    Who will be skiing this weekend?

    Hey, welcome aboard. You might have noticed some fairly useless posts in your thread so sorry about that. Kind of an inside joke thing I guess?


    To answer your question I don't think any of us will be at Jack Frost this weekend. The overwhelming majority of us go to Blue Mountain (the true mountain). Be sure to take some pics of Jack Frost and post up a trip report if your time there though!!!

    Still not as special as parking in the same row in the lower lot at Blue before lifts open every weekend day Dec-March to ski for a couple hours and then drink beer, I get that.

  3. Tussey isn't terrible. It serves the purpose and I've definitely had fun there in the past. Glad to see them getting involved with the Indy Pass, maybe it will get them some extra visits other than the small local area it services. As far as I know it's one of the only ski resorts in PA that has a local bus run to it.

  4. Half an inch of rain on Friday does not seem like good opening day weather. Saturday looks to be around 1/3 of an inch of rain and then some showers on Sunday. The smart thing to do would be to let the whales sit through the rain and then fire the guns back up Monday night when they get the next window of cold. 

    I could be wrong since I don't have any eyes on the buoy but that's what I would do with the current forecast.

    All of my negativity toward Vegas is a direct result of me being totally out of control and doing stupid shit a number of times.  

    Going to need a trip report for this one.

  6. Lots of talk about the end of serviceable life for two lifts that I've never had to scoot away from after hearing a horrible clanking noise and realizing it would probably be broken for at least 2 hours. 

    (I'm talking about a bad experience with the quad)

  7. That video popped up for me last night too. I watched it but I didn't think it really explained the price issues very well. 

    As much as I would love to use trains more (or at all) they are just too impractical and expensive compared to planes. 

    I could see the train they talked about running between Las Vegas and Los Angeles as being a real winner of a project but honestly just based on past history in this country the construction of the system will definitely somehow wind up costing something in the $Billions and therefore make the fares necessary to recoup the cost extremely high and it won't beat out cars or flights. 

    Side note, I just found out my company is in the beginning stages of working with Amtrak so I'll track down the specific people to blame for not having a high speed train between Philly and Blue Mountain.

    Sounds about right.  To me though, that goal of Dec 13th or whatever doesnt seem that far away.  this is a ton of work.  i would really like to see how the haul cable gets installed.  

    We have this week, next week is shortened then it's pretty much December. There are 3.5 working weeks until it's Christmas week. I think we are looking at getting the Summit Safari Super Six Pack Supreme as a New Year's present at this point. 

    Should we break a bottle of Champagne on it to christen it? 

  9. I think the S5 will be a great lift for mid morning because you can likely look straight behind you once you leave the station and get a perfect view of the PASR row to see how many beers are being consumed and if there is any smoke coming off of a grill.
