The first day of the New Year usually brings hope and renewal to people’s lives.

A chance to leave small, unwanted pieces behind and adopt healthy change.

Here is my new perspective;  I love skiing powder.  Pretty simple, right? Who doesn’t?

Working in the ski industry has allowed me to ski more un-tracked lines than I probably deserve; it is what I love.

The days and weeks that produce no new snow sometimes get me down.  Not anymore.  From now on, I am looking at things from a different, more sunny perspective.  Skiing is amazing, in any condition, any terrain, any weather.  It’s with this fresh perspective that I share some of the more beautiful things I found around the mountain today.

So we will trade in our flip flops and sunglasses for  ski boots and goggles to enjoy the powder paradise on the slopes.  Below are a few photos to show you what I mean.

With the last day of Winter upon us and Spring just ahead some of you may be looking forward to many different things.  Playing golf, planting a garden, hiking, camping and a host of other activities.

Here at the mountain we are looking forward to more “Winter” in Spring.  We have had just under 30″ of new snow this week and much more in the forecast.  Cold overnight temperatures have softened the snow and new snow is on the horizon.  Here are a few photos of today’s slopes and what you can expect from the mountain.
