    The first tracks line I thought was pretty funny. This, however... did you forget the wink at the end?

    Wow, that was one hell of a meltdown over a passing, insignificant dig.
    I remember a bottomless freedom...

    What the fuck is wrong with you Benny? STFU already, it's not cool to wholesale everyone upstate and in VT as junkies. If you were really too fancy to ride with hoi polloi you should have moved to The Yellowstone Club long ago. But you haven't, because you're just a bitter old fuck and, mostly, a poser.

    We are all truly in awe. And for sure this place would be better without your 50 thousand posts. Fuck you.
    i agree to some point, i've threatened him a couple times,

    i'll not post here anymore except for ski related content, and such.

    i'll begin posting in the tr forum. was thinking about it anyway.

    Had to double check if this was the Ikon thread.

    Anyway, spoke to someone senior at Alterra and they do plan to open this year on schedule. The current plan is people in same household will ride the lift together.

    Otherwise they will have two people on each side of a quad and only one person to a quad if they request it. Imagine all those empty seats on a pow day....

    Face covering will be mandatory as well.

    Not to sound ridiculous, but I wonder what will qualify as a valid face covering. While balaclavas would seem like an obvious qualifier, I'm thinking about the converse where Delta has banned face masks with an exhaust valve. I'm hoping that balaclavas with little vent holes won't fall under the same boat on the ski slopes.

    I'm cautiously optimistic for the ski season, but considering how quickly things can flip in the span of 2 weeks, I don't want to be too optimistic about planning for a season that's still 3-4 months away.

    Interesting about delta banning valves.
    I’ve been bitching about valve masks for months.
    Masks are in theory protecting others. Valves don’t do that.

    Neither do buffs or bandanas, or surgical masks, if you aren’t coughing. But oh well. Let’s keep the charade going.

    Powder lines will be insane.

    I might skip skiing and just throw eggs at the singles that refuse to ride a quad with another single.

    Here's a test you can do at home to see if a buff or bandana works. Put your hand 12" in front of you then blow. Note the feeling of air on your hand. Put a buff/bandana over your mouth, and repeat the experiment.

    There's a reason they say "face covering" and accept those as mask substitutes. Probably not as good as a tight fitting mask of course, but definitely way more effective than nothing and not deserving of your dismissive "they don't work" unsubstantiated statement.

    And FWIW, I have a mask that has a valve and when I do the same test as above, I can't feel the air. But I don't wear it because I don't like the way it fits and I don't want people like you acting like I'm somehow not playing by the rules (I don't wear buffs or bandanas either).

    I was digging through a storage container in the garage this weekend, and low and behold! I find an N95 mask with a valve in it. i'm thinking I just hit the jackpot! Then I see Delta's ban on these masks. I guess I'm flying United! (Actually no plans to fly anytime soon, unless it's private jet.)

    And don't throw eggs, that's not cool. Besides, snow balls are way easier and they are free too.

    Agree about the eggs. Respect the egg, it was a chicken's unborn child.
    Silverado lift at Squaw gets huge, unruly lines on powder days. People riding one or two on the 3 person chairs are pelted mercilessly by snowballs--packed tight as only a Sierra snowball can be packed.

    N95 masks with valves protect you, but not the public from you. Surgical masks protect the public from you, but only protect you from the public to a mush lesser degree. Cloth masks, bandanas, et al are helpful, but not fully protective either was, A little is better then nothing, and just how much benefit/protection one needs depends on circumstances. A Buff in a ski line is probably pretty helpful, in an airport or flight, not so much.

    I agree it is a constitutional right for Americans to be assholes...its just too bad that so many take the opportunity...

    They better not fuck with the singles line this year and make me board with some mouth-breathing jagoff. Fuck that.

    Singles line could really be for singles this year, it'll be like a dream come true! But not. :/

    They better start spinning and loading the lifts at 6:30 if they want to avoid pow-day gondy line frenzy. Esp at Steamboat. That shit got outta hand last year after they stopped letting people cue in line inside the gondy building before it started spinning. They made us wait outside while giving up the entire inside space to 'first-tracks' people. This resulted in the gondy line going all the way down and back to the bus stop corral. Epic. Or, Ikonic.

    On second thought, I shoulda bought a First Tracks pass before they sold out. Dang.

    They better, they better--what, are you 7?
    As far as gondis, any place that has an option not to run a gondola or a tram probably will not run it.
