Upper lot filled by 9:20 am… wow. There are a LOT of folks skiing Rose in December that don’t usually get up here this time of year. Judging by the crowds, I would say the lift, parking, patrol and ski school staff should get a hefty Christmas Bonus…
Windy today and the snow warmed up enough yesterday to be little less palatable… check lift status before you come on up. NW was moving pretty slowly first thing this morning. So… skiing was pretty pretty pretty good-nothing more, nothing less. Skier traffic over the weekend has definitely uncovered some decomposing granite in spots and rocks in others. Until you know the run, ski a little cautiously… or don’t they are YOUR skis and boards.
BTW: Unofficial’s first contender for Nice Guy of the Year Award goes to Don Smith of Smith Video. If you need a video made, he is your man!
