Inside Scoop from Mountain Ops Feb 27

Steve Crowley - Thursday, February 27, 2014

    “ I really can’t stay, But baby it’s cold outside, I’ve got to go away, But baby it’s cold outside, This evening has been, Been hoping that you’d drop in, So very nice, I’ll hold your hands, They’re just like ice, My mother will start to worry, Beautiful what’s your hurry? My father will be pacing the floor, listen to the fireplace roar, So really I’d better scurry, Beautiful please don’t hurry….” (FL ’49) 

Ah yeah it’s been a little chilly around here this week but we do have some moderating weather coming in for the weekend. Good news is the snow is outstanding and we have all trails, parks, mogul fields, cross country, tubing hill, and Mountain Coaster open this weekend. I may sound like an old broken record but the conditions can’t be beat. Snowmakers ran the system overnights this week to prepare sculpture piles for our Winter Carnival held March 8th  and 9th. They also were able to get a good run in on the Wall slope and it  is skiing and riding great au natural!

We are hosting NSSRA U14 State champs concluding the weekend with a Slalom race at Edelweiss on Sunday. Pat has put together a “Red Bull 1976 games” event to be held Saturday evening on Moonshadow with a big old Red Bull truck cranking out tunes at the bottom of the boardercross course. It will be a great competition to enter or just slide on by to check out the scene.

We have roaring fireplaces in the lodges to warm up those icy hands and also will be hosting our annual passholder cookout at Mistletoe slope Sunday 11 am. It does appear that March is going to roar in like a lion so winter will, keep on keeping on, come on out and enjoy, check our website for all the details and… I’ll see you on the slopes.
