Thanks to everyone who came out today and yesterday and had fun in spite of the lack luster conditions.
The rain last night and this morning really did a number on what little snow we had. As a result I couldn't put a snowcat on it tonight to repair any of the bomb holes. We MIGHT get a small 3-4 hour snowmaking window after 3am this morning. If we don't I won't be able to do any more grooming until much colder weather returns. We will do what we can as far as patching things together by hand but we might have to close later this week if the weather does not improve.
Thanks again to everyone for coming out, having fun and being patient as we do our best to get this season underway.
They should just have a whole section devoted to rails...longest slide, styliest slide, most technical slide...just get like a 200 foot rail and have people hit it going mach looney, that would be great. -wntrwill on the X-Games-
ESCALADE ON SPINNERS!
lol, I woulda been there tomorrow if I hadn't missed my flight.... I prob would have been there today and tuesday as well b/c as it turns out, I missed my flight by 2 days. How does one do this you ask? well if you want to learn the finer points of missing your points by multiple days and arguing with the check-in you can pm me, but I can't promise any results, I still had to pay for another ticket.
be back in your part of the country tomorrow, hopefully
the patch has been patched! I'll update later today if we are closing tomorrow. Looks like real good snowmaking sunday thru wed so we'll be back in business in no time!
we have to pull them other wise it will be POACHER FEST 2008. To many sue happy people these days, can't take the chance of someone getting wrecked...plus we have to preserve what little snow we have so when snowmaking resumes we can hit the ground running and get back open for real this time.
That september storm was ridiculous, if only we could have had it now. I remember driving through the pass to Reno when it was real bad thinking "what the hell? Its barely the end of summer"
It gave me high hopes for an early season but it didn't turn out that way. If all the snow we have is the Boreal patch by winter break I'll probably become an alcoholic. Props to you guys for giving us something to ski on with barely anything to work with.
