i remember talking to kalen back on the july 4th weekend. he told me they needed to have a certain amount of riders, to open the western territory lifts. i hope buisness can pick-up enough so that they run on a more regular basis. i'd leave w.rock more often and go ride there once a month or so. i don't know about hotel rates in other parts of the country, but rates(with specials) aren't bad there. the place is an east coast gold mine just waiting for "the rush"
