Getting ready for winter

Dear Ski Friends,
Not much to report about skiing at the moment except that while last night’s storm didn’t provide the snow as predicted, we still have snow in the forecast in the near future.  So we have our fingers crossed and our hopes up high that we will be providing skiing for you in the very near future.
If you are looking for that perfect present for the holidays, we have Gift Certificates available for lessons, trail passes and season passes.  You can find them online at our e-store .
The grooming crew has a new trick up its sleeve.  We have acquired a second ATV to increase our early season grooming capability.  They have also improved the grooming implements for both of the ATV’s so that the grooming will be even better. 
Over the Thanksgiving weekend, skiers had a chance to preview the new section of the Ellis River Trail.  We have some positive feedback about the terrain.  It has made the Ellis River Trail both longer and the mid section harder.  But those who get that far should be able to ski it.
Our next Potluck Dinner with the Annual Silent Sign Auction is scheduled for Dec 17.  My weekly wax clinic on Monday the 12th will focus on getting your skis prepped for the coming season.
Martha Davis will be conducting a Yoga Series on Friday mornings for a warm-up to skiing.  These start on Jan 6th.
I posted on our Facebook page that I am not shaving until we are grooming with Pisten Bullys.  I’m posting a picture a day.  Someone said that I’m starting to look like Sean Connery.
Drive safely on you way,
