    I went to Magic for the first time this season Thursday... great snow. Terrain is in great shape. Had a great time for $29.

    At the risk of being burned alive at the stake by AZ for the crimes of "un-optimistic vibes towards thy Magic Mountain"... that Green chair is not getting finished this year. Hope no one's holding their breath. It's just towers and terminal frames. No bullwheels or anything.

    Which direction does “Link” go ... I am confused ... in slatham’s comments above Link is going from Heart of Magician to Black Line. But in this thread from last season slatham indicates that Link goes in the opposite direction, from Black Line to Heart of Magician. http://forums.alpinezone.com/showthr...Magic+Mountain

    It is not clear on trail map either, the line for Link is nearly horizontal. I guess is slants very slightly from right to left (Heart of Magician to Black Line)?

    Link goes from BL to HoM. Meets a crossover trail (bail out) that goes back to BL. Bail out contination not shown on the new map. Its A lower link.

    Yes confusing, and I thought I knew the mountain! Broomstick, Black Line, take a left down Link to HOM (comes into HOM in same location as Bail Out comes in from Talisman), ski HOM down to the unnamed crossover (a continuation of Bail Out) back into Black Line.

    To make it more confusing, that last crossover actually has two parts, one allowing you to ski FROM Black Line into HOM, and one that goes from HOM into BL.

    Oh, and one more. Further up BL, just down hill from where Broomstick comes into BL, there is another, unnamed crossover going from BL into HOM. I am sure this was to allow those who strayed all the way down Broomstick and accidentally found themselves on BL a way to get back to HOM and live to ski another day.

    Needless to say, I think I need to study the mountain a bit more - I'll start next weekend!

    Yes, we've said Green is a 2018-19 project after the death of our key contractor and have mentioned that in multiple updates. We can't work on it during the winter and must contract another lift installer to work with us come spring.

    Thanks for the info ... I took the “live to ski another day” route today (run #3) ... my first time down Broomstick! Was fun zigging and zagging back and forth between the runs. Conditions were great, the sun was out, only thing missing was the bar at Sunshine Corner
