Website now says opening this Sat!!!! Wow what a difference a couple of days make.
Hey, thanks for pointing out the updated info!
From their web page: "...We anticipate opening Saturday, December 6, 2003 with Velvet and the U-Me Double Chair, with the possibility of having Snowpark and the Easy Rider Quad as well!"
I know that their announcement really should be taken as a "It's REALLY coming" notice, and I know that they have to start somewhere, but every one of the runs and chairs that were mentioned are never-ever and pure green territory, so its kinda hard to get all that excited about it.
I suspect they really are opening mostly for the sake of publicity, to shake out the bugs in all of their departments, systems, and new employees, to have low level territory available for all the rookie instructors to take their on-snow training, etc. Personally, I wish they would act just a tiny bit more like Canaan V (or is it Timberline?) and build up a durable base of at least some depth before they let the hoards on it. OTOH, there never is all that much wear from traffic on greens, so maybe its no big deal.
Not withstanding my kveching above, I'll still probably head up next week since I am Jones'ing so bad (and I'm sure they know it - grin).
