Why in the world was the Gondola closed if there wasn't much wind like on the first subzero day. If I was there and the Gondola was running I would lap it all day long, and so would many others. The only reason why the Gondola might need to be closed is if the drive froze up,(it is a top drive so this may have happened) but aren't ski lifts designed to run in cold temps. Sounds like they chose not to run it to save some $$$, at least on the 1st cold day. Does anyone else know the real reason that it wasn't running?
When you ski at Hunter and Mountain Creek all the time, you feel like the king of those places, but go north to Whiteface and you'll feel like a gaper.
