she think he or she is?  Look, you can totally see his or her nipples.  That\'s obscene... maybe.  Lois: There\'s only one thing to do.  Peter: You\'re right.  We got to find this Marilyn Manson and I\'ve got to give that bastard or bitch a piece of my mind or penis.

Catamount is kinda weak imo. Butternut is probably better for that particular tri-state border.

I got tickets to Bolton Valley yesterday for $22 on liftopia.com ... one of the best days of skiing I can remember.

good to know... but I\'ll never go to Butternut again after finding out it wasn\'t steep enough for a 6" pow day unless you were on groomed trails.  Imo Mohawk is better than Butternut for a quick Blizzard getaway when you don\'t want to put too many miles on your tires (from New Haven area).  Catamount looked steeper than Butternut.  I\'ll definitely look into Bolton Valley though.

Catamount is slightly steeper than Butternut.. but it\'s a fairly ghetto operation overall, and not really any bigger.

liftopia.com is so awesome I\'d never be getting so much skiing in at (expensive) areas if it wasn\'t for all the bargains.

For all you New Hampshirites who like beer:

The Boston Moon Hash is having a Beer Olympics tonight in Sunapee, NH

Beer Olympics are a good deal of fun and mainly involve drinking games played in teams to win prizes (MORE BEER!)

We might or might not actually run.

If you are interested in attending, send me a message and I will send you the details.
