We were glad to hear that all of you in the Twin Cities area and points north received snow this week. Here in Welch we received precipitation but it wasn't always in the form of snow. We were right on the mixed/rain/snow/whatever line for two days. What we are receiving now is cold weather for an extended period of days which will enable us to make an incredible amount of snow. This will help us build our base for most of the season ahead and freshen things up a bit around here. If you dress warm, weather like this makes for great turns on the corduroy. We will be opening some more runs this weekend including the Dike's run and the #5 Triple Chairlift on the East Side. We will also open Dud's Dream, Sweeny and Leapin Liz. There will be a lot of snow made in the Back Bowl the next few days, we'll keep you posted there. For those of you who have little ones, we are getting closer to opening the magic carpet area. Remember, the magic carpet runs during lessons only. See you this weekend! Looks like we might get some snow on Sunday.
