Yup, Hickory will be 100% this weekend.  The "poachers" report over knee deep pow on top.

Re: Today at Hickory Ski Center

New rumors about Hickory.

Hickory has bought more adjacent land and has already or will very soon complete new trails.

Hickory is talkin about buying a chair for next season.

Hickory has already purchased a state of the art snowmaking system. It's the same system that Mt Snow purchased. Unclear if it's enough to cover the whole hill.

Snowballs will be buying Cristal Champagne and lobsters for all!

Ok. That last one is a stretch. But the others are floating around from some Hickory employees. Got see if we can verify this.

I heard a rumor that Hickory is actually owned by Powdr Corp.

Re: Today at Hickory Ski Center

Rehash:

IDK, Many locals hold shares in it. Wish I did. The main driving force now is Brad or Brian Van Pelt( I think that's his name) a Texas rich dude who used to live in this area. He bought some shares, don't think it's a majority, but the locals still hold a large percentage of shares. I don't think there's any corporation involved, but things do change.

Give or take a little I'm pretty sure that's the scenario. MC2 used to ski there. Wonder what his ideas for the mtn would be.

Re: Today at Hickory Ski Center

Skied Hickory on Saturday.  Knee deep and untracked up top.  Best ski day I've had in the east this season.  The upper mountain has now been ski groomed.  There was still places to catch some untracked turns at the end of the day.  Pray for more snow.
