    Thanks for the update Joshua. I'll be around Crotched in the morning for a short session before departing for family holiday commitments in the afternoon. Hopefully I run into you

    And lurking Crotched GM. I hope you're reading this. I love this news. I'll also say that us bump fans aren't greedy; especially with a smaller mountain. While multiple trails would be great, really just one season long dedicated bump trail that's well taken care of is all we're asking for. We want to show up at the mountain and know there's going to be bumps to ski. Just like those who like terrain parks want to know there's going to be a park to ski/ride pretty much all season long. Or those who want groomed slopes who want 90% of the hill groomed to perfection every morning. Half of UFO/Equinox all the way down to Shooting Star with well maintained bumps from Xmas week through the end of the season would be so well appreciated by your advanced skiers on the mountain. thanks

    I 2nd that, with another small request. I realize that the fan guns don't quite reach across Pluto's to cover under the rocket. But a little groomer pushing snow to provide coverage would be really helpful when it is allowed to bump up. There are a couple of really sharp rocks that have taken a toll on my skis. That being said, lets hope for lots of natural so my request is moot!! Better yet, I want enough now to open the woods, then I won't give a crap about the groomers!

    I dropped mine at the rental desk to get tuned on thursday, said there was no one available but they could get them done overnight. Picked them up first Friday morning, cost was $30. I usually get them done at golf/ski in greenland, will say that golf/ski does a better job but they quoted a seven day turnaround when I called this week, not an option mid season.

    I thought today was good, did not venture into the woods, Jupiter's was in much better shape than thursday. Brought my 70 year old dad, he was so impressed said he was going to buy a pass next year, don't think he has ever had one.

    Good news on the bumps, even better to know that management is listening to their customers. Spent some time thinking about this today and despite my comments yesterday think ufo may be a better choice than Jupiter's for a bump run.

    The true happiness of a man can be found in the mastery of his passions.

    I always enjoy meeting fellow AZers and I'm at CM 95% of the days they are open. That being said, I have an 11AM appointment in Boston, so I will try to rip 3 to 5 runs in the 40 minutes I have this AM and hope to meet you another day.

    Re: Bumps
    I must say, I am thrilled at the quantity of AZers calling for bumps. It's good that management knows that paying guests want them and not just a handful of (non-paying) instructors.

    Yes! All i need is half of a well maintained trail!

    That is very exciting news though.

    The base depths are really thin. Rocks, gravel, and dirt showing all over the place. They blew a bit overnight on Plutos. I would rather have seen them reinforcing the thin areas which are pervasive.

    Curious about crowds today. I came close to going, but my hangover won the day.

    Oh yeah, if anyone is a Mexican food fan, La Cabana in New Boston (not far from Crotched) does not suck at all.

    You are the second Crotched person this week to speak highly of that place. Crowds were typical of a weekend. Minimal line and only after the lift stops for a minute.
