  1. Looks like we've got the start of a lower station going on!
  2. I hope the inside of the bubble is painted so it looks like you're at an actual mountain
  3. I'm glad Blue has all the brand new snow guns they ordered set up and ready to take advantage of cold temps when they become consistent! in boxes next to the chairlift shaped hole in the ground.
  4. Besides beer (of course) what can I bring to this pre season event?
  5. If they can't finish the lift they should at least let us go uphill on Burma
  6. 44 calendar days until they should open and the terminals aren't even on site. Glad there are a few guys working on that little building though.
  7. Is this an offer to carpool? Haha
  8. Well this throws a wrench in things
  9. https://www.skibluemt.com/winter-sports/skiing-snowboarding/name-our-new-trail/ Why do they still have a page about naming the new trail?
  10. Noon games should only be for FCS games, or maybe Rutgers.
  11. I'll volunteer to take you to Vegas and offer "supervision".
  12. The strip can definitely get cheesy quick but there are some great restaurants, shows, bars, pools, etc. I had a blast staying off of the strip, enjoying the big resort pool and desert sun and then also going way outside of town to drive quads in the desert.
  13. I also don't really get why there's such negativity towards Vegas. It can be really fun for a few days.
  14. I love a good conspiracy but maybe Leitner Poma did one of the other lifts and this is the way they distinguish it from the other one? I'm surprised it's not labeled as the lift name. Or a lift number
  15. My take: It would never take that many towers that close together to run the rope up. Also we all know that if you try to put 7 people on a 6 pack you'll be stopped above a pond, which seems to have been dug already. As a result I'm guessing that the one long footer on the left of the picture is what the station will sit on, you'll ride over the cut out area until you get to the first tower. No idea what the other footers are for.
  16. As of Saturday when @Benm took those pics it looks like there is still concrete to be poured.
  17. There are only 41 working days until Root Friday. They should start filming the daily push to the finish for a new A&E reality show.
  18. I think the thing that is really going to hold up this project is the fact that @AtomicSkier hasn't gotten certified on helicopters yet.
  19. Maybe, and this is pure speculation, since Blue and Camelback are the same company now they are using the same construction resources on both projects. I mean there can't be that many people on the East Coast that know how to install chair lifts right? Maybe the crew over in Tannersville will come over to Blue once they are done there and put in the more technical and higher visibility things.
  20. Original six pack for the first two runs to maybe snag some Razors then head over to the Summit Safari Six Pack Supreme for some fast main street laps.
  21. What PSI concrete do you think you need for a chairlift?
  22. It's been 3 weeks since they poured the concrete. Depending on how long they plan to let it cure before the towers are on it we could potentially see choppers as early as next week but worst case scenario they will bolt down the towers the week of the 26th.
  23. Thanks! Timing is weird that I got into remote work as most others are heading back to the office but I think its going to be great in terms of getting more days at Blue and the flexibility to travel for longer periods.
  24. Definitely a trip to Colorado for at least 4 ski days but unsure on anything else. Winter Park could definitely be fun too. Ideally any trip would be in February or even March. Last two years January was somewhat disappointing
  25. Hey PASR, I've got a new job with more flexibility now so it seems like a pass would now be a good idea. Anyone planning on a Western trip this year, or want to plan one? I snagged a 4 pack of tickets to use for 2 days at Loveland and am thinking maybe Epic day pass would be the way to go. So who wants to go west with me and @skiincy?
