    What's everyone's thoughts on Pleasant Valley being open by August?

    Laughable?

    Unfortunately you need it to ski back to PV rather than the tube,
    tho I have skinned over to Interceptor when it's been on hold.

    Yer fair call too.
    Nice wide open flats , enough fall to let them run a little and work it all out.

    Here's hoping it is open by August. I think it's an awesome area to learn

    Yes. Not only the shrubs, but rocks, creeks and gullies everywhere. Very difficult going to try and walk down there. Looks so smooth and flat in winter!
