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.

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?

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

Won’t be rare next season when you only have a season pass at Blue.
