I'm going to Blue Knob on Monday, noticed they closed 4 out of 6 Double Blacks today, anyone know what the conditions are like at the mountain?

Odds are that Extrovert is othing but little bumps surrounded by big, wide, icy, rock filled ruts.  The time I saw it open (barely open0pun intended) it was lots of little bumps  surrounded by little, narrow, icy, somewhat rock filled ruts.  Heckuva  ride.  Highly recommended very difficult terrain regardless of the condition it is in assuming they are letting folks ski on it when you get there.  They might have closed to to either set up snow guns or groom it.  I thing they need to winch the snow cat up that to groom.

Snow cat? I always thought they used a Zamboni to groom that place!

Upper and Lower Extrovert are the only Doubles open right now so I'll make sure to hit them.

 The bumps on Extrovert will not be tiny and the ruts will not be rock strewn. Extrovert will not be groomed.

Never having been there am I to take that literally or sarcastically?

 I was just trying to get you stoked. I haven't been there recently, but I don't think they groom that run. Based on pics in LaurelHillCrazie's trip report, I don't think there will be bare spots or rocks on Extrovert. Based on the warm temps this weekend, I'm guessing big bumps, but I don't know. Have fun, let us know how it was.
