Re: Gore Conditions

This forum is as great as a day in knee deep POW.

I think it’s trail cutting time.

There are a number of good ideas in this thread. It's too bad no one thought of them when there was an open comment period on the UMP.  ORDA would have had to respond to them.  They might even take them seriously if a group of pass holders, property owners, and local business interests filed comments as a group, and described them in the context of the plan's goals, which include a better experience for advanced skiers.

OTOH judging by the progress made on previous plans, we will have another opportunity to comment before they do anything terrible. ORDA has way more plans than actual accomplishments.

Re: Gore Conditions

Was up at Gore this weekend, lots of new snow guns in the parking lot. Heard they are installing some automated snowmaking on the lower mountain and off Bear. Also heard they replaced the pipes that had frozen. Looks like they cut out the hump between Ruby & Saddle.

Sounds like I’m out of the loop (nothing new) Did somebody neglect to drain a line properly?

How does this type of activity get better tracked so that if there is opportunity, efforts can be made?

PS...rough math is telling me that if all goes well with mother nature, guns blowing in about 65 days....that's almost impossible to conceive seeing that the thermostat on my Jeep was registering 91 degrees this afternoon.

Re: Gore Conditions

Whoever engineeres Gores Trail planning/layouts needs a lesson on flowing connectivity.

I get Harvey’s feelings about having a nice high speed chair for skiing glades when there’s snow but from a ski area management perspective they really blew it in the planning process for that expansion.

Agency actions are published in the State Register every two weeks.  I've been following that for years, but not for ORDA stuff.  

The hard part is putting a group together with similar interest.  I would look for hotel and restaurant owners who don't want Gore to be turned into a low rent Okemo, which is what the UMP seems to allow.
