I went to Roundtop last night Sat, 2/7. One of the more enjoyable night ski sessions (5-10pm, $36) I've had in many years. Course I only night ski once or twice a season. Everything open. Crowds not bad, esp over by Gunbarrel and Ramrod. They had a great base, it was kind of over baked when we first started due to warm day, but then got real nice as night went on. Faster, carvable, nice soft bumps on several trails. Gunbarrel was the best bump run, up high and down low. I think the short part at top might be the steepest piece of terrain at any Snowtime resort?? My son kicked my butt in the bumps. Skied in fleece/hoodies, lot different than the usual early Feb night ski on harrd pack and 20 degree temps. Several nice and very active parks, saw a kid do a flip off one jump. In the old days only people named Stein did that?!? Skied on three different pairs of skis during the night, Stockli 168cm, RX8 175cm, and an old pair of 1996 Heads 170cm that were actually the best in bumps, had little shape and were soft/flexible.
Hadn't been to Roundtop in 6 or 7 years. Went to new tubing park by mistake at first, found out they don't sell lift tics there. It's amazing that tubing must draw about 30-40% of their business now, has it's own lodge, parking lot and a real long covered magic carpet.
