I ran across this interesting post on Snowheads about how many resorts can be skied in 1 day in the Western US and in Europe.

http://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?t=5482

I'm curious. Has anyone tried to ski multiple Mid-Atlantic resorts in 1 day? If so, which ones? How many resorts do you think could be skied in 1 day here if $ were no object or if one could arrange to be comped by the participating resorts as a PR stunt.

One might be able to hit: WT, Liberty, RT, BK, Laurel, 7 Springs, Wisp, Timberline, and Canaan Valley. If Snowshoe would keep open the Skidder lift for the stunt, one might be able to roll into Snowshoe at midnight, and then celebrate this record feat at Top of the World. This may be something that DCSki should consider sponsoring next year.

well I hope no one actualyl tries this as it owuld cost hundreds with out "sponsorship". All 3 snowtime resorts would be easy. All 4 laurel highlands would be easy too (7S, HV, Laurel, BK) To a lot you need someone to drive you. with a good route and driving directions on the back roads. I think the best progession would be

TL--> CV --> Wisp --> Magic Mountain --> 7S --> HV --> Laurel --> BK --> Whitetail --> Roundtop --> Liberty....

Thats 11. It might be do able you end up with resorts that are open late. Maybe if you do it on one of the snow time open till 12AM nights.

How about if you start in pittsburgh and travel east
Boyce Park -->(1 hr drive) --> Willow Brook --> (1 hour drive) --> Mystic Mountain --> (1/2 hr drive) --> Seven Springs --> (15 min drive) --> Hidden Valley --> (1/2 hr drive) --> Laurel Mountain --> (1 hr drive) --> Blue Knob --> (1.5 hr drive) --> Tussey Mountain

Here's a slightly different take:
Massanutten==> Bryce==> CV==> TL==> Wisp==> Mystic==> 7Springs==> HV==> Laurel Mt==> Blue Knob

It might be a stretch - I'm not sure how long the drive would be from Bryce to CV - I'm thinking close to 2 hours. I'd be one tired critter after all of this - I'd definitely need a driver, so I could sleep between some of the stops....

I'd go more of the angle "Given that no one else is on the slopes, how many resorts could be 100% skiied in a day. I think that would be about three.

What about this progression? Bryce, massanutten, WG, Homestead, Snowshoe, CV, T-line, Wisp?

This sounds like a nice goal to meet assuming you could afford it. But why would you want to do this? I'd much rather go for skiing 100% of one resort than spending most of my time in the car!

I will not allow that a resort is 100% skied if you only take 1 line per named run.

How many lines would you have to ski to ski 100% of Liberty?

The basin side of Snowshoe would take forever to ski 100% especially if you had to hit every combination of trails not just every trail. I'd hate to even try to keep track of it. It'd be really hard if the line for Ballhooter lift was halfway back up the mountain

To ski Liberty 100%, it will take 14 runs. You would repeat some of the slopes in an effort to ski from the top of every open trail. This includes the bunny slope and terrain park(2 sides) but does not include the half-pipe.
