    Classic! Unfortunately not much at all has changed around the mountain since then! Funny entrance by Steve Lee at 34:30ish and the follow up discussion of the snow board (as opposed to the snow ski).

    Even the inside of Zirky's looks the same.

    I noticed the RMB built a 'Zoo Cart Park' in Davenport near Trapdoor. Thought they might bring back one of the old trailers to life.....seems to be just a bocce court.

    Did I tell you that I tried to upload the video of installing the towers on Gotcha/Keohs/Orchard lifts? (and didn't succeed).

    Bets for which lifts turning, QBWE?
    Hard to know new owners thinking (and deal still not done!), but I'm thinking they wont open early... then for long weekend Big D, summit Roadrunner and village. They could also have Heavenly open if they could be arsed and weren't so tight - but maybe new owners will be breath of fresh air.

    The Moscow Villa hut at Bentley Plain in the Ensay/Omeo region has not , as far as I can ascertain , been damaged by fire, so far.

    CFA Fundraiser now stands at 47.5 K.

    That’s the kind of sum that starts making a difference when it comes to additional equipment etc.
