Prepping MGD

 MGD stands for Max (Dercum), (Thor) Groswold and (Dick) Durrance, three of the five original founders of Arapahoe Basin. Those trails are some of the next portions of Montezuma Bowl to open. Further down the ridge from MGD are (Larry) Jump and (Sandy) Schauffler, named for the other two founders.

The Ski Patrol has been very busy in MGD deploying explosives, ski cutting, ski packing and digging snow pits. I am not quite sure when opening day will back here, but we are getting close. This is definitely one of my favorite ski zones at The Basin.
