Likewise! It's funny how with the lifts turned off the place takes on a whole different feel!

Errr, different feel as in "The Shining"? With all that abandoned equipment and lodges open, felt kinda surreal.

I was thinking that it feels more like an outdoor experience than a resort experience but now that you mention it the empty facilities aspect is a bit weird. Perfect for an 80's style horror movie where each skier is picked off by a crazy hermit lift operator. shocked shocked shocked

call the mountaineer in Keene valley ask for Yon the BC ski guy. Yon sp? rips it up and will know, but my guess it's all done unless you want to hike to the top of Algonquin.

Yep, my current hiking forays are all about scouting out possible routes, slopes, glades. But, all in good time, we've got half the summer, and a fall season to enjoy as well. RC
