Anyone know how to get a discounted ticket.  I tried craigslist, ebay, groupon, living social .  .  .   .

Please share if you know of a way. Going to meet my son and daughter in law.  Looking forward to it as I enjoyed the ‘Nut the first and only time I went with them.  I do remember if you get above the first lift, you day is much more pleasant!

Only true discount I know of is on Monday nights.

If you are skiing consecutive days, and buy a multiday lift ticket then the nights are included (both nights).  On holiday weekends, what I often do when with friends with kids is ski 9:00-11:30, take a long lunch break, and get back on the slopes around 3:00 or 3:30 and ski into the lights until 6:00 or 7:00.

When were you last at Mnut?  The lodge building was renovated before last season.  The umbrella bar on the porch is a fun place to have a drink or something to eat.

If Main Street is open, an alternative way to get to Lift 6 to the summit is to take the shorter beginner lift, then Lift 5 and go skier’s left  and cut over on Yee Ha.

Great insider tip.  I will be going with someone who will be mostly lift 5 (seemed to keep us above the masses) but I will use that excursion for my trips to the top!  Will tip one back at the Umbrella bar too based on your suggestion.  Thanks.

Yeah, I always follow the route suggested by Marznc when possible. Looks like we’ll get some cold nights the second half of this week, so hopefully the mass transit - yee ha connector can get opened soon. The new slopeside bar and renovated lodge are nice - I did not make it out to Mnut last year so it was nice to see the improvements this year. Marz - when will you be out there next? Was there with my family on Dec 31 and had a good time.

The nice part about Lift 5 is that it’s possible for a mixed-ability group to ride the same lift but ski different terrain.  Meaning folks who aren’t up for skiing from the top can ride together and off-load at Mid-station.  Can either meet at the base of the lift or wait a little ways from Midstation to ski down together.  Just have to agree which way the group wants to go down from Mid-station.

Now that Lift 5 is a triple, the line doesn’t get too long even on weekends.  The singles line (far left) can be handy too.

I hope to be at Mnut later this week.  Definitely trying to make it for the Demo Weekend Jan. 7-8.

The BBQ pizza turned into my favorite last season.  The renovations were delayed a year because the construction of the new ski school building ran into a few hitches.  The relatively new VP who has Snow Sports on his list of responsibilities is a skier.  Can’t hurt when there are ideas put forward to improve the ski hill.

I had to laugh when the Liftopia Best In Snow lists came out recently.  Mnut was left off the Most Challenging list completely.  Clearly more a function of who filled out the survey and where most people ski in the southeast.  Given that most people on the slopes at Mnut can’t ride Lift 6 or ski from the top of Lift 5, they aren’t going to consider Mnut has any challenging terrain.  Which is fine with me. ;-)

Mnut was #5 for Least Crowded, just behind Beech.  Maybe, maybe not.

In case you’re wondering … Canaan Valley was listed as Most Challenging in the SE, over Snowshoe and Tline.  The idea is that votes were “normalized” to give smaller places (based on skier visits) a chance to beat out larger places.

On most weekends, the parents of the Ski/snowboard teams grill hot dogs and burgers at the base of Lift 6.  As long as you don’t mind a port-a-potty, it’s possible to avoid the lodge completely at lunch time.

Definitely pays to check downstairs for a quick snack or lunch (cold only) if the upstairs lunch line is long.

There is a restroom on the top floor and the biggest one is on the ground floor.  If planning to head out afterwards on Lift 2 (Geronimo), can ski down past the ramp and leave skis near the door right next to the larger restrooms.
