    Green chair is looking close to being done. All of the cables are up and it looks like the liftie shack is getting ready for a facelift today. When you going to hang some chairs?


    Very soon. Cable is under tension, comm line is all wired up, Iíve got to put the engine room on the base terminal this week and then they can wire the cabinet in. The shack is being gone through right now and completely redesigned & rewired and thatís almost done too. Lots happening really fast!

    Bought my Throwback card today. As with last year, I hope I regret buying it and not a pass, but unfortunately I think that will be unlikely. Its a great deal for someone getting up 5-15 times a year.

    Glad to hear you're locked in! We going to get to see Kai and your way prettier half too? I've got a toasty wood stove and plenty of family crash space fyi!

    Yep you should see them all! I bought Roopa a throwback pass too so she's less likely to hem and haw whether it's worth it to come up if she only wants to ski for half a day.

    And thanks! We may take you up on that. We'll see how Kai takes to the slopes... He's rocking his strider bike though and loves coasting down hills, so I'm hoping he takes after my side in his feelings toward gravity.

    Let me know if you need an extra hand with anything. I'll be around Thursday night through Monday night.

    And Marcus, we generally have a couple of bedrooms free on any given weekend so let us know if you need a place to stay and DoWork's casa is full.

I mean, your fail is so dense it has become a "black hole of fail" that has a gravitational pull strong enough to attract the fail of others, hence the "dating sucks" thread scenario.

    Thanks! We'll see how much we get up this year. I'm really hoping that a two year old is more conducive to it than a 0/1 year old was, as the last two years were somewhat lean for me.

    Volunteer Day coming up this weekend. I'll be up although probably not going up the mountain. My feet (really, my left foot) are kind of fucked and I haven't figured out how to unfuck them yet.

    As my mother says, "Getting old is not for pussies."

    Nevertheless, I will do what I can to be useful.

    I will bring something special for playing tunes. If anyone thinks they have a great, portable bluetooth speaker...

    Pffftttt!!!!

    It was my pleasure.


    Literally.


    Looking forward to this weekend! Always nice to see everyone and get jazzed on tree skiing. This year is going to be sooooo good!

    If anyone is interested in volunteering for the Magic Mountain Ambassador program for the 2018/19 season, send me a PM and I can discuss the requirements/benefits with you.

    Does smelling like a skunk automatically disqualify a candidate?

    Asking for a friend :P
    Going where the wind don't blow so strange
    Maybe on some high cold mountain range

    Maybe not, but a shift drink during your 8-10am shift probably does.

    Y'all still have that Snowbowl lift? I've heard things were not going so well across the valley with the new one.

    I wonder if I'd be good at this, as over the years I feel I have developed the correct conversational balance on a lift ride up with other skiers. At first it wasn't easy. I learned to ask open ended questions, but intersperse the conversation with the right amount of silence so we can enjoy nature and the outdoors during the ride. I'm also trained in CPR and have a working knowledge of the apres and nightlife options around the Londonderry area.

    If you are good at Tetris, you can help park cars.

    So you're politely telling me onay on the ambassadoray?
    Btw. I thought the whole valet idea was dead? I was a valet at a restaurant many years ago and I have excellent skills.
