    I am 1/2 hour closer to Plattekill so I rarely go to Elk. Plattekill gets more snow vs Elk and then there is the mentioned tree policies. For me, Plattekill is a no brainer.

    Plattekill is $669 until today, Oct 15. Tomorrow it goes up to $709. They are only open Fri/Sat/Sun and some holidays/holiday periods. It might be a toss up between these 2 areas.

    There was a recent plan for Round Top somewhere that showed extending the main lift up another 400 feet to 2900ft. There seems to be some decent north facing terrain off this sub-peak. Even if I am...

    This.
    Gondolas are exciting and less scary vs chairs for infrequent and low skill skiers.
    I avoid them unless there are no other choices.

    A crowded golf course might see 350-400 golfers/day. That many people could be sitting on 1 quad chair. Ski areas can hold thousands of people and have zero lift lines and empty trails.

    Current ownership would be doing the skiing public a favor if they sold Elk.

    The 7 starts at the Overlook Lodge. It might be overkill to put a HSQ in for a 2700ft length. ORDA will probably replace it with a FGQ and keep the midstation. This would continue to allow Blue...

    It was the intent, but the water seeps out of the pit. It probably costs too much to try and line it (if that is even possible).
