    Sound was rough, the two venue thing wasnít great either. I was set up at the Taz in the shakedown row and it was beat.

    Skied for a bit yesterday morning at Sunday RIver. They had tilled what they could, but calling it "groomed" would be a bit of a stretch. I had fun for about an hour and a half, then agreed with the girlfriend that it was cold and getting (relatively) crowded with only one trail open.

    Guns are on again now, although they'll probably have to shut down at some point soon with the sun warming things up. Tomorrow's forecast looks...interesting. Fingers crossed that the temps end up being a bit lower than forecast and the precip is solid.

    No update to the blog but Josh Fox is already coming up with some interesting numbers on Twitter. Any corroboration from the amateur mets?

    He was focusing on Wednesday and hasnít even gotten to the weekend yet. Maybe his strategy is that if heís wrong on Twitter fewer people will see it?

    Is the Boston Ski expo worth going to? Costs $15. Are there good deals on discounted tickets? Or is it just advance online pricing and they show the discount % from window price...
    I was considering it.. but $15 gets a lot of PBR

    I used to go every year. If you're looking to find a deal on gear its worth it. Basically tons of area shops go there to unload last years' gear at typical past season prices.

    I would say itís worth it if you need gear that you have to try on first before buying. If not, online deals are usually equal or better priced if you scour around. If you do go, try and go on the first day and be on the early side.

    In actual ski talk, was anyone up at killi on sunday afternoon? Trying to gauge the level of shitshow one would expect up there on a sunday afternoon at this time of the year...

    I was up there from opening at 9 until around 2pm, in the singles line I never waited more than a minute or two in the morning and by lunch time it was ski on to the lift for singles and groups. The snow under the guns on upper east fall was great as long as I could get a strategic goggle wipe in every other turn.

    Not that bad of a shitshow crowd-wise. Besides the 1/2 a trail of snowmaking, the other 3/4 of the open terrain was in rough shape. That may have contributed to the crowd reduction.

    Thankfully, that lift has limited uphill capacity so those trails arenít ever that bad early season. The only issue is, how big of a shitshow the lift line is.
    Because rich has nothing to do with money.

    On a different note....
    FussyDutchman, Mrs MNIAW, and I went to Lawson's official opening last night. The soft openings had the crew dialed in and it was smooth as glass.

    Oh, the beers were phenomenal. Sip of Sunshine is dead to me now.

    Had a chance to say hi to Sean as things were closing down (last call is at 7:00pm for now...) Lots of other local celebs seemed to be about but no sign of Vt-F

    Great to see they finally opened. Will it be the next flatbread shitshow? Were you taking cockshots in the lav and happened to notice the fancy urinal cake??
