    Tssk, tssk. I think you meant to say Lift 7, not Lift I or Freeway Lift.

    Not that I've skied it, but my sense is that Hoyt's might be a little too narrow to go half and half.

    Not to hijack the thread, but, where are they going to fit the other trail next to Hoyt's? From the plans, the lower half of the second trail was supposed to squeeze in between Hoyt's and the lift, but it doesn't look like there's enough room there.

    I HOPE the compromise won't be to just widen Hoyt's in order to handle the increased traffic. We've got enough wide boulevards on the mountain.
    It is suppose to go further down pats lookout below on Wilmington and then meet at the bottom of the lift.

    ??

    i was talking about the trail that's supposed to be parallel to hoyt's. i don't think there's another trail planned near lookout below, unless the plans have changed?

    Iíve thought this myself. When there is enough snow on it that trail looks great. It has a nice pitch, not too wide, some rocks to drop off if you want; it just has a very nice flow to it. People who Iíve spoken to that have poached it love it.

    Itís suppressing that Whiteface and Gore are both run by ORDA, yet they have polar opposite approaches to opening lift lines. At Gore they have Double Barrel, High Pines Glades, and Dark Side Glades all of which are a blast to ski. Gore also categorizes them as glades so they may not even count against their trail mileage limit, Iím unclear on that.

    Hereís a picture I took of Dark Side Glades a couple of seasons ago. There is far more exposed rock then there is under I lift (Freeway lift).



    The terrain under Chair 6 is also skiable, but a power cable would have to be moved. Under I lift all that would have to be done is take down the rope.

    The trail that is now Blazerís Bluff was blocked by a wood fence for a lot of years. Then a couple of years ago they took the fence down, which was a great idea. When it has snow it, it is a fun little trail to ski. Under I lift would be even better IMO. Letís hope someday they drop the rope and let people ski it. High Peaks Drifter glade has a nice ring to it, don't ya think? :wink: :lol:
    They used to open most of the lift lines. I've got a ton of great memories of powder runs under 6, and remember an amazing run with Lori Singer under Freeway. No rope ducking required, but I will say you need a pretty decent natural snowfall to access either ( unless you really want to do some damage ).

    Ahhh, BUTTWIDENER conspiracy, but you can't expect a Jagerette to know about the dirty dealings of Centerplate. Time to contact your crooked NYS assemblyman/woman, but don't expect much 'cause they only know snow is something they pay to get moved out of their driveways.

    I see what you are saying yes that is a trail I guess they were suppose to cut this year but with the money problem who knows. Hope that answered your question?

    Thanks.

    Yeah, I knew about the money and time issues causing them not to cut the trail....I was more wondering at this point where they'd even put the second trail, since Hoyt's seems to have been cut too close to the liftline to permit another trail between the lift and trail.

    We'll see....

    Anyway, with Gore making a big fuss about snowmaking being installed on Sagamore this offseason and Whiteface silent on their plans, it makes me think not much will be done this year on the mountain.

    I was thinking about this in the car yesterday. Here are a couple more ideas:

    Either replace or remove the seat covers on chair 6. The shredded ones really make the lift look pretty ghetto.

    More upbeat music in the main lodge - more fun stuff. The selections over the last couple of years have been snoozers... Amercian Pie doesn't really make me want to pound through the bumps.

    More deals for pass holders - the coupons last year were a good idea. what about food discounts on certain days. I might buy more instead of bring my own.

    I agree 100%
