    Cant say i've ever seen that area rope-free before.
    The rope was there to give the trees a fighting chance to entablish themselves. Now that they have a few years of growth it is treated just like any of the rest of the Forest Service land we operate on. Note: We do not maintain that area.

    I was wondering what the deal is with that area, I dipped in there for the first time last week because I saw no rope and it was a nice little spot... kinda felt like skiing through a christmas tree farm.

    That acreage along with Upper Overbrook was traded/given back to nature in the 90s when they widened Standard/Canyon when the quad went in.

    As I look out my window at 12pm, Mt snow has turned on what looks like top to bottom snowmaking. Looks like it got colder earlier than expected! Great job!

    Much better this morning!! Snowmaking trails under the almost 300 guns running are smooth and creamy. The terrain that hasn't had a resurface yet is machine groomed loose granular with some firm spots, but WAY better than yesterday

    How’s the season been so far at Snow? Haven’t been able to ski yet but that should change in a couple weeks.

    Hey Mount Snow just saw the rate hike for the Sunday afternoon ticket. Kinda bummed. Still a good deal but would have been better 10 bucks cheaper like the last couple years!

    All those snowmaking enhancements weren't free.

    You’re right. Someone has to pay back those EB-5 funny money investors.

    While the snow today was great, there was some sad news in the Mount Snow region today. Around midnight last night, a fire broke out at one of the Valley's most well known restaurants, Dot's of Dover, and as you can see from my pictures, it's a total loss. Betsy, the owner, was one of the true figureheads that helped the community come back after the devasting floods of Tropical Storm Irene in late August of 2011. I'm sure the community will band together and help her through this devasting time!!

    It's actually the 2nd major fire in the Valley this weekend, as a townhome in the Greenspring development, across route 100 from the mountain, was totalled by a fire. Fortunately everyone in the 3 families who were staying in it got out safelyAttachment 24490IMG_20190120_151849729.jpg
