Another Powder Day
It was really strange closing the ski area for two days this week. It just didn't seem right. But, under the circumstances, we feel it was the right decision. As it turned out, most of the ski areas in the area made the same decision. Two days of being closed were then followed up by two incredible days to be on the slopes. Yesterday was warmer with blue skis and today was spectacular. I taught a private lesson to a great lady from Owatonna. What should have been a typical beginner/intermediate lesson turned into a powder day lesson...it was awesome. We received more snow here in Welch than the forecasted 4-6 inches. By the time I got out to take some pictures and make some turns it was pretty piled up but in most places. I did find a few areas still untouched and the snow was way over my boots. The snow conditions are just outstanding right now and there is a lot of winter left to get some skiing and riding in. I hope to see you this weekend!
