    Eldora clusterfuck Friday?

    Whatís the over/under of Eldora being a complete clusterfuck on Friday? My youngest daughter is dying to go skiing and like any good father I want to nurture that desire.

    Tried moving Thanksgiving so we could go Thursday but that didnít fly.

    Now that Copper and WP are open? Maybe only a mild clusterfuck.

    Why don't they have night skiing? I hear they have night races.

    Clusterfuck may have not materialized. Timbers webcam showing tons of empty chairs and 9:15 tweet says "plenty of parking." Looks like its gettign a light dusting. The snow was pretty good chalk yesterday. Damn, I need to get a bus pass.
    If we're gonna wear uniforms, we should all wear somethin' different!

    After a long Thanksgiving we settled on an few afternoon laps, parked in about the fourth row, the main lot by the bunny hill was only about half full. Snow on the ground was pretty good, blowing snow was a bit much for the kiddos. Dad had fun though.

    I wanted to post about Eldora, but didn't feel like starting a new thread. And since "Loveland tomorrow?" is the official Loveland thread, I figured "Eldora clusterfuck Friday?" was the perfect official Eldora thread. So I am going to coopt it.

    They are open. There is skiing. There are groomers. Everything that doesn't have blown snow is pretty fucking bare.

    Parking reservations are annoying AF, but at least it seemed to work somewhat smoothly.

    They have a decent amount of groomers open, so it's definitely more than the WROD, and what is open is decent for what it is, but it is still pretty damn bare.

    The Corona lift is open (in addition to Indian Peaks), which is really weird. There is nothing open under the Corona lift. So you can ride it up, head back toward the front, and then hit Around the Horn back to Corona, wtf? It would make some sense if concessions were open at the top, but of course they're not. Weird.

    They had a shit ton of guns on corona (not going because warm) with some guys out there moving them around, so maybe it won't be long (though it needed a lot more snow).

    I have never been to Eldora but it's 2020 and it makes perfect sense that a lift called Corona is running.

    Nice!

    They just announced the penalties for no showing a parking reservation:

    1st no show: warning email
    2nd no show: lose your next reservation
    3rd no show: lose all of your reservations

    You can cancel (and not get counted as a no show) up to an hour before your reservation time.

    Counted 38 snow guns active today hammering corona. Was impressed they could run that many off the main line

    Also watch a young lady double eject into the trees for a broken arm. that was tough to see, patrol was on it pretty quick though.

    They must be panicked to get more open.

    Update: Corona lift still open. Still no runs open other than Around the Horn. Guns a-plenty on Corona.
