I'm back! After a few weeks away from the office, things finally are looking like summer, even though it did snow a few inches just a week ago. But now the weather forecast is calling for temps near 90 for this weekend - I think that we may have skipped spring and gone directly to summer. Even so, many of the higher elevation trails are still snow covered and very muddy in other spots so please keep off them until they have a chance to dry out. A great resource to check out current trail conditions is the Mountain Trails Foundation's website at www.mountaintrails.org. We'll try to drop in an update here and there in our posts, but those guys are out and about everyday while I'm stuck inside the office ;) The really cool news is that while I've been out and about for the past few weeks, our ops folks have been hard at work getting rolling with our summer projects, check out a few photos of the new lift! The new Crescent lift line has been started, look to the left top part of the ridge, just next to the snow (Ski Team Lift on the right side of the photo).
Lift sections are already arriving (thanks for not parking in the lower part of the First Time parking lot)!
Keep checking back as I promise to post lots of photos of the new lift and our other summer improvements as things progress.
