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

In their Instagram post, the letters R, T, M are the 15th, 24th, and 27th letters. 15+24+27=66. The number 66 has long been associated with the darkness or nighttime. Therefore, there will be night skiing this season.

First day of the year. Clawfully epic. 

Many firsts for me last night. First time skiing in a mall, first time skiing in September and first lift beer of the 20-21 season. Hopefully this is a good start to what could be a very weird season.

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.

The letters S T F U mean shut the fuck up. Therefore, shut the fuck up.

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

That's not true at all, at least not at Blue.

In the middle of busy weekdays and any weekends it's not skiing, it's a torture. Snow's shit, part of the mountain is closed for racing, the rest is overcrowded by front platers because that's the earliest when they can start reaching the slopes.

Spring days are terribly slow, sticky and wet. Only by 5pm does it get firm and fast enough for skiing to become enjoyable.

Then they groom, and the entire mountain freezes solid overnight, so early morning hours are like skiing on a grater.

If it's not spring, but early or midseason when they still blow snow, then night skiing is exquisite, esp. if it's somewhat windy. Guns are roaring, snow is blowing, floodlights amplify the effect, and it becomes like skiing in a blizzard. There are no stupid conversations on the lifts like "beautiful day today, isn't it?", folks go up like ruffled birds, looking grimly at the elements below, self-administering a couple of sips of 80-proof heat from time to time (this ain't some watery crafty pocket beer for sissy days, this is the real stuff), thoughts drowning in the sound of guns and screaming for mercy airpods.

IDK what kind of snow days other people have paid for when they were buying their snowpasses, but I definitely was looking more for some of the latter than the former.

QFT. I dislike pointless small talk with strangers on the lift. It's basically the same conversation over and over all season long.

can someone please elaborate on this

Circa early 2015 Barb Green decided to have a statue of TP4 made at blue because:

1. TP4 is the best skier on the mountain

2. TP4’s unwavering support of blue has brought them much $ over the past 19 years

3. TP4 is a PASR legend

 

the statue was built overlooking the Honey Bee Bowl.  However, when the Pope came to Philly that summer he heard about the statue and requested it be moved to the Vatican Rose Garden, to which Barb obliged.  However, as was mentioned earlier, the Pope has sent the statue back to blue to help bring positive winter vibes.  It was put back in its original location above Honey Bee Bowl, but the Pope had it moved above Coming Soon because in his words, we will need a miracle for that trail to open.

If you're looking for perfect conditions all winter, maybe you should be looking to ski somewhere other than PA.  I think two of my favorite times to ride are first thing in the morning (which for me is only weekends) and on spring conditions when the snow is soft (obviously not fast, but fun anyway).  Blue's grooming can suck, but PA winters don't do them any favors either.

I thought you like meeting new people.

Nah. Since this virus crap started I've had almost zero desire to socialize. I find I can entertain myself almost all the time.
