  2. 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.

  3. 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.   

  4. 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

  5. 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.
