You liked stumbling down that stupid staircase and trying to get through that skinny hall to get to an ill configured bathroom that doubled as an entrance to a restaurant?

 

I don't

The top was okay, I guess, but there could have been better deck space, better seating, a better laid out food line, and better access from the mountain (entrance just opened right into a bunch of tables so you felt like you were fighting over people from the start).

They'll replace it with something better and everyone here will be happier for it.

Re: Fire at Mid on WF

I tend to agree with Camp.  It's the in-between rippers, sitting mountainside on a morning, coffee in hand, 360 degree view that I enjoy more than most things in life.  The venue itself was ehh.

What will really suck is the length of time it will take to get to a truly finished product.  I give it to late December 2022, and only that short because of the university games.

With all the new building materials can you imagine the deck they could put on. That view is forever there to begin with.

I heard that some of the ORDA board members want to chopper the Saddle Lodge over from Gore as a replacement for  this season. Then, next summer, they will chopper it back and replace it with the new Mt Van Hove Lodge.

Just get the old Bear Mountain patrol trailer from Gore, drag it up with a groomer, slap some T-111 on it.......call it good for 7-8 years.

Re: Fire at Mid on WF

For this season a deck and some picnic tables over on the low side opposite from the burnt up deck along the tree line with a yurt would work.  Should be doable without a big expense.

Pretty sure the powers that be want to not have locals pinicing in the new lodge so that deck and yurt could remain as a locals hang out after the lodge gets rebuilt.  Based on how they turned the bar into a restaurant I would expect to see something very different replace it.

Re: Fire at Mid on WF

Perhaps for this year they can make a big pile of snow overtop of the carnage, and place a temporary deck with a bunch of lounge chairs, and possibly even a fire pit? Maybe a space for Grillman and others to grill. Maybe even some sort of memorial.
I'll take boilerplate ice over wet snow any day

That would be "ironical."

Ironically, there used to be a fire pit at mid.  It was there for years until the roof was replaced, the fire inspector came up and made them shut it down.  Then there was a gas fireplace that no-one working inside of the lodge could figure out how to turn on.

I hope that they come up with something.  A deck, a yurt, i will bring my grill.  I will grill for friends, family and strangers.  There are a few that i will never grill for again.  

Thanks for those of you who did not instantly blame me for causing the fire and for those of you who did not ask on social media if I left by grill burning on the mountain that night.  A stupid question during a terrible time.

If you did post such a question on social media,  fuck you.

A terrible tragedy occurred.   If you posted something stupid, You are an total asshole.
