    I think they are just the opposite.. The rollers allow me to gather up some momentum to get to the lift easier... Kind of perfect actually..

I barely ride anywhere except the North and West sides now.. It's like a new area for me. Hell yeah!!!!
    Yes. If the trees would just get in play, I'd happily never leave that side.

    Damn I love riding the new terrain at lunch...
    I can change - drive to the parking lot - get 4 or 5 runs in - be back in an hour to work..
    It's a game changer for me. Closer to 1.5 hours to get some runs in from the front face parking lot..
    Today there were 3 cars there.. so good...

    Anyone know why the west side and the Zepher have been closed for 2 days with no end in site?

    The mtn states this in their daily update for a couple of days now.

    Please Note: Hunter West, with the exception of Way Out, and the Zephyr Express will be closed again today and at least through tomorrow.
    We thank you for your patience during this time and we will make clear to our guests when Hunter West’s terrain and lift has been reopened.

    Hopefully there is a good reason (Claire's was not great Monday so maybe conditions?) And not a harbinger of things to come next year. With the new expansion the west side was further neglected this year and with the west to North runout trail not running the zephyr midweek is a real possibility

    From today's email... must be conditions related, or at least they want us to think that.

    Reading between the lines.... There's a bunch of snow and bumps on Hunter West. It's bulletproof right now and not safe for mere mortals. It's supposed to warm up tomorrow and beyond. We'd rather keep the bumps as opposed to knock them down and create a bunch of flat, frozen granular for a few folks today....
