    K-1 operates way more hours a year (much longer ski season operations, summer operations, etc). Mechanically, those cabins have a lot more abuse on them.

    Good reply from the mountain. While it would have been better to get something like that out there sooner, I'm glad to see it now.

    I don't think anyone reasonable is blaming the rank and file employees for issues. They do the best they can with the resources and direction they're given, same as anywhere.

    Yeah it was, I was just so drenched by the early afternoon that I had to call it quits. Wish I'd brought my hiking rain gear instead of ski gear.



    I'd never thought about that before, but...

    Their major drawback for attracting people is very little good intermediate terrain. The lower mountain runs are fine, but too short to satisfy people and Belt Parkway is both a mess on a busy day...

    They do have a trail report listing what they're making snow on.

    Looks like they're trying to cover a bunch of long runs to get the Burnt Ridge Quad, North Quad and High Peaks Double open. Takes a...

    This weather has been the worst in about 25 seasons too, and this week's weather isn't great either.

    I think they've chosen to try to open up terrain up high where it's less likely to melt out....

    If that's correct, I'd expect a lot of suspicion about skimping on maintenance/repairs. It'd have had what, a handful of weeks remaining in it's life? Pretty good incentive for someone to say "it'll...
