Way, way......WAY more painful. At least a stone passes, my in-laws (after the $hit I had to deal with yesterday) are only going to grow into a bigger pia! I'd gladly pass a dozen stones if it meant I didn't even have to deal with my m-i-l again, ever.
If Magic is "on your list" of places to check out... just do yourself a favor and stop wondering if it's going to be good this
weekend. It will be. I may or may not be around depending on coaching duties but come upstairs to the bar, find our table, say hey, maybe dole out a few high fives and join in the fun.
They only got 3-4" overnight so it was below their 6" mid-week opening policy. They are expecting another 2-4" overnight tonight so tomorrow definitely will be at or above 6" total. This is about what I figured was going to happen.
On one hand, I think it makes sense to try to extend the weekend for folks already at the mountain, especially those that are interested in not heading home towards metro areas until after the storm ends later today.
On the flip side, I suspect most folks staying the extra night at Magic Sunday night into Monday maybe pass holders. I think they might have done better financially with more revenue if they made Tuesday their powder day and they had the most untracked powder in the northeast up for offer. I might have gone tomorrow but since they opened today, that isn't an option. Today wasn't worth it for 3"(ha! it is funny how the current cycle has warped our perceptions that were much more desperate one month ago).
