Thumbs up Mt Snow - 12/18 report

I went there yesterday, and I must say the conditions were pretty good.
Overall a much better experience than Stratton last week end.

Their new 6 chair bubble lift is nice, but getting off at the top is a bit tricky, especially if you're in the rightmost seat. You have very little space for 6 people when you get off and it also stops almost completely so you have no momentum. This led to a bunch of people falling, and the thing stopping all the time. Between that and the long lines, it was not worth it in the morning but great in the afternoon.
I think it'll be much better once they work out the kinks.
Meanwhile there was no line at the canyon express and that was awesome.

They also had some free demos from Burton, Forum and NS and I got to try a few boards (the Proto CT lived up to the forum hype).

What trails were open and how was Carinthia looking? Props on the report. Let's hope for a late Dec dump!

Not sure, I don't really do park and did not go to Carinthia.
As for the trails it's all here:

Nice! I went there on the first day they opened. The 6 person lift seemed to cut down on lines pretty well, didnt have any problems unloading but I was never on a full chair.
