The lack of open terrain with the possibility of holiday crowds persuaded me to not go (skiing at 8:30 on a Sat or Sun morning is not an option for those of us who are still single). It seems to me that Whitetail is continuing its frustrating habit of recent years of not opening up much terrrain in a timely manner.
Liberty was a bit crowded on SATURDAY. Liberty was hosting the SUNFIRE SNOJAM, so I think it was responsible for attracting more mooks than usual. The odd thing was that the backside lifts never had lines. Thanks to the weather they have been making snow like crazy and have 12 runs open now! I think the extra runs will help to reduce the glut of folks in the lift lines. I also think folks were avoiding some of the backside runs due to the blowing snow (Witney's was terrible).
The SNOJAM stuff was pretty disappointing, I was realy hoping for a bikini contest!
From what I hear, the reason Whitetail has not opened more terrain is because warmer weather has hampered snowmaking out there. More so than at Liberty. BTW, latest rumor is that Eastwind and Alpine over at Liberty will be open this week.
Those days are and should be long gone. Perhaps the few remaining ladies at 14th and H could help you in your endeavors.
Anyway, bikini contest or not, Liberty should be awesome this weekend.
