Observations:- Snowguns were running all day at key intersections: the kind of snowmaking one would expect in November and December, but not March.- Glacier on Superstar: Seemed smaller than last year. Hope this doesn't mean an early closing.- Expansion for 2018-9 Season: --- Apparently the Bear Mtn. Lodge was another pot of money than the $16M announcement.--- The "new" South Ridge Chair will be the old Snowden Quad.--- With the removal of the Upper Snowden Poma and the changing of the Snowden Quad to a 6-pack will increase skier traffic on Snowden by about 15% with no increase in downhill routes. --- With the poma moved to Ramshead, the racing on Bunny Buster will be gone and will make an extra blue-square trail available to the general publicThose two statements don't agree with each other.

I figure the Poma was worth at least 1.5 seats. So with the Triple/Quad/Poma there was effectively 8.5 seats dumping off at the summit. Now with the Sixpack and Triple it will be 9. An increase of 5.9% ?? I think with the re-grading, tunnels & bridges, acreage gained from the Poma, things will flow much better on Snowdon, and with a better lift ride to boot. Yep, expect it to see more skier-miles laid down with the reduced lap times...So the amount of people on the hill at any one time may not increase much, the amount of times that said skiers can lap the hill will increase.
The triple will also probably run less.
