    Middlebury Snow Bowl

    Does anyone know if they run the Bailey Falls lift only on the wknds? I'd like to get there tomorrow but only if both lifts are running.
    They are only reporting 6" of new snow which doesn;t seem right given what other neighboring mtns have rcvd.
    A direct message to them on FB yielded nothing.

    I have only been there 3 times and twice of those during the week and Bailey Falls was not running during the week but that doesn't mean it doesn't.

    I would call them.

    I agree on calling them. In the past it was hit or miss, mainly because of the conditions. They have limited snowmaking back there.

    There is no snowmaking on the terrain served by that chair.

    My recollection, and understanding, is that they have a line that covers the very upper part of the liftline and Youngman. It might have been since removed. I thought that was indicated on the map from circa 2000 or so. But most of that area is natural.

    Well I called but "the manager" was not around so the guy didnt know. He said to call back in the AM
    Hopefully I call in the AM and they tell me it's opening for the season...fresh un tracked over there would be pretty awesome.
    If they arent spinning it I'll have to decide if a longer drive just for Worth/Sheehan are better choices than Pico or Magic (both also w/o 100% open terrain)

    Latest snow report on their site says it is not open.

    Correct but I think that lift only runs in wknds. I'm hoping for that anyway. They should have enough base to open it as all natural terrain I'd think at this point

    Hope they do as well. The College is back in session, so I would imagine that they want to have everything open. It is a cool place to ski.

    Yes it goes down Youngman about half a mile, left over from the expansion back there that was never completed due to some type of local abbuter opposition. It's not connected or used.
