    Is it just me, but I really like these small ski areas that still look the way they did when they first opened.

    Skied Bluewood today, seems like a pretty cool place!

    I was surprised to learn that that they are only using about 400 acres of their lease from the forest service, which in total is about 1700 acres.

    Appearently they want to replace Skyline Express with either a fixed grip or high speed quad. Based on it’s length and the topography (it’s a lot steeper and longer than it initially appears), I think a high speed quad would be the way to go.

    I also heard they were thinking of putting a lift up Vintner’s Ridge.

    While Skyline Express hasn’t become dangerous like the lift at Timberline, WV, the 1978 Borvig is showing it’s age. It has peeled paint on pretty much every chair, tower, and crossarm, and hanger, and the diesel engine at the bottom of the lift is probably the loudest lift motor I’ve ever heard. The wooden backrests are also banged up and have little to no paint left.
