    Wildcat? Bretton Woods? Loon? Okemo? Unreal that we're getting 48+ hours of prime snowmaking (and many more next week), plus what looks like a decent storm on Tuesday and all that's going to be open for it in New England is f*cking Rime and Reason because we all know Killington isn't going to bother with Great Northern until Superstar is 10 feet deep.

    The 63 people that want to ski in the northeast this weekend don’t add much moneyz. Killy will have some options open. Rest will open with some good terrain for first weekend. Better to open a good product then rush some shit for no money

    Agreed. And also amazed that FBGM is providing constructive feedback for once!

    Yes, SR is full of crap. The old position was not full time until a good TTB route opened. That should happen by the end of this weekend, and probably two solid routes to boot. They were definitely open last Veteran's day and that was only 1 day on the calendar later. I will grant last year was an amazing Snovember, but they are spinning what history has been.

    Huh?

    I absolutely remember years in recent history that SR opened weekends only for the first week or two, even with a ttb route.

    That TTB route was not a solid route below the midstation. They always push to get some thin ribbon down Punch as the download situation on the weekend is horrible at only every 10th chair and having to slow to load and unload those chairs. So yes, they have had a route down on the weekends, but not a solid one. Given what they should have after this weekend for route(s) down and how solid they are, no reason not to be open full time.

    I agree it's been frustrating. I thought K going top-to-bottom was a given fro the weekend but it looks like they don't even plan on starting that process for a while. I want to go Tuesday if we can get a decent snow. They'll definitely have Upper GN, Downdraft, Reason/East Fall, and Rime, with Upper Double Dipper as probable. It's tough skiing the 500feet of North Ridge and doing the stairs while knowing Superstar is buried under more snow than the whole North Ridge area x10. Silver lining is if they get 6" of dense snow and some snowmaking blow over it's not entirely out of the question that Ridge Run or the intermediate portion of Catwalk could open with another 6" or so on Tuesday.

    As much as World Cup is great for the hill financially/PR, and ski racing as a whole...it sucks til December 1. Then those extra compressors go to work and the $20k+ fan guns get buzzing on other parts of the hill and all is forgiven.
    2019-2020 2 days and counting...
