Not too inspiring from a mogul stand point though...

Seems like they're catering to their core market with little to no consideration to more advanced/expert skiers...
Exactly, they're maximizing their profit. I can’t blame them for that. As a ski mountain/hill it is what it is.
I’m glad the Ace of Spades is open as a trail at night anyways.
I agree wholeheartedly re Jericho.
It's certainly wide enough -- 1/3 on skier's right should be allowed to bump up, and 2/3 on skier's left groomed, that's still plenty wide for the high speed ripping Jericho's good for.
Especially on the top half, most people ski the left side of the trail anyway. Even if they groomed the entire bottom half, where I think it does narrow down a little, the top half is a superhighway.
And if kept a lane of bumps top to bottom, it would rival Blockbuster at Plattekill.
Even if their core market is families and intermediates -- there's plenty of good skiers in the mix and they get bored just racking up the vert.
Rant over. Hopefully Jiminy management is reading this - they should know this is definitely a factor in skier choices, I ended up taking my group to Belleayre rather than Jiminy several times late last season because Belleayre has the better bumps. And our season tix are at Belleayre this year.
