  1. Hey All, I'm back from a fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. At 730AM it was around 2 degrees with 15-20mph winds actually warmer than expected. There were a lot of PASRs in the house including Atomic Jeff, Shadows, Enjorales, JFDan, Root, Ryan, Toast, Matt Edge, Johnny Law, Justo, the real KT, T maki, skier112, Indiggio, mbikeMike, Mrs Snowbunski and many others. As always the gates opened before the liftees got ok but first chair was had. I had a very nice first run on Razors before it was closed to the race team was between hardpack and aoftpack not bad challenge was good for run number two followed by nightmare to dreamweaver which was even better. Run number four usually would be sidewinder which was closed with five groomers grooming out the new blown snow compete with a winch cat Swithback was pretty good and I skied that three times total. It as a bit of a wind tunnel so I tucked the top half befor the two big turns. I didnt ski lazy mile because I heard it wasn't that good then back to nightmare dreamweaver and another challenge run which was still pretty nice and then we waited 2-3 minutes at the rope drop for sidewinder and high tailed it down and it was like Toasts favorite Katie perry song hot and cold. Some good areas and some bad. I skied another sidewinder run with matt edge behind shadows and hit the fresh manmade pow under the lift on the left side near the bottom. My feet ended up frozen everything else was ok and it took some effort to get boots off. I had some beers in the lot and thought about going back out with a few PASRs but my boots were solid as a rock and I got some really nice cord and empty runs today and will be back tomorrow. The ambient temperature will be colder initially but less wind
  2. This is the Official Roll Call Thread for 2018-2019 Ski Season PASR Camelback Day. The date is Monday, March 4 at 9:00 am, at which time I will ascend the Stevenson Chair for the first time in almost a year to the astonishingly high elevation of nearly 2,000 feet in the Pocono Mountains and make an epic run down Nile Mile, then maybe Marjie's Delight and some other awesome black diamonds. There are discount tickets available at Buckman's for the low, low price of $42, and the best part is they're refundable, in case you decide not to ski one of the best mountains on the east coast (which would be insanity). So far those attending will be: - saltyant (83% chance of going) - Enjoralas (possibly) - Enjoralas's Dad (possibly) - and many, many more PASRs (definitely)
  3. Really looks like some favorable snowmaking conditions come this weekend. Without a doubt, i would say BBEPIC fires up Thursday PM. At least i think based on the forecast, Peak would. we will see. Whats Blue gonna do? Is the carpet and massage parlor done at the lower lodge? Will it class the place up enough? Might need a hand to expedite the Blue Mountain PASR Parking Lot Lodge sooner than anticipated.
  4. Hey all, Just got back from a fun session at Camelback, and it was the best session I had there all season. In da house were Enjoralas, Enjoralas's Dad, and many many others. I arrived at the CBK Lodge bright and early at 0828 and had the first civilian parking spot, which was only 26 steps from the snow. This spot was easily the best parking spot I've ever had at any ski resort. I skied down to the Stevenson Lift at 0846 and there were maybe 12 people in line already on the hotel side. But since they dilly dallyed around, I got the first civilian chair of the day which was sick and I only had to share it with one other dude. First run down Pocono Raceway was deeeeep - 3, perhaps 4 inches of fresh Powder. I gasped for air because I forgot my snorkel, but it was an amazing run. Then I did Nile Mile, which was groomed, and some other very exciting runs. Shortly before 1000 I ran into Enjoralas & his dad, and we did several runs together. Enjoralas referred to the new terrain park as a Toboggan Sled, since skier's left is narrow AF, and there's no barrier on the left to prevent accidental skiing into the woods. This trail was not so great and had thick ice sheets at the top. Rest of the trails got choppy, and there were moguls on all black runs, Cliffhanger (a true double black), and Big Pocono. Enjoralas did Big Pocono and then we did The Rocket together which was ROTD. Lots of nice fresh purd and not a whole lot of ice. Then we split and met up again later in the day, and I went inside for some coffee and a double Steezeburger. It was baffling because they put the sugar by the ketchup, outside of the cafeteria area, instead of next to the coffee, cream, stirrers, etc. A worker admitted it's a stupid arrangement. Overall it was a very fun day, one of the best of the skison without a doubt. Nile Mile and Julius Caesar became downright rowdy by the afternoon, despite being easy runs, with plenty of Rollers which gave me mad air (about 2 inches). I think it was gaper day because there were so many gapers. One guy was sitting right under a huge jump on Pharoah, in the blind spot. You know just hanging out. I heckled him and told him that's not the smartest place on the mountain to sit. Also getting off lifts was hard today, and 50% of lift disembarkings involved dodging fallen jerrys. Two interesting interactions on the lift. Some girl told me she works in an ER and sees traumatic brain injuries from skiing all the time, yet she doesn't wear a helmet so I called her out on that. Also some guy called me a giant fucking toolbag because I accidentally cut in line... I thought there were 3 people in the row I joined but there were 4, so I went ahead. This is the second time I accidentally cut in line, yesterday I did by accident at the Dollar General buying a giant bag of Meow Mix and some guy said "How Wude" or something. Maybe tomorrow I'll make it 3 in a row. Overall JADIP SU JO PO. Please post all dinner pictures and related discussions in the comments below:
  5. Hey All, It’s almost the weekend. Is anybody going to be at Blue mountain the true mountain? Looks like some sunshine and semi springlike weather this weekend...could be good!!!
  6. Hey All, Im back from a fun night session at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower lot at 6:38PM and it was in the upper 20s with light winds. In the house were Atomic Jeff, Johnny Law and a couple hundred peeps mainly younger snowboarders..just a few buses. Razors was open..horray and it was nice..amazing what a little manmade snow can do to eliminate the sugar and turn the snow into soft chalk. I skied Razors Edge every run but one run on nightmare dreamweaver which still has a few Root rollers but has mellowed out a little bit I liked Razors better even though NMDW was a bit faster. I skied until 8:50pm and then enjoyed a milkshake beer Atomic Jeff brought and perpetual that has been sitting in my backseat for a week. I was tired when I arrived at Blue but the skiing gave me a burst of energy. When returning to my hotel with my ski boots in my hand some homeys from Baton Rouge LA were like,”you ski”..a variation from “Jew ski” and I said yeah I’m a skier and the dude gave me a fist 🤛 real grown man shit right there..damn it feels good to be a skier!!!!
  7. Hey All, I’m back from a fun Saturday morning session at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower lot at 718am and it was 28 degrees under clear sky’s. In the house were Atomic Jeff, JFDan, Ryan, Mute, Toast, Johnny Law, Nazareth Jay, Indiggio, Schifdawg, Tarpenhead, Slim, Gary, GSSUcks, Justo, Rose, Ty, ZZSlope, Joan and many others. I ended up with second civilian chair and guy on lift asked if we were all locals then was like the lehigh valley chamber of commerce. Another guy on the ride talked about having the Ikon pass and I said definitely use it at Jackson hole it’s the best place on the Ikon pass and he said that copper and steamboat are on it..ok. First run on challenge was better than expected smooth and firm. I skipped second run on Sidewinder due to the Root rollers and did a repeat on challenge. Then a few laps on Switchback which was good but lower park was like the beach..lots of sandy sugar. The patroller who was on my case Thursday was out again and I found a window where he was on a different run for a speed run on paradise and it was ok..lazy mile also wasn’t bad initially as was upper Main Street. I tried some of the Main Street bumps and they were big and icy...Crowds were solid not crazy record setting but substantial. The lot was fun with lots of snacks and enjorales brought a few waffles for us and they were good. All in all it was a fun time on the slopes. I’d like to ski tomorrow late morning when the rain ends. Arrival time TBA.
  8. Hey All, I’m back from another fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower lot at 7:19AM and it was a comfortable 28 degrees under mostly cloudy sky’s. In the house were Atomic Jeff, JFDan, Johnny Law, Shadows, Salty, employee in our row, MBike Mike, Mrs snowbunski, Ryan, Root, Antman, Mute, Toast, Justo, Rose, Eaf, Ski2Live, Ty, AngryHugo, Schifdawg, enjorales, Enjorales dad, Slim, concussion Ted and many others. I ended up on the second civilian six pack and challenge was sweet cord..Main Street was the run of the day and so good..switchback was ok early and got icy..nightmare to dreamweaver was also good early and I even sampled lazy mike once and saw toast and shadows on tele skis. Razors was closed due to racing. No real serious liftlines but definitely a lot of people out and Blue was making some Johnny cash. The parking lot was fun with beer and all all sorts of grilled meats thanks to Enjorales and later I even had two of MBike mikes famous beef and cheese sandwiches when it was 40 degrees and the sun was coming out. All in all it was a really fun sausage Sunday with a lot of PASRs in attendance.
  9. Hey all; just concluded another fun session at Blue Mountain, the truest of mountains. Representing PASR were Atomic, Toast, Johnny Law, NMSki, M-Bike-Ski, Matt Edge, Philly Core, and many, many, many others. Pulled into the Upper Lot at 0744 hours and not many cars were parked there which was surprising. Made it to rope drop with 7 minutes to spare so I sat on the lounge chairs to save my leg strength. First run down Midway was mad steezy. First run down Main Street was mad steezy. Both runs had wall to wall corduroy which was fun to ski. Then Lazy Mile was also quite steezy. Paradise sucked hardcore and was barely skiable. By far the most horrendous run of the day. Burma was OK. Falls was rad. The highlight of the day was when the PASRs appeared out of nowhere and Atomic made an attempt to steal my ski poles on Homestretch, and he allegedly crashed in that attempt though I didnt actually witness it. This is all hearsay from Atomic. Maybe next time he will snatch my ski poles on Homestretch but today wasnt that day. I'll be extra cognizant of my surroundings on Home Stretch from now on and watch for potential pirates. Called it quits around 1016 and had cold frozen coffee in my car. Overall a decent day, JADIP, Ice is Nice, Dress like a Cosmonaut.
  10. Hey All, I’m back from a fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower lot at 720am and the temperature was in the low 40s under overcast sky’s with fog on the upper mountain extending to the peak. In the house were Atomic Jeff, JFDan, Ryan, Mute, Toast, Schifdawg GSSucks, Ty, Shadows, T Maki, West Chester homeys, Indiggio, Tarponhead, JLaw and many others. First civilian six pack and the six pack ran flawlessly I don’t think it stopped once..Main Street was a carpet first thing but poor visibility on the top half..lazy to the falls also good. Concussion Ted was making sure that nobody was going on paradise while the patrol got it ready with bamboo lollipops yeah it definitely wasn’t sucker free. I skied the Barney’s Bumps once and they were pretty nice..small but carvable..the snow was hero snow and not that crazy choppy at least from 8-10...paradise was a little more firm and spicy..Lazy mike became crazy mike was some serious needle threading. Was a nice session totally ski on ended up skiing I believe 13 runs and then retired to the parking lot for a couple beers. No BMDI tomorrow and I fear no skiing tomorrow AM with the weather forecast. A fre pics. Shout out to Barb with the 80s music and some early fog and mist which cleared then set in and cleared again. JADIP

  12. Hey All, I’m back from a fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. I finished off the work day with a nice preneed sale(bonus business) followed up with a very empty and fully open Blue mountain. I stopped at Sheetz on the drive up and had two hot dogs and an iced tea then pulled into the lower lot at 419PM..high tailed it to the water closet as nature called..I think I actually trotted to the bathroom..stage 3.5!! Atomic Jeff arrived about ten minutes later and we began on Razors ledge which was choppy up top and smooth spring snow lower 2/3..Nightmare to dream weaver was smooth on the top and choppy after the big turn. Temperatures were around 40 and light rain began to fall around 500PM just as Eaf predicted. Main Street had great carving snow on the top and moderate chop on the lower half. After 7 runs we went to the parking lot and NMSki and Ryan arrived. I had a citrus IPA in the lot and some pretzels and took a pocket beer with me..repeated Main Street, NMDW and mostly skied razors..rain held off a few runs then began to fall again. Total count for me was 7 razors runs, 5 nightmare dreamweaver runs and 2 on Main Street. I retired to the lot around 710pm with Atomic Jeff and Ryan and NMSki managed 4-5 more runs until 750pm Fun was had in the lot I drank one of Atomic Jeff’s beers which was 8.5% and NMSki offered me a beer and I said only if it was under 11% and it was 10% so all good..it’s hard to remember a rainy night skiing session on 3/27 that was fully opened at Blue and it was a great time skiing..I’m sore of out of touch but I think they’re closed tomorrow and Thursday due to rain but it should be litty like bouncing titties Friday and Saturday. While hanging out there was a party suburban with all kinds of lights. Was badass..like a mobile DJ. Sick bird. Just as we were leaving around 9pm they even put on a torch light parade and I snapped this sick picture.
  13. It sucks. A little bit of groomed snow covering up ice like the surface of the moon. Shuttle is nice.
  14. Epic. Rad. Insane Gnarliness. Out of this world. These are just a few of the many phrases said throughout Camelback today. Personally, I myself am at a loss for words, because opening day could not have possibly been any better. The day everyone on PASR has been waiting for had finally arrived. I blew the dust off of my Hero Pass and headed toward the largest ski resort in Tannersville. Upon arrival around 7:50 am, I was expecting to join the peasants (non-season passholders) in Lot 3, since the awful news was broken the night before on Facebook that preferred parking is suddenly no longer a perk for season pass holders. But Lot 3 was mysteriously empty, and there was literally only one other car (pics below). I had virtually all of Lot 3 for pre-opening day festivities (i.e. putting on ski gear). After enduring the agonizing hardship of walking up a flight of steps in ski boots while carrying Elon skis, I gradually made my way to the queue for first chair. I was anticipating at least 200 people to be waiting, but to my surprise there were only 2 people in line, including the woman with a rainbow hat (now famous along with myself). It was now a 30 minute wait for first chair. Club music was blaring, so it was difficult to converse with fellow Camelbackians. But I did learn that the rainbow hatted woman's friend broke his arm at Blue last Friday, on the Black Diamond, on opening day. In light of this tragic news, I decided I would take it easy today and limit my speed to 39 mph (probably a world record) to avoid a similar fate. 10 minutes prior to launch, the anticipation was at insane levels. The camel came out to celebrate and high five everyone. Camera lights were going off in all directions as the paparazzi began snapping pictures left and right. As a result, I donned by fighter pilot style goggles (Smith I/OX) so no one would recognize me once I achieved celebrity status later that day by being featured in Camelback promos. Lift off time had come and gone. Apparently, the cat was making some last minute touchups to the powder high up on the pistes. Even though I could not contain my excitement, the delay was slightly irritating. 10 minutes had passed, and it was now 8:40. This travesty would later cost me one run. Finally, the big countdown came. The cheering commenced and I skied through the opening day sign with 3 other people to ride the 4 pack. However, 2 of the people irrevocably lost their chance at first chair of the season by making a gaper-level mistake, so I joined a man who had just returned from skiing in Vermont for the 3.5 minute lift ride. Conditions at the top of Upper Marc Antony, and elsewhere on the first run, were crazy good. Hard pack snow with fresh corduroy. I blasted away from the Sullivan lift as fast as I could, and before long I had the whole run to myself. I had never made the first civilian run of a season, so this was surely a life changing experience. From much discussion on PASR forums over the past week, I was concerned that coverage would be thin and sparse. But the guy from Vermont literally told me (yes, true story, not making this up) that they had been stockpiling snow at the top of the mountain over the past few weeks. My inclination is because it's easier (and cheaper) to push the snow downhill. The top of the hill is out of view from the 5 online webcams. I felt vindicated and have recorded audio from this anonymous source as proof. After reaching an exhilarating top speed of 34 mph (nearing world record speeds), I reached the bottom of Honeymoon and approached the Sullivan lift. The camel high-fived me and life was good. An official with a mic congratulated me for an excellent run, and fortunately I had not taken a fall and ruined this gnarly experience. After 5 runs, I decided to take a break and check out the free hot chocolate and sugar cookies. At this time, I overheard the magical news that they are giving away 1,800 snowtubing tickets to hotel guests (true story). So to everyone on PASR, definitely make time to stay at their hotel, before the tickets run out, and you too can galactic tube. Around this time I also met Ski2Live Live2Ski, who I would not have met if I had not noticed his white poles and lime green marking on his Volkl skis. Ski2Live and I did a few runs together before tragedy struck. In my futile attempt to perform aggressive carving on Upper Marc Antony (yes, a green hill), and show off in front of Ski2Live, I managed my first full yard-sale of the season. The powder was beginning to get tracked out, and I caught an edge. Fortunately, I was not injured except for my pride, and Ski2Live was cool about it and refrained from making gaper jokes. Shaken from this bad fall, I returned to making pizza on Upper Marc Antony for a while, since the narrowness of the piste makes it a little more difficult to make turns. By the end of the day, once conditions improved, I was skiing this piste like a badass again and returned to true parallel skiing. Ski2Live and I took a break. I had some free hot chocolate and scarfed down as many free sugar cookies as I could eat to avoid paying ridiculous food prices. Time was limited, since the slopes closed at 4:00 pm, so I skipped my normal routine of taking a mid-session lunch break at East Gourmet Buffet. Fortunately, the sugar from the free hot chocolate and cookies sustained my energy levels enough to allow me to make a whopping 51 runs, with 29,059 feet of vertical (actual proof below). Not too long after our break, Ski2Live departed to pursue band rehearsals, and I skied the remainder of the day mostly solo. On the final run of the day, I met a cool dude (also named Joe) who shares similar interests as me, and we conversed for a while even after the closure of the Sullivan Lift. Overall, the day was just awesome. Crowds were virtually non-existent, and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. There was never more than a 15 second wait on the Sullivan Lift, a stark contrast from what we'll have to deal with just one month from now. The only issue I had all day (besides the infamous yard sale) was snowboarders sporadically moving across the narrow Upper Marc Antony, with one near-miss. Also, it was sad to see 2 injuries and the use of the rescue toboggan on the first day. At the same time, it was entertaining watching 2 gapers walking down honeymoon after realizing they had bitten off more than they could chew. I am excited for many more trails to open next week and will post further trip reports. *** Bonus first run of the season video coming soon ***
  15. Saturday, January 13, 2018 My Couch I planned for today’s trip by checking the weather forecast carefully throughout Friday evening and then not setting my alarm for Saturday morning. Just no. Awakening at a positively adolescent 7am, I loaded my gear onto the coffee table and began the day’s mission. Stoke levels were high, since the weather was warm and dry; really perfect essay-grading conditions. I chose my 13-inch MacBook Air, which I think was the right tool for the conditions. Definitely the right length, though I could have gone with a 15” for more visibility. There were no crowds at the couch save for an old, snoring tabby. I estimated being able to get in about 7-10 essays per hour and I wasn’t wrong. Low stoke level. In a total gaper move, I checked PASR before getting started. A real distraction. I think I need some lessons on how to stay focused. I don’t want anyone lower than a level III instructor, though. I have unique focus issues. Once I got down to business, the day turned out to be more challenging than I’d hoped. I expected strong, clear, and thorough thesis statements, and instead found myself slogging through piles of hyper-generalized bullshit about “people” doing things “back in the day.” I had to deploy a lot of warnings about using the first-person voice and ended up taking more breaks than I’d planned because it was just rough-going at times. Disappointing conditions here. I’ll probably keep at it until the evening, but I’m definitely going to hit the kitchen for a couple of beers later. A good day overall. Better than unemployment anyway.
  16. Hey All, I'm back from another fun day at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower lot at 725am and it was partly cloudy and 10 degrees. In the house were Atomic Jeff, Toast, JFDan, Johnny Law, MBike Mike, TP4, Matt Edge, Enjorales Dad, Shadows, Indiggio, SallyCat, Tarponhead, Gary's son and many others. First civilian 6-pack and first run on challenge was pretty nice. Next run nightmare to dreamweaver was pretty good cord followed by Sidewinder which was alright. There was some sort of a pipe issue as evidenced by a large pile of dirt and digging tools at the bottom of Razors. There was also a junior race on Razors and some nasty sliding falls on upper Razors. P-Dizzle was ok..switchback was pretty smooth and lazy mile had some new blown snow. Crowds werent bad earlier but it got busier later in the morning while I was in the parking lot. Good food thanks to Atomic Jeff and MBike Mike and good entertainment and beer as well. I guess I forgot to lock my car and my sunglasses and shiros went missing..if this is prank wars then all y'all will get the last laugh..OK..all in all was pretty good let's hope the snowguns are firing again tonight..JADIP
  17. Hey All, im back from another fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower low at 7:24am and it was around -3 degrees. In the house were Atomic Jeff, JF Dan, Johnny Law, NMSki, T Maki, -Dan, Toast, Justo, Ryan, TP4, Indiggio, Enjorales and dad and many others. The six pack began a few hours late because they were still grooming. Apparently after the mountain closed down at 4pm they cranked out the guns to the max operation blizzard 3.0 type shiznit. First run I skied Challenge while most went to Razors and it was a carpet. I did challenge two more times enjoying the soft packed powder then hit up nightmare to dreamweaver which was chalky goodness. Switchback was alright but a few icy patches and lazy mile was variable some mini cookies. Sidewinder didn't look good so I avoided it but revisited challenge and revisited nightmare to dreamweaver several more times. No real liftlines all morning...Did the on bended knee T bow thing to get out of my boots and had a good variety of beer including some Bonn beer Toast brought. Was quite a stretch of cold and nice snow but looking forward to aome 20s to 40s temperatures. When I'm wearing lower body underarmor and a balaclava you know it's cold.

  19. Hey All, I'm back from the first day of skiing this year and my 20th day of the season. I skipped out on Mickey Dee's breakfast and had some crackers, pita, hummus and apple slices. Arrived at Blue mountain the true mountain at 7:24am and I had -2 but others had as low as -8 so I'm going with around -5 at the base and a few degrees warmer up high. In the house were Atomic Jeff, JFDan, Matt edge, MBike Mike, PARidge, TP4, Slim, GahSkier George, Enjorales and Enjorales dad. Razors was closed right from the start so began on challenge which was a carpet. Nightmare dreamweaver was very nice as was sidewinder. Nothing was bad except a run on challenge later on closer to 930am was a little choppy. My nose and toes were the coldest parts..was good to be out skiing completing 7 straight morning sessions beginning on the 26th..it's very rare to have the week between xmas and New Years be completely rain free. A main highlight of today was the complete lack of crowds as New Year's Day people wake up later plus the cold surely scared off many of the fence sitters. Was a short session got a quick dozen or so runs and bugged out before 10am..no beers in the lot today I had plenty Saturday and Sunday. Me and atomic jeff ended up stopping at city view diner for brunch on the way home as both the BMDI and the Whitehall diner were closed. It was pretty busy but we were served fairly fast. Now I'm posting this from work..I haven't been in since Friday morning and thought I'd take in Friday afternoon and saturdays mail and get things ready for tomorrow which will be really busy plus I think housekeeping is in my room so giving them some time to do their thing before I return and put the Do not disturb sign up..JADIP
  20. Hey All, I'm back from a fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. The temperature was in the high single digits and low teens today with a brisk northwest wind. In the house were Shadows, Atomic Jeff, Toast, Indiggio, JFBB Dan, MBIKE mike, NMSki, Nastar Glenn, Slim, Enjorales, Enjorales dad, Gah Skier George and many others. First civilian six pack again..Razors was sa weet had a nice run on it before the race team took it over. Then challenge which was $$$$, nightmare to dreamweaver was sweet as was sidewinder. With the front face skied it was off to switchback which was good and no people on the so could ski it in about three and a half turns. I tried lazy mile one along with the glades to the right which were playful and spicy 🌶. Skied some bumps as well which were scratchy. During the entire morning there there were no liftlines and I don't expect much crowd this afternoon. In the lot JFDan had his heater going and enjorales grilled up sausage, sliders and Steak and it was mad steezy yo!!! Super good. Another day of good conditions at Blue mountain the true mountain capping off a December to remember where we received 5 snowfalls and some of the best snowmaking conditions imaginable. JADIP. See everybody at opening bell tomorrow
  21. Hey All, I'm back from another fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. It was around 11 degrees when I arrived at the lower lot at 725am and not as windy as yesterday but still very cold. In the house were JfDan, PARidge, Toast, Slim, GahSkier George and many others. No indiggio today..it's always a mystery which Subaru he comes in I think he alternates. Ended up on the second civilian six pack..slackers..Challenge was a carpet for first run so nice..then hit up Razors and there was a layer of about 3" of beautiful diamond dust lighter than the tears of an unborn baby wow was it good so we hit that three times. I still haven't been on razorback yet this season. Did one run on sidewinder and it was like Toasts favorite Katie Perry song Hot and Cold..some good spots some not so good. Switchback is open i skied it once and it was good for the first day just just ok compared to the other terrain. Main Street had nice snow and so did lazy mile which was crazy mile. We took the quad up once and gosh the piles on nightmare to dreamweaver are massive and the groomers were also grooming out the massive whales in Central Park. Guns were also blowing on the two glade runs. Paradise was also good but a little crowded and I skied Paradise twice. The highlight of today was being on the res chair not once but twice..the red chair is sweet and the red color stores heat so it's a good chair to ride if you wanna warm up your buns or hands. After skiing the last four days in a row with at least three more on tap I had my Phil like Mickelson and left..did not have any beers today just drove straight to work put together a deposit and going to the bank then lunch then read what Salty is up to and take a nap..ski everybody this weekend. Hopefully AngryHugo, Johnny Law and NMSki will be out I haven't seen those guys much.
  22. Hey All, I'm back from a fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. I rocked out to Lil Pump and Huey Lewis and the News on the drive up and I arrived in the lower lot at 7:26AM and a second later Indiggio arrived followed by Atomic Jeff, Shadows, Toast, Slim, Root and a random guy who got to ride first chair with the PASRs. I was on the mantras and they loved challenge but I would have enjoyed challenge on snowblades today as it was majestic to start. Not many times I ski challenge four times in the first hour usually it's a once and done wham bam thank you mam today I didn't want to just hit it and quit it I'd rather stay and play when in came to challenge.. Main Street was good but a little dark similar snow to challenge especially on the bottom..lazy mile and paradise were alright a little slow..snow guns were cranking in Central Park, switchback, razors edge and nightmare to dreamweaver. Everything will be open in the next 48-72 hours you heard it here first. I only skied sidewinder once early..it was alright..but not as good as the others so I didn't return but I'm glad sidewinder is back in the lineup for me. I skied it sometimes when it was a terrain park and used to get mad steeZy air a decade+ ago but it's a nice run when they widen the corners it will be a winner. Shadows was on my shiros the first hour and a half or so just comparing different types of skis then he switched to atomic jeffs Kastles and Jeff was on my shiros and was pushing it to the limit on Main Street.wne midrun released from one of the skis and the ski went in a straight line for no less than 350 vert from the end of the bumps almost to where switchback cuts into Main Street. Atomic Jeff was ok I skied down retrieved my ski from a snowmakers who happened to see it all happen only some minor topsheet damage to the ski..shadows picked up the brake that was near the ejection site and Atomic Jeff skied down on one ski then back to the base on both but missing a brake on one. A screwdriver and an engineer and all was fine. Then I went in the lodge to use facility shadows returned my skis to his car sans brake on one ski and got his skis and we did a few more runs...Challenge was icy at this point around 10am then did lazy mile which was still ok and no real lip on the falls for the Toast and Indiggio to get mad steeZy air off of. Had a beer in the lot then Root came to the lot had another beer was going to go to the BMDI with shadows and Atomic Jeff but closed..stopped at work on the way home took take in the mail and now thinking about if I'm gonna need another layer tomorrow gonna be mad brick.
  23. Hey All, I'm back from another fun session at Blue mountain the true mountain. When I arrived at 7:25am it was around 29 degrees under overcast sky's and the guns were turned off due to the moist and warmish weather. In the house were JFBBDan, Matt Edge, TP4, Ryan, Enjorales, Enjorales Dad, Johnny Law, PARidge, MBike Mike, Atomic Jeff, TP4, Shadows, NMSki, Atomic Jeff, Root, Toast, Slim, GahSkier George, Pheong, Natasha, Leroy and Harry..also a couple Gary's. First civilian chair again and I began the day skiing on Matt Edge Rossi 88s which I had fun on a few seasons ago. I also skied a run on Atomic jeffs Kastles..and was back on the shiros for several runs as well to mix things up. First run on challenge was better than yesterday the cookies and snow dried out a little and wasn't quite as firm but was still lipstick on a pig as it cookied up later. Paradise was also better than yesterday good for a few runs. Lazy mile and both Main streets continued to have the best conditions and were some runs not to busy and some runs crazy. No lifelines but a decent amount of people and blue is selling a good amount of tickets and tubers out as well enjoying the mild December day..gosh in the lot it was downright warm and Enjorales served up Bratwurst, pork and beef and all very good...had some good beers and was on my way home by 1230pm..as ice cube once said..Today was a good day!!!
  24. Hey All, I'm back from a fun Saturday at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the lower lot around 728AM and JFDan was already there and also in the house were Atomic Jeff, Toast, Johnny Law, Nastar Glenn, Ryan, Justo, GSSucks, Enjorales, Enjorales dad, Ty, Indiggio, Rodney, MBike Mike, Mrs. Snowbunski and many more. Temperatures were around ten degrees to start and rose through the teens. First run was challenge..I easystyled it as it was solid..and cookes but double diamond terrain what what. Main Street was the run of the day at least early on. Was nice cord on the top half and chalky on the low half. There was a fog layer around lower terrain run which made things spicy. Paradise is open as well and will get good in a day or two but the typical first day roughness. Lazy mile has good snow and is crazy mile with the race team doing their snakes..the falls got steeper over the summer and Burma got longer I kid I kid but Burma and back was fun and then I skied a lot more Main Street runs and finished out on lazy to the falls to the men's room to the parking lot to dank beers..and tomorrow will be more of the same and conditions should even be better and will be a little warmer.
