  1. Took advantage of (likely) the last day of touring the Pennsylvania steeps for a bit with this upcoming weather so I decided to check out an area that I've been eyeing up for a bit. With this last. 6" of dense snow I figured it should be safe to give it a shot. Ended up taking about 20 minutes of skinning to get to the zone I was interested in. Once I got there I made my way down through a Shicola Chute of tight trees which then opened up into a vista of the valley below. The snow was creamy and soft. After 750' of some good turns and a few areas where I had to pick my way thr

  3. Hey all. I'm back from a session at true mountain the blue mountain. Place was empty even though I didn't get on the snow until 8 20. Hit Sidewinder, lazy, and NMDW to start. Then 2 runs on switchback and lapped come around park. Actually did several rails without any beers being consumed and the jump there was pretty good. Bumps on chute...main street had soft snow but kinda choppy. Stopped riding probably around 10...had a beer in the lot with @mbike-ski. As we were finishing up, @Benmand @enjoralasand pops finished their session. Sausage Sunday with each of us having a

  6. My girlfriends and I rented a cabin in FairPlay for the weekend. Did a little ski tour on the way up. The trail we wanted (and is listed in a BC tour book) was not accessible. So we started in a forest road that intersected the trail after a while. First we hit a gate with tons of no trespassing signs about a mile in so we turned around and took the other fork. After about half a mile we hit another no trespassing gate. Hmmmm, so not exactly the day we wanted but we took turns breaking trail in about a foot of snow so got a workout in anyway. The summit skin we planned for tomorrow now loo

  8. Very fun day today! Headed up to East portal in Rollinsville. The last 4 days have been pretty windy so we knew the snow would not be great. But the weather today was calm with bluebird skies before snow rolls in tonight. Stas hats represented! Sketchy bridge crossing Panda zonked out in the car Just over 4 miles w about 1000’ of gain. I ended up taking a wrong turn and we literally ended up on the wrong side of the tracks, railroad tracks run next to trail. We thought we could go around but it was all fenced so it was kind of a pain in the ass going back uphill. Skis on had to

  9. Well, Rambo is open, and I checked it out (from the bottom). It's pretty damn steep, but too late in the day for me to get up there to do. I didn't get on the hill until 2:45pm, but the weather was *perfect*. Like 38F when I left the house, and low-mid 30s on the hill. Snow was perfectly chalking to fucking rip some turns for an hour. Sorry to get repetitive, but it's just so fucking nice ripping big groomers with nobody around after a day of work. Really does bring a smile to my face. Even got the #1 parking spot. I know @Barb always takes the bus, but late in the day I don't

  12. As a sun lover (according to @GrilledSteezeSandwich), today was 10/10. Temps in the low 30s, no wind, and plenty of sunshine. I went out for a 5 mile run at lunch time before heading up to the mountain around 2pm for 90 minutes of skiing in the sun with perfect conditions. Perfect end to the day.

Cloudy at the peak so it may not be the best day for pics but I'll see what I can do for my fellow PASRs. Stoked as always to be at the True beast of the east and one of my favorite places anywhere.

  15. Today was good ....until it wasn’t. I had a pretty scary incident happen to me. We amended our plan to be in the trees because the winds were brutal and temps frigid. We started at the French Gulch TH in Breckinridge. Absolutely puking snow when we got there. the snow was great. We started out with a gentle climb. When we reached Sally Mine we turned into the trees. Nobody had been on the tree section today so we were breaking trail. The incline increased a lot and at about the 2 mile mark into our day we decided to turn around since we were all freezing and getting bea

  16. Toured part of the way up Snodgrass after work today, taking a different, more technical ascent. Skin track was definitely a little icy, and glad I had the "grip" skins. Sun stayed away which made the climb quite pleasant. Found some mediocre untracked on the way back down, but any more sun and it's cooked. Stopped after 1.9 miles and 1100ft of climbing. I can definitely tell I'm getting more proficient, efficient, and faster while touring.

  19. Skied the first hour before work with [mention]Benm [/mention]and the snow sucked. Frozen solid even though it said 35° at 9. Grooming was spicy with lots of dips from melting. Nice to chat with [mention]Kyle [/mention]in the lot before leaving too. Saw a phone from the lift and grabbed it on the way down sidewinder. Still had battery left and one of the phone numbers I could see on the Lock Screen was his moms. She wasn’t happy he lost it last night and couldn’t find it. He’s in south Jerz so I mailed it and they’re quite happy. I’ll be back tonight with the fam and hoping for softer condi

  20. Alas I don't have many details to give but some kid named Mike who I saw last night too had a big ass bag from McDonald's. He was chowing down on a McChicken and handing them out to his friends before loudly asking the sizeable line if anyone wanted a McChicken. A random all the way on the other side got the first one air mailed to him. Then after a second of thought I realized I did want a McChicken and he handed me one. I asked his name and then agreed with his friend that Mike was a legend and then I got on the lift never to see him again enjoying a delicious chicken sandwich. Wher

  21. @saltyant I have a pair of these you can borrow for your trip. Might make your parking situation easier to sort out. These will fit in your overhead bag so you won't even have to deal with lugging a ski bag around the airport, shuttles, etc.

  23. Damn, these people suck! Their financial skills are non-existent. Marketing must be a bunch of college dropouts. And they obviously can't read because otherwise they'd just take a peek here and would know right away that all this time they were leaving money on the table selling adult limited passes for $349. Today was gorgeous. Started a little cold and cloudy, but as the day progressed, the clouds got blown away, and the afternoon ended up being sunny and nice. I have to say that these guys are in no hurry starting their lifts on a weekday. If last time everything was already

  24. Hey All, I’m back from another fun morning at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower lot at 720am and it was 34 degrees under partly sunny sky’s. In the house were BenM, ZZSlope, Bethlehem Ford Guy and a lot of boomers. Second civilian 6 pack..I let the weirdo with the full face silver helmet get first one as his gate opened earlier. Challenge was nice for first run, smooth and fast. Sidewinder not quite as good. Switchback was nice with a few undulations to keep you on your toes. Paradise was nice and fast. Midway and lower Main Street had mini cooki

  25. Skied 6-730 with ~40° and snow was decent. We’re working on turns with the 4 year old so we lapped Burma(the “playground” aka Yeti Park is a fan favorite) and finished with Lazy. Added two new trails to list with bottom part of Windowmaker and Lower Sidewinder so we should be on Challenge in no time. Booting up we heard a car accident right at the entrance/exit to lower lot. Falco and Charles had a better look then my view but it didn’t look good. A Blue Subaru was leaving and it looks like a car came from the last row on the right and sideswiped him. He didn’t look happy. Looked like it too

  27. Senior year of high school the ski club took a trip to park city. We befriended a bus driver who bought everyone booze and cigarettes. One night driving through town we asked him to run over a stop sign and he actually did it. We all cheered as the bus drove away from the mangled stop sign. It layed on the side of the road the rest of the trip

  28. Hey All, I’m back from a short and wet session at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower lot at 715am and it was raining and in the mid 30s. In the house were Toast, Mixilplix, MBike mike, Nastar Glenn, GahSkier George, Mute, Ryan, boo bear, mutes kid and Bethlehem Ford Guy. First civilian six pack and first run on razors with an inch and a half of rain soaked fresh. The top section I was milking the fresh then went more straight on the rest..challenge was groomed more recently and was super smooth...some of the best rainy conditions I’ve experience

  30. Snow was awesome today. I would have been pissed at myself if I skied yesterday morning in the rain and missed today’s pre-rain window. Skied 8 beautiful rain free runs plus two in the light stuff once it started. Run of the day was definitely Switchback, also enjoyed Sidewinder more than average. Main Street was pretty variable by the time we got on it, Lower worse than Upler but skiers left was decent. Good time in the lot, ez up was clutch and I’m glad those burgers didn’t suck since they were just a premade frozen patty. And @GrilledSteezeSandwichhelmets were only on until the ez

  31. For a Sunday I'm astonished at how quickly I can board many of the lifts. I found a nice one that I can keep lapping some fun runs. But yeah, I always try to be a contrarian and do what the crowds dont. Sun's out, blue skies, amazing snow conditions. It doesn't get better than this!

  35. I was thinking about this as I was trudging through the mud on my way out tonight. If blue wants to charge the highest prices in the area, i think it puts them under a microscope. For example people may now start to question things. "will they ever put lights / snowmaking on coming soon?" "Why are my boots caked in mud simply because I walked to my car"? "Why did the meteor crater sized pot holes f up my tires. For $600 I shouldn't have to deal with that." "Why does this lift keep stopping"? "Why can't I ski razors ever...I pay $600 but the race team gets preferential treatment". In other wor

  37. Tonight was super good !!!! I do still wish they were open to 10 but it cleared out by 8 and no more lift lines. They did stop running the quad around 730 which is a bitch ass move that made the sixer line stupid long but the dirty double had no line. Snow was perfect soft unevenness, fast but little airs all over the place and junk snow skiing. I haven't skied many nights and forgot how fun it is when the snow is good bad. It was warm and I was super thirsty leaving so super shout out to the beer fairy who l left a most delicious beer for me ! Cough mute cough lol

  43. Arrived not too long ago. Took just over 4 hours to get here from greek peak. About 4.5 with a few stops. The Wendy's Asiago chicken ranch whatever on a pretzel bun is the fuckin bomb btw. Today was awesome. Greek peak is a freaking treat. I can't believe this was my first time skiing it. Worth 2 hours from the Poconos and will be back.. There's a crap ton of tree skiing and I wasn't expecting the old school vibe. It was busy but never waited more than 2 minutes for a lift. Was really impressed with some of the steeper pitches there. Stoked for the main event tomorrow however. Time to check t

  45. Sorry, didn't post yesterday, just had a big work project go production yesterday so had some clean up to do. Only skied for about an hour, but it was another perfect day. It's so refreshing to crush some sunny groomers at the end of the day in mild low 30s weather. Great way to end the day.

In the house were Johnny Law, Drew, C1er and Bethlehem ford guy. I easily made first civilian 6-pack and began on challenge which was super nice smooth cord, sidewinder similar and switchback was my favorite today, mainly because all but my last run on it was empty. Razors had some cookie chop but at least the Root rollers are smoothed out and midway and lazy were both good as well. I skied
