The lift line at Silver Fir this morning was the longest I've seen this season.

Heard some good rumors this weekend:

Last weekend was the highest-grossing weekend in ski area history. (The entire industry is having a record year. Today at Lkae Tahoe, Squaw, Alpine meadows and Sugar Bowl all parked out and started turning customers away.)

A new Summit -> Ski Acres crossover trail will be cut next summer.

Lights will be installed on Fir this summer...!?

I'm hoping the mtn top lodge will happen sometime in the next couple yrs at Hyak. I know it will pack out no matter how big they make it.

Heard they will make a new crossover through the mountaineers that will come out near top of holiday, as well as do some clearing of mountaineers so that's more usable next year. Heard same thing about lights on Firs as well.

My inference is that the permits and plans are all done. All it takes is money and a few weeks of good weather.

Can you imagine Silver Fir Lodge on peak weekend Friday or Saturday night? It would be completely bananas.
