And I thought you were smart Ben!

Sheesh. Didn't you know the scale was logarithmic? That's just basic knowledge for any "hudgeness" metrics ;)

I love the definition of 700-1500' as "mid-sized" mountains.

I don't think "mid-sized" is my impression when I ski a hill with 700' vert... 

every stowe skier knows the real vert is from mansfield down to 108 anyway ;)

I am surprised that no one on this list has beaten this guy to the punch.

Whiteface is first in the East at #14 with the next closest being Sugarbush at #33.  Using the "true up" vertical equation it's amazing to see some of the other results.  Mt. Snow, Jay Peak and MRG are pretty right on with their advertising where as Killington, Smuggs, Stowe and others are way down the list.  Interesting.

I also heard that Sunday River opened officially yesterday becoming the first in North America to actually open.  The Yankees are toast, I put away my motorcycle yesterday, it can snow all it wants now.  Oh yeah, gotta get my snow tires on.    Jimski
