The thermometer couldn't show much red on the 22nd of January, but the bluebird express kept us warm on the 7 minute ride up the breezy mountainside. The domed 6 passenger high speed lift keeps the elements away from you, and conversing or opening up a map is a breeze. The single digit temps kept my Niece and I off the other lifts most of the time, except when necessary to visit the other sides of the mountain. The groomers did their job before the 4 inches of light fluffy powder coated the mountain, and it was as good as it gets here in the Northeast. The traffic inside was light as well on this Tuesday, and the pizza man was entertaining and a pleasure to do business with. Most of the mountain was open, and ALL that was open was great. I'll be back !!
