“Grandmas sit in chairs and reminisce, Boys keep chasing girls to get a kiss, The cars keep going faster all the time, Bums still cry Hey buddy can you spare a dime, And the beat goes on, Drums keep pounding a rhythm ti the brain, La de da de de  La de da de da……..(S&C ’67) 

The skiing and riding are great, and the beat goes on. We’ll be adding Tannenbaum lift and trails Friday, Eagle and Chute are on tap for Saturday. The snow depth is above average and surface is still very much a packed power. We saw a little hardening of the surface on Wednesday mostly from moisture collecting through evaporation and freezing in overnight. Thursday morning saw a couple inches of fresh dry snow and the groomed underneath has softened some because of warmer temps overnight.

We’ll keep Cindy’s and Sunrise spinning until 9 PM Friday and Saturday nights for one last ski and ride under the lights! Terrain parks are looking good and the park crews are working hard every day to keep them in good shape. Check for the spring session to be held on Foxfire on April 13...Looking ahead to next week we will have 5 lifts operating and we plan to extend the season to April 14th. The beat goes on… get your shades and sunscreen on I’ll see you on the slopes!
