    Lodge flooded but Independence Celebration is a go for Saturday July 7th
    You just never know what surprises are in store when you own a business. Well, this one occured overnight for a 12 hour period from Sunday night after closing the Black Line Tavern into Monday morning.​
    We're calling it: "The Soda Fountain Flood".​
    It started when the water inlet to the carbonator failed (soda gun). Pretty small device. But when it failed, water was released at 50 pounds of pressure from about 9pm until the office opened up on Monday. Truly amazing to see how much water came out and how much damage was done. Not just up at the Black Line Tavern, but down below it into the cafeteria and kitchen area, and even down to the main entry level door. A river runs through it, I guess.​
    Needless to say, the Black Line Tavern will not be serving food for a couple/few weeks as damage is assessed, mitigated and then repaired. We will be able to serve cold beer and wine on the deck depending on weather for cocktail hours (5-8p) Thursday and Friday in a relaxed atmosphere outside, with access to facilities.​
    And, importantly, everything is still a go for our biggest little Independence Day celebration on July 7th. The Hound Dogs truck will be in to do food service (as well as the fried dough folks) and we will be serving up cold drinks, beers and wine starting at 5pm with music playing until our live band Goofyfoot takes the stage on the deck at 7:30 and plays until 11:30! The fireworks show put on by the town of Londonderry then lights up the sky at around 9:15. So come early. Eat, drink, play disc golf and cornhole, listen to great music outside, and enjoy a wonderful community atmosphere on what is forecasted to be a glorious day and night on the mountain. (Get here early to stake out your blankets/chairs on the lawn to listen/dance to Goofyfoot and then watch the fireworks.)
    The "Soda Fountain Flood" of 2018 is just another obstacle to be overcome here at Magic, and we have a fantastic team of employees and vendors already getting after it to get the lodge back in shape as soon as possible. In the meantime, thank you for your patience. Magic is still open for disc golf daily (golf season passes are here) and deck drinks Thursday-Saturdays until we open back up the BLT kitchen, dining and full bar experience in a few weeks.​
    Happy 4th of July to all and come celebrate America's Independence (always a day with special meaning here) on Saturday July 7th!​​
    Overcome and Think Fun!​

    Magic was on the Mad fisherman on NESN the other night. I tried to dvr it but it was on later than it was supposed to be and I recorded something else instead.

    Being on top of a mountain it’s a great location, so probably a lot.

    If I recall I saw a property map of what Magic owned and there was a box carved out in that area so the cell owners may own the property. Now whether Magic gets a fee for the use of the work road for access is a good question.

    Other mountain have done the same thing - tower owner purchased the land (because the mountain needed quick cash) and now the mountain does not receive lease payments that would have far exceeded the sale cost.

    I can't imagine selling a 40 square foot plot of land when everyone else leases it.

    Look at urban areas, most of the cell transmitters are on top of existing buildings, this is merely a lease. Even most cases when you see a cell tower on farm land, it's a lease.

    Not really familiar with rural / mountain arrangements but it would be a shame if they got short changed.

    Wish. The priors owners of course needed quick cash and sold it off. So Ski Magic gets zero dollars and lousy land owners at the top of the mtn doing harm to our mtn often going off their horribly built work road (boulders) onto grass trails. And, they don’t maintain or improve the road...



    Major sore point and prior owners came away with about the same amount of cash selling it as they would in 1-2 years of leasing. Smh
