    Wow...incredible.

    Trying to get there for Saturday, but hopes are fading. Hunter or Bell might be the best I can do, and they both didn't get rope dropping amounts.

    Oh well - someday I'll get to Magic.

    Any comments on the difficulty of Green Line or Slide of Hans? Thinking of giving those a try this weekend. There’s at least one cliff on Green Line if I recall correctly? Can it be skirted? How does it compare to Black Line, last cliff on that was a bit of a challenge for me.

    Friday at Magic is tempting...very tempting...Killington with laps on Canyon is also tempting...just the fact that this is even a debate in my mind on November 27th is AWESOME!!!

    Sadly, it wont be the powder day I thought it would, but at least I'm happy to know Magic'll make extra cash Thursday & Friday.

    *wasnt sure about the woods though, but was encouraged due to trip-reports here

    They're both legit expert trails, steep and ungroomed. Yes you can skirt the green line cliff skiers left. If you're at all tentative then just go left and don't drop it, it's not huge but it's more technical than Black, and steep right away so you will accelerate in a hurry.



    Awesome that mother nature is smiling on all the hard work Magic's put in, you guys deserve this, we all do! I'll try to make it up Sunday
    he went so far off axis he was in fact on axis...the progression had become regression

    I am def more of “Wachusett Expert” than a “Magic Expert”, skill-wise...and I stay hard left at that spot and take my time.

    Both are non groomed, steep and undulating. Hans is more of a double fall line roller type run with fewer surprises. Greenline is a steep run with a cliff band at the top, but it is not a mandatory send- if you stay far left you can pick your way around it. Green has also been widened last year, so there is more to love than ever.

    K reported 8" iirc, and will have 30x the skiers. That decision would be a non-decision for me personally but I'll be the last person to tell you what to do with your time and money.

    Well played sir, well played . The woods are in rare form right now, knee deep everywhere and a great base. I would wager that there will still be plenty to go around for the weekend, doubly so if you track down Rusty Groomer and follow him like a shadow haha. Everything above the race shack on Showoff is significantly lighter and drier, especially now that we're giving some time for the moisture to leach out- consistency has been described as "more Chugach Velvet than Sierra Cement" with the runouts and extreme lower mountain glades being a little sticky still.

    Can't make thursday

    Can make fri and sat! mmmmm....Powder and prime rib.

    Sloppy seconds and thirds are some of the best days at Magic in my experience.

    Powder and prime rib is a must- the only hard decision involved on a day like that is First Drop vs. Fiddlehead vs Conehead. Decisions, decisions, man... Nobody said this would be easy!
