Today is a New Day.......

........and tomorrow is a New Year..........but for today, I wanted to update on our conditions.......got through yesterday's temp in the 50's just fine.........closed at 6 pm as planned, opened tubing for a large private group for a couple of hours ........and while that was going on we put the two groomers on the trails.......

.......at 6 pm the temps were dropping fairly quickly........just right.........made the first groom to get air in the top layer of snow......which took about 2.5 hours, then started the process of continuous grooming........and when we shut the cats off this morning at 2 am........I was very pleased with the conditions.........very.......

.......opened at 10 this morning.....as planned.......greeted with a little burst of sleet.......but no rain.....and it looks like we have dodged the bullet as I don't see much behind this little cell that just went over us.......

......we are of course closing at 6 tonight and then reopen at 7 for our four hour Family Friendly (yes, Coal Creek Lounge will be closed during the event) New Years Eve party........ski, snowboard and snow tube for one all inclusive price......plus a slice of pizza or hotdog with soft drink for each ticket holder......some party favors will be handed out at about 10:30 in preparation of watching the "big ball" drop in Times Square on our big screen........

......as needed we will groom starting at 6 pm........but if it doesn't get very warm there is a good chance that won't be required.......

......got more Seven Oaks apparel in again..........new designs.......

..so, to all of you, regardless of your plans tonight, be smart, be safe, be alive tomorrow.......

......see you soon.......
