    Ha, so funny and so right. I am definitely an offender, but I do try to pay for my harassment!

    But the immediate question as it relates to lifts is when does the old Black Lift spin?

    Ah maybe that’s how they get to “up to a foot”. It includes drifts! Technically not false advertising, but to us skiers it’s bogus. Well, unless it actually snows 12” which for all we know it...

    Ha by Monday all of Hunter will have 6-12" of fresh new man made snow and will ski fine. If it were to open today I'd agree with your point.
