One of these years -- this year, I hope -- I'd like to drop by The Homestead and ski for a day. (Yes, I know it's primarily an overnight destination with 'way more than skiing but my ski budget can handle only the ski ticket right now.) JimK's firsthand report from 2005
provides a very helpful overview.
Can anyone report on their conditions, snowmaking and trails this year?
Unfortunately, The Homestead's website and recorded ski report provide little information. The numbers in the snow report
don't seem to add up or tell much:
* 2 of 9 trails open. Which ones? Do the others ever open?
* 75% of terrain open. All right, I guess that means the major runs are the ones that are open.
* 2 of 5 lifts open. Hmm...I didn't know they had that many but OK.
* 45 of 45 acres open. An Error Has Occurred. This Window Will Close Now. Do You Want to Send an Error Report?
Also, are the trails to skier's right (e.g., Goat) closed permanently?
