Default Beech's new improvements 12-1-13

First day out and you could not have asked for a prettier day! Bluebird skies and good snow. The grooming was pretty pebblely to start but they were snow pebbles and not ice so they were smoothed out pretty well by midmorning. The amount of coverage was very suprising, considering that is is only the first weekend, there were no thin spots anywhere. There were also at least a half dozen features (maybe more) set up in Powderbowl and they were nicely done. Props to Enton and the park crew. The lines were nonexistant in the morning, got in 12 runs before lunch!

The new improvements include the addtion of new guns, the removal of the Quad Barn and the adding of Club 5506 which will have draft beer, liquor and snack foods. Also the addtion of bathrooms at the top will be a big bonus! The grand opening will be next weekend.

I'll let the pictures tell the story.

Looks like they graded the unloading area to be downhill.... that should help lift stops....

The unload is much better this year we lost some space with the new 5506 but will be completely worth it. We had 7 features set up in lower part of PB and thanks for the shout out pink.

That looks really nice. I liked the barn too but I think it looks better now that I've seen some good pics. Thanks for the pics Pink. Hadn't been close enough to see it all.

Did they speed up the quad? Now that would be an improvement.
