But why? You have a pass at Bell not Platty!
If the 6 pack wasn't down, I would suggest you go to Hunter. Seems like they got the goods, and had a fair effort at expanding terrain underway. Should be good skiing there....
That's a real drag about Bell.
I'm planning on skiing this weekend, and just can't zero in on where. Bell would be the easy choice if I thought they would open up some fun stuff, but it doesn't look like it. Could even spend the night somewhere friday to increase my range, but just not sure it will be worth it. Would gladly do that for Platty, but not sure what will be open...
What do you mean 'no bumps' policy? That's the dumbest thing I've heard.
at a place like belleayre where being at the top of any lift allows you to access the entire resort, i wouldn't really care very much about what is and isn't open after a 2 foot dump. just read the terrain and be smart about it and ski it.
Ha, we skied from 9:30 - 2:30, I'm toast. I kept telling myself all those chunky groomer days in November were preparing me for powder...they weren't. I'm just fat and old.Was delightful??? The lifts run til 3:30 ya know. Get yer ass back out there!
[emoji106] were a few water bars to avoid, but generally conditions couldn't have been better, sunny to boot, and the new gondola was nice to ride as it was quite breezy. Nice and calm in the trees!at a place like belleayre where being at the top of any lift allows you to access the entire resort, i wouldn't really care very much about what is and isn't open after a 2 foot dump. just read the terrain and be smart about it and ski it.
That's the plan boss.
I think I'm a little bit more fussy about my skis than you though. I'll start out with my rock skis and switch over to my Kore 105's if warranted. Cornhead told me he got no base damage today so that's encouraging. Would love to bring out the new 105's but the rock skis will do just fine at first.
Yes I not posting all my reason
1 is season pass price for Bellaire Gore and Whiteface which I have is just little more than Platty. And Platy is generally open about half the time of Bellaire Gore or Whiteface
I have few other reasons
I not working now so me saving as much money is very important
So is being able to ski with my friends
So this year is what best for me
Maybe next year I buy NY ski gold pass
You said Belleayre should be forced to give all their snow to platekill. I asked why why would you want to give away the snow from the mountain that you have a pass at to a mountain you don't have a pass at?

Typical house stuff...no biggie. The vent has been getting a little loud so I'm not surprised it gave up.
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.
The ride home yesterday at 230 was a breeze..I though it woukd be a shitshow but it was fine
