Sounds like Tramline or Kinsman Glade at Cannon. Imagine what Tramline would be like with a manmade base!

Would snowmaking on Tramiline realistically be doable without rock blasting the character out of what appears (I've never skied it) to make that trail great?

If you're arguing just leaving it alone and running pipes up the side and blowing snow over all the rock debris, keep in mind that activity might raise my taxes a few pennies a year you anti-environment, pro-development masshole!!!!!!

Settle down Threecy wannabe. :-DNo change to the trail. Just run pipes up the side. A man made base would make it skiable more often.

Thanks for the link freeskier! Just to be clear our piece wasn't done from the press release, but from direct conversation with Whiteface mgmt.

I think Tramline is a step above in challenge/terrain than Hoyt's to be fair. Kinsman is a glade and not really comparable outside of fallline specifically.

Good things though, they (Whiteface) have needed this to make the expansion truely worth it IMO.
