Up here at Crystal, it’s been a best-of-times/worst-of-times scenario, in which one day it’s bluebird powder and the next is, well, rain. With the launch of the Photo of the Week post, I’m focusing on the best of times from this past week. While retail stores enjoyed Black Friday, we pegged the awesome-o-meter with a foot of new and called it White Friday at Crystal Mountain. I caught this photo of Crystal owner and General Manager (and all-around awesome guy) John Kircher getting first tracks in Green Valley on Friday. Bravo John.
