    CBK Pa. our local mountain, is about the same size as Crotched. We've been debating the same subject for years, and to their credit they seemed to have listened. The fact is with these smaller areas, a good mogul trail, makes the mountain ski a little bit larger and of course areas like these are all about practice practice, practice. Snowmaking and expansion are always their no. 1 concern but once its all down, they get it.

    Very happy with the conditions at Crotched today. Light traffic meant that most runs didn't get scraped bits until after lunch. Jupiter's was firm in spots (my skis could use a shop tune) but most trails were groomed out very nicely. I did venture down Solstice trail but it was a bit sketchy in spots. All considered with the recent weather I'm surprised it was even skiable.

    With the current forecast will Pluto's be open for the holiday week?

    Was there today. I expected more coverage. A lot of areas were surprisingly thin including a few ugly rocks on Moon Walk. They need water badly.

    Magnitude was my pick of the day. Meteor could have used better grooming. Snow was good but you can tell they had a slalom course on it recently and didn't do a good job leveling it out. Weather was great though.

    I did! He let me choose #46. The same as my Wildcat mug number.

    Sounds like a lot of AZers were here today. I met ski-it.

    After the interchange about moguls on this thread, I ran into the GM who had already seen your comments on moguls and assured me (and by extension, you) that moguls will be on the way. The only question is: on how many trails? Naturally, weather or a snow drought could derail those plans.

    I thought that the AM was wonderful and the trails well groomed, but it did get fast in the afternoon. At that time, I did switch skis to a freshly sharpened pair and it was nice to be able to grip the surface rather than side slip it.

    As to Pluto's: The pond is coming back slowly. I don't know if there is enough water to do Pluto's. With the dry summer, the ground water isn't replenishing the pond as fast as in past years.

    Crotched Mtn. 2016-17

    When I was there on Wednesday the tune shop was closed but a rental guy said it was open Thursday. Did it just open for the season or is it only open certain days?

    It's usually open daily - but this is still early season. That being said, if this was night skiing, I don't recall there being anyone on duty to do tuning in the evening.

    Would be curious to know this as well as I plan to get my skis tuned before race league starts. I got my skis tuned from CM once before and was quite happy with the results.
