  1. Looks like they put a fan gun at the intersection of Switch and LMS. Should make for some better snow right there, but then again it's Blue.
  2. Best ski day so far at Blue this year, not sure what @Benm was smoking, but I wish he would share! Ok, substitute @GrilledSteezeSandwich post, since I'm currently drunk from sitting in the upper lodge for too long with @tarponhead and bar toad Keith. Arrived in the lower lot around 7:20am with little fanfare on the ride up. Nobody in the house at the moment, save Rodney and myself. Maybe @Dirtwolf in the PASR row, but not sure to some light flurries. 32' at the top, 34' in the lot. Bumpers started showing up a tad later. In line, snow started falling a bit harder which made for some nice ambiance. 2nd civilian chair with @Dirtwolf maybe? I don't remember. The snow was nice and grippy and no SP to slow you down. Paradise had some similar snow with a few ice spots here and there. Burma run was more/less empty but too much effort going over that far. Rode the Vista to see if anything else was done up top: nada. Did have a chat with a SP who pulled up. He said they were told definitely by the end of the year, if not before. Rest of the day was mostly hard flurries and lapping the ridge on Coming Soon and Paradise which was a ton of fun and some intense thigh burn. Kept @tarponhead out for 18 runs and then retired to parking lot and Last Run Lounge for beers. Did see @momskeeztoo was down on lower Coming Soon, but she said she was fine over a beer at Last Run Lounge. Still "snowing" here in H-town as I type this.
  3. Early morning conditions sucked, as they seemed to only put a skiff of new snow down on the existing trails and what they did put down wasn't good. They seemed to be more interested in starting to work on new terrain. However, later in the morning, the scraped off stuff on the edges of Coming Soon and lower Paradise turned into a lot of fun for some serious early season thigh burn.
  4. Cool! That it’s 4 days will help a lot as repetition is the key early on in order to get into the swing of it, then It’s a matter of keeping on doing it after the clinic is over to build up the muscle memory.
  5. Shorter, narrower and softer skis make it a lot easier to ski in the bumps, but learning the techniques will go a long way in being able to ski them regardless of the equipment. The biggest hurdle is looking down the bump line instead of at the bump immediately in front of you. Once you can get over the fear of not looking down, things start to click. Is it one of those Bumps for Boomers clinics? They'll probably work on the backsides (green line) first and move up to zipper depending on the abilities. You also probably have the luxury of natural bumps instead of man/machine made ones like we have back here. Have fun with it!
  6. I'm interested in how you make out in the bump clinic.
  7. Canopy done and grooming the ice...
  8. FYI... Blue is closed tomorrow, just so you know. There's a sign on the doors. Strange that there's nothing posted on social media though.
  9. Someone had a good idea to put it there. If it works out, it should be good for everyone. I wonder if they'll still have features on Come Around or just keep everything right there?
  10. Looks like they're putting a terrain park in up above the summit lodge in the old school area. Give the jibhonks their own carpet ride! https://fb.watch/g-13L7fzwy/
  11. They haven't been running that one yellow gun in the valley lately? This morning the poor thing's light isn't even blinking. ☹️

    How long?

    I have A kid, so I made him carry his own crap. 🤣

    How long?

    Perhaps the Bethlehem Ford guy because he's got money to burn, the others wouldn't be caught dead with one. I could see Nastar Glen pulling one around.

    How long?

    Will it be before we see someone dragging one of these through Blue's parking lot? Oi! https://trukii.com/?gclid=Cj0KCQiA4OybBhCzARIsAIcfn9mYBIlo5pGP7VzPL3aQZEViiceNVP-B0lNXRytnwGuwPzQLxNwYAH4aAnnIEALw_wcB
  15. Yeah, keeping snow off Lower Main where they still need to work makes sense.
  16. Why are they bothering with Burma? Why not just do the old Midway, Lower Main Street and damn the beginners?
  17. @AtomicSkier, @saltyant get up in the air and get some recon photos! You need to log more hours.
  18. Any sign of motor/bullwheel unit? Doesn't seem to be any from the pics.
  19. Also blowing top of Main and Burma.
  20. I just said the same thing in the Zee Lights thread.
  21. Looks like the sides of the bottom station came in the other day, but anyone see anything about the top part of the bottom station with the motor in it?
  22. That or at least a low-level flyover with pics by one of the PASR pilots...
