Beech Mountains conditions were horrible today they did not warn people of how terrible it was, they sucked people in on the website saying how great the snow was but failed to mention every single blower was cranking, wind was blowing 50 mph, and visibility was 0 ft. It wasn't even rideable. They remove all posts on facebook warning people of these conditions.

Kenny posted this yesterday



Saturday: Snow showers, mainly before 5pm. Patchy fog before 2pm. Temperature falling to around 7 by 5pm. Wind chill values as low as -16. Windy, with a northwest wind 16 to 19 mph increasing to between 27 and 30 mph. Winds could gust as high as 47 mph. Chance of precipitation is 80%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible



If you were able to walk to the ticket booth, then you would have seen the puking snow and heard the guns and felt the wind. Either you are an alias yanking our chain or from FLA.

Plenty of non-deleted complaints on their FB page like this one:



"Mary Catherine Harris

I said it before and ill say it again, don't waste your time and money. All blowers are on, wind at 50mps, visibility at 0. Conditions are horrible, staff won't tell you that on the website so I'm telling you, and they will not refund you anything at all.

Like � � 8 hours ago � "



A simple look at the weather forecast would have told you how rough it was going to be. I can't believe all the complaints about the guns being on.

Thanks for all the comments Dudes and Bros. By your responses sounds like you guys combined might have an IQ of a fifth grader.The wind may have been blowing your guys single wide trailers around this morning but at my house it wasn't windy. You guys should stick to being ****** bags, and not weather forecasters.
