    Or line it with Super Polecats up and down. That would work!

    Either do that or let westway grow in and put the current snowguns elsewhere. It’s absurd to have such a large trail bare all winter long. In fact, it almost seems west side is forgotten. Maybe with north being a failure (in terms of adding intermediate terrain) they can label that whole side hunter west and add a lodge with access to both areas.

    ...and figured out they need some natural snow to have glades.

    You’d really think they should have realized that before they put them in (and made such a big deal about them with all the videos during construction about then). It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to know how much natural snow hunter averages.

    Pretty amazing (or perhaps sad) that so many people here on this forum called it right about how poorly planned the project was when they announced it yet peak’s own PMs and staff couldn’t see that the terrain wasn’t right for their stated goal of increasing intermediate trails.

    What's the challenge to opening West Way for skiing the whole season ... at least the lower 2/3rds like on my wish list? Water supply, air, power or cost?

    I get there's a lot of acreage to cover but sucks to see it bare on every ride up the lift while lapping Claire's or Anna if open.

    Its pretty steep so everything falls down it..plus its too wide..since they moved the lift over there they shoukd eliminate that area by the lift as its too rocky any way..ive seen people fall there and get cut up. Narrow it down and blow it..
    Lets go!
