Retro outfits

Today was just amazing with new snow and beautiful sunny skies. I had a wonderful day skiing with my daughter Hannah. We did a three mountain tour.We started on Morse and then skied over to Madonna Mountain. We took a run on Drifter which was groomed last night. The snow was great and the views were even better. We found a bunch of fresh snow on the side of the trail to play in. We headed to Sterling Mountain next. Hannah really likes Thomke’s because of the way the trail cuts back and forth. We also like to check on the beautiful ice flow, which is on skier’s right before the short cut to Bootleggers. We then headed back to the Village for lunch. Hannah wanted to go to the Log Jam Terrain Park next located over at Morse Highlands.


Lori from Connecticut and I on the Mogul Mouse Lift

My son Hugh B joined us and we rode the Mogul Mouse Magic Lift. I rode single and was lucky enough to meet Lori from Connecticut. Lori and her family are homeowners here at Smuggs.  Their children are in our Mitey Mite Program. They make the trip up from Connecticut every weekend! I want to thank Lori and her family for their commitment.  I also want to thank them for choosing Smuggs. Lori told me that there are many resorts that are, of course, a lot closer to them, but they just love Smuggs and it worth the drive!
