“Anywhere you go, I’ll follow you down, Anyplace but those I know by heart, Anywhere you go, I’ll follow you down, I’ll follow you down, but not that far, … (GB ’96)
I can follow you down the Wall, we’ll be winching her up Friday night. Reports there today are it’s skiing well so it will only get better. The snowmakers got ahead of the groomers earlier this week as we had Jane and Pete out doing the morning slope inspections and coaching the crews. Great job guys and gal! Huge strides were made in getting all our trails open and with good snow surfaces. The grooming team was up for the challenge with all the new snow pushed out and tilled up. If you are looking for some natural skiing and riding, Shadows and Falcon will be your slope of the day or take a lap on our Cross Country trails . Moguls on Morning Star skier/rider right are in great form and the Chute will see moguls develop this weekend as well. Terrain Parks are growing each week. A few more features were added to Fiddlers Elbow and a sweet set of tables are on Foxfire. Mardi Gras Rail Park continues to be among the best. The Outpost, Riglet Park and Terrain Garden in the School Haus base area are just the ticket to introduce our youngest skiers and riders to terrain park skills and what a great picture spot as well!
The Tubing Park is open Thursday through Sunday with 2 lifts operating and 25 lanes plus the Li'l Tuber’s area. The Sky Flyer Mountain coaster at the base of Tannenbaum is open Thursday through Sunday and you can add a coaster ride to your lift ticket purchase or just stop up and buy tickets there. Safety Patrol will be cooking sausages at the Champagne Mountain Top Warming Hut both Saturday and Sunday so stop in for a sandwich, hot chocolate and a break. All kinds of biker action will take place at the Holiday Valley Lodge with Gowanda Harley Davidson bringing in the bikes for Harley Day Valley this Saturday.
It’s high time and mid-winter so get on out here. Just remember anywhere you go I may follow you down so “do not stop where you can’t be seen from above!” Know the skier/ riders responsibility code. (There will be a test!) I’ll see you on the slopes!!
