We are moving towards a high speed, cushy bubble forum and are going to raise admission prices to pay for it. But only for high school kids who can afford it. Every else is free. It's costing me $2Gs. I'll PM you with an address for your check.
Sounds good.  How about Magic Mountain installs a high speed cushy heated bubble 6 pack chair with WiFi and charging stations so people can upload their trip reports from there to this site on the way up using the high speed cushy bubble forum.  Dramatically increase snowmaking and grooming at magic while they are at it and raise ticket prices to Stowe rates to pay for it, but only for middle aged to old men.  High school kids free of course.

Re: Magic Mountain Conditions

First off they dont have the money for any of that.  And even if they did it would be busy and tracked out.  Then it wouldn't be Magic.  I uploaded my own trip report from their uncomfortable slow double chair through my own data connection.  You would be better off at Stratton.  I've never been there but it sounds like your type of mountain.

OMG Gladerunner, I'm just joking.  If I want high speed lifts, I will go somewhere else.

Re: Magic Mountain Conditions

Hope everyone is staying warm out there! Skied Magic last Thursday (2/12) and the conditions are just ridiculously good. Magician from the top was all filled in and soft lines all the way down.  The ledges on Black are also filled in. Trees are all good, even where they've already ben skied. Not sure how it will fare with holiday traffic this weekend but I suspect the cold will keep many people (myself included) off the mountain. I hope to go back up on Monday and see what's leftover from the storm that's supposed to be starting right about now.

Re: Magic Mountain Conditions

Just bumping this up because we should have another solid weekend on tap at Magic.  We picked up 4-6" of snow during the week (ok, probably closer to 4) and there's more snow in the forecast for Sat/Sun.  The base is deep, the grooming is killer and I would not be surprised if there are still fresh lines in the woods somewhere.  Come have some fun!

Re: Magic Mountain Conditions

that's surprising, the chair was running beautifully when i was there two weeks ago. I'm no doctor, but I give it another 35 years or so.

Re: Magic Mountain Conditions

The info I got was that a hydraulic hose failed and needed to be replaced. Once they did that Red was running full speed again. Sucked for people that got stuck on it and had to sit in the cold while it crept along on backup power, but everyone got offloaded and the repair was relatively quick. Heading back up there today for some more great skiing!

STE and other sources implying that Magic is about to be sold.
