Morning Has Broken

Apr 20, 2014 Easter Sunrise Mick Apr 20, 2014 Easter Sunrise Lift down

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. An Easter Sunrise Service was held atop Sterling Mountain today. The Mountain Ops crew got here extra early to load the Lift at 6:00 am. A beautiful sunrise over Madonna Mountain greeted everyone with a yellow hello. Karen Boushie from Smuggs PR handed out pamphlets with the service and song lyrics. Pastor Mick Comstock of the 2nd Congregational Church of Jeffersonville then delivered the service. Sara Lourie played accordion and the crowd sang along to “Morning Has Broken” and “Amazing Grace”. After the service, skiers, riders, and hikers proceeded down the mountain. Other folks rode the Sterling Lift back to the Base. To those who celebrate it – Happy Easter!

Morning has broken like the first morning.

Here is a nice message  I received on Monday, April 21st:  I am new to Vermont and felt this was something my husband and I really needed to do. It was absolutely incredible. We are over sixty non-skiers and being so out there on the chair lift was stunning. I will have the image of the mountains as we rode back down etched in my memory til I die.  – MK

Rockin' Ron

    For anyone else reading this blog…I’ve got to tell you that Smuggs ROCKS! I started skiing at 47…so if someone tells you that you’re too old to do something…come to Smuggs and prove them WRONG! Start enjoying the outdoors especially in the winter at Smugglers Notch!
