“Some say love, it’s like a river, That drowns the tender reed, Some say love, it’s a razor, That leaves your soul to bleed, Some say love, it is a hunger, An endless, aching need, I say Love, it is a flower, And you, it’s only seed…Just remember, in the winter, Far beneath the bitter snows, Lies a seed, that with the sun’s love, In the spring becomes the rose.” (BM’79)
Not quite time for spring flowers, however we have had some warmth and sunshine this week. The Snow pack is holding well and those peaky tables in the Chute mogul field have been removed to let all those moguls grow. Our park crew and grooming crew have been hard at work this week setting up for the Eastern Freestyle B champs for next week and weekend. Foxfire has seen some major transformation as the large aerial site has been formed and the slopestyle line is being added. Yodeler slope is being prepped for the mogul competition as well. The eastern half (skier/riders right) is set aside for this, and the west side is groomed out and in great shape for everyone. This weekend is our annual Winter Carnival. The snow making crew has shaped up a good looking snow bar at the base of Yodeler. The venue raises funds for local youth groups, so stop by and say hi to the crew. Check the schedule on our web site for all the fun events at Carnival. The Maple sap has started it’s run and sugaring season is upon us. This means the glade and tree skiing will be ending soon. We do have all lifts operating this weekend and 55+ trails, the Tubing Park, and Sky Flyer Coaster open as well. Come on out, meet your friends on the slopes and enjoy the start of spring skiing and riding, I’ll see you on the slopes.
