After a couple days off I am back on the uphill game. 🎿 Our Sunday/Monday storm ended up being more of a dud than anything, so you didn't miss much there. Today was my first day back out and I was pleasantly surprised. It was Hannah, Riley, Joe and I out there this morning and we were not disappointed.

We had met at 6 a.m. in the parking lot, which was buzzing with the noise of compressors, which meant snowmaking was going on in full force, always a good sign. 🔫 As we made our way up in the dark, the snow flurries rolled in, and the sun lit the sky. Today was an interesting one; we had cloud coverage just above the horizon, so we could catch the sunrise, and then it looked like it was setting upside down. ⛅️ I've spent 5 minutes trying to describe this coherently, but I can't, so you will have to take my word for it; it was cool and trippy... Anyway, we had a great hike up and saw some fellow uphillers getting after it bright and early. Hannah had to get to work, so she had her skins off and was out of there before the rest of us were ready to enjoy the downhill. ⛷️

Today's downhill was pretty good; we had some great groomers, with a few spots still recovering from the rain we received earlier in the week. ☔️ All in all, I was impressed with the coverage we had after the amount of rain we received, and it was great to see the snowmaking team out there opening up more terrain for us. Jolly Green Giant had some action along with some other areas, so expect some new trails coming online for this weekend! 🥳
Pro Tip: Wear Sunscreen! I was at the dermatologist yesterday and needed to get a couple spots taken care of. The sun reflects on the snow and can be worse than summer days for UV exposure.
Our friends at The Boot Pro will be hosting a Free Demo Day next week! 🎿 If you are interested in some new gear or just want to test out this year's hot new skis, you don't want to miss it. You can register online here. We hope to see you there!
