Finally got up to the Pass, and heard a few rumors, so why not spread 'em around?
The ski area has built a new rail park over at the edge of Summit by Julie Chair. They are planning a "jib fest" for next Saturday, apparently with the belief it will snow two feet this week. We can hope.
The ski area plans to open Summit on Saturday, December 12th. We can hope.
We visited Commonwealth for a meal. The place was packed, there are some cool new items on the menu, and the service was competent and friendly. If you haven't been in there lately, it might we worth a quick look.
A couple of real estate deals have popped recently, at record prices. It seems like maybe some of the mad money down in the flatlands is seeping up the hill.
To my mind, the biggest deal this season will be being able to stand around at the top of the Rampart chair and have a conversation without shouting to be heard above that howling diesel gen set.
Waxy side down, brothers and sisters. See you out there!
