    If you are a paying customer, it is Russian Roulette as to whether they will be open on a particular day, and if they are, what will be open. Series of conflicting info on their website and FB page. FB page first stated Fri opening, then hyped lots of new trails opening in the PM. But website simply says no night skiing on Friday and 1 open trail but 0 open lifts. Who knows what happened this afternoon. I know lifts weren’t spinning this am and they refunded money.

    And when they are open, Fred is out there puzzling why more people haven’t shown up. SMH.

    There’s a post in the Community section of Timber-lies on Facebook that has more info about what happened today. The lady’s comments were, of course,deleted from Timberline’s page.

    Looks like they made the whales too big and didn’t know how/weren’t capable of pushing them out in time to open.

    No lifts spinning today even though the resort web site says it is open.

    Mebbe they are going for the ski touring area thing now to compeat with WG.

    No need for those pesky lifts that keep falling on the ground.

    HOLY COW
    I was just hearing a story of how a mountain ruined one of those units. Broke all the nozzles when they froze. Had to get new ones from Italy which took like two weeks.
