No! Winter is not over yet although with the weather we have been having you would have thought so at times. It has been a strange one to say the least. But if you overlook the bottom part of the hill, there is some great snow at the top. While it has been pouring rain at times at the bottom, from the catamount chair up, it has been snowing heavily. Yesterday for April 1, Richard and Patrick joined me for my daily trek up to the top of T2 and we enjoyed some fabulous conditions. It was blowing heavily so the slope was pretty snow loaded. This time of the year there is a variety of conditions as you make your way down to the bottom. But when you have such a long vertical that is understandable.
We are winding down our season with the scheduled closing date April 12th. The resort had announced a bonus weekend for April 16/17 but I suspect that will be cancelled after the weekend is over. The resort has been doing an amazing job keeping a trail of snow all the way to the bottom and have been pushing snow from all over to keep it skiable but I think they may run out of snow soon. You can still take the catamount chair down as an option but not much of one as it is very slow.
But as one season comes to a close we are not that far away from the summer season which begins on May 30th. We are also holding a Yoga Retreat in June. If you are interested in signing up give us a call toll free in Canada at 1 866 944 2622 or 250 344 2622 or email@example.com
