    I was there from 11 am to 6 pm on Sunday. I got a total of 7 runs in. That’s only a run an hour. I did take a 20 min break to eat something but it really didn’t impact my run total. If you think that each run only takes 3 mins ( at the most ) that’s only 21 mins of bike time. I don’t know about you, but I think that f’n sucks. Blue better get there shit together because people won’t pay to stand around!!! If any one from Blue is reading this you guys should think about running the south chair lift …….or at least 2 shuttles from the south side. There is no point in paying money for lift service if it’s going to be that slow!!!!! That being said the trails were in good shape and you can tell they are trying to make improvements. One suggestion…….anywhere that there is open space they should be making tables or 4X type burms and jumps. Keep the runs fun top to bottom.

    i do believe i heard someone come by and say he was sorry for the wait.. thus staying open till 6, also “DON’T GO ON DROPMACHINE AND TALK SHIT, WE ARE GOING TO SIT DOWN AND TRY AND DO SOMETHING ABOUT THE LIFT”

    I don’t care what this weekend was! If all the minds working for Blue couldn’t figure out that this weekend would be extra busy and they would need the shuttles to get more riders up an hour…….. to keep us PAYING customers happy, some of those people should be fired. I don’t understand how anyone could be happy with 7 runs a day. I don’t think I’m being a Sally, 21 mins or riding sucks! I’m just expressing my opinon on the lift service. Pete C if you’re happy with shitty service that’s fine…….but I’m not! And by the way Pete C, who are you calling Sally?

    I agree with T-12. It’s not like the long weekend comes out of no where – “OH MY GOD, LOOK AT ALL THESE PEOPLE!!! IS THIS A LONG WEEKEND OR SOMETHING WE DIDN”T KNOW ABOUT????” Did someone forget that this was their opening weekend and they would be super busy?

    When someone suggested starting up the shuttles the response from Chris was “We don’t think thats the solution.” IMO a temporary bandaid solution of running the shuttles is better than doing nothing.

    I hope they have some big plans for the O-Cup otherwise we should plan on a repeat performance of this past weekend.

    bahahhahah, Monday was THE best day ever man….no lift lines what so ever, I got at least 20 runs….sometimes when you came down form the run there was nobody and you could ride your bike rite to the gondola…..

    the benefits of living in C-wood 😀
    And NO it didnt rain one drop. Right when we were loading the bikes onto the truck is when it started pouring and this was at like 5:20

    I have consulted with Blue regarding lifts, we will be running the gondola and two trucks with trailers, this will give a lift capacity of over 200 people per hour, sound slike they could have used it this weekend

    Blue was hella fun….the long lines were kind of a downer but it was opening weekend and stuff like that has to be expected. I don’t think my hands/forearms could have handled run after run with no rest between so I can’t really complain about the long wait as it gave me time to recover 😳

    I met a few DMer’s too and had a blast overall

    The accommodations were AWESOME and very entertaining….thanx again OWDLVR

    Actually, I wanted to punch out the internet personality that is Barnes. I heard the real-life Barnes is okay.
