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
