    I’m at blue now, it’s very thin and mostly ice. They would have to move a lot of snow around to make it another weekend.

    what site is this on, I’m very interested in seeing what it says?

    I was at Blue on Tuesday and conditions were good through most of the day. The place was pretty empty and Im sure most of those there were season pass holders. Hard to make money under those circumstances. Vail rumors have been floating around on Paskiandride for some time.

    There is a Blue forum on PASkiandride: https://www.paskiandride.com/forums/

    Mostly just people making snide comments in the threads on the days Blue closes due to a slight chance of rain.

    I just checked out that forum and couldn’t find a thread about blue being up for sale or being sold. I did see a few posts in some threads that hinted about it and some about money issues but not much.
    I’ve heard this rumor going around at the mountain much of the year and I wished I could find more about it.
    Some people say Vail is buying it but I find that hard to believe. Peaks would be my best guess and would be awesome to have it on the Peaks Pass.

    No there has been nothing anywhere near official... just internet chatter. Id be interested in seeing it join a multi mountain pass that would give us PA and NJ skiers some other options up north. Peak is the only option right now but I dont have any interest in JF.

    I agree. I had the Peaks pass two years ago and got tired of Frost and Boulder very quickly, they are both only about 15 minutes from home, blue is about 30 minutes.. We did a bunch of trips to Hunter and mount snow but doing that gets costly with lodging, fuel ect. Plus we do a week out west once a year, so a pass that covers that would be awesome.

    Would be nice if Vail came in and replaced those side-by-side doubles with a quad.

    Closed for season. And I wanted to get a few laps in this afternoon after a morning softball game- good thing I checked their site. Oh well.

    Sure there were some very good parts, but there were places where it was almost edge to edge with dirty ice. Lazy mile was horrible on left for most of the run.
    so yeah you could pick your way around but bring your rock skis.
    as much as a hate Camelback. I may go there next weekend to ski free and get tacos at the shack.
