Inexpensive Place to Stay near Waterville Valley Nordic?

I asked this a long time ago and remember somebody mentioning a ski dorm type place near Waterville Valley. Unfortunately, I can't find the name.

Pilot "Sport" Classic Binding?

Thanks for the link.

I'm just not seeing anything that stands out to justify saying they're "a big improvement" over profil. A little wider, and bumper is less likely to pop out. That's it?

How weird is to nap in a touring center?

Tired, and goaded by friends, I laid down on a bench in front of the
fire place at Trapps and took a nap (with a book on my stomach as a
visual aid). How weird does that look?

Seeking Some Info on Camp Mercier

SEPAQ closed the attic two-three years ago (probably because it was

Outdoor Glide Waxing

Maybe a portable space heater?

That's a good idea--I noticed the (new, improved) Craftsbury waxing
hut is unheated, but has a space heater above each station--could be a

Whatever Happened to All The "New Skate" Hub-bub??

Varying technique to fit the overall situation makes a lot of sense.

Can you explain this point of technique you associate with new skate:
