    The guns are back up again today. Looks windy. I think most of the snow is landing on Mt. Snow. They could open this weekend if they wanted to.

    Impressive amount of snow is being made right now Looks like many trails on the main face are lit up with guns. Quite a sight on their mid mountain cam.

    Wow, that is impressive.

    Very impressive. I kind of wish they would open this weekend, but I'm sure that if we wait a week they will have an impressive portfolio of trails open for opening weekend.

    Anyone want to bet that Stratton will be even more mobbed this season thanks to the Ikon Pass?

    I might take that bet. They killed the college and under 30 pass and that might end up making it a wash. Either way, any regular Saturday there was already pandemonium basically. And if the wind kicks up and halts the gondola, it turns from just ordinary chaos to cats and dogs living together. New snow bowl lift might help that a bit.

    Currently at the summit it's -1F! Mid cam has some great night live action of the growing whale compliments of the SMI Polecats.

    I really don't have a problem with Stratton with midweek. Trees can be off-the-charts good when there's snow. There's nothing extreme that's a clear-cut trail but there are some tricky spots in the woods.

    But weekends...it's really the only major mountain I've skied where there is NOWHERE to hide from the masses either on-trail or on-lift(lines).

    Still going strong! Wow! They must have some serious capacity in that system. And odd they're fairly quiet about it.

    For us, you have to know how to work the mountain. We typically ski on Sundays. We get to the mountain late morning, get out for a few runs, then people start going in for an early lunch; we keep skiing. By the time lunch is over, some people head home. We generally avoid Saturdays there if possible.

    Not complaining about the upcoming snow and cold temps, but I wonder if this is slowing down the lift install?
