    Is Polecat still open to hikers

    I heard somewhere (VFTT?) that under the new management, Polecat is no longer open to hikers. I was hoping to hike up it the day after Thanksgiving, so I had better be sure about this!

    I thought the trail was open as part of the agreement between management and the company managing the ski resort, but it is now under new management.

    Anyone have any word on this?

    Maybe!

    Thank you for the links. If anyone hikes up before Thanksgiving, please do let me know what you encounter.

    It sounds like we shouldn't have any problems.

    Note that they might close it (and other trails) for safety reasons if they're blasting the snow guns and have snow cats driving around. That really depends on the weather.
