i wanted to try this place out too. my friends go there exclusively because they love the park. i looked online and the park does look pretty sick. they have 3d modeled vids of the park features and a vid of the halfpipe.
kinda scared that id get there and there would be some problem with the park because of the lack of snow like not many features, parts of it closed, etc...
Went last weekend for a day. Sidewinder parks were closed. Not as in no features were built, there is 0 coverage on those trails. Not many hits to be had. Comearound and Central parks were opened. Central's first jump is worthless because of the way it's setup, you can't get speed to clear the knuckle unless it's frozen hardpack. Overall, though, it's not bad considering what they've been working with this season.
I decided to bag it for this Sunday. Just got two days of rain and now below freezing temps so it has the making for an ice rink. They should be able to blow snow for at least three days straight but don't think that it will be enough. Looks like at this point ill have to wait till February.
I was up last Wednesday and they were blowing hard all morning so it made for solid conditions. A few connectors were icy, but that was the worst of it. Still some trails without full coverage. The first half of the lift ride you felt like you were in a winter wonderland with how much they were blowing. The second half was the complete opposite. You were wondering why you had a snowboard strapped to your feet because it was all dirt and rocks below you. The rain this week is probably going to kill it, but I'll still go.
I thought the conditions were Ok at Blue at the moment. Moguls and ice formed in the afternoon in the black diamonds and that was crap. I went the day it snowed, and it was nicer. Just wait for snow to come.
i was there last friday and it was ice galore. the sides of the trails had some powder on it though. overall it was pretty icey but ya, alot of trails were open
not a good season for blue mountain right now
i went there on sund and mon and i thought conditions were great considering. MUCH better than Mtn Creek which is my only frame of reference this season. blue has a good base. park was ok too i thought. pa vibe is so much better than jersey vibe too. i miss that...
What is the jersey vibe like? I rode MT Creek like 10 years ago and i don't remember a vibe just that it was crazy crowded. the reason i ask is because i was thinking about going there in the next two weeks to me a friend who lives in Jersey City
