We received 2 inches of new snow last night and it changed the snow surface. The groomed trails were fantastic with the fresh snow on top of the corduroy.  The groomed trails will be very nice again with the new snow mixed in with the existing snow. The new snow also allowed us to open Hangman’s and parts of Upper Exhibition.

Tomorrow’s forecast is calling for cloudy skies with flurries and a snow shower with an inch of accumulation possible and temperatures between 26 and 38 degrees.

Today was very pleasant with partly sunny skies in the morning and a few flurries in the afternoon.

Today was the last day that Mogul Mouse Magic Lift will be operating this season, so I took a few lift rides for good measure.  I got off at mid-station on my first run. I thought that I had put my phone in my inside pocket but, I missed the pocket and my phone slid down inside my jacket. When I stood up at mid station and skied away my phone stayed on the chair.  My phone stayed on the chair for a little while longer, before falling off above where Snow Snake cuts under the Mogul Mouse Magic Lift.  I

was unaware that my phone was missing and skied down the Magic Learning Trail, before heading back to my office.  I then realized that my phone was missing and I headed back to the Mogul Mouse Lift.  Lift Attendant Jeff stopped me and told me that Elizabeth who was working mid-station saw my phone fall somewhere near tower 15.  I headed back up the lift and was able to find my phone.  I want to thank our Lift Attendants and Lift Maintenance staff for their help in finding my phone it is greatly appreciated.  What was really cool was when I rode the Mogul Mouse Magic Lift again later in the day every lift attendant asked to make sure that I got my phone back. #smuggslove
