    What a mess today. They have made an insane amount of snow - BUT is has been in enormous wales for days. Dangerous with the crowds.

    They have certainely embraced the frigid weather for snow making !!!!!!!! I usually enjoy the wales, fun to ski, bu these are dropoffs. Spoke to many folks and they are down 42 employees, and have noone to groom, and not enough lift operators to open all the lifts. Great that they are honest, but my gosh.

    Ironically they had an SOS race yesterday. Safety on Snow!

    I reluctantly went to Hunter on the 26th bracing for insane crowds, but I didn't wait more than 2 minutes for the flyer all day. Conditions were beautiful too - no scratchy no ice anywhere. One of the best days I've had there in awhile.

    Thinking of heading up on new years day. Any thoughts on the crowds? I am hoping the holiday crowd has thinned out. Single digit temps should help too!!

    I was there Wednesday when they opened lower K...those whales really made the entrances at the top interesting. While I wish it was always that way I agree it is dangerous with crowds of skiers.

    I've been going up NYD the last few years and crowds have been minimal due to end of Christmas week and people still there are generally nursing hangovers. Cold temps tomorrow should make for even fewer on the hill. I won't be making it up myself though.

    did you ski Annapurna yesterday?? OMG ! While I am thrilled it is open, I will not go down that again until they groom i the wales out. Yes - groomed. Cannot believe I am saying that.

    The Cliff was a mess yesterday also.

    In the old days David would get in a groomer and take care of things if they did not have the help. They need to up the $$ or something to get some workers out there!!!

    Minimum wage went u[ in NYS today, but the mtn needs to pay even more for these jobs to get the right folks to do them. I have been skiing here forever, and will, but seriously............

    I was at Belleayre yesterday.

    Hit Hunter today it was a ghost town and the mountain obviously went to skeleton staffing as a lot of the lifts were closed. No west side at all.

    Way to bail out on folks who did make the trip and wanted to ski.

    Agreed!!!! Holiday pay is expensive............. Cancelled the torchlight due to the weather so that cut down on beer sales....

    Weather was frigid, could only make 2 runs before having to go in and warm up.
