    It reminds me of an old caricature (couldn't find it) of a long lineup, so long that it started at the top of the ski run. High Noon isn't very long. The first few days of Colorado October skiing is often a zoo.

    I forgot to mention, that Timberline opened the Pucci lift today only, unfortunately Magic and Palmer are closed (whiteout conditions). They got 24" in the last 48 hours.

    MT. Rose is planning to open on October 27. Can't wait for the East to open something.

    Why anyone would have any desire to do this, I have no idea.

    And it's like this every year presumably, because last year someone posted the same picture and it looked even worse.

    Actually saw a nice timeline someone put together on PugSki showing how the line has gotten WAY worse starting in 2007. Could easily have just been when the pics were taken, but 10 increasingly horrific line pictures in a row really piqued my interest.

    Really? Many do it in the east too at Killington and SR every year. And neither in the east is a HSQ.

    You gotta think that opening day alone makes a big dent in how much it costs to run early season with snowmaking.
