Greetings friends, I hope this post finds you doing well. I am in a snow daze. It has been an amazing season so far. We’ve been blessed with boatloads of snow and many many bluebird days. But what’s even more exciting than all the snowfall is all of the great people I have had a chance to meet. I have crossed paths, ridden chair lifts, and shared a run with old friends and new. Crossing the mountain with folks that share my same love of the outdoors is always the most rewarding thing! Seeing happy faces and smiles ear to ear really does make my day. The proof is in the pictures; smiles and happy faces all around. Enjoy the pics.

No thank you. And to all of you who send me thanks all the time, know I couldn’t do it without all of you. Thanks again for sending in any feedback.



It snowed last night, a tad today and more is on the way. Mammoth is still digging out from snow, like 8 feet of it last week. Conditions are great right now. Pretty much every lift and and run is open everywhere. Coverage is great with a very high snow quality in most places. With more snow predicted it’s only gonna continue to get better. Get out on the slopes and check it it.
