I’ve been doing quite a bit of preseason hiking at gore. Twister glades have professionally manicured. You could probably be ski it on with skinny skis and 6 inches of snow. Uncas has been brush-hogged so there won’t be a repeat of last year when early snowfall lead to thicket whiplash. High Pines to be hogged soon. Wild Air has been revamped with an additional 20-30 feet widening on skier’s right. I think that it has probably doubled in width since being cut almost 20 years ago. Lots of snowmaking work with new pipes and guns. It is sad to see the paucity of crowds on summer and fall weekends. The attendants to the carnival rides sit sit all day with only occasional customers. the new zip line is very minor league IMHO.
