    • It has been quite sometime since the last update. The Saddleback saga continues. Back in March, a new group out of Boston, Arctaris Impact Fund Group came forward with an interest to buy Saddleback. Now they are closer in obtaining a purchase and sale agreement to buy the mountain. Their goal is to reopen Saddleback for the 2019-2020 season but is not a certainty. More details on the story can be found here on New England Ski Industry's page.   https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.newenglandskiindustry.com%2Fviewstory.php%3Fstoryid%3D776&h=AT0XMUQhavBt-fLgW-6E-dI6LldryJv1tTGxhCrmOFv0sO-cKSOkKLn0VHR5hjFu0TtHHE7_XxpAbygtm3V5AvI102XD6Vj-X-IAYtSmmQnrSyz_yddOL2fgbdP2&s=1
    • I asked Sommet Saint-Sauveur and it will be a mid-sized Uni terminal and with no loading or positioning carpet.
    • And the news is ..... drumroll.  If it rains more than 10 minutes at the water park you get a free ticket.  Nice offer but I’ll be honest in saying I was hoping for another new loft or a summit chalet. 
    • Saw this on their facebook page yesterday evening. It doesn't appear to be a media invited event, so I am not sure what it could be.... guess we will find out soon enough today.  
    • New video clip posted today on Facebook by Sommet Saint-Sauveur. It would seem like the carrier arms assembly is different than the typical North American Doppelmayr setup so we may see some European design elements. Would love to see the new lift be a Doppelmayr D-Line. As things start going up for the bottom terminal it will become obvious if it is D-Line or not. Or if we see some Grips.  3D7754F2-8CB1-4836-8961-6BD93B8B6C82.MOV
    • New photo posted today on Instagram by Sommet Saint-Sauveur. This time, the pouring of concrete for the summit terminal of the new six-pack lift.
    • @Shane yeah I didn't go the first year I heard about it either because it sounded more like a training camp, but last spring I messaged them and they said it was totally cool for me to come ski through the park, and just to be mindful in the park of other skiers/riders using the features. Last night there was another skier who showed up to do the same as me! Day 3 and 4 had me too beat to think about writing trip reports, so those are forthcoming today Also, with the lift or without, it's not a huge hike up as the park isn't all that long. Maybe a ten minute hike depending on how fast you are? I hiked it a few times last year when I didn't have the right gloves on the first day, and then learned how to use the rope tow, it was kind of fun! Albeit a little bit sketchy. Currently, it's really great to be able to watch all the participants from the chair.  For the waterslides, we didn't make it in time, but last year it is the one directly behind the wavepool where you carry up an inflatable and ride down on it. Not sure of the name, but I'm assuming they opened the same slide this year. Also the surf lessons were for "pre-inscrits" AKAMP participants so I'm not sure if that means the people who registered for the whole session or everyone taking part in a session. Either way, it's a huge bonus!
    • This just looks awesome. I always wanted to do the AKAMP, but the past editions looked a little intimidating to me, with hiking up, or rope tows. This year it looks more reasonable, especially with the chairlift and the flatter runout at the bottom of the slope. When the snow conditions are a bit choppy or soft like they would be end of June, makes for an easier time trying to stop when you have speed. Really nice setup this time around. I was also under the impression in the past that it was more of a training camp than just a summer snow jam for freestyle and casual skiing. Love the chairlift video too. Thanks for sharing. Seems like you are having a great time. I'm curious when you mention that there was free surfing lessons at the wave pool for AKAMP participants, and also access to the waterslides (which ones did they keep open for that)?
