Friday night is our October Friday after Five in the Lodge.........and it seems with the temps being called for on friday night the action WILL be IN the lodge and not so much on the patio........but WOW with these temps dropping it really feels like winter is approaching doesn't it!
Have had a few of you respond on the colors you would like to see in our Seven Oaks shirts and sweatshirts this winter........appreciate it...........any more of you have a preference?
Staff has been busy giving a few walls fresh coats of paint this week .........looks good.
And the paintball groups are really hoppin now with the cooler temps too.

The snow and conditions are going to be just as great on those evenings as any other......we groom daily.........and if you are remotely close to Seven Oaks, we don't think you can beat four or five hours on the snow for just TEN BUCKS. We are serious about making sure winter recreation is affordable and available for everyone!
The new season is just around the corner........can't wait........although with this unseasonably warm Sunday it is pretty nice so I am signing off and going outdoors........
Til then, think snow!

It all started Friday night with about 200 attending our first friday of the month Friday after Five. Then ........over the next three days we had right at 500 people on the river enjoying tubing, canoeing and kayaking. There were also lots of folks in the campground.......weather was sweeet for camping too.
On Saturday the lawn all around both chair lift bases was covered........no really covered.......with tents, campers, cars and people as the Seventh Annual 24-Hour Mountain Bike Race started at noon. Then at 5:30 pm a wedding reception consisting of about 260 occupied the lodge and the patio for their great party.
Saturday night at midnight was the traditional hour long chairlift rides and pasta feed for all the bikers and their support teams. Breakfast at 7 am for the bikers.........and the race finished at noon on Sunday........followed by the awards ceremony in the lodge.
People were coming and going all weekend and I didn't know if I was coming or going! But it was fantastic, the weather as said before was perfect, everyone had a good time and the Seven Oaks staff did a wonderful job facilitating it all.
Check out our new ski page with changing pics..........I think Joel's intent is to add pics to each page. I like it.
We still have several more paintball groups on the books for this month - one is a group of 50 Marines.....and a lot more wedding receptions in the Lodge too. A variety of other meetings and meals are scheduled as well........so it looks like we'll remain busy. Our full service river floats will continue thru September and October. Several of the staff are going to start sneaking out for some days off as we get in the slightly slower period and before we get into the full swing of winter.
Remember the season pass sale and swap is Sunday October 18 from 9 am to 5 pm.
Enjoy the balance of the summer and fall..........we'll be making snow before you know it. Can't wait.....it's my favorite. Oh yeah, just to clarify.....that was ole man Rick doing the parasailing!
