I was recently asked if we would consider keeping the Upper Mountain open for skiing having guests download Black Mountain Express at the end of the ski day. The answer is, yes we would consider that. In fact, we seriously discussed doing it this year. For this year specifically, High Noon is holding out just about as well as the Upper Mountain and closing both lifts at the same time seemed to make sense. Now each year the snow falls, blows, moves around, and melts a little differently. Will there eventually be a scenario and a season that we download guests on BMX. That answer to that is, almost certainly yes. When, why, and how is hard to predict, but I am fairly certainly that there will be a time when it makes sense to download.
On another note, we are having a beautiful ski day. Check out the sky color. It almost looks "doctored" in this photo.
