    I have been in Salters many times, a lot of history went up in flames in the fire. I do recall one of the very few pairs of Kastenger Porsche Design boots were on display. I would be very suprised if it was an error in the shop, theback shop there was the cleanest and most organized backshop I have ever seen.

    In my opinion, Elk pulled the nose up on the weekend beautifully - All my friends were b*tchin' and moaning about how the conditions were going to be Friday morning but the mountain team really did a nice job getting the place in shape. It skied super well for getting all that rain/snow mix Thursday - hard and fast, but with good bite. We had a blast on Saturday too, nice crowd but nothing crazy. No Sunday stop for us this year, as everyone was definitely was worked over by two long days on the mountains (and the shenanigans that followed after).

    Skied Elk Friday night and last night. Got to agree Elk does a great job taking care of the hill. Think Friday night skied better than last night. The best snow on the hill was on Tioga last night and Susquehanna Friday

    I will be at Blue Mtn tomorrow if anyone is around. Look for the old guy on the Head Rally Skis and blue Technica boots. I will check in the morning if anyone replied and look for them at Blue.

    Camelback finally at 100%. A little help from mother nature Tuesday. Hopefully in for a good run to the end of the season. Looking forward to Thursday (if its not too cold) and the weekend which looks good from this far out

    Agree on the Elk comments...I skied it last Tuesday on a school snow day...and it was in great shape...they really have done a nice job despite the rain/freeze events we’ve been having.

    If school is out tomorrow...I’ll be up there again...Halfway House lunch/beers.

    Elk skied great again this morning.....light snow did wonders for the top surface. Should be good this afternoon/night for @Scrundy.

    I skied Blue Mtn today and it was in great shape. Only saw two trails that were closed. We had flurries all day and when I cleaned off the truck to go home at three it was about one inch of snow on the hood. Of course they blew snow all day on all trails.

    Great night at Elk! Skied from 6:00 pm till almost last chair. Grabbed me a wing man, there was some poaching going on. He is one of “them” ( snow boarder) but keeps beer in his backpack , go figure.

    Them 95s came in handy as everything was pretty tore up. Snow was heavier then I would of liked but great great base snow. Skied the blue and green mostly because the blacks were bumping up pretty good and didn’t feel like skiing bumps all night. Made a couple runs on both just to get the feel again. Wish they let something bump up for us night skiers.

    Up coming weekend sounds awesome. Good snow, 100 % open and decent weather. Thinking 1st tracks maybe in order as I expect it to be busy. Web cam shots indicate to me that Asp may be bumped up. Getting stoked.

    Fun day at Camelback today. 4 hours from 830 - 1230. Busy but not over run. Good conditions, Asp had bumps, Marjies had whales and everything skied well. Even got a first run on Pharaoh as they opened it close to 10 am. Got to ski with a friend who we used to ski with when our kids were on the race team and had a good time. Will hit it again tomorrow.

    Camelback good again today. So much better when the whole mountain is open, going end to end. BTW sorry Elk and Blue guys but IMO Nile Mile by far the best cruiser in the Pocono's. No pics today too much skiingogsmile

    Looked for you yesterday @4aprice -- we never focused on one part of the mountain. Kept waiting for the crowd at the base of Stevenson to die down -- we skied 9 - 5 and it was a wait every time we hit it! Surprised they're not running the Raceway lift.

    Anyway, I agree, Camelback was good yesterday -- great that it's 100% open. We'll be up again this Sunday.

    PS. College has broken up the kid gang this year -- anyone out there with some 13 - 16 yo teens, I got one that could use some ski buddies lol

    Couldn't resist. Lite work day, had to head back up to the mountain and enjoy the good conditions.
