As the subject line says - anyone close to anyone who works at Beech? Are there any plans to open Southern Star, White Lightning, or (ha) Oz this year?

Not whining, just want to know - Sugar shouldn't be getting all my money, but it's hard to justify another half hour on the road for just Shawneehaw and Robbins Run. I assume Beech is trying to keep costs down after building the new lift - someone has probably worked out how much extra revenue the extra runs would generate versus how much they cost to maintain. And in Beech's defense, conditions havent been great... but its almost February, and they closed mid-Feb last year.
