General Comments
Good afternoon! It's been a rough and rather snowless season here at Meadows, and we've been contemplating plans for the exposed grassy slopes. We realized that grass is food, so we brought up animals and opened a petting zoo. Sure, today's a powder day, with 5" overnight and 8" in the last 24 hours. Yes, you've been waiting for this: face shots and packed powder groom. But really, who needs fresh tracks when you can visit our wildlife park and pet cows, sheep, alpacas, forest beavers, giraffes, dodos, snowy owls, triceratops, woolly mammoths and saber-toothed tigers (don't worry - we're keeping those tigers on leashes). We're hoping our fences are strong enough to keep the animals off the slopes, but if not, well, you can just practice for this weekend's Full Sail Banked Slalom by weaving among the wee beasties finding face shots and fresh tracks. Meadows: making the most of a dry year and the best powder day of the season. Come on up! (p.s. April Fools' on the zoo - the powder's for real.)
