    What in the world is going on at wildcat…

    Are things as ugly as the webcam and trail count would seem to indicate? Looks like Polecat and Catapult to Bobcat is the only thing left after the most recent weather?

    VAIL SUCKS

    The woes continue at Attitash. The flying bear is broken again, of course on a powder day during the holiday week. It was already down for nearly a week just a couple of weeks ago.

    North Conway ski shop intel?

    Stan and Dan have sold the shop? Can't say that I'm surprised to hear that, I don't think I've seen either one of them in the shop this winter. Wondering about the change with new computer system instead of the old hand written receipts too.

    VAIL SUCKS

    No, neither lift ran again today. On the Yankee all the chairs are back on the rope, but the chair spacing is messed up. They never even tried to spin the lift today. Abanaki lift is open, but having some sort of overheating issue. Lots of repeated extended stops. Even the learning center...

    Yes, that’s just a power line. It extends to the cell tower near the summit. Lots of brush on that line, it’s not skiable. Here’s straight shot from today:

    VAIL SUCKS

    Just when it looks like Attitash might turn things around, they deliver another disaster. The summit triple was the only lift running this morning and still opened 20 minutes late. Yankee is closed with chairs piled up at the bottom terminal. Flying bear also closed leaving no access out of the...

    That line is still there as the trail Straight Shot. Its narrow, but not very steep. Typically open once there is enough natural snow. Only the bottom portion is now grown in were they built the mountain coaster.

    Too bad it seems like they don't have anyone to push out those whales. Looks like they make tons of snow last week on both peaks, but I don't think they opened a single new trail for the weekend.

    Attitash looks like lots of fun today. This line for three trails on the lower half of the mountain.

    VAIL SUCKS

    If the double doubles don't run this winter it essentially leaves Attitash no beginner terrain other then the learning center. Looks like the triple may be broken again. Went down yesterday morning and it's not running again today.

    VAIL SUCKS

    Yet another bad day at Attitash. The triple broke down again before the first chair made it to the top. That leaves just 2 runs off the Yankee and 1 run at Bear.

    VAIL SUCKS

    The whole lift situation at Attitash is complete mess. I feel sorry for the beginners forced to wait in the huge line for the east double-double. The learning center triple has not run since the east double-double opened for the season sometime in January. Only access to the learning center...

    VAIL SUCKS

    Apparently Vail doesn't know where Attitash, Crotched & Wildcat are. They are listed in the midwest on the buddy ticket page:

    I can understand why Attitash is waiting to push out the whales with the forecast, but it they better pull it together quickly when the weather recovers. I agree..."Vail, u suck!"

    Any Bean Counters here?

    . Holy s**t! That's one ticket walk-up rate?

    Does anyone know what's up with the Attitash summit triple? Is that hunk of junk broken again? From the Attitash Facebook page yesterday: "In preparation for the upcoming holiday week, we will be performing maintenance on the Attitash Triple"

    Attitash Summit Triple Problems 2018-2019

    Anybody know what's up with the Attitash summit triple? Is this hunk of junk broken again? There was an extended stoppage of an hour or so this morning. When they got it running again they were only loading 5 out of every 6 chairs for a while before closing the lift. That leaves only 4 trails...

    Attitash Summit Triple Problems 2018-2019

    Another weekend coming without the Summit Triple. They are in the process removing the bullwheel. I think this will be the 6th weekend without the lift already this season. Looks like they already have plenty of excuses why the lift won't be replaced. From John Lowell in the Conway Daily...

    Attitash Summit Triple Problems 2018-2019

    Summit triple problems continue. The lift was down again all weekend with no time frame for its repair. Resulting lift queues at Bear Peak on Saturday were the longest I've even seen. There was even a substantial wait at the Abenaki Quad. Blog from Attitash...

    Attitash Summit Triple Problems 2018-2019

    The lift has only been partially removed. The base station, rope, and chairs are gone. The towers with sheaves and top station are still in place. I guess that still counts as a lift.
