Misty Mountain

Dec, 31, 2013Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. Like Gandalf, our Snowmakers are wizards. Their magic potion is the white powder we ski and ride on. This is a view of today’s snowmaking on Sterling Mountain from the Midway trail which traverses Morse and Madonna Mountains. The picture was taken near the snowmaking reservoir (which our summer guests known as Rumrunner’s Hideaway). Although it was a tad nippy and the conditions were fast, I still had to take a few runs. You might say I enjoy skiing so much that I can’t kick the hobbit.

P.S. For you J.R.R. Tolkien fans, we also have a gladed trail on Madonna called the Shire.
