    Elk Sold

    Every time this thread gets bumped I keep hoping it’s about elk actually being sold. But yeah, elk is too far out there to really attract anyone at night. Why drive to elk if blue,can, and montage are all closer (for night skiing). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Let me rephrase then... I can go to many hills in PA that get dog shit for snow, that have some sort of marked glades. Elk generally gets snow needed for a hill in pa to have some marked glades, and it sure as hell has the terrain for it, yet it’s not allowed. Kind of like snorkeling being illegal in Florida where the water is clear, but jersey beaches allowing it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. My grandparents used to live out by tunkhannock and there was always a few inches of base throughout winter. There were even a few old ski areas that we would hike. Maybe a few hundred feet of vert, but it was still awesome. Miller Mountain now has a giant well mowed gas pipeline cut going up, across, and down it. I’ve been eying it up since they cut it a few years back. It’s 1500 vertical feet, not steep but it appears to have the same grade as some blue or green trails with some steeper headwalls.

    I was excited when I thought this was real. Waiting on new owners before I drive that far again. Great mountain but if I can ride trees at blue which is half the distance, there really isn’t a reason to go. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I feel like the area that size in south jersey could make it nowadays. Tons of small Midwest hills still in business. A couple cold nights with fan guns could bury a hill that size for the season. The location for holly is too far out, but you used to be able to see ski mountain from the Walt Whitman bridge. Especially with terrain parks being popular. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. The wissahickon club got hit by a tornado a couple years ago and some trees fell onto the lift. I don’t think they did any repairs. As for holly mountain, its just a few miles from Salem. I checked the place out a few years ago, but you can barely tell anything was there. Even flew a drone over the place and the trails are barely visible. The top terminal for the lift is still there.

  8. With the crowds they get you don’t need to rent it out. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Saw ticket on Liftopia for 30 bucks, so I bought it. My usual day trips have been to hunter, so i figured whats an extra 20 minutes. It was completely worth it, and If I’m riding the Catskills in the future, I’m going here. The Catskills always seemed to have winter, even when the poconos did not. There wasn’t any snow on the ride up, except for higher elevations in the Catskills. I’m always wowed by the view of the Catskills when they first come into sight on the thruway. There only a coating of snow on the ground as i got near Belleayre, but cover looked good up high. After Belleayre,
  10. Greek peak is great and western ny can get some good snow when it’s bare at other spots Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Campgaw also has some longer windier trails off the side and from the YouTube videos I looked up a pretty good park. I might have to stop on the way home from hunter one day for a few turns just in case. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. I wonder how much longer campgaw will stay open. Their demographic is people in the city and urban nj areas looking for an easy place to learn, and big snow seems poised to capture those people.
  13. Since this will be my last year on a super pass situation, I figured I would try and hit some hills I’d never go and pay a day price for. Last time out I went to Liberty and roundtop. This time I’d go to whitetail. Watching the weather and their webcams, they were basically brought back to nothing and had to close. Before today they had about a solid week of snowmaking temps. I also noticed the weather at whitetail is pretty much the same as my home in south jersey save for a few degrees here and there, so today was my chance to hit them with good conditions this year. I left early and made
  14. Looks like the buildings are gone. Report says other resorts are risk. Pretty crazy situation down there. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Roundtop Took what seemed like 45 minutes to get from liberty to Roundtop. Roundtop reminds me of spring mountain, it’s lame and there’s houses nearby. You can see the strange looking bump quite a while before you get there I got a a spot right at the lift. The snow was some of the iciest snow I’ve ridden in years. The layout it very boring and nothing steep was open. The crowds were crappy too. They would always stop right at the bottom of an icy headwall and Wonder why someone almost hit them. So that was that. I’m glad I went but these bills are way smaller than advertised, ski
