I haven't seen so many guns going at one time in a number of years. At this pace I would assume all of the South Peak slopes will be open be the weekend. The North Peak Trails were all up and Running...all were in nice shape, I skipped Upper Walking Boss as that too had more than 30 snow guns blasting away.
It was a dark-ish day today and snowed intermittently - that combined with the New tower guns, made it a light lens day for goggles.
I took out my brand new skis today...that truly shows faith in the ability to lay down the man made stuff...and not ruin a new pair of skis. The Report of the Rossignol Statos - Gs 183 cm...was a resounding thumbs up BTW.
The two new trails opened for this season on the South Peak side of Loon (Twitcher & Jobber) presented a nice fall- line, great pitch and earned the Black Diamond rating they were given. Boom Run was open, the Double Black Diamond trail Rip Saw had 40+ guns as did Cruiser...so those will be open for the weekend worriers - if I were asked to venture a guess (with the new tower gun system) I would say they will be worth skiing the day they open.
Looking to Purchase a slope side Home - Building Site or Condominium at Loon Mountain, Give Alpine Lakes Realty a call - Our Parent Company Cargill Construction has just completed out 13th home on the South Mountain side at Loon and they are truly spectacular.
...I try to ski Mid-week as most of my second home showings happen during the weekend - Looking to ski midweek with a Realtor - Drop me a note.
