    Well, I just took my first couple of ski runs for the season. Had to do that final check before opening, if you know what I mean. 

    To get things started, as I was riding Black Mountain Express, I saw a moose in the woods just West of Tower 5. Maybe if you are lucky tomorrow, you might spot this gal. If you do, be sure and stay far, far away. Always give a moose as much room as possible.

    The Terrain Park crew is prepping four features. I am not sure what they will be just yet, but those guys are creative. I am sure it will be fun.

    The snow on High Noon is excellent. The corduroy was fantastic. I had a blast. It feels good to get the legs moving in a new direction. I look forward to seeing many of you soon. Here's to a great season.

    Even with all the excitement of opening tomorrow, we are still working hard at getting the Beavers Chairlift finished. The wire rope will be installed over the next couple of days and the rope splice will occur early next week. Soon after the splice, the carriers (the chairs) will be attached to the line. Throughout all of this, there is a lot of work being done by the electricians. We anticipate the Acceptance Test (Load Test) to be completed the first week of November. That gives us plenty of time for a Beavers Chairlift December opening.

    See you skiing in the morning.

    So yesterday, after we had announced the opening, I was out and about trying to figure out what to do next. I looked up and saw this paraglider way, way, way up there in the sky. I said "Cool" and went back to work. Well, today I received this email and photo from an old friend, Robert Stone, aka "Stoney." What an image !!! Wow. That ski area looks ready to open.
