new water line from main pumphouse to the pumphouse at the lake at the bottom of chair 4. new variable speed compressors at the pumphouse at chair 4. new air pipes along trojan and zeus (ehich also services herc). two new tower fam guns. and contractig ratnik (the company who made those new double barrel portable towers last year) on an all-around snowmaking improvement maste plan touching cost/benefit of everything from adding pumps and compressors (thats why the new pumphouse is so big) to replacing/moving/reorienting pipe, adding electrical for more fans, new valves, hydrants, and guns, etc...basically something that should have been done 10 years ago before thinking of adding the hotel.
greek owns partial rights to the water impounded at hope lake. but town of virgil is paranoid that if greek withdraws it fully, not enlugh will fill up in summer for their beach. thats hogwash as itll fill in a couple of rain storms if there was no natural snow. greek really needs to get on that. they can release the water right into the creek at the base to pump up the mtn
Went to their craft fair a few weekends ago. Had lunch at outside grill. Chicken tasted like it was cooked hours prior. Burnt and dry. Heard head chef Anthony is gone. Will be bringing lunch all winter if that chicken sandwich was any indication of things to come. No more gore-met chili. ..
Yea..if they are smart, they'll remodel old gondola building at the summit for rest area and food. Saddle Lodge needs long over due updating. If they want to be respected as a big mtn, they need to update their amenities.
The water park, zip lines, and coaster are only fun for people 10 and under. Mountain biking would bring more people to hopefully visit Trax. It doesn't make sense to open the chairlift for just rides and hikers. Greeks layout would be perfect for mountain biking. Small investment for good return if done right.
