OK, a lot of terrain is about to open. There is a great deal of work involved and sometimes it is hard to predict exactly how long that will take. Typically, when I am vague with my answers about "when", I usually do not know exactly when some things will be ready. When you throw in the weather, snowmaking, avalanches, people, grooming, etc., the variables really add up. So, today is a good day with Lenawee Parks and a few other spots open. Tomorrow morning we will be opening the rest of our green terrain. I think tomorrow afternoon there may be some nice ski treats, maybe on the West Side. If the 24 hours go as planned, we may have some uphill access news also. So, stay tuned. Watch the website, or even better, get up here and go skiing.
There are no secrets here. Simply, opening trails up takes some time and some snow. The absolute best part of my job is getting terrain open and watching people having fun skiing and riding that terrain.
