cigTore my acl on my backyard rail today... Looks like i won't be skiing this year... Again...
RparrHoly shit man, vibes. That's like the worst thing that could possibly happen. Didn't you do one last year? Buy hey, at bmbw's current snowmaking pace you might only miss a month or two
BrewskiJrAnyone else HATE how the GM Notes are only a gopro video?
Sometimes i dont want to sit and watch Josh for 5 minutes. I loved how they used to write a quick synopsis of whats going on. Makes it much easier when im checking it at work and want to see whats goin on.
Sidebar: sucks they have 0 snow still
Moon_ShoesWill they open before 2015?
BrewskiJrDrove by Sunday night and there were maybe 5-6 blotches of snow from the cannons - 90% of the hill was green though. If you go to the snow report, you can check out the SnowCams. Looks like theyre making MAD snow as all of buttermilk is covered finally (in a dusting at least).
Give it another week I would assume.
RparrBMills is opening thursday. I don't know if I'm even going. I live 5 minutes away but the lines will be abysmal since they're opening so late, and god knows if they'll even have a single feature up.
RparrPissed once again. I've been home for nearly a month. This is usually when I get most of my skiing in since I'm out of school and 5 min from bmbw. All I wanted to do was hit some jumps before I had to leave and go back to school. Those fuckers spent the whole day pushing out some jank jump yesterday. Then they decided to make it smaller because they kept kunckling it (they build it in a flat area, derp). There's a slopestyle today and the jump won't open until the slope comp. The slope comp is usasa, I'm not paying 120$ to take 2 runs. so they'll close off the park for 4 hours for the 10 people who paid out the ass to compete, and I won't get to hit anything because I have to leave town today.
I'm just butthurt that the park crew only threw up a jump for the incoming slope comp. They work like fucking molasses, and are collectively incompetent. Most mountains switch up their park every week. here at bwine we're lucky to get once a month. The setup they've had since opening is rutted out and stale.
Oh well, I'm about to spent the rest of my season at mad river. They are much better at building, maintaining, and switching up their park. They have 27 features up and a jump line already.
BrewskiJrDoes anyone know why all the trails aren't open yet? I have enough snow in my backyard to groom it. How can BMBW still have 4 trails closed? (i feel like i just come in here and rant haha)
iRide1080sOn mobile so not gonna quote everyone but I wanted to hop in the rant with brewski and rparr.
I agree with everything said about the new GM. I spoke with some guys I know who work there and it sounds like nobody can stand him. For employee training there was a sting operation in which he placed an empty bottle on a major walk way along with a camera. Am employee didn't pick up the bottle so the GM proceeded to berate him and show the video in front of everyone (just what I was told).
I can't seem to find any useful updates on the site about overall conditions and do they even have a section for the parks anymore?
And speaking of parks.. BM has one of the worst setups I've ever seen. Obviously BW has always had the primary Park but mills is beyond pathetic. A down rail at the top of pride has literally no take off. Meanwhile the flat rail at the bottom has a take off with a lip that's at least 6 inches higher than the top of the rail. And the jump has no transition... Just lip then sloping flat landing. A throwback to bmbw in the early 2000s.
jwvIs there a new park setup at brandywine? What did they change? I haven't been up since last weekend.
cigWhy can't they just build the jump line like they did last year? I haven't been up this year but it looks like shit
RparrIt is shit. The season is passing us by very quickly and they've still yet to build bigger than a 20 foot jump. I feel so stupid for investing so much into this season, the park has been garbage all year.
BrewskiJrAnd now that the ski clubs are done, who knows when they'll close. Probably will be pretty soon honestly. Which is even MORE reason why this place is a piece of sht. They open late cause they are afraid they wont make money, and close mad early cause they are afraid they wont make money. I get it, its a business, but there is no desire to invest in season passes anymore
RparrThey should really be open until the end of March. On an avg snowfall year they stay open until mid March. Given how late they opened this year and how much snow we have now, they'll really be shooting themselves in the foot of they close before the end of March. But I know im going to be sorely disappointed
BrewskiJrMan i really hope so. I was grabbin a beer last night at BM and the bartender said she could see it closing any day now htat the ski clubs have stopped. Such a scam man.
cigI've yet to hear a single good thing about bmbw all year. A friend of mine tried making some suggestions for the parks on Instagram and instead commenting back they just blocked him. Nobody there gives a fuck about season pass holders and park riders and thats a shame because its those people who truly care about the resort
Is the same person as last year in charge of the parks this year? We have had such a good winter this year there is no reason for that place to be sucking so much.
BrewskiJrThe website says "Last Friday Night and Last Saturday Night" with the college night and ladies night specials.. No idea if this means they are closing or if they are just doing the specials. This would be UNREAL if they shut down next week. Would be absolutely pathetic.
RparrI'm not seeing the winter carnival yet. That's when I start to worry.
willy_bHas anyone been to the park at Brandywine since they rebuilt it? From what I have seen it looks pretty decent
ColinBa2so i have some insider info on the closing date. who wants it?
