Photos as promised

The photos in my opinion don't do justice to what the real world is but I don't know how to capture it on'll just have to see it in person to totally appreciate it. This shot was taken from the new unload looking at the entrance to Abby's Alley. You can see we also reshaped the entrance.
This one is a shot looking back from Abbys Alley to the unload. You can see a pole on the left in the foreground, then the big oak tree then another pole. We have made the chair lift unload taller than the pole that was used for the Keaston last year.

and this one is a closer look at the unload.

and here is a shot looking from the entrance to Kenzies Korner looking back at the unload. The different piles of dirt off to the sides is the black dirt that will be spread out and seeded when we get closer to the fall growing season.

Here we are a few feet off the unload looking toward Kenzies Korner and the Central Park trails.

See you on these slopes in a couple months.

Earth work is pretty well done and........

.....we hope all our skiers and riders enjoy it as much as we already do.........we're excited and there isn't even a chairlift installed yet.......and there is no snow yet.........but WOW is it going to be different. When you come off this lift you will ski to anyone of four trails. Best estimate is we made three of the runs about 300 feet longer, new shape, new vertical............come on winter......well come on winter after we get the chair installed.

I would include a photo but I really don't think it would do the CHANGE that has been made justice. It is something you are just going to have to see person.

(see comments) Here is an older picture. The chair will unload now on a new top of trail that is several feet higher than the dump box of the truck in this photo.

Next is getting the profile of the chair line shot so the towers can be engineered.

More later.......see you at the state fair.
