    You will no longer be able to ski from White Cloud to Wayout. The new lift will be unloading there. This is hard to imagine.. at least to me and the others that were there.

    This whole thing is still in the permit process and then there is the DEP and EPA.

    On a very sad note.... there has been no rain, Katerskill Falls is dry. The snow making pond is way down. Rumor has it they are shooting for a Dec 1 opening.
    Not being able to go from Whitecloud to Wayout? I think you are wrong, NO WAY can they have the new lift unload onto the belt!
    NEVER SUMMER!

    My guess is they will basically rename the upper portion of belt parkway and have it dump in to way-out and have white cloud only dump on to the new trails and the belt parkway. Basically the lift and unloading area might end up dividing that cross section in half.

    All this is moot since it feels like it will never get cold again.

    I can see the lift landing there. Though they could configure it so you could still get to "Lower" Belt from Upper Belt and from White Cloud to Way Out. Think of how the Valley House lift summit terminal is configured at Sugarbush.
    2017/18 =
    2016/17 = 31
    2015/16 = Depressing
    2014/15 = 28
    2013/14 = 27

    Check out the drawing on the map they submitted to the town I attached earlier. Note the parkway and wayout current locations and the proposed lift.... I do not think Russ lied to everyone........

    He said the unloading will be just like at the top of the six pack. It will make that same turn.

    exactly - and this way they will add to the trail count by re naneing existing trails without adding anything.

    Been watching the weather, want to get a Track day in this weekend. Every time I check, Sundays storm moves up a few hours. Now starting Sat Evening. By tomorrow, Saturday might be a washout. I will take the defeat if Hunter gets it's predicted 3 1/2 inches of rain though. https://www.wunderground.com/forecas...=localwx_10day
