    best advice he could have given you was to stop spectating at k and drive an hour south to participate in an 80% open terrain fully ungroomed opening day.

    the conditions at magic yesterday would have kicked the crap out of most eastern resort skiers. thick quad burning powder. unexposed rocks stumps and obstacles. huge mandatory water bars. lesser ski areas would not let the public ski this stuff (save for MRG and maybe sugarbush). magic is special.

    Lol! Probably most of us would rather make a better first impression, than what some of the antics on here have been over the years!

    White saturday was a special day that ill remember for a long time. Toured my son around all day. We had a blast until our legs gave out around 2. Stoke level was high. Last run was fresh lines through a on map tree run.

    Add Gore to that list as well, at least so far this season. Stuff they had open on natural had all of the above mentioned for Magic Saturday.

    Email from Geoff:

    Bruce Almighty!

    We never imagined this storm would be quite this huge. But, winter storm "Bruce" delivered a mighty wallop last night into today. 14" heavy snow at the base with 19" of fresh powder up top! And, some more light snow in the forecast for Wednesday.

    With all the new snow we are adapting our operating plans to open even earlier than Saturday as we want to give folks as much opportunity to enjoy Ullr's bounty as possible. As we were without power, internet and phone all day today, there was no way to be feasibly open tomorrow (Wednesday), so the Red Chair will spin at 9am for a Thursday 19 inch full-on Powder Day and then Magic stays open for Friday and into the "opening" weekend--there's just so much snow, and with our prior base, the entire mountain will be OPEN including all the woods! (In NOVEMBER!)

    Take a look at the picture taken late today (below)--how often do you not see any rock showing on the steep ledges and cliff faces of Black Line and Black Magic?!

    The extra day without ski traffic should also get some of the moisture out of the heavy snow. We will have our regular $74 adult ticket pricing for the Powder Day and Friday-Sunday with all our ski trails and glades open.

    100% by Christmas is noteworthy. 100% now is unheard of. This is amazing.
