I've tentatively penciled-in a day trip to Massanutten on Friday, Jan 5, weather dependent, in case anyone wants to join me. I'll revisit this post & thread a few days before the 5th to reevaluate conditions and interest.

Looks like just a tick under 5 hours for me. I'll keep it on my radar.

You bringing the 70s gear or the 90s gear? :duck:
I skied 80s gear through the 90s. 70s/80s gear only comes out to play after February. All regular season skis are Y2K compatible (barely)

Sort of a conflict has arisen. Wish we could push this up to Jan 2nd or 3rd. My ski buddy co pilot flies back to Oklahoma on the 4th. I'll hit Appalachian with him then otherwise. Not sure I'm up for BOTH :huh:

after my experience last year on Jan 2, I'm not going anywhere near a ski area that day. Too many people still off from school/work

Ya last year we didn't stay more than 90 minutes on the 2nd, 3rd is a Wednesday, probably much better. 5th is a Friday.. 3 day weekenders. 4th I gotta take the kid to the airport.

My knowledge of Massanutten is about ten years old, several years before some of the nice improvements I saw today, new trails, new mid-mtn lodge. But the chair (6) serving the best terrain used to always be lightly utilized even on crowded days. I wonder if that was the case last year and could be the case on Jan 2?
