||At Loon... I am 23 years old, but 4 feet 11 inches tall... there is a penguin at the beginning of the lift that says "you must be 60" tall to ride this lift alone"... so all my friends laugh at me and made me go stand next to it, the liftie was watching and then decided to slow the lift down every time I went to get on and wave and laugh at me

||I've never been to Sugarbush, so I can't really say much for that. But Sugarloaf can get really cold and windy, but as long as you dress for it it's not bad at all. The trails are amazing so its worth it. I have also been on plenty of days when it was gorgeous weather. Only thing that I would warn you about is the long lines during holiday weekends... you can avoid them if you use some of the more out of the way lifts though.

||I had a Bern helmet and was not happy with it because the velcro that holds the pads in didn't work very well, ended up duct taping it all year. But, it was definitely the best looking one and the most lightweight. I've had Smith & Giro too, they are good but they tend to be more bulky as far as looks go.

||I've only been once, during Spring Break last year, so it was a really warm out and slushy. Still was one of the most fun days I had all year :)There are a lot of trails to explore if you have never been there. I don't go in the park so I can't give you much advice there, but I do remember seeing some HUGE jumps.

||I think it depends on the amount of powder and how much it has been ridden on during the day... towards the end of the day it can pile up and turn into moguls, then the difficulty is definitely harder than just ice!

||I have a Bonfire one, has lasted me 3 years so far, very warm and it was only $50!

||Definitely affects your performance... I wear the same old, rips in the knees pants that I've had for years. I've bought two new pairs since then and can't get myself to wear them, they just aren't as comfortable and don't let me move as much as the old ones...
