Live it! Love it!

Thursday, July 2, 2015

In the past, I have written about various bittersweet moments. I witnessed yet another one recently as my mountain office came tumbling down. For the past few winters, Lili and I have had an on-mountain sanctuary that looked across Clay Brook to the Super Bravo loading area. Both Rumble and Zoe also enjoyed their winter homes there. However, as sad as it is to lose that spot, it makes way for our new Valley House Chair. The deconstruction of the area is almost complete, and the construction of Doppelmayr's new lift will soon begin so it is ready for opening day.

The Hills are Alive

Tuesday, April 28, 2015

As I have said before, spring, for me, is bittersweet. The skiing has been really good, but the forecast is looking warmer, and the sun will begin stripping the slopes and greening up the golf course. We are looking forward to our final weekend of the 2014/2015 winter season and our kick-off to the summer golf season. We plan to have the front nine open for walking. While still too wet for carts, we are delighted how well the greens fared over the winter.

Valley House Chair Auction

Monday, April 13, 2015

"Which month is it?" A smiling skier asked me as he came off the hill yesterday.  After 20 feet of snow and hardly a melt, the depth on the mountain is still incredible and this weekend we enjoyed sunny skies and temperatures reaching into the 50s.
