That’s the supports for the terminal outlined in the box.
 

I think the roll of cable sitting on valley school east just above the construction area near the tower.   They dropped that there a few weeks ago.  It was something heavy.  I recall them unloading it with a crane.

Are you familiar with the horseshoe?

Yes - it's the section of trail from about where Valley Patrol used to be all the way over to the Tubing gate, including the liftlines for Challenge and Comet, which used to mostly be covered by a pair of older Areco guns and a Super Polecat over at the base of Frontier Alley. The two valley Arecos (~80 GPM maximum) got swapped for bigger TT10 fans (potentially 180+ GPM).

Are you still a snowmaker at Blue?

I know snowmakers at Blue and I've seen their system run, but I'm not employed there. I think you have me confused with someone else.

Not sure about candysomething.

Snowmaking temps on the 13th. They've fired up earlier than that before. I wonder if they'll get the haul rope up by then?

And I don't think Camelback is quite done with the Nile Mile automation/HKD upgrade yet. Kind of six to one, half dozen the other.

@AtomicSkiergetting good talk

I so wish I could be the snow report guy back when they were a thing.  I had all the 1-800 numbers memorized. Blue was 1-800-235-2226 and Hunter was 1-800-For-Snow and Montage was 1-800-Got-Snow.  If I was Blues snow report guy it would be like this.

That was a grate phone report but you got the trail count wrong, there are 59 trails. If you say this in an interview I'm sure you'll get the gig. Your only responsibility will be to update the phone recording every day and your salary will be at least three fitty.

I’ll do it for free pierogies and if I’m ever on a diet you or shadows can have one actually I’ll end up buying more pierogies cause I can’t leave pops and enjorales high and dry
