Santa gives a good accounting of Mogul Mouse & Billy Bob Bear. Mogul did not take the cheese, it was Colonel Mustard.
Rockin’ Ron for Hugh. Merry Christmas! Santa took a moment out of his busy schedule to visit Smuggs and hang out with Mogul Mouse and Billy Bob Bear. There was some question about why Mogul was on the “naughty” list. Could it have been the missing cheese?

The forecast called for cloudy skies, but the sun decided to make an appearance. I got to take a couple runs with my wife and all 3 kids this afternoon on Madonna. We had a great time on Upper Chilcoot, Lower Catwalk, Red Fox Glades, and Three Mountain Glades. The snow in the trees was wonderful. We all also enjoyed the Free Family Fun Race on Lower Madonna Liftline. The kids made sure that we always ended our run on Lower Madonna Liftline, so that they could do the race again.
We are 100 percent open with top to bottom skiing and riding on all 3 mountains with all 8 lifts operating. We have all 78 trails open with terrain for all ability levels. Robin’s Run is open from the work road down to Freefall.
