It was another great weekend of skiing and riding at the Village. It was hard to believe that it was the end of March with hard fast snow and temps. in the 20's. I was truly impressed at the impressive turnout at our annual Pond Skip event. Impressed with the number of spectators and very impressed with amount of participants considering it was about 15 degrees at the start of the event. Our well pump on the east side was not working so we had to fire up the big snowmaking pumps alongside the Cannon River to fill the pond with water. So in essence, all of you pond skippers were skipping over the Cannon River!
This time of year, we literally have to take things one day at a time in determining just how long the snow conditions will hold up. The forecast for this week still appears to be on the chilly side, but a warm up is imminent at the end of the week and into next weekend. We will be operating under usual operating hours this week through Saturday, the 29th but will close at 6pm on Sunday the 30th. We are hoping that by Thursday or Friday, we will make a determination if Sunday the 30th will be the last day for sure.
This will most likely be the last week to take advantage of our pick-a-day weekday and after 4pm ticket deals. It should be a great week to get down here and enjoy all of the snow that we still have.
