I agree. Boulder, bear creek, and mountain creeks parks are light years ahead of both blue and camelbacks, just I feel blue is the worst around. I hate their grooming, their management, and neglect of facilities. It also took them till mid January to get their main park open despite a very cold start and other places being almost 100 percent

do they have good lifts at blue atleast? I went to plattekill and Belleayre the past 2 days, both are excellent mountains, but their facilities are wayyyyyyyyyy outdated plattekill only has a double and triple lift and takes forever to get up the mountain, Belleayre finally put in a Quad this past year from what people said, both are awesome mountains terrain parks were ok but when you have awesome trails, wooded areas and snow for 4-5 months of the year, i could care less about the terrain parks. I'm not trying to sound snobby about where i like to ride, but i've been riding for 12 years now and been almost everywhere thats good to ride in the US, and in the tri state area i'm pretty picky about where i go.

Yeah blue has a 6 person, i think a quad, then a couple 2 person shitters. Facilities are a little older but they have a fresh outdoor bar/grill which is nice then at the bottom lodge they have all these little huts outside which sell different shit. I love blue compared to all the other pa mountains i have been to, but im an all mountain guy and dont spend much time in the park

a 6 person? lol that just sounds like a recipe for disaster if you're going up with a bunch of rookies how big is the mountain is it like the size of camelback? a 6 person sounds so unneccessary for a mountain that isnt huge, kinda like the Cabrio at mountain creeks vernon peak it just takes more time with the lines and getting strapped up. I usually opt for the vernon triple if its open instead of taking the cabrio up but i usually go to south & bear peaks where its just 2 high speed quads. I've heard good things about elk mountain, anyone have an experience there?

Na its not that bad, i think its a high speed and moves pretty quick. I have never been to camelback but its looks about the same size.

I have to say, the park crue at blue mountain does a pretty good job. Some of their parks take a lot of abuse and it seems as though they really take the time to get the parks up and running as best as possible. I wont turn this into a pissing contest on which parks are better, I have not been to Camelback so I wont flame, but I have been to a few others, and I do like Blue better than those. My $0.02

I've been to Blue every saturday this month except one, going this Saturday as well. In my opinion, there has been very little ice at all. One thing I will say it it does go from groomed pack to "powder" so it throws me off sometimes. But overall their snow isn't bad. Its obviously fake and you can tell it is but I have not experienced much ice there at all this season. ::knock on wood::

Ok first off bear creek is beyond terrible. I bought a day pass and was there for literally an hour before I got bored and left. The trails are all extremely short and offer no challenge at all. The terrain park is half decent. Its made for rich people who want to ski and have a nice lodge.

Blue Mountain is by far the nicest place in the area. Best trails and the best terrain park and as for it always being icy, what place doesn't get icy once the sun goes down? I've been to a lot of places around here and Blue is by far the only one worth every penny.

if you went to bear creek to ride anything but park, then you are a fool.

blue is the iciest around, and thats a fact. i know many passholders that hate the grooming at blue. it has to do with their snow/water mix and lack of educated groomers.


jfbb rarely has any ice. elk does not, sno mountain, nope. even bear creek has less ice then blue. i want blue to be good, their trails and lifts are great, but between the ski patrol issuing tickets for going to fast ON A BLACK DIAMOND, shotty grooming, and short season, i just cant drop the kind of money they ask for a pass, especially when a half hour further at jfbb i can get a pass for half of what blue offers, and ride powder in the glades, open bounds policy, and impeccable grooming and snowmaking. (being open november - may doesnt hurt either)
