Pro tip salty: only gapers and Jerry’s park up top. There is a riders of the storm exception to this, not that you’ll need it. 

This reminded me of Salty

White lightning is badass. Glad you didn't walk down it.

How was Montage yesterday??

It was aight. Skied every open trail except White Lightning. There was a ridiculous amount of ice at the top of Smoke, so I only did that one time. Since they haven't groomed it in a while it's a pretty nice moeghoul run after the ice part. At noon met up with a friend from highschool and made 3 runs with him, then had an alcoholic cider for $6.50 + $1.00 tip. When he snowboards he does 3 runs and then drinks for a half hour, then repeats. So I ended up only doing 12 runs at Montage in 5 hours but it was cool. Got to witness some epic pond skimming for the 3rd year in a row - I've gone to every Montage Mountainfest since I started skiing.

Is everything open there? How was coverage?

Everything was open except Upper Runaway, and Upper and Lower Fasttrack. Coverage was excellent, I don't think I saw a single bare spot. Montage seems to have really improved over last year.

I think PoconoOceanCity is there today. 

It’s a great hill, have a tough decision to make for next season. There’s literally nowhere to stay that meets our standards. Driving 40 minutes works for some but not all of us.

I'm definitely no Wyoming Valley PA expert but the only mountainy feel type area semi close that I can think of is Bear Creek Township outside Wilkes-Barre and that's probably about 20 minutes away. Not sure what the rental scene there is like though (Bear Creek Village?) . Definitely no restaurants close like Lake Harmony but an easy ride into WB.

I'm a Wyoming Valley expert! What are your standards?

Mebbe. I heard a rumour that the snow there is dank. I wonder how it compares to Camelback??

Will be better at Blue. Just the kind of snow you like. Packed Perd. Leave your facemask at home it’s spring.

Maybe I'll make an ultra rare appearance in the lower lot at the opening bell
