    Is there any resort in the world that can guarantee having all pistes open at any given time? Is this really an issue with east coast resorts or is the op just an entitled douche?

    This is an excellent post.
    A truly artful troll. Near perfection. But the food thing just made it too perfect. And reality is never perfect. As a NYC region native transplanted in Maine for many years, I can tell you that Pizza and Chinese food remains an issue- the problem is real. But even a New Yorker wouldn't bother complaining about ski area food. Creating a good troll is a balancing act, and you went just a hair over the top.
    But thank you for the effort, and the entertainment.

    (In the highly unlikely chance that this is real- I speak on behalf of the entire state: We are really going to miss you.)

    Maybe the OP should take his complaints to the snowmakers, groomers, and patrollers at the 'Loaf... I bet they'd love to knock some sense into him after the the weekend they've all had.

    I'm a former east coast skier who now lives in Colorado and who has skied a 100ish days in The Dolomites. I think East Coast skiing is underrated. Especially if you are willing to climb for good snow. The key is timing and not whining. If you are "so done" with east coast skiing you probably just don't like skiing very much, or have some perverted expectations.

    Saying that, I am going to get more Pocono/Catskill skiing in this year, but I am going to pick my days.
    Hear hear...

    A few years back I mistakenly skied front moguls at Cannon after a thaw/freeze....solid ice 2-3’ troughs. It was about as dangerous as anything else iveskied. I crashed and destroyed my thumb ligaments....couldn’t hold anything for about 6mos.

    I go the Poconos pretty often....I call it: practice.

    Yep, that's why they close trails nowadays until they can groom or things soften up again.
    Go that way really REALLY fast. If something gets in your way, TURN!

    To be fair to me, I only blamed myself and didn’t sue anyone.

    I just hiked up Magic and skied down on 4 inches of sublime fluff over a well-groomed base. Did I ski any of the black diamond trails? No, I did not, that would just be stupid. Merry Christmas to all (especially me). Sorry [not sorry] you didn't join me CB.

    Edited to add that the mountain ops crew was out in force making snow, grooming, and getting things ready for tomorrow. Merry Christmas to them and their families.

    I’m thinking the OP is the same m troll who posted “what ski to buy” threads and complained about Kirkwood’s “heavy snow”.... if so, bravo for figuring out how to actually create a username....

    Captain obvious here: a great ski day requires a bit of magic. (capital M if you be so inclined). Many variables: life, love, job, money, time, gear, and yea weather. Ski sites were originally about, at least in part, sharing beta. Pro tip: paying attention improves your odds.

    I figured Greg would find this thread sooner or later so...

The northeast is the home of the gnarliest snowriding on the North American continent! In addition to the superior intellectual urban environments and lifestyles, you will have easy access to great mountain experiences like Killington, Vermont where the snowriding terrain is truly fabulous, the partying is unmatched anywhere(can you say "hot New Jersey Italian babes?") the snow and weather are underrated, and the setting is lush and green! If you can shred here, you can shred ANYWHERE. When you score your first Killington powder day in "Anarchy", "The Throne", "Chop Chop" or "Patsy", you will be grinning from ear to ear, I promise you! There is lift-serviced mountain biking in the summer and the autumn colors are unmacthed anywhere on the planet. I would also like to take this opportunity to formally invite you (as well as all TGR Maggots , TTip-ers, NewSchoolers, Epicureans, jongs and lurkers alike) to come join our fun-loving but responsible bunch of snowriding aficionados at http://forums.alpinezone.com/. I think most all of you will find that our seasoned moderators "keep the bar high" by maintaining a sense of order and decorum, while encouraging quality discussion about our favorite pastime. I can assure you that "newbies"'(jongs) are welcomed with open arms by our entire community(unlike here at TGR), and there is no "hazing period" or rudeness tolerated. We also have superior bandwidth and response times on our 502g superfibre network as well as a state-of-the-art virtual blade server farm with 5000 terabytes of virtual disk space for your photos, blogs etc. It may take a small amount of getting used to, as we do have reasonable standards as far as language and image posting that are strictly enforced. The registration is easy and painless, and the rules will be explained in detail during the process. I will warn you however up front that registering an ALIAS is strictly "VERBOTEN", and something we have zero-tolerance with. If you are tired of the juvenile goings-on at TGR and Newschoolers and yearn for a snowriding forum that matches your maturity level, all I can say is: "Come join the fun"!

    Wow, Gregs really stepping up his shit talking. CO is dry AND stupid? Could have sworn there were some good schools there.

    Is this Brooklyn JONGer has gotta be an alias. If he's that dumb and entitled, he shouldn't have made it through the registration prosess with more than an m series name.

    I DEMAND THE MOUNTAIN BE FULLY OPEN BEFORE CHRISTMAS. THERE ARE NO GOOD RESTAURANTS IN NEW ENGLAND.
    I left 11 years ago and can still confidently say this urban hipster dickhead is wrong about everything. And if he's one of the autistic alii from Rutland, also still go fuck yourself.

    Yeah, you should have seen the look on the “barista’s” face when I ordered my morning cup of joe... Like, she literally had never even heard of a goat’s milk macchiato!

    Might as well have been speaking Greek to these poor peasants. Lol

    Greg is stupid. The Denver/Boulder/FC area has one of the highest concentration of smart/highly educated people in the Country. Not to mention CO School of Mines is often ranked higher than MIT for engineering.

    Same thoughts here.

    What's old is new again, there was Highway Starr until big corporate shutdown epic ski. He returns here with a new name and a new angle.

    I myself am a very frustrated EC skier and I've been rather salty the past few days. Conditions went to shit right before the holidays. Seems to happen quite often here. The key to enjoying the East is flexibility, You really hav to get it while its good. If you're a dumb piece of shit like myself and the OP, who live in NYC and work like suckers, then you're pretty much screwed.

    This year I'm saying fuck it. Fuck it to everything. Fuck my family, my friends, my job. When it snows, I'm getting in my car and I'm going skiing. Here's to getting fired!
