Last night was a great night for the Sky Tavern Junior Ski Program with several hundred attendees enjoying the art cars, the raffle, auction and of course, the Burning Dude! Although a little shaky getting lit, once going the seemingly invincible Burning Dude did finally succumb to the flames… but not before putting on a pretty good imitation of The Terminator. He obviously learned that tuck from PSIA Professional Mark Helleckson who is constantly telling his students to “get down, get forward”. For those that showed, thanks for supporting a great program.
That was followed by a crystal clear morning, great skiing conditions and much warmer temps on the hill. If there was a downside it was the number of people who showed up creating parking and lift line frustrations. Although almost everyone seemed to be enjoying the early season near perfect conditions… as always, there were a few folks who were, shall we say, a “little tense” in the lift lines or in the parking lot.
I say, relax, you are sliding around on snow in early December top to bottom and its pretty darn awesome. Tomorrow looks to be a repeat of today with some more wind in the pm. Ski you up there!
