And the Grand Finale...

This is our Skier Appreciation Weekend with free pancakes and fresh natural maple syrup from Maple Knoll Farms out at the Sugar House Warming Hut on Saturday, and Grillin' and Chillin' on the Ski Center deck Sunday.  Hamburgers & hotdogs off the grill and beer available on the deck from 11:30am to 3pm  (We invite our current Season Pass Holders to join us for a free lunch).  With the great snow conditions we have once again, we're very happy that so many people are taking the opportunity to enjoy the March snow and having such a great time with us!

Another snowy day down at Harvey's Tailings  (3/19) 

The Sugar House was hopping on Saturday 3/23 with free pancakes and fresh maple syrup

 Mindy was the cooking ace on the pancake grill at the Sugarhouse

There were plenty of buttermilk pancakes to go around 

The Out Of Control Ski Group visited us as well and had a great time

On March 16th the Girl scout Troop from North Creek came and snowshoed out to the Sugar House and learned a lot about trees and animals in the winter forest.

 On St. Patty's Day weekend, Mindy's son Blake had a ski party with his friends. 
 (He's third from the left).

And this Birthday Party was a nice surprise for the Birthday girl, Carol after a big day on our trails.

Snow Season Continues

We honestly thought the ski season would be pretty much wrapping up this week, what with the rain and all, but that is not the case.  The rain did not deplete our snow base to any great extent, all the trails are still well covered, and more snow showers are falling as we speak.
Once the winter season ends, as it inevitably will, we will start to work on the trails once again to clean them more and widen them.  We will also be doing work on the signage to bring things up to date.
Same goes for the rest of the Lodge buildings and grounds.
But in the meantime, we'll continue to enjoy the winter we're having.

 The view from the Log House is still spectacular

The Trails are still 100% covered in very skiable snow

Looking up on 4H Trail near Old Faithful

 Ivy has been doing a great job in the Ski Shop taking care of everything and making everybody happy.

 The snowshoeing has been very active and successful this year as well.  
Snowshoeing up to Hooper Mine
 We even had a small wedding party gathered around a winter campfire for their ceremony
