First Impression

A wall of dead trees. That’s what you have seen over the last few seasons driving into our parking lot. In this zone located in between our entrance and exit, there were numerous dead standing Engelmann spruce trees. The Patrol Summer Crew (aka Saw Team Six) worked diligently this spring to remove dead standing trees from this polygon adjacent to our entrance and exit roads. These trees were felled and then skidded over snow with long choker cables up and into our parking lot. These trees will be a part of the timber sale that contractors will further process and haul away later this summer. Things are looking much more green in this area as you roll into the ski area. You never get a second chance to make a first impression.
