Wow. What a year! On this exact date a year ago there was over 300 inches of snow on the ground and it would continue to fall throughout the spring. When all was said and done we’d enjoyed 40+ powder days (6” or more constitutes as a powder day for those of you who are wondering where we get that number) and 763” of snow throughout the winter.
Fast-forward to today and it is a far different story. We are rocking an 18” base and working around the clock to open as much terrain for our guests as possible. What a difference a year makes huh?
After a few hot laps today it dawned on me. Although the waist deep powder days are magical and 63 feet of snow is nice that’s not what it is about and nothing exemplifies this like the season thus far.
18” may not be a whole lot but I’ll tell you what it’s enough to put a smile on your face and realize just how lucky we are. After all, isn’t skiing or riding about having a good time, enjoying the crisp mountain air, taking in the amazing Sierra mountains, laughing with your friends and having a “soda” or two? I sure think so. If you don’t believe me come try it out for yourself.
Cheers to the year that was and another amazing one that is to come. See you on the mountain.
