    Jonni, did you really leave LSC at say 6am, go to Mt. Snow, and then get back in time for class, all in the same day?

    For Mount Snow I left at around 5am. Stopped for breakfast in White River Junction, gas right before getting to the mountain, and made it for first chair at 9am. Skied straight until 12:30/12:45ish and drove non-stop back to LSC. The two or three days I did that I was walking into my class at 4:30 on the dot with no time to spare. :)

    There was one day that I ended up leaving from Sunapee early in the morning cutting the trip in half, so that helped.

    I'm wondering what kind of reaction we'll get when next week we're skiing at a 400' vertical, one chairlift area in Quebec..."You came all the way from Saratoga to ski here?!?!?"

    I suspect if it was a day-trip or if that was the only place you were skiing, that would be a reasonable reaction.  The fact that it is part of a multi-day trip makes it pretty normal among those wanting to check off the "skied that place" box.  That's how I got to the now lost, Mont Joye and Mont Hibou.
