    Seriously, WTF is with this Weather?

    I’m back in VT this weekend, so it looks like I timed that one right...

    Is that snowmaking on an open trail in PA? What?

    Blue Mountain land ownership

    If they were somehow able to build their own little “village” with all the amenities they need, I’m sure they would do quite well. They could sell ski/water park packages, weddings, and have their own pretty decent restaurant. Nobody would need to leave unless they wanted to. I could see some people going to the casino, but who would go into the A?

    PPL Surcharge

    My guess is they went the surcharge route so that they don’t have to “raise” lift ticket prices or change all their flyers/pricing boards. That way they can drop it easily if their complaints somehow get addressed. Still crappy and nobody else’s problem then their own, but that’s probably the reasoning I would take.

    There are plenty of hotels down here with buses that go to the reception sites. My point is that shouldn’t make or break them using it as a wedding venue. However, I am sure that they would be able to sell hotel rooms in bunches if it ever got built.

    Although, it’s only a 20 minute drive to hotels on 145 and people drive a lot further than that for wedding receptions down here...

    I don’t disagree. I just think that all these little issues with CB and their operating procedures degrade its popularity, especially with hardcore skiers and riders to the point where it can’t even be considered to be the best.

    Skison 18/19

    The terrain looks heavenly, but that is some of the worst riding I’ve seen in some of the best powder I’ve seen...

    Catskills Trip Questions

    I have also started doing this at some of the lower end hotels I stay at. I mostly aim for mid grade well known chain hotels, but sometimes even they are a bit run down. Haven’t seen any yet, but it doesn’t hurt to check.

    Camelback Snowtubing Report - 11/24/2017

    Hogwash. Just start skiing bumps whenever you have the chance. Even if it is just the edge of Barney’s where you can hop back onto the groomed surface. Bump skiing is just like tree skiing except without the trees. It really comes down to learning your quick turns and hop turns. Once you get into the woods for real, you’ll never want to hit groomers again.

    Looks like a great early season day. How was the gondola and the new t2b route over the ski bridge? I definitely want to get back there, just don’t know if it will be this season. I always end up at Plattekill on a good snow day when I’m in the Catskillz.

    I wasn’t the biggest fan of Whiteface, but I’m definitely not hating on it. I would go back again. I still prefer Gore, but that’s just personal preference. I remember when you used to go to Stowe/Sugarbush every year. I always enjoyed those TR’s. Several were before I was at SR, and you always seemed to get it on good snow days. I was always jealous. Salty, if you’re looking for a new place in VT, you probably want to check out Sugarbush last. We just aren’t a groomer type mountain. Lots of fun in the trees and bumps, but grooming is definitely at a minimum on overall terrain.

    Killington 10-22-18

    I used to have Apple Pay on my phone, but when I went through an upgrade, it wiped it all, and I never went back. Now I just swipe or chip read. I’m not against it, I’m just lazy. I heard Killington had another record breaking year in terms of attendance, but still had some tickets available. I’m sure it was better for the access road businesses than it was Killington, but I’m sure they have figured out how to make a pretty penny after their 4th year at it. You’re adventurous for going out there Sally. I had a friend who worked there two years ago and had to run the shuttle bus, and he said it was absolute mayhem.

    Johnny Style is still stylin. I’m bummed that the only time I met him he wasn’t even rocking anything out of the ordinary...

    If you hope, you shall receive. It doesn’t take much to see why Blue took the mantle from CB as the most popular mountain on PASR...
