skier219, THAT is the tip I was hoping for. I was dreading the walk to the slope, and was already ready to scout for a shortcut. I've been staring at all the maps wondering how much brush/trees seperated the complex from powderridge. Thanks a TON.
Our daughter's school schedule is the biggest factor on our multi-day trips, and this week was another short week, so they are less likely to get any real work done. Monday however will be "nose to the grindstone" day again after all their recent time off.. so we just couldn't do it. I hate weekend skiing because of the crowds clearly and the increased lift tix prices, but the deal was no ski.. or fri/sat ski ... clear winner
We're arriving Thurs night, so we'll be ready to go before they open the slopes on Friday. We'll ski while the tourists are drinking & eating, and we'll probably just head over to silver creek or take a break in the condo when they all decide it's ski time.
Hey... is snowboarding big at Snowshoe? Here in my triangle of resorts the boarders totally out number the skiiers... like 3 boarders to 1 skier...
