    This is where the green chair really shines. You can mix in a west side lap and then ski to the green chair to head down Showoff and see your son race, without going all the way back to the top.

    From the parent perspective, especially since most of the time that Showoff is the race hill is for the younger kids (U10's and U12's) the Green is a godsend as you don't have to try and "reason" with your kid about NOT riding up the Red in their race suits to get their coats/pants rather than wait for the coaches to being the coat bag down after the run is complete! And at least the the last 6 years that my kids have been racing at Magic, the majority of their race days have been cold, blustery days, where riding the Red in a race suit is far from a warm thing!

    Depends entirely on the trail. Many of the bump runs at sugarbush I wouldn’t want half and half either as it would ruin the experience.

    Some wider trails I think half and half is ok though. Just needs to be the right trail to support it properly.

    The trail I posted above from Attitash is like 150 feet wide. It made sense. The other bump runs there were all wall to wall and I wouldn't have wanted to see a half and half. Probably the only trails that half and half would make sense at Sugarbush are Ripcord and Upper FIS. Maybe Cliffs too for something lower angle.

    Like you said, I’d understand if they did it due to thaw freeze. Otherwise if this is the new GM’s decision I don’t like it. The moguls at Belleayre on many of the trails you’re mentioning were some of my favorites and one of the things I really liked about Belle.

    It was the thaw/freeze. I went today and there are "moguls" signs in all the usual places. No more grooming.

    Tongora had some really nasty ice bumps on it and needed a grooming.

    Today was great. Definitely a “firm” base but still a ton of fun. Found a new favorite glade in the hallows, a little scratchy but tons of snow in there.

    Hallows are a pick! Glad you enjoyed.

    Maybe heading there tomorrow depending on how the winds shake out. If there are a few inches of wet snow, that should help soften the base!

    It was very warm today so hopefully there’s not a refreeze

    Saw bits and pieces and rode up on the red with a guy who had just done it
