What a great weekend. Plenty of sun, warmer temperatures, great snow, and countless people having a great time. This weekend also was opening weekend for spring costume season. I spotted Elvis, a penguin, and other guests wearing entertaining attire on the slopes. We are looking forward to a great week ahead with temperatures in the thirties. We have a ton of snow and a deep snow pack. We are hoping for a slow snow melt in the Welch Valley for two reasons. One, this will lead to an extended season with great skiing conditions. And two, a slow melt will keep the Cannon River away from HWY 7 and the ski area.
