Rockin’ Ron for Hugh.
100% of our trails are open! Today’s forecast is sunny to partly sunny skies with temps of 34-47 degrees. So, it will be a great day for some spring skiing and riding, if you’re wearing a tutu, a kilt, or just unadorned snow pants.

Another beautiful day

Skiers on Upper Drifter

Today started off a little cool, but that did not last long with the wonderful sunshine. I ventured on all 3 mountains today exploring the woods and also enjoying the groomed terrain.  Upper Drifter was groomed last night and is skiing very nicely. I like to stop at different spots when I’m on Upper Drifter just to take in the fantastic views.  As I was skiing by Shuttle I noticed that too had been groomed recently. I took a left and made a few GS turns before letting my skis run.  The smooth surface made the dip easy to manage and was able to carry my speed up the other side no problem.

SWEET!

Ripping down Upper Chilcoot! L to R: Johann, Carl, Clara, und Hans.

Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. Things are looking SWEET on the slopes – we are 100% OPEN!  I met up with my friends Hans, Clara, Johann, and Carl from Germany. They’ve been coming to the Resort for 11 years. Hans told me the kids have been through all the stages from Treasures to Notch Squad. The kids have also made many friends over the years. Before we met up with them, Hans and I tried out some of the black diamond trails that were groomed for today (Shuttle, Bootlegger, and Upper Pipeline) and they were all awesome! When Johann and Clara finished their lesson with Matt, and Carl finished his with Dara, the five of us went on a quest to the Shire and Bermuda. I have to tell you people, there’s plenty of powder out there.

 

 

 

In addition to the conditions, we have a SWEET weekend coming up with the Maple Open House Weekend!
