Word on the street was that a few people complained about long lines last weekend.  I am happy to wait 7 minutes for the Red Chair if someone keeps the red chair open.  Last weekend was a record MLK holiday.  Coming off of a record Christmas season , this is a nice accomplishment.  Mother nature has had her timing down this season so far!

The hill picked up 7-10” of some snow Tuesday with a little layer of crust, perfect for base building.  Some more of the natural stuff is supposed to fall tonight, which should allow us to forget about the snow snakes for a while!

For this weekend expect a groomed east side, Wizard groomed on the west side and the rest will be “au natural”.

For now, Save Magic brings you Guy Douchette’s “Mhistorya,” a quick bit of skiing and Magic history shot over MLK weekend.

The Christmas Holiday week started out with a nice big storm. Later in the week we got a premature taste of spring skiing.  All said and done paid skier visits were up 34% over the holiday week from last year.

We would like to thank everyone who is spreading the word about Magic and to provide you with a little taste our friend Guy Douchette brings you: Marry Me

Open The Cape

Opening weekend was a blast!  Each trail was groomed edge-to-edge and fully covered!  The surface was a blast to carve, and when we scratched it all up, they put magic back there for us Sunday!

On our last run down around 3:15, the crew was already hooking up hoses and placing fan guns.  The learning area is now covered and Showoff has a fresh batch of Magic Snow.  The crew will now focus their attention on Magic Carpet and Medium providing multiple routes down the Mountain.

So if you missed it we are happy to provide you with Guy Douchette’s first glimpse of the season.

Let’s Build A Snowcat

Filed Under (Mountain Updates, Movie Updates) by admin on 16-12-2010

It is Wednesday night December 15th and if all goes well I will be in line for the Red Chair on Saturday morning.  At least I know there is a great snowmaking crew out there that cares about making Magic even better.

We all know that snowmaking is no easy job. Long hours in the dark and cold, dangerous air pressure valves, and ungodly hours are a few of the elements that make up the job description. Our snowmakers had to build the cat and weld hundreds of holes before they could even think about getting a little frostbite.

Take a look at the pictures and you will see the fruits of all their hard work.  If the mountain opens as anticipated on Saturday, show up to show your support for the guys who busted their humps to make it happen for us.  Let’s give them the best opening day ever!  In the meantime let’s take a look back at this week last season and enjoy The Beauty.
