General Comments
Some years when ski season is winding down, you're stuck in the valley with rain, gray sky, and cold weather. Outdoor activities other than skiing just don't appeal. Not this year, no, not at all. This year you can spend Monday through Friday in shortsleeves, with legs bare, soaking in the nourishing effects of sunshine and blue sky. Trails are calling, rivers are calling, and roads are calling your bicycle. If you want to add snow back into that mix, we'll be here for you Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 2pm. Need it sooner? During the week, we will not enforce our no-hiking policy. If you choose to hike in the resort, there will be no assistance available, and there is no hazard marking. We do encourage you to hike elsewhere. Hiking will not be allowed the first two Fridays in May, as we'll be working on the hill. Also, no sledding, okay? Doesn't biking, kayaking, hiking in the woods, or windsurfing sound more fun? Enjoy the beautiful week, and we'll see you Saturday!
