  3. Really nice! Builder has about 2 more weeks of finish work that he will bust out when I leave for the weekend. Been coming up last few weeks to move stuff in. It’s so quiet and peaceful up here. I don’t have to see people if I don’t want to which I admit is nice sometimes. Tree guy has a few more days of clean up scheduled. And is going to cut this huge pile into firewood for me.

  5. The row of footings off to the side are for the chair parking rail. Mid Atlantic = ice storms. Western lifts usually don't need parking.

  6. starting to get a visual as to what this will end up looking like. i couldnt really figure out the multiple footings. this is Stowes lift, which is not the same make, but you can get the gist of it a little more.

  12. The big retaining wall and open space by Comet Lift was for a storage rail - they just never went back and added the rail itself. Neither current detach has a chair shed yet, but Ops really wishes they did some mornings.

  13. I think they definitely still intend to expand east. In the board meeting where they discussed buying that farm a few years ago Barb mentioned they wanted to add slopes over there. A hotel is going to happen of course. I think with KSL in charge it’s likely to go at the base. I get the feeling Barb was super emotionally invested in having it at the top and KSL is more likely to go with common sense. Will probably have an indoor waterpark unless they think the market saturation is too much and it would cannibalize Camelback too much. I’ve got even money odds on a mountain coaster next year. That a quick, relatively cheap addition. I wonder if there are any mountain coasters that load at the top then cart the rider back up to unload? Seems like that would be the most logical way to set it up and lump it in with the Summit Adventure stuff, unless they add more base activities at the same time.

  20. This is the communication cable, not the haul rope, but it’s still about 1.25 inch diameter. Not sure how thick the haul rope would be comparatively. The 1599 meter length stamped on the reel translates pretty exactly to the footage, though

  23. Definitely tiers below Fogo, but also much cheaper. On par with Rios over in Nazareth. The meats at both are all good and tasty, you aren't going to get the top end cuts like filet. The "sides" bar at both is also very minimal and *nothing* like at Fogo. I need to go back to Fogo, lol

  27. New name leaked? Main Street Express. By the news reporter in the clip here, so take it with a grain of salt: https://fox56.com/news/local/blue-mountain-resort-begins-lift-renovations Another interesting read, confirms that tower footers were set 8/15: https://fox56.com/news/local/blue-mountain-resort-begins-lift-renovations Of particular interest is the last line, Blue Mountain still has some lift chairs available for anyone who is interested.

  28. If steel starts showing up, I think they can get it together pretty quickly. Like Dan said, Blue is probably mostly out of the picture at this point. If they were building it in-house, I think we'd be ready to welcome it for the 2024 winter season. But contractors wanna get paid. The footers are all in, the site looks pretty well prepped, just need the lift to show up.

  29. Blue just posted a 30 second video on FB about how the new lift is "moving along" The overhead view does put things in a little better prospective.

  30. i would be surprised if Blue actually has much to do with this at this point. they are probably along for the ride as we are. Seems like Blue clearing the land for the liftline is innocent enough, but them being liable for actual construction seems unlikely. 1) let someone else assume the risk. 2) have some outside contractor to blame if its not done on time, or some other failure. Sort of wonder if there is a penalty clause with LP for completion by a certain date. With the way things are these days, i would doubt it.

  32. Tell them to move somewhere that isnt prone to hurricanes. Seriously, like it kills me when people in the Outer Banks are interviewed after a hurricane fucks their shit up, and they say "this is the third time we have had this happen." So, the thought never crossed your mind building a house on a barrier island might make it kind of likely to sustain damage from storms?

  40. This gives me flashbacks to July 4th weekend when I camped out and some boomers were playing beanbag for 5 hours straight until the wee hours in the morning (3 am) and yelling loudly depending on whether the beanbag would hit some wood, go inside of a hole, or even come to rest in a grassy lea. From all the yelling and merrymaking I had to transport my sleeping cot and pillow to a babbling Brook as to mask the loud noises of the night as the beanbags whirred through the humid mid-summer northern Pennsylvania night air amid all the hootin' and hollerin'.

  41. looks like the footers may be there after all, so that's good. I wonder if LP is behind on delivery, with supply chain issues? There's not a whole lot of steel sitting there. Didn't see any around the lots at the bottom anywhere when we were up on Sunday. The pics that were shared earlier in the thread that aren't available anymore because Instagram is stupid may not have been Blue's lift. It looked like cobblestone type lot in the pic, but I drove by those waterpark lots at the top on Sunday as well and they were empty. I wonder if Blue isn't behind so much as there's no reason for them to be rushing if they don't have the lift yet

  46. theres 41 days, but 24 hrs in a day, we still have more than 12 hrs of daylight. which, whenever i look at the Valley cam, theres never much going on before 7, and after 3. But i will give them the benefit of the doubt being a contractor, and go with "they know what they are doing." Maybe right now with concrete curing, there isnt much to do until they can start setting stuff. Curious as to what the top looks like.
