    Sure!
    Can we extend the Spring Season Pass Pricing for those of us who were asleep at the wheel earlier this off-season (now up $100)?
    Can I be 29 for a day to get the Drifter Pass instead?

    I'm sure we all know the answers, but you asked for it!

    I bet it is a crap-load of work to cut glade lines. I wonder how much effort would be required to widen some of those woods over on the North Face... guessing a lot.

    Is that how most mountains do it? Have their season pass-holders or a community type work day? Or do actual mountain employees do the work?

    Any chance you could persuade your colleagues at Crotched and Wildcat to open similar lines of communication?

    I couldn't see plunge as being more than 200 feet of vertical... Id say a couple decent lines could get done by a couple willing/abled bodies in one weekend.

    I do remember a couple of years back when the mountain was waiting for EB-5 they had a whole stagnant workforce that was used to clear some trees throughout the mountain and it made a world of difference

    Are there any other major capital projects going on this summer besides the new carinthia lodge? Any trails getting snowmaking added?

    Or more lift capacity out of Carinthia with the New Lodge. And hopefully a high speed in Sunbrook Soon.....

    Being up at the mountain the last few days, from the perspective of my eyes (and telescope from my deck - going to take the Bluebird up to the Bullwheel Wednesday afternoon to get a closer look higher up) all of the major work is by far and away over at the Carinthia base area!! The new lodge looks MASSIVE as you drive up the entry road, and the old lodge is now just a pile of rubble (guess the one time plan mentioned to allow the local fire departments to burn it down in a training exercise vs just demo it with heavy construction equipment never materialized)

    A bunch of the lodge rubble has been move over to the main face below Yardsale. I'm guessing it's to flatten out the that pitch and hopefully spread people out a bit.

    My local hill has volunteer work days in the fall to brush cut and clear deadfall from the glades.

    They are not as well attended as we would hope, everyone just wants to cut new trails and are disappointed when they find out it's a lot of work to maintain all the glades we have and we won't cut new ones unless we have cleaned the existing ones (which never really happens, we run out of time before we run out of work)
