Each season writes it’s own story, and this season certainly has! However, each one always shares a few of the same chapters every year. First, there is the big push to get the lifts spinning and guests on the mountain, expand our operations one by one, open additional terrain and get through the Christmas holiday. Next comes the meat of the season in January and February. This is usually characterized by good skiing/riding with consistent in-State visitation and a couple of challenging holidays. The next storyline shows up in March with a lot of out of State visitors who may or may not have visited our mountain before. This year we also got walloped with two major storms during this timeframe adding some other hurdles to clear. We are now wrapping up our Spring Break period, the coverage on the mountain is good, and the weather is beautiful. These next few weeks look to bring some chances of snow but a lot of Bluebird days. Time to soak it up and enjoy what we have all worked so hard to pull off this season. It really has taken all of us working together to come this far. Hope to see you on the slopes. Enjoy!
