11/30....best conditions of the season..PASR day

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

 

Im back from another fun day at Blue mountain the true mountain. I arrived at the  upper lot at dark oh thirty aka 715am and BenB, JFDan, Atomic Jeff, Indiggio, NMSki, Ryan, Mute, Mixilplix, Tarpenhead, MBike mike, Mrs. SnowBunski, Johnny Law, Enjorales, Enjorales dad, Gary, Slim, Rudolph the red nosed reindeer were all in the house. The temperature was in the upper 20s under partly sunny sky’s.  

 

Rope drop yielded the best conditions of the season.  Vista to midway to lower Main Street was like a western groomer. Maybe western Pennsylvania..come around had very nice stiff cord and with the 8am opening the first few runs had some piece and quiet.  Yeah it was like Groundhog Day for blues fifth day of operation this season but anything before the Fourth of July is bonus so gotta enjoy the one and a half runs open while the snowmaking cannons continued to roar on upper Main Street, lazy mile and in the valley.  

 

No lifines during the hour and a half I skied and some decent crowds started showing up late morning when I was enjoying a beer and potato chip buffet in the lot...been a great start to the season the the forecast looks interesting...thanks Blue you’re my boy!!!’

I haven’t been paying attention to forecasts since 7am but I’ve seen more ominous storms fizzle out and I wake up at 6am and there’s no precipitation on the radar from here to Harrisburg.  I will be monitoring the situation now back to Linda in the studio with the situation from the Lehigh valley mall...Worldstar

TFTI. I skied vicariously today through your exemplary written Report. In my mind I skied that western groomer (aka Midway) and indulged in that potato chip buffet, and didn't even have to wake up early or haul my RTMs to the Sonic.

Nah. I plan to hopefully start skiing regularly next week once the conditions improve and more trails open.

That first two or three empty hammer down runs down Midway / Main Street were worth getting out of bed for.  First chance to really let the boys run this season.

Midway sugar and Matt edges on both Midway and Main Street provides ample entertainment after beer:30 for @tarponhead & I.  Stayed until a bit after one, all guns were off and grooming commenced on Tut’s.  Looked like they were working on a fan gun at the top of MS too.

That's a ton of snow to blow on tuts when the valley looks like it does. Gotta keep trying I guess.

No inversions lately, so they were able to blow up top more than in the valley.
Low temps look good this week, but humidity levels look pretty high, unfortunately.

Closing at 4pm that’s the official word. 

Ya I rode last night.  I would have considered another night session tonight but no big deal
