Very Merry Larry & Merry Mamaroneck

Very Merry Larry    Zach

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. I started off my ski day on Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift, where Legendary Lift Man, Larry Burnor likes to keep it merry – that’s how he rolls. Here he’s pictured brushing the snow off the chairs. Darn, if he’s not thoughtful too.

Later on I met up with my friends Jeff, Matt, Zach, and Andrew from Mamaroneck, NY. I’ve known J, M, and Z since they first came to the Resort 10 years ago. Zach was just a toddler when I first met him, now he’s almost a teenager and totally into snowboarding. Yesterday, he took lessons from SSU’s George Zavis and he graduated from Sir Henry’s to Lower Morse Liftline. He was linkin’ turns and lovin’ life (see photo above). As Jeff and I were getting on the Village Lift, I spotted another long time Smuggs Guest, Rob and his daughter Emily. It turns out that Rob and Jeff met each other at the Resort – Rob was born in Mamaroneck. It’s a Smuggs World after all.

Have a MERRY!


Ya never know… until ya go!

Snow SnakeRockin’ Ron for Hugh. By the time I hit the slopes it was more mixed precip than the white fluffy (aka clear snow in Snow Reporter parlance). After all these years, I don’t know why I was surprised that the trails were nice-n-creamy. I was also surprised when Sam the Snow Snake snuck up on me while I rode Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift! I was surprised because it’s not every day you see a reptile on a Lift Tower. BOO-HISSS!

P.S. Try saying “Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift” 5 times fast.


Uplifting Lifties


Feb 25, 2014 Larry Burnor 1Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. Our Lift Attendants (aka Lifties) are among the unsung heroes at the Resort. They raise the bar for us.They pick us up when we’re down.They take a load from us. Through it all, its hard to corral their enthusiasm. Larry Burnor (pictured here) has been working at Mogul Mouse’s Magic Lift for 19 years and at the Resort for about 30 years. He’s always ready with a friendly greeting or funny observation. So, let us raise a glass (and our safety bars when we get off the lift) to those who elevate us.
