Montezuma Bowl is open. There is always excitement when people have a new place to ski and ride. It was very wintry at The Basin today. The sun sort of popped out for about 4 minutes. The rest the time we had light, but steady snowfall. There were plenty of smiles to be found in Zuma. I like the way the forecast is shaping up, snow Thursday and Friday and sunshine Saturday and Sunday for the Holiday weekend. I tend to think of President's Weekend as the first unofficial hint of spring. It will definitely still be winter, but the days are a little longer and "The Beach" is usually going off.
