Let it Begin

And so it begins.  The long-awaited, much-hyped 2010-2011 ski season starts tomorrow at Crystal Mountain.  The ski patrol spent the day on the hill putting out bamboo, padding towers and stringing rope.  It is currently snowing lightly and the temperatures are dropping.  The mountain was aflurry today with employees and fun-seekers alike.  My husband spent 12 hours in a snow-cat, preparing the slopes.  We are ready to get started.  Let the games begin.

  1. Rob–Great question. No restrictions at this time. However, this could change with the conditions. If that were to happen, we would put NO HIKING ABOVE THIS POINT signs out in strategic locations. I don’t suspect that will happen this weekend. Today, several people hiked into Hamburger and got nice turns. Consider that backcountry terrain. Rescue, if possible, can be difficult and lengthy.
