    I have been wondering what the deal is with those shelters at Bigelow. Do you need DEEP permission to use them (they are actually in the Nipmuck State Forest, on Breakneck Pond)? I was at Bigelow skiing yesterday, and I think at least one of the shelters was in use. There were a couple of snow covered cars in the Bigelow parking lot that had obviously been there over night, and we smelled wood smoke coming from the direction of the shelter while skiing down the pond. They would be perfect for a camp and ride weekend, with tons of relatively unexplored territory around them.

    Again, grew up in NW CT. I used many a shelter backpacking without ever asking. And plenty of cowboy camping. But thats my 2cents, I just heard about how you can actually get use of them through that site hah.
    Don't buy upgrades; ride up grades.
