    I agree about Pico and North feeing similar in some ways but here are 3 key reasons that they also feel very different.

    1. Ellen is not a separate resort unlike Pico and therefore it doesnít feel...

    Iím surprised they didnít pull the plug on Otis first. I guess that Blandford costs more to operate. I understand why this happened, but itís really unfortunate. Itís not as much that Iím worried...

    Once you have driven down Snow Valley Road though, you have to hike down another rode to the old base area. There you will see the main Steeplechase slope as well as the foundation of the original...

    Thatís exactly what intrigues me about it so much. All these other places have lifts that are either partially or fully removed.

    The second picture is pretty cool. Looks like a complete lack of tension caused the bullwheel and tension carriage to slide. The only thing keeping that lift intact is that return terminal structure...

    Chair 2 is in rough shape but is extremely reliable. Itís one of only a handful Carlevaro & Savio lifts left in the country. The chairs have been replaced but everything else is original.

    Iíll almost always use the bar on detachable lifts but on many fixed grips I wonít bother. It is pretty random for me.

    Here's the thing, I definitely see your point. When we turned around to go back home we stopped at a Shaw's and a gas station. On both of those occasions, we used hand sanitizer both before and after...

    Looks like an early model Hall T-Bar based on the towers and sheaves. The drive is probably Hall but I haven't seen that type on any of their other T-Bars.

    Please explain to me how it is ďselfishĒ to go skiing?? When I was at Windham I completely avoided the lodge and close contact with people. Doesnít seem correct to be calling me selfish for that.

    No. It actually wouldnít be that way since itís not their fault and I understand why these closures are happening. We started the trip knowing this could happen.
