Just as I Predicted….

It has been sort of a strange ski season as far as the weather man is concerned. A little bit of snow in November. Enough to open the mountain and that’s pretty typical. December was brutally cold. January was unusually warm. February started out as January and that’s when I made my prediction. Late season snow will be here at the end of the month and it will snow until the Mountain closes.

I would be exaggerating if that is what has happened, but not by much. We are definitely getting our share of spits and dumps and along with it, some beautiful sunny days. I have’nt talked to anyone that is complaining about the conditions because there is nothing to complain about.

I went out yesterday for a couple of hours and road the chair with a nice couple from New York. She asked me “Aren’t you the guy that predicted perfect conditions for March and April?” “Yes, that’s me” I replied as humbly as I’m capable.

“It doesn’t get any better than this” he said. “I don’t think we ever have been disappointed coming here”.

His wife asked if I had any thoughts about a good place to eat in town. I told her I was not in the habit of suggesting culinary delights. I am after all, “only a simple weatherman who predicts the future”. (Although I did mention the bowling alley for some great tuna spears).

Come join us for the best conditions of the year.  I predict you will not be disappointed.  Greg
