This had to be the best closing day EVER! Think blue skies, calm winds, a come thither warmth pervading everyone and everything topped off by kegs of cold beer! It was picture perfect weather with parties going on everywhere on and off the mountain and lots of smiles and great skiing. Whether on your boards, in the bar or sunning on the deck, all was better than well, making it one to go down in the record books. The parties in the upper lots were so good we were still going strong past 7:00 pm in the evening with kegs, ski hucks, Tom The Beard demonstrating proper dirt ski technique, a visit by Captain Powder and a return by the Bald Beaver Ski Crew for their annual Mt. Rose Ski Naked Contest at the end of the day. Catching last chair was about a dozen of us heading down Gregs on perfect rounded bumps in the evening sun, qualifying it for the “Best Last Run Ever in the Universe.” Laughter and smiles were the themes of the day and a good time was had by all in attendance. And just in case you thought that was just the beer talking… here are some pics to prove it!
