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.
