Super-G Racer

Super-G Racer (6/10)

  1. Did you tell the lifty about your experience? They probably had no idea they were in the presence of greatness since most people that ski and ride left boulder after vail neutered it.
  2. That trail is super flat, but the real tragedy is what they did to timberline. It used to be a nice narrow winding trail, now its just a trail. before After
  3. Its a fundraiser for the ski for Colin charity. https://www.elkskier.com/events/ski-for-colin/ Its a bit interesting how you get the tickets, but you call/text the number listed there (I texted and got a response, none when I called) and the dude on the line reserves a ticket for you, and you pick it up at their booth in the lodge.
  4. Ive always been intrigued by saddlebacks above treeline stuff. Not much photo/video of it out there. Saddleback looks incredible. Maybe next year I will finally get there. The year I had a trio actually planned, they closed.
  5. North mountain out by ricketts glen had plans for a 1400 foot drop, same with miller mountain in tunkhannock. PA could have been the alps of the mid Atlantic /s.
  6. Looks like a fun time. Fun fact: Tussey was actually a much taller ski area on the other side of the gap, but was relocated to this location. The prior spot had 900 feet of vert. https://www.dcski.com/lostareas/viewlostprofile.php?id=95
  7. Big boulder opened today. They tied their opening day with a ski area in Alabama. Great job vail.
  8. Lift tickets are also only 40 bucks Monday though Wednesdays. Free rentals if you get there before 3pm. I did this a few years back. It was fun to switch to try skiing again for no extra cost for a handful of runs.
  9. Blue is certainly coming out swinging this year. I should have bought a pass. Next year it is happening for sure. The snowmaking cloud in the valley this morning is quite the sight.
  10. Its crazy that Boulder almost always opened first in PA, then vail comes in and now they aren't even a contender. Hell, blue fucking knob, the resort that runs off of redneck farts and fishing twine opened before boulder. Hopefully the park crew/groomers that worked at boulder park will start making parks elsewhere. I don't ride much park anymore, but when I did, the geometry and design of their jumps were incredible compared to everywhere else.
  11. I haven't been in a while, but when frost closed for the day, there was always a substantial line of cars heading to boulder. That was back when boulder did not open midweek until 3pm. Not sure what the hours and everything are now.
  12. Pretty cool video showing the changes at JFBB. They did more than just replacing a ton of lifts. https://www.facebook.com/watch/?v=1311420689606791 (facebook account not needed to watch) Hopefully vail will install lights at jack frost. Having to drive from one to another for night riding is stupid.
  13. I’ll take the long haul over the doubles at blue knob. I’m pretty sure they just let the local meth head run on a human hamster wheel for a free season pass to power those things. Not to mention I think the haul ropes needed to be shortened years back, so much slack and bounce even when not loaded.
