  • I missed this from 11/10 on NESI (photos removed). Majella Announces Delay in Saddleback Sale, ConstructionThe fate of the Maine ski resort remains unknown.Friday, November 10, 2017, NewEnglandSkiIndustry.com In a Facebook post yesterday, Majella…
  • Nothing new here. As I read the $40 mill. in investments, it made me wonder more about the Rangeley. I don't recall any report of dramatic failure. Why did the lift problem come up all of a sudden? How did the Berrys invest so much, yet overlook Ran…
  • This Facebook post gives little details as the newspaper article indicates. Plus there is a twist in the lift replacement discussion/plans. Earlier in the year Majella said they would replace the Rangeley with a FGQ next summer and replace the Cups…

  • Here's a drone video of some of Saddlebacks lifts and trails:
  • Did all 220 new guns go to North Face? I thought that was still all air water ground guns on that side?The video does show them installing 'air' tower guns on the North Face but I don't know the direct answer.

  • I wasn't able to copy and paste this 11/6 Brattleboro newspaper, but here's the "link". (I don't know how to literally link.) http://www.reformer.com/stories/mount-snows-30m-snowmaking-project-a-wrap,523574
  • The Killington Superstar and North Ridge cams show most of the snow they made is gone. This speaks to the importance of the long range (10 days is about as good as it gets) forecast. If it isn't good, the money spent on snowmaking may be wasted, exc…
  • I thought of prevailing wind also. But I don't think either made such a reference. Mt. Baker definitely didn't. I think  the other was Saddleback.
  • I didn't know how much text would fit on 2.0. Here's the video summary: As General Manager Duncan Howat outlines in the above video, the new lift has whole bunch of advantages, including:A large new generator provides power to the entire White Salmo…
  • An obvious omission is WV’s T-bar on High Country. Also these are only Ski NH association areas. HKD towers are certainly popular.

  • I missed as part of the article for NewEnglandSkiIndustry: Majella has been advertising an "EB-5 investment opportunity" on its web site. The immigrant investor program made national headlines last year when Jay Peak and Burke Mountain were raid…

  • I may be interested in watching the work and meeting some other SJers. Is it next Wed. 10/25 for the work?

  • Hum, instead of the link, the facebook video was displayed but clicking it blanked it out. I'll try again.
  • Hum, I thought there was, you certainly get that impression when riding. So since the mid-station has been built, I was guessing at "new towers". Oh, I looked again, from the photos I attached it looks like at least 3 towers had been removed, and th…
  • I put new in quotes in my reference to the towers. If I recall they got towers from here and there mainly for the mid-station. However, there is one photo on NewEnglandSkiIndustry that should digging at the bottom of Conclusion. 
  • I was unaware of a mid-station on the Snowdon Triple. Haven't been to Killington in years.How is it used, to unload before hitting the summit, or to serve as an early season lift from summit down to mid-mountain?  I just went back to give the link t…
  • This is a long article, I eliminated the content under the last subjects. Some of this is old (even completed) news. Snowdon got “new” towers and mid-station last season. Killington appears to be committed to keeping this 1973 Heron-Poma for someti…

  • Thanks. I posted it because of the ramp/slide - unique. The ski area looks small despite having a HSQ.
  • Ski resort is place to stay with ski trails. It was this ropesways article and photo that I thought would be an unusual "What ski area/resort?" The one I posted was from Horseshoe's site. You can see their trails and lifts (inc. HSQ) on their site…
