Has anyone been there? I race there but still 300 feet vertical drop and steep = SPEED!

Sure! I've been there! Last time was in 1966! My high school ski club used to do weekday afternoon bus trips to 'Big Blue'!

That's where Mark learned to ski, back in the days when there was enough snow. I think, but I'm not sure, that Jonathan S. takes his race team there.

Under the new management from Ragged Mtn, snowmaking has improved considerably. (Before they took over, I was almost ready to give up on the place -- the coverage was pathetic.)

The 320' vertical is much better than 240' Nashoba or Bradford (80' might not seem like much, but that's a full 1/3 bigger!), and the pitch is pretty decent (maybe lower expert, or upper intermediate) for about 10 slalom turns, although otherwise it's quite flat. If the MDC grants a longer-term lease, I think the infrastructure could be considerably improved and the Big Blue could finally start snatching metro skiers away from Nashoba, Bradford, and maybe even Wa-Wa-Wachusett.

It sure would be nice to see something interesting *be ready* for snow in the area, for
nothing else...but to divide the bombardment of
the southern NewEngland crowd...particularly on
the weekends.
