We are opening one of my favorite lifts tomorrow, Motherlode! In my opinion, Motherlode services some of the best terrain on the mountain. There's nothing like the bumps on Fool's Gold or a run down Glory Hole, one of our Signature Runs, after 12 inches of powder have fallen after it was groomed. And new this year, is Motherlode Meadows (it needs another storm before it will open). With all of these options, I'll sure be spending a lot of time on Motherlode lift. Some of you may say, "But Krista, it's not a high-speed lift. It's soooo slow." My response, "After you've been ripping in the bumps your legs appreciate the rest!"

Lower Jonesy's terrain park is also opening tomorrow at 10 am. Features include three jumps and five jib features (two street-style decline rails and three fun-box features). You can check out the terrain park blog here.
I'll see you on the slopes tomorrow. I'll be wearing neon green pants...you know where to find me.
