Inside Scoop from Mt Ops Feb. 13

Steve Crowley - Thursday, February 13, 2014

“What would you think if I sang out of tune, Would you stand up and walk out on me?, Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song, And I’ll try not to sing out of key, Oh I get by with a little help from my friends, Mm I get high with a little help from my friends, Mm going to try with a little help from my friends.. “ (JL &PM 67)

We all enjoy a little help from our friends and no better way to spend time with friends than on Holiday Valley's 58 trails all covered in pearly “White” snow with a few moguls on Chute, Morning Star, and Falcon. “Yesterday” and a couple days before were mighty cold here but the weather has moderated now. So you will need a “Ticket to Ride” this weekend and right through next week as we open the lifts each day at 8:30 for the Presidents day holiday and week. Ski School Snow Sports has lessons available every day and if you are a very beginner “Help” is available at the Creek side lodge so you won’t be “The fool on the Hill” and can link your turns on the way down! Grooming has been hard at work all week and providing an outstanding surface each morning it’s really “Something” to behold, and tonight (Thursday) they will string up the winch cat on the Wall to give her a good grooming for the days ahead it’s going to be a “Hard days night” for those men for sure. Snowmaking is off on a world tour so we won’t have man made snow in the air but do have a little natural snow coming over the weekend good fun in the glades!   Terrain Parks aren’t exactly “Strawberry fields forever” but there will be shades of red and pink out there as we host the Boarding for Breast Cancer fund raiser in the Mardi Gras Rail Park on Saturday check our web site for more details. Pat and his crew have been changing up features in the 42/78 Foxfire park as well slide on over and check it out,

The Tubing Park is open with 24 lanes the ice rink (bring your own skates) little tubers area with shaped lanes and a fun roller, bonfire, hot chocolate, food, and fun out there . The Mountain Coaster up past the Tannenbaum Lodge is open daily to 8pm through Monday and an evening ride in the woods can be your “Magical mystery Tour”.  Have fun, get high on life, “Let it Be”, hit the slopes, I’ll see you out there!
