A Perfect Day.

Today is a perfect ski day, not a day to be missed!  Blue sky, temps in the teens, perfect classic tracks and nice snow coverage in the backcountry.

First tracks through the woods on Cup- Runneth Over trail.

Backcountry or groomed skiing at your finger tips... two perfect options for today.

Perfect tracks on broadway this morning... great extra blue wax day.
