Took a peak at Magic's website. Looks like a pretty rad place with an old school, soul skiing monthly vibe. I will probably check it out next weekend.
I went last week for the first time and had a blast! Fun mountain and very similar vibe to plattekill. Thursday they have $29 lift tix. The motel was also very affordable. Can't beat it. They received 2" of fresh snow thru the morning , a few inches earlier in the week and since the mtn was not tracked out it skied great all day. They dropped ropes that morning and we were in the first few people to hit a bunch of trails - all day.
