I think you're reading into it too much 🤷🏻‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️

First day of the year. Clawfully epic. 

Skied Hunter today with @GSSucks. Since I’m #Epic this year, figured I might as well use the pass on the East Coast as well.  5:25am departure and smooth sailing and arrived at Hunter 2h40m later.  Go

Got some skiing in last night with @GSSucks.  Parking lot smelled like weed and beer when we pulled in, and piss when we left.  It's no different than Blue's lot.

If you look at the sun angle on the cord it looks like there is an obstruction caused by some machinery near the TP4 statue. I don't want to read into it too much, but it looks like they are removing the statue from its current location to place it at the top of the newly named TP4 trail that has been in the works for the last decade. Not trying to stir the pot, but I think that is the hidden message.

Losers. That's like forcing all night clubs to open at 6am 'cause you know, it's the best time to drink and party.

can't drink all day if you don't start first thing in the morning

Correct.  The Pope was saddened by our mild winters and sent the statue back to Blue in hopes of colder/snowier winters.  It was initially placed at its original location above Honey Bee Bowl, however the Pope has been pretty upset by the lack of progress on Coming Soon and thus asked Barb to have it moved above Coming Soon

Wow. Truth comes out. Great news!

Actually I wasn't. was tongue in cheek...more so was waiting to see how long it would take for this...
 

I don't think it was. Their Facebook post said, "Many of you prefer visiting the mountain in the morning...".

According to Merriam-Webster dictionary, many (\ ˈme-nē  \) is defined as "consisting of or amounting to a large but indefinite number".

Say 100,000 people ski at Blue Mountain, and 60% prefer to visit the mountain in the morning. That equates to 60,000 people, or are large number of people; "many".

At the same time, 40,000 people prefer to ski at night. That's also "many".

Therefore, it's also correct to state, "Many of you prefer visiting the mountain in the evening...".

no one who can ski during the day prefers to ski at night. let's all just stop kidding ourselves

But many people like myself and @eaf can't ski during the day during the week. So it's either night skiing or nothing at all. Plus, I've always had an insane amount of fun skiing the last hour before close when the trails and lift lines are completely empty.

Just because you determine both scenarios to be "many" doesn't mean that they were wrong with their statement. Skiing at night sucks anyway.

This scenario is called majority/minority. Your definition of many would not not apply here as it’s not an indefinite number, it’s either 60k or 40k.

Blue said many people enjoy morning skiing. I dont see any hidden message there because many people enjoy night skiing also

I think the hidden message is less night skiing = less RTMs on the hill = more win.
