I think they’ll be good to go for Root Friday in 35 days. 

Not to be the Debbie Downer, but i still see a ton of work to be done.  Its one thing to just hang all the pieces up, but another to actually make them all work together.

Agreed. All the steel in the pics are basically giant lego pieces. They could have them together in no time... its everything else thats going to take time.

Was thinking about that today. The other new 6-pack in the Poconos has been up for months, and they are still working on it daily.

 

Still excited to see more than dirt on the webcam tho

So, so smooth . . .

 

May be an image of outdoors

Is that magic carpet going to load like 5 feet from tower 2 or is it just an optical illusion?  Seems like kind of a hazard.

I need to road trip up to old forge.  If Ed white is there maybe he’ll give me a tour of the White House.  Dave Portnoy gave all the old forge pizzas like a 6.8. I wonder what he’d give Allentown pizza places.

On topic, Blue can host weddings and events a little later into the fall out of the summit lodge and skiers and tubers park and ski at the bottom where all the infrastructure is.  Remember before how early season we could only park in the top..bottom for ski shop only…well maybe it will end up being the reverse early season..bottom only for parking at least.

The heli flying tomorrow is probably questionable given the predicted low ceilings. 

Lot of fog out there, but also activity around the towers staged in the learning area, so maybe they are going. @Benmneeds to keep us updated on the radio chatter so I know whether to keep checking in. 😉

That's some *old* Arecos replaced. I believe that #1 in the picture and #2 at the Falls/Home Stretch/ Paradise/Razors merge have both been retired. The TT10 is a lot more gun than the Areco, also - it should be able to flow ~150 GPM or more, where the Areco could move maybe 80.

 

Though the TT10 can also put a lot more snow on the Challenge gates...
