  4. Just booked Southwest to DEN for me and Pops 1/31 - 2/5. $90 round trip, but used points. Not sure we’ll go anywhere, but since I used points it’s fully refundable until last minute. Was gonna book it anyway since it’s LUV and would have had 1 yr from today to use credit if we had to cancel, but having enough points made it a no-brainer.

  5. Got most of the hardware mocked up for final assembly.....Just need to download the touring binding template....Voile's templates leave a lot to be desired too....but made everything work....Drill press made drilling the holes easy.....They even give you little Ptex discs for the t nuts....I am so curious about how this board will ride....

  7. Yes, these look like TechnoAlpin low energy tower guns. Basically a newer, efficient version of a York Snow Borax tower gun like you see on paradise, razors edge etc. I haven't been to blue in over 10 years, but back then they still had the old air/water style guns on Burma. Those were a combination of home made, omichron's on towers, and some really old spraying systems style guns when they dabbled in the snowmaking business back in the late 60's/early 70's. The advantage to these new guns are they are much more efficient in air consumption. Depending what they bought, you could probably

  8. Circa early 2015 Barb Green decided to have a statue of TP4 made at blue because: 1. TP4 is the best skier on the mountain 2. TP4’s unwavering support of blue has brought them much $ over the past 19 years 3. TP4 is a PASR legend the statue was built overlooking the Honey Bee Bowl. However, when the Pope came to Philly that summer he heard about the statue and requested it be moved to the Vatican Rose Garden, to which Barb obliged. However, as was mentioned earlier, the Pope has sent the statue back to blue to help bring positive winter vibes. It was put back in i

  11. I know most people probably don't care because it's a snowboard...but I'll be picking up another board from Buckman's this week....Capita Outerspace Living - love my other Capita board that I bought used, but it's getting pretty beat up at this point. Between the pre-season sale and the store credit from the tent sale (should be processed by now), I'll only end up paying about $275 for the board.

  14. Take one for the team. Wear a mask in line, and on the chair with people you dont know, or may even those you do know. Dont be part of the problem, be part of the solution. Here is how its gonna play out. 4 people get on the six. 2 of those people are bad asses, and masks arent cool, so they take them off, and now the 2 other people on the chair arent comfortable with that situation, they dont call the cops or anything, but now they decide they dont want to ride up with others they dont know. That 1 chair just became 2. and it just extrapolates from there. Might as well just be

  17. Hopefully people can just be respectful of what other people are comfortable with. I think some basic decency would go a long way. Not just PASRs, but people at the mountain in general.

  21. Remember in the beginning of the pandemic when people were patronizing local restaurants and shops and spending more money than they ordinarily would have for food or dropping big tips for haircuts or other services? Just use that logic with Blue and be happy that you're still getting the best deal in the state or a season pass.

  26. One can also look at an actuarial table and realize that the act of skiing is in and of itself a risk, one which likely poses greater chance of personal harm than the virus does. The virus only adds in a small additional layer of risk on top of an already risky endeavor, which you have consciously and of free will decided to partake in. A cautious person would therefore have to concede that they are worried about one risk but not another by looking for a Covid accommodation on a mountain. To bring it full circle, you can argue that the act of skiing has a built in risk aversion sys

  27. What makes it a weird argument also, is that its a leisure activity. One might be more likely to side with the cautious people at the grocery store or somewhere that you can't avoid going to sustain your well-being, but balk at the idea of cautious people asking for accomodation when they are doing a leisure activity by choice. On the other side of the coin though, is that everyone is out there doing a leisure activity and we can all just slow down a bit and be grateful that we get to do it this year.

  28. We skied Cooper.... It's small and up around 12000' feet in elevation (?). 10th Mountain Division had a training center there in WWII days. The bar area had about three tables and four bar stools.... No Coffee Mug for our collection.

  32. So we couldn't resist and went to the Big Snow last Monday night. Some pretty stressful driving during rush our, then looking for a place to park and even a way to get to the right place in that Big Ghost Town, but when we finally got to the slopes... Big smiles! It's white, it's cold, it's pretty laid back, and it looks steeper than in the pictures! No lines, not many people, 90% boarders. Luckily half of them go straight for the terrain park, which is thoughtfully separated from the main slope. It's a little steeper on top, I guess to allow to get up to speed faster, and is gradual

  36. Unfortunately by exposing low risk people, we expose high risk people. There isn't a practical way to take one society and strip out all the vulnerable people from it. If we knew that there were no long term effects from COVID like strokes or heart and lung damage or liver damage or mental changes, and we did have a way to identify and isolate every vulnerable person, then that makes sense. It's just not within our abilities. Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk

  37. If you look at the sun angle on the cord it looks like there is an obstruction caused by some machinery near the TP4 statue. I don't want to read into it too much, but it looks like they are removing the statue from its current location to place it at the top of the newly named TP4 trail that has been in the works for the last decade. Not trying to stir the pot, but I think that is the hidden message.

  38. Here is how it went down. Elk Mgr - ugh. This whole covid thing.....i dont think we should even open this year. Elk financial guy - we sold passes at the end of last season, and we spent that money already on trees. Elk maintenance guy - trees? Should i keep planting trees? Elk Mgr - yes. Keep planting trees. Its what we do. well, i guess we haaave to open then, its not like we can give the money back, and people already think Kalahari is buying us. Lets limit hours, and jack up prices. Not like we have a huge audience anyways. Elk financial guy - night skiing is total los

  43. Or, and hear me out here, regardless of who is in the White House it will not go away for years and years anyway. It's not like there is any country in the world, besides the small ones who completely shut down borders and did not have a ton of travel in and out anyway are doing much better. Is it still spreading? Of course it is and it will never stop spreading unless we shut down, which is wildly unpopular and also irresponsible. Is it killing people? Yes of course it is and it will continue to do so but there is no doubt that the deaths have slowed and will never get to zero. OK

  45. Being agile is key for any business, especially during a pandemic. Moves like this, even if they are just rumors and don't come true, mean that Blue is looking to do what is best for them in the short and long terms and what is good for Blue is ultimately good for us. Plus it's Sausage Sunday, not Sausage Wednesday Night.

  46. Do it. Im sure you will be able to get your money back from blue right now. It would be wise to do this now, rather than just be complaining about it over and over again during the season.

  47. I think for the older guns being replaced it's more like 15:1 or 20:1 replacement. That's why I think they'll be almost a whole trail ahead, that's how much air they're saving. Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
