  1. Here's the video of Tuxedo Ridge. Ton of stuff left behind. The owners look like they just walked away six years ago. There's some great retro ski lifts if you're into that sort of thing. Two old Borvig double chairs and a very cool early 60s Poma double chair.
  2. I also just realized that I guess they could reuse the drive and chairs and hang them on one of the shared pylon lifts. Upgrading one side of the East Mountain lifts to a triple, for instance.
  3. Cheaper than going to a chiropractor.
  4. Oh you foolish foolish boys. This is how it all starts! I've seen it all before. I was there! It was called the 80's! Ford was President, Nixon was in the White House, Reagan was running this country into the ground. I was bumming in a hole in the wall town in what is now called Utah. Some fella from Colorado shows up and starts making all kinds of so called "improvements", right? Before we knew what hit us, the streets were running us with lattes! Yup! It got so bad that a fellow that liked to, you know, smoke a little grass or drink a little ripple. Crow like a rooster! Maybe challenge the m
  5. Let me know if you ever wanna go.
  6. The parking lot at the top of the mountain is a great make out spot. Then you get tacos on the way back.
  7. They turn that into a gift shop place in the off season. Unless you need an I ❤️ The Poconos hoodie and a pet rock.
  8. I've honestly never had a problem with Camelback. I mean, Camelback mountain, the physical mountain itself. It's not a bad little hill. It's everything else I don't like. I guess Barley Creek Brewing is ok. Last time I was there though they didn't toast the bun on my hamburger.
  9. I'd ask if anyone can guess it but... the hearse probably gives it away.
  10. Lots of condos and housing around lots of now lost ski areas too...
  11. All of Frost's top to bottom lifts are 70s or 80s Borvigs which share pylons. The exception is the quad chair which was down for the entirety of the 19/20 season, but it doesn't make sense that they'd reduce capacity there. Likewise for any of the other paired lifts. A triple chair would reduce capacity, unless it was a replacement for one of the two beginner double chairs but isn't the Green Ridge triple a longer lift?
  12. You're not going to hear anything until an investigation concludes and that could take months.
  13. Regional rail is great but needs more frequent service and a few late night trains. The subway in Philly is a use at your own risk situation right now. I've never seen it as bad down there since I moved to Philly for college 13 years ago.
  14. The stain line. The plain line. The tame line?
