Busy days ahead

Yesterday was great at Seven Oaks. Don't know that I have EVER seen the snow deeper or in better shape than it is right now.

Groomed all the trails into late last night so I could sleep in a little this morning......til 7 am........then groomed tubing.......followed by breakfast for all the NSPS volunteers and employees that wanted to come in for a meal at 9 am ........ Yep, the snow was awesome last night grooming as well. It actually started to snow ......pretty light.......but snow none the less at about 11 pm and was still snowing when I shut down at 1 am this morning....

Wow and the forecast for today, tonight and tomorrow.......MORE SNOW......see the December 7, 2009 blog post if you want to know why the snow just keeps coming. Love it...

Let's see....here's how the next couple of days.....or weeks look at Seven Oaks......open today til 8 pm........lots of folks here enjoying themselves as I write........

.....then this coming Wednesday, Thursday and Friday we have schools on site each day...actually it's two schools on friday....one during the day and another one at night........open friday night as usual.......don't actually know what is planned for entertainment friday night in the lodge........

.....then a busy day Saturday.......and our last scheduled Late Nite for the season is this coming Saturday night.......February 13......and there is some talk of a slope style competition during the Late Nite event..........then........normal Sunday open from 11am to 8 pm....

...and Monday February 15 we are open from 10am to 6 pm for Presidents Day.........and a couple schools coming that day as well........and we are offering as special deal for all Home School families on Presidents Day too........

......and I should also mention that Saturday and Sunday February 20 & 21 are our Armed Forces Day.......specials for all those men and women in the military......and their families......our way of honoring their service and sacrafice to this great country of ours.......and again we are asking all staff and visitors to wear your red, white and blue that weekend as well.......

Starting to kick around the ideas for the Fourth Annual Spring Splash with pond skim........more on that later........do you have any ideas you want us to consider???

Nothing but great comments on the new huge jump that was built last Tuesday......thanks Ken and Joel and staff for putting that together........

........so let's end with.......how much snow do you think we will get today, tonight and Monday......some say 6".......some say 8".......and others say as much as 10"........again........see the December 7 blog post .......

have a good day......

I'll be optimistic and say 10 inches. Brought out some first time skiers last Thursday and they loved it so much that we're coming back this Thurs.
