Montage 3/2

Recommended Posts

Had a pretty good day at Scranton's premier airboarding resort and waterpark...

Got there around 9:30, little later than expected.  Friend met me in Allentown and I drove from there.  He was running late, so I picked up some beer at Whole Foods.  Snow was pretty decent still when we got there, still a good bit of fresh stuff on some of the trails.  White Lightning was pretty good and still some fresh snow off of the side of Smoke.  Long Haul was running all day so did a bunch of runs off of that.  Rattler to Cannonball was also pretty good up.

Hit some of the glades off of Upper Fast Track, snow was pretty good, but a little slow, especially since that section isn't that steep.  Hopefully the storm Sunday will fill some stuff in on the bottom section of the mountain.

Today was Mountainfest or whatever with pond skimming, so we caught a bit of that.  Not that exciting, but watched a few people wipe out.  There was a local beer distributor giving out free burgers and beer at the top of the Phoebe Snow lift, which was awesome.  They had cans of Troeg's Hop Knife and some Stone IPA's and lagers.  Also brought along a few beers from Levante, and I picked up some Left Hand Raspberry Milk Stout at Whole Foods that was pretty good.  Hit Breaker Brewing on the way home, had a flight and some tacos.

Yeah, it's pretty awesome never having any crowds.  Thought about going up today, but wasn't sure how much fresh snow they'd get.  Their website said 5".  I may go back Saturday, or possibly join you fella's at Blue.

I used hit Montage a few times a year from open 'till about noon. Since they did away with their morning ticket deal it's not worth it. I do like the north face and top to bottom runs on Fast Track and Runaway. It's always a good place to go to avoid the crowds.

Yeah I used to do the morning ticket deal also, and they gave a 10% AAA discount (I think they still do).  I bought the $ 150 season pass someone posted here and definitely got my money's worth.  I agree though, I don't think I'd pay a full price ticket, especially since I usually only ride until lunch time.
