    Octoberfest

    I love how you speak for the majority of PASR. If i could make it this weekend, I'd consider heading up. Octoberfest at Elk sounds like a fun time. The Beer is Cold.... They always organise a road trip for you bicycle riders too, on Saturday.

    55-65 minutes. Depending on how heavy your foot is... It's only 27 minutes from Clark's Summit at the end of NE Extension of the turnpike. And you live next door to the extension.... easy-peasy to get there GSS.

    Octoberfest

    Chets is always #1, the Lift has a new sign ;-) (haven't been there in years). Candlelight is under new ownership, foods good, large selection. Arlos will probably have some entertainment and good sammies etc. There's a new place near Arlos called the Speakeasy, heard it's pretty good. The Stonebridge Inn and Restaurant is closed, looking for new ownership.The Beacon bar and grille on 171 near Union Dale may be the other you're thinking of. Going upscale, Oliveris at Crystal lake is quite an experience but make reservations and always get the chefs' choice.

    This weekend, Saturday and Sunday is Octoberfest at Elk. You're all cordially invited. Practice riding the Elk Wagon, and take an exceedingly slow ride to the mountain top and enjoy the scenery. The Beer is Cold.....

    18/19 Opening day predictions

    Many (30?) years ago I knew some guys from a local ski shop skied the culm banks during the summer. They had pictures and beat up skis in their shop to prove it. *culm banks are mini mountains of waste processed coal.

    Coors Light cases, varies though depending on which beer brands are featured at the bar. Another suggestion bring some meat and it can be cooked over the round fire pit in the "half-way house" off the West slope... and don't forget the alcohol... Mid-week you can also park in the upper lot and avoid the "Elk Wagon" ride. Not possible on weekends and holiday weeks.

    If the PASR crew makes the trip on a Wednesday in January or February I should be able to get discount coupons for $25 lift tickets. Has to be a Wednesday, and that was the fee other years.....

    Oh yes, I'll be there..... and I don't stop and gawk at the scenery. One exception, my knees don't do bumps anymore.... And another, I usually take a trip to NH early January. Mohawk, Tuscarora, Iroquois and Lackawanna have been the last few trails to open the last several years. They concentrate on opening the West (quad) side first.

    They usually open with 5, but that includes the beginners and the West slope (1/2 way up mtn). They've had most of the mountain open by that week too, all depends on the weather. One thing, when they open a trail it is wall to wall with excellent conditions.

    Let me know too and I'll introduce you to the bartenders and buy you a beer....

    The trees lining the B & C lifts really block the cold winds and make the slow rides more comfortable. Downside, one can no longer watch the skiers on Susquehanna on the ride up... Mr Moore was the sole importer of VW to the Philadelphia market at one time.

    They also get some kind of a tax break because they are a registered "Tree Farm".... One Smart Business Man....
