Life is pretty good right now. I just got new pants and jacket from Flylow too! It’s the nicest gear I’ve had in a long while. Man I hated school. That was awful.

If I visited the east I’d definitely go ski MRG, Magic and Plattekill.
I have 2 Flylow jackets, one is 8 seasons old and there are no marks on it. The jackets are super durable.

Re: Ski plans for next season?

Hopefully have a new job by Ski season so I can actually you know, have time to Ski. If I don't the way the last 4 months have been I'll be working most, if not all weekends and no prospect of using vacation time (which I have 2+ months of roll over saved now).

Went with an IKON pass this year and no ORDA pass, so this will be the first time in 3 years I haven't had a true unlimited season pass. Plan on heading to VT more this winter and using up all my K and Sugarbush days. Maybe a Stratton day too. Hopefully go out west. Already got 3 days on it between Squaw and Alpine back in late April so already have some return on the investment.  Although if I am successful at changing jobs I won't be traveling for work as much out West, but at rate things are going I wouldn't be able to squeeze skiing in anyways like I have past seasons on business trips.

Still plan on skiing Gore and WF some, but not enough to justify a full blown season pass. Plan on hitting them during the holiday periods since I will be blacked out on IKON.

Magic (black out pass).  Will try to hit some smaller hills (McCauly, Oak, ect) while blocked from Magic.  Either a long weekend at Jay or Sugarbush.  Might head west for a week, but I'm waiting see how the weather pattern shakes out.

Bring on the snow!

Re: Ski plans for next season?

Cool - nice to see that in mid-August people are already thinking about skiing this winter.  Had near full coverage at Killington on Dec. 2nd of last year - only 3-1/2 months away!

ICON pass for 2nd year so Killington, Sugarbush and Stratton for sure.  Day trips to Plattekill and/or Hunter and Bellayre plus CNY powder dump days at Song Mountain (small place but they leave a lot of the trails ungroomed for most of the day).

Ski buddy decided to get married, have a kid and buy a house all at once so I doubt he'll be up for a western trip this year.  Thinking of heading to Steamboat.  Non-skier wife will join me and I thought it might be a nice town for her to enjoy.  Big mellow mountain and snowcat skiing as well.  Anyone been there?

Yeah, go to the Strawberry Park Hot Springs with your wife (instead of the one in town).

Steamboat is a really nice town. I lived there for two years in the mid 90’s and had a ton of fun. It’s grown a lot since I left.

It’s definitely a mellow mountain. There’s a few short steep shots but it takes two lift rides and skiing on some flattish stuff in between to lap em. Nice trees of course. After two years I was ready to go elsewhere for more exciting terrain but it’s plenty entertaining if you’ve never been.

Haven't been for quite a while, but I remember Steamboat as a fun town to walk around.  The hot springs either in town indoors or outside town outdoors are well worth a visit.  The bus system is pretty decent so if flying into the local airport, it's possible to do without a rental car.
