    Nice
    with the snow density coupled with headlamps this is a great effort

    Sounds like Hickory is going to offer single day tickets which I don't think they have done since they rebooted. https://skihickory.com/blogs/news/hickory-crossroads

    good to hear...crazy that they're offering night skiing though.
    that mountain can be punishing enough in full daylight.
    a bunch of folks on the board met up the one time i was there; we broke for a late lunch by the fire, and not one of us went back out for more. those surface lifts mean quad burn upon quad burn...to say nothing of those deep dips on the upper lift.
    can't wait to get back there so hope they can sell enough season passes to cover their insurance costs.

    the night skiing is probably just the bunny slope at the bottom i doubt anyone here has ever skied.

    great for local kids to learn on, have a park, etc.

    I'm rooting for Hickory as much as anybody but we gotta be realistic...the base is something like 680 feet above sea level and it's not very far north. Like someone else posted, it snows there once per decade. Without significant snowmaking (like Willard and West have) I don't see how this is sustainable. Both of those are a better option for kids in that area.

    Day 3, working at the hill is choice for lunch laps. Can’t remember the last time I skied in November, I don’t remember it, being this good.
    Sunny and no wind in SoVT today.

    Clouds in and out on top today. 2,400’ vertical top to bottom runs at the loaf with very good conditions. Surprised to see a dense wall to wall base on the hill. Not surprising very grabby venturing on anything natural. They are going to open more terrain tomorrow. Place was blissfully empty today.

    Incredible day at the Bush yesterday. We managed to get over to Castlerock just as patrol dropped the rope.

    Was there in the morning. 9 laps by 11 am. Heading back today. Agree, can't remember SoVT being this good in November.

    Hickory's night skiing is from the mid of Poma 1 down. It's legit blue terrain.

    Maybe I should be more careful and say, that is where the lights are.

    Immutable facts that Hickory can't escape.

    Day 5 at Stratton today.

    Best conditions I've skied so far this season.

    Once again, Stratton surprises by opening a natural snow trail (Snow Bowl Liftline). After hitting rocks on that trail with CharlesJ last year when they dropped the ropes, I was able to go 2 laps without hitting anything. Goniff put up some video evidence on YouTube
