whats drop out??????
I was wondering when the truth would finally be known. Ok - I admit it - I am a Drop Out.
Drop Out is a little cut through trail that let's people getting off the jib junction double cut across angel drop and get to Drop In and the expert terrain (aka "K" side). It was new last year with the new double chair. Last year it was fun to be skiing with folks over to K side, ditch them at the split and then "magically" reappear in the middle of Drop In.
Part of the newness of the trail map is that it was redrawn by Jame Nieheus. The other additions/changes are:
-the new magic carpet on Northern Lights
-moving 101 park place from Stalker to the old 1/2 pipe location on skiers left of Snow Park
-moving the 1/2 pipe to a new clearing in between the jib junction double and lower Angel Drop/Jib Junction
-the "trivia question" trail is now shown on the map, but still not named on the map
The trivia question is:
Name the only trail at Whitetail that has a trail sign but is not shown on the map.
Fallmount has always been on the maps. It's just now easier to read.
Skiable acreage has grown by 3 acres (117->120). Uphill capacity has grown from 12,200 people per hour to 15,000 pph. That seems like a lot for a magic carpet (a person every 1.3 seconds). Hmm - I wonder what a magic carpet six pack would look like?
