What’s New for 2005: Blue Mountain 4
Blue Mountain purchased a new Zoegg pipe groomer over the summer and completely redesigned its two terrain parks, Sidewinder and Terrain Run.
Last winter, it turned Lower Sidewinder into a snowcross trail-a trail with jumps, banked turns, and other terrain features. Due to the popularity of snowcross, it will keep this change in place for the 2005-06 season.
The Valley School West learning area will have two lifts: a triple chairlift and a new magic carpet conveyer belt.
WiFi access is now available in both Blue Mountain lodges.
NASTAR races will be held every Thurday night and Sunday afternoon.
Thats good news about the pipe groomer. It will be alot of fun to try my hand at that.
Blue Mountain has also started a Freeride Ski Program this season. The program is 10 weeks, however single weekend day sessions can be purchased. Starts on 12/17/05 at 9am and goes for 10 weeks every Sat and Sun from 9am-1pm. Check out http://freeriders.itgo.com for more information.
I always checked every day in the winter for Joes "Snow News is Good News" on the Snowshoe site. He even kept up with reporting a couple of times per month during the off season which made the unseason seem to pass more quickly. Looks like whoever is the new guy hasnt gotten up speed since the page hasnt been update since July 12 not good. Actually, the site is becoming more generic Intrawest and less local Snowshoe. Im not sure this is a good thing.
Thanks Joe, for all those years. We'll miss ya.
