Making Turns

Making Turns (3/10)

  1. https://www.skibluemt.com/winter-sports/skiing-snowboarding/trail-map/ Check their list? They don't show Upper/Lower Switchback. There is an Upper/Lower Sidewinder, most call Lower Sidewinder the S-Turns. Also, there is an old connector that's mostly blocked by planted trees and a snowgun where you used to go from Xing across Main Street and over to what would be Lower Switchback - it also carries over via a cat track to Lazy Mile. That's one reason Xing is where it is.
  2. As soon as there's a connector/bypass around that steep bit, I bet it does get split from Two Tickets to Upper Ticket and Lower Ticket. For all the tiny trails at Blue, at least there aren't upper/lower pairs that can't have one part open without the other (IE Lower Main St can open without Upper, Nightmare doesn't have to be open to ski Dreamweaver, etc.). Shockingly, lower Lazy Mile could be a separate trail and isn't. Personally, I'm in favour of Valhalla for "Paradise for badasses" but they obviously aren't taking suggestions.
  3. I wish there was a poll feature so we could get a consensus on Burma Opening dates and Valley Opening dates. Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
  4. Main Street too, but it looks like maybe just the very bottom? Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
  5. If the forecast holds up for this week, that's every night at least from Sunday through Thursday they can run - five nights should be good enough to get lower Main at a minimum, no? Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
  6. There's a phrase, till it and kill it. Moving wet snow on warm ground is a great way to get it to melt. Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
  7. Early gravestones are really robbing Peter to pay Paul, right? Though maybe not enough'll die to make that kind of difference. Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
  8. The real question is how much of the stockpile will be left once the weather turns. Everything is northern exposure, and the piles should cool the ground down. That might give a good boost once the guns come back on even if it looks rough. With the relatively marginal forecast - high twenties after the 1st - that might make the difference.

  9. Ouch, nothing in the Vista lift corral. Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
  10. Do you mean portable fan guns? Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
  11. Don't they usually say three days around the clock? Seems like they're a day short. Not to be a Debbie Downer but besides Xmas 2015 for two days of grass skiing I don't remember them opening with just two nights of snowmaking. Maybe the long timers can correct me.

  12. There are some guns on skiers right of Vista but it doesn't look like they were running... Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
  13. Depends - Palmerton shows maybe a couple hours just before dawn, but they might get a degree or two colder up above the clouds, or the humidity could stay too high and skunk 'em. Tomorrow and Wednesday are the real opportunities. Or they might be out doing setup/system checks. Really it's borderline enough they easily might not go for it tonight, and I forgot that webcams exist so I asked here.
  14. Anyone got eyes on the lights tonight what with the weather coming? I only see their lot lights. Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
  15. There's also the "No shouting fire in a crowded theatre" restriction on freedom of speech. The right to peacefully assemble isn't an absolute and can be restricted - you don't typically complain about fire code limits in municipal buildings, but that's exactly the same restriction that's being applied here - it's unsafe to have a gathering larger than X, because there's a chance something might happen and hurt people at a larger gathering. As for cold weather, bring it on. Last year Blue was open by now. Sent from my XP8800 using Tapatalk
