    Platty didn't lose power during a similar massive storm earlier this month. They must be on a different circuit or whatever. I don't know anything about how power transmission works.

    I mean installing the lift and grading new trails. That would be pretty invasive.

    Part of the allure is that you're hiking to it. You're too gnarly for the lifts. You earn your turns, unlike all...

    Who even cares if they can't access the top of the ridge? It's like an extra, what 300-400 ft of vert? It's like Stowe not having access to the top of Mt Mansfield. It doesn't make the terrain any...

    Screw the typical family apres ski "attractions".

    Do it like Magic did: focus on the skiing. The diehards will come and get the word out.

    Blue should come out alright from this.

    Concur. Usually low crowds at JF, especially on a weekday during a storm. Thursday opening should be real nice. With whats already on the ground trees ought to be riding great.

    Plattekill - 3/16/18 - St Platty's Day

    Just got back from St Platty's. This place is absolutely ridiculous right now. The pow is thigh deep in some places. After two massive storms Plattekill has been getting 6-12 inch "refreshers" every...
