Looking Back on 13-14

We have been closed a week now. I don't like to spend too much time looking backwards, but the 2013/14 season will certainly bring back glowing memories. So many things happened. We had a good October start to the season. The A-Frame was quite the mess in October and November, but we made up for it by opening the remodeled 6th Alley Bar and Grill in December. The snow fell steadily all season long. January was great and February was even better setting a snowfall record for that month. The spring continued with good snowfall. I attended every Black Mountain Lodge dinner and following each feast I was still overwhelmed by this little valley when I walked down the hill with a brilliant moon lighting up the mountains. The Beach was, well.................The Beach. Avalanches and rock slides blocked the highway here and there prompting me to say, "Again, are you $%&#*! kidding me?" We managed to get through all those Mother Nature challenges. We had a nice June Summer ski season which brings out some of The Basin's best color.

As I look back, my favorite memories are those February powder days in Montezuma Bowl. Skiing the steeps in MGD and West Zuma, getting face shots every turn and feeling nothing but softness underfoot. Literally, those runs were absolutely as good as it gets. I love it.

Now the skiing is closed. The wedding and event season is firing up. The Kids Center construction is underway expecting to pour concrete Monday. 2013/14 was even more than a really good season. Thanks to all of you out there that made the season what it was. We'll be at it again soon.
