Rumor mill churning...

Lights on Silver Fir are a definite GO this summer. They will install metal induction lamps, which are claimed to give the best light. This is going to be really fun.

I'm also hearing that the Summit will dip its toe back into mountain biking this summer, by building a skills park, presumably at Ski Acres. I know the Summit wants a "two season" resort, but they swore on a stack of bibles they'd never let another bike tire on their hill after their first foray failed. We'll see.

This is the last week for midweek skiing.

Acres closing weekend is April 15/16.

Sounds like they will try to keep the bikes down low instead of focusing on downhill riding? Someone built a 'skills' course just off Silver Fir a few years ago using part of the crossover bridges. Wasn't very big. I'm still waiting for a zipline!

MTB park?

Good question, Jack.

I don't see how they can keep the bikes down low if they use the CX or Fir chairs to lift them, though. Maybe they'll use the existing skate park area, and use that big trail that bends to skier's right to get the jibbers around Banana Face to the lower part with the jump lines...?
