    The NEW Magic Mountain

    Awesome weekend. Black back just in time, great soft conditions, pretty much everything open. And just enough crowds to make us happy but not frustrated. I saw black run pretty much all day on Sunday without a hiccup. The chair just seemed smoother then past years.

    Big props to management for making it all happen! Sure there are some kinks to work out. I'm sure DoWork and JamicaMan have a summer hit list a mile long. But in three months, yes they closed just three months ago, lift capacity increased 70+ percent and snowmaking increased at least 50%, with capacity to increase further. Plus lodge repairs, new bar, new rental fleet, new groomer, etc.

    I was also impressed with the bar service. It might have been hard to tell, but they were probably serving 4.0x-5.0x the biggest days from last season. There was a slight increase in wait times but no nowhere near what they would have been without the satellite bar, new keg system, and burgers on the deck.

    So fun to see it all in action last weekend!

    What's Magic going to be like tomorrow re: crowds? I'm desperate to get out and not sure where to go this week w weather and holidays. Still have a couple of Freedom Pass days left and Magic seems like the best bet.

    Any thoughts? See that Black's not running, but if crowds are light shouldn't matter.

    Im not aware of a technical issue closing the black chair. Unless someone says otherwise, Im assuming its closed because its not needed given the amount of skiers. Monday was very light compared to Saturday and Sunday and that was a holiday. Im pretty sure you will ha e a great time there tomorrow.

    Thanks for the info. I'll be there from mid morning on. I know it's going to be warm and probably slushy at times, but the weather doesn't look good for awhile so I need to get out. Any other AZers there tomorrow?

    Black runs when there is a need to run it. Weekdays it's not needed. Today was spring skiing at its best. It's February right?
