Sterling and Mount Mansfield
I ran into my good friend Phil and his son James in Lot #1 this morning. We did some cruiser runs on Madonna and Sterling. It was great to catch up and make some turns together.

Sterling and Mount Mansfield
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
