Thanks For Joining Us

Thanks to all of you that joined us today.  While the clouds have moved in a bit lately, most of the day was beautiful with blue skies.  It was a little bit busy, but spirits were high.  The snow quality was equally good. Ramrod should open soon and the Upper Mountain will follow soon after.  Somehow, our guests managed to find the temporary bar in the A-Frame.

There has been a lot of discussion and questions about opening weekday or weekend.  Ideally, we like to open on a weekday, giving us a chance to "ease" into the season.  Obviously, we were ready to roll today (Sunday) and opted to open.  We would never remain closed on a weekend if we were ready.  I enjoyed all the discussion others wrote about our opening strategy.  I can really simplify it, "Our objective is to open as soon as the snow and all of our operations are ready, weekday or weekend doesn't matter."

Thanks for skiing and riding The Basin.

Thanks so much for opening yesterday. It was fun to be there, especially since I was there for the last day in June.

Loooking forward to quicker laps this week, and to Chef Chris' brisket, which I consider to be "the best BBQ in Co."

Despite loads of waiting (mug club -> pass -> lift line) I had a ton of fun. As someone who has longed for a mug for years but is stuck in weekend warrior-land, I was really excited to get one and for a weekend opening. Great day, and a great start to the season! Thanks Al and Crew!
