ITS GOING TO REOPEN - WHAT MORE IS THERE?
WINTER ISN'T COMING SOON ENOUGH
In my last review, I lamented the fact that this hill was closed, for sale and the victim of local politics and general infighting. Word is now out that Blackjack will reopen under new management, with plans to improve the aging facility, runs, etc. All I can say is - lets give it a chance! I look forward to changes, even if it takes a bit of time, since lots of the facility was neglected over the years and it won't all come back to life in one season. For a buyer to come in when the economy is still down and take a chance to reopen a truley fun hill, well, lets give that buyer the benefit of the doubt, take some turns spending money here (as well as other hills in the area) and be glad that good ski hills are still available in Bessemer. To the buyer - a huge thank you from a skiier who started on this hill in 1982. My children love the hill too, so a 2nd generation is on the slopes and looking forward to the grand reopening. Thank you and best of luck to you. And winter STILL isn't coming soon enough!! LOL
