    Well I'm glad you got a great day in. Hopefully we cross paths some time this year. Seems like we keep missing by a day.

    Somethings going on at Belle and I suspect it's Bruce Transue. I think he was sent to Belle by Hunter to screw things up. Frankly his season opening strategy (if you can call it that) is awful. And his bump (or more accurately no bumps) policy stinks. They have devoted zero snowmaking to steeper terrain and just blew some snow on upper Wanatuska a day or two ago. One lousy half black diamond trail open and if you want to ski it you then have to take Iroquois Road back to the bottom of the gondola.

    Really just totally pathetic. And now they're going to waste this 23" snowfall because it fell mostly on dirt. I was thinking of going there tomorrow but now I think I will go to K for 2 days Wed Thurs.
    "No Bump policy " Have to wonder if that is a dollar and cents issue vs safety thing . I would wager more people get seriously injured on groomers vs bumps .



    It takes less base to support a groomed trail vs a mogul run . Keeping base under the trough is key to prevent the sun from melting out the trough .
    Groundhog day lets go skiing !

    Lucky you! I left Wilmington at 4:30 and it was mostly blizzard driving on the NY Thruway. Luckily not many cars out. Shockingly I only saw one accident the whole way home, 18 wheeler off the side of the Thruway.

    well, time to get serious about where to ski saturday.

    Coming from NJ. Bell and Hunter are 2-3/4 to 3. PLatty is 3-1/4-3-1/2. I usually don't day trip platty.

    Kind of feel like Hunter has the where with all to expand trail count for the weekend, and maybe even open the new stuff, which I haven't skied.

    I like Bell a lot better, but sounds like they are slow playing expansion, and I'm thinking the poachable trails will be a little skied off by Saturday.

    If I knew platty would have a few steeps open, I would probably go up friday night and ski there saturday.

    Votes?
