  1. Lift not running when we left at noon.. I saw there was POMA guy at top keeping bar from klunkimg your head. Anyone know why it stopped? Nice to see they were still blowing snow - hope the can get coming soon and nightmare open for Monday.
  2. I was up around 5AM and it appeared to me they were making snow on Upper Main at that time.
  3. Had something to do in the AM so didnt get on snow w/ kids & wife until after 1. Burma / Paradise were as mentioned very sloppy and annoyingly crowded at parts. Coming soon was still nice though and we lapped that 3X. Lift line started getting long with people still coming in when we left around 4. Happy to get a day in this early - Blue did good to get open with the limited snomaking temps they had to work with. They are blowing now hope they push it hard this week and open some more terrain.
  4. Makes sense, where did you see that? Website has no snow report I can find for current conditions let alone next week.
  5. Will be suprised if they open Saturday with current forecast, targeting Sunday - looks like the better bet. Monday / Tuesday don't look good expect them to close again til later in week if they open at all...will be interesting to see if they want to push it if/when snowmaking opens up on the overnights.
  6. Well i'll be. .. a f'in ding dong
  7. Sun is out! From what im seeing on cams conditions look better than i was expecting. The rain really obscured the views yesterday. Unfortunately im stuck at work.
  8. Great day at Blue. There at open conditions were great. Hit Challange first - soft and fast. Then over to TCS for many runs where conditions were even better. My boys found the trench on their own. Disappointed they were not running both doubles mid mountain. Skied til 12 then rolled booking our second day on next years pass. Crowds still coming in as we left. Interested to hear how the mountain holds up today, & tomorrow's high in the 70... Monday 67.
  9. Thanks appreciate the offer - hopefully I can contribute a couple decent beers to the mix. You set a high bar with that one.
  10. @psufly - nice beer - assume you brown bagged that one?
  11. I kept it brief. Started at 920...good til 12 then had issues in the group. Airhead nailed it....didn't want to step on your toes. 😁
  12. Chili & 2 Breck IPAs. Was looking for you to buy.
  13. Just left. It was great until it wasnt! Sloppy after lunch and they just shut down quad
  14. Funny shit. Hope to catch up sometime.
  15. Cool. What is the best chance solution for the aging quad? Replace in kind or reroute in said manner to the western top or both? I'd still hate for the Main St chair not to be an option. Thanks grilled...I already feel like I've been here for years
  16. Good evening all- been lurking here for a while. 1st - you guys do a great job keeping the forum "entertaining" and always have solid trip reports for Blue Mtn. Tomorrow will be trip 4 for me this season to Blue - last year went mostly to Elk and (1) sorry trip to Camelback. I've wanted to join for a while and saw something today on another forum that gave me a kick. The poster said freinds at Blue told him plans are permitted and approved for project this summer to add new lift at Blue. Maybe I missed it in another topic on this forum - if so sorry for the repost? I like the idea of the lift servicing the Western top as its a PITA to get accross when crowded and you want to change it up...dont like they are taking both chairs away mid mntn as that is fun to loop sometimes espically when crowds suck in the valley. Thoughts? The lift will have it's bottom terminal at the Valley Lodge. It will extend in a western direction to the very top of the mountain to where both Main St. and Burma twin double chairs end. , The existing Burma and Main st chairs will be removed, a good thing given their age.. Also removed is the short Valley lift starting just below the Mountain Lodge and going to the western summit.
