Like a Lion

It seemed like winter would never show up in late November and early December. However, there is no doubt that it has now arrived. This week has been something special and it’s not over yet. The skiing/riding conditions right now are prime mid-winter stuff. Pretty amazing considering where we were at a week ago.

While all of this new snow has been a much welcomed site (43″ in a week…and counting), the wind has been a challenge. I don’t remember ever having this many days in a week of only being able to run Garfield and Panorama due to high winds. Especially from the day’s opening bell. Thanks to everyone out there that was happy to ride just a couple of classic double chairs and slay the terrain that we had open.

Trust me, we would love to be running all of our lifts during the busy holiday period. Tomorrow looks to bring some similar wind challenges. 2021 is definitely going out like a lion.
