I know this has been talked about before with Bretton Woods being a relatively "mild" or "easy" ski area, but will the additional terrain and the prospect that it will most likely be more geared for the experienced/advanced skier/rider (and the new T-Bar that services it) be a draw?
__________ Fall Linen. Imaginary line following the most direct path down a slope that skiers continuously traverse on a run, often stopping at other invisible slope features along the way like the Tumble Lane, the Stagger Path and the Topple Zone.
I happen to like Bretton Woods. Not everythings about challenge to me. The fast crusiers and mild pitched glades and bumps along with the good snow that I've always experienced there are quite enjoyable. An absolute "must go" for families with smaller children. Nothing classier then the Mt Washington Hotel across the valley too.
Having skied 45+ years I of course love the idea of a T-bar. Not only for the cherished memories of T-bars past, but also for the lack of people it will put on those trails. Certainly wouldn't mind seeing the return of the T-bar and Poma.
This is awesome... but I bet there will be a lot of people who never rode a T-bar having problems especialy the snow boarders. I hope they don't regret teh decission. If you've ever watched the poma a Killington you'll know what I mean. Any one know what the verticle drop will be? What are the new Dopplemyer T-bars like? I assume recoilable string style?
May be a stupid question, but how do you get to the base of the t-bar? No trails seem to go there, and none of the ones off the top of the new lift are fed by anything off the other part of the area. Hmmm.
