Our 10th Season winter season came to a close yesterday. And what a closing day it was. Wow!!! The skiing was fabulous as a group of us did the hike to T2 one last time where we found 10 cms of nice powder skiing. A friend Terry who is pictured here did it for the first time and loved it. It is an adventure and a great accomplishment as it is not an easy climb at the best of times.
And even the bottom part where it was considerably warmer was still nice. I have never seen such great conditions to end the season and this was our latest closing date ever.
A tradition here at Vagabond Lodge is a pot-luck dinner with a group of friends here on the hill and in Golden. We must have had about 40 people show up with some great food and great conversation. A fun way to end the year.
Now we have a few weeks break and get ready for the summer season. Vagabond Lodge will reopen on May 16 for our Long weekend in Canada which is called Victoria Day. Golden is hosting it's first ever Golden Mountain Festival and will be showcasing the "Swiss Guides" who were a big part of the history of this area.
