    It's time to revive this bitch thread. Those bitches and butches at Placer County rubber-stamped the fuckin' Base To Base Gondola between Squaw and Alpine...the final Board approval was unanimous....

    Then how do you explain them closing Alpine Meadows? Fuckers.

    You pretty much have to supply your own food, beverages and post ski music these days at Alpine...and know Summit well enough to follow the sun for a full ski day. Word on the street is that the poor...

    Because there is a turn at the mid-station, thats how it operates. The cable cannot operate around the turn, so it is two separate systems. Its the same way the proposed ganjola would work...or just...

    The very reliable source I talked to at Alpine said that they needed to not just dig out the towers, they need to plow away a whole bunch of snow to allow access for construction equipment to get in...

    Sleeper day at Alpine too with more than an inch or two of new snow, which would have made Light Ranger happy. Still guessing there was 17% more snow at Squaw. You made a great choice TahoeJ.

    All lifts (sans ABC) eventually opened at Alpine today...Scott, Sherwood and Lakeview around 1130 and Summit around 1. Even Roundhouse did not open until 940. The snow was definitely pretty slabby. I...

    And to answer your question, yes I believe I support the effort as it has more positives than negatives:

    An east wind generally closes Summit at 50 mph. Today, the remote sensor at Ward showed winds in the low 40's. That said, the chair uses a different wind sensor. If you have ever stood right at...

    Like I said, the shop blamed me, blamed the ski manufacturer, and the democrats for the poor performance. Anybody but them. Respected local shop, but it's unlikely I will ever deal with them again.

    There is neither stoke, nor conditions, or weather reports on page 1 of this thread. I therefore pronounce this thread unofficially not official.
