    Likely it's so they can just open and use White Cloud in some form again. After seeing what they'd wrought by putting in the Hunter North lift, they never opened WC last season - in fact it never looked like they even thought about it. It seemed fair to say that the "old" version of that trail, which funneled down right into the hairiest, iciest part of Belt behind the 6 pack, was never getting used again. Sad in my eyes, because I really liked White Cloud. But I don't like life-threatening injuries to others much less myself, and that seemed like a real possibility there. So at least now we'll get something out of this change.



    Edit: on second reading, I see what you mean by "people can ski White Cloud and avoid Belt" - right, and it's a pretty good option to have, especially when Belt is unmanageably crowded.

    If they do the same thing to Drop-off, you could get to the easiest trail on North (after they fix that mess). But you would have to cross the Belt still.
    NEVER SUMMER!

    Belt is the hardest trail I have ever skied. Harder than Paradise at Mad River, The upper Cirque, or Great Scott at Snowbird, or anything I found at Alta on a day with poor conditions.

    Got out the binoculars over the weekend (I can see the West/North from my house) looks like they put up a fence along the Whitecloud to Jimmy connection AND they dug out some of the Belt wall right there where the Belt, Whitecloud and the exit to the North lift met, making the Belt wider there?

    Trying to figure out changes to the map for this year, since the new trail map isn't live. Based on the trail status report, looks like Overlook and Twilight have been changed to full black instead of the blue/black. Also looks like Woodstock might be the only glade on the north side now? Greene Glades, Westkill Woods, and Balsam Bypass no longer showing on the daily report. I also thought they were cutting a new trail down the lift line this summer, but no sign of that.

    Also seeing a trail "Way In" on the report, anyone know what that is?

    I'll be out there tomorrow so I'll be interested to see the changes in person.

    Guess they figured out that blue black is a BS rating.

    They'll soon be updating their website (like Stowe did last year) and using the Vail conditions template which doesn't include blue/black or snowmaking icons.

    Sucks you can't see what trails have active snowmaking.
