Sugarloaf just opened up a sugar shack like the one at Sunday River. Must say I like the more classic style of the one at SR compared to the one at SL

Funny,
I heard the SL Sugarshack was an opportunity to get a kiss on from Rippy for a $1.
Nice. Will be hitting Gifford on Friday. I have been thinking about the pothole sundae for months....

Good stuff!!!
The Gifford ice cream store in Auburn always has a line around the building during the opening week; no matter the weather!!

Last year we went to SL the Friday before April break (that was fun!) - earlier trek needed this year as I'm not sure what conditions will be like on April 16th!!

Have fun MB!
No sweets for you 'till after Easter, mister!

wow - good to know; thanks for the update. I may delay my trip to PA on the 16th and do an annual trip to SL

Are you kidding ??? Trust me the mountain is buried....literally no bare spots. This weekend was great high speed cruising...fast and firm.

I was up at the Loaf this weekend. The ice cream with maple syrup was really good. I wanted to go for seconds but didn't want to deprive the other kids in line.=) I was going to get a bottle of their maple syrup. Not knocking or anything but the maple syrup they were selling at SR seemed cheaper.=(
The SL sugar shack is built to look just like their new lift shacks (and curiously was built directly on top of a major water connection).
Now if they can just put some new siding on the base area buildings and drag them into this century....

FYI - Latest rumors are that Boyne may be replacing the Spillway doubles with a used quad which is becoming available due to a replacment 6-pack being installed over at Hunter in NY.
Alsp potentially cutting a major new glade on the side towards Burnt Mtn. (a la Casablanca @ SB)
No new lifts they b****
New lift they b****

There is a no win mentality with some of them

Hey now.....don't be spreading rumors !! They'll be lots of concern about potentially doubling the skier traffic on some of those central mountain trails with a quad chair, but the Burnt Mt development will be pretty exciting if it happens.
Ripsaw,
Great points; but, you've got to step back and take into consideration Mtn Economics...without skier traffic, the Mountain (a potentially VERY profittable venture) loses profitability, and I reeeeally doubt the IRS/SEC is going to allow Boyne to label SL as a not-for-profit. It's an addition/subtraction sorta thing, wouldn't expect many to understand ;)
My dad can beat up your dad.

You've got to step back and take into consideration Mt Economics. The $64 million dollar question is will more uphill capacity in the central mountain area actually increase skier visits (which is what you're implying could happen) or will it merely allow the same number of skiers to spread out more. Increasing the caoacity doesn't mean more people will come. The safety issue is will the same skiers that are now falling all over Chicken Pitch on Tote Road, now decide that they can fall all over Bubblecuffer because it's easier to get there.
