    Nice early season day. Cover is thin down low, and it most likely won't last til next weekend. Nice easy, long run was fun to lap. The narrow bottom section got crowded, but it was worth the ride. imageimageimage

    Wow, you can really see the difference in production with elevation.  Why doesn't Bretton Woods open on Express or Upper Swoop --> Bigger Ben --> Big Ben with the Fabyan Triple or High Ridge --> Upper Swoop --> Casacade with the Rosebrook Express?  Seems to be an ideal early-season setup with the lodge on top of the Bethlehem Express.

    Do you mean take the Beth. Express chair up & down from the Latitude 44 lodge? Then I would think that would be way to much walking for their clientele (and me) on the Rosebrook side. Now the Fabyan side ok, but then they would have to open 2 chairs and probably the L44 lodge instead of just one chair.  And IIRC they route Upper Swoop traffic way around the lodge at skier's right to avoid collisions with the gas tanks, skiers coming off the lift & out of the lodge, so it would not be a very contiguous run.

    BW skied great this past Friday, 2/3. Fun Telegraph t-bar laps to access some nice untracked low angle glades. imageimage
