Comments: Good Morning. In order to keep the freezing levels low I need you to join in and practice the “Right Way” snowmaking technique. This technique is simple but must be followed entirely for three days. You must put on every piece of footwear starting with the right foot first; sock, shoe, ski boot, ski. Exceptions to rule which will not affect freezing levels include regular footed snowboarders strapping their left foot into binding, and right foot amputees. Just in case some of you refuse or forget to participate, or forget, I will be flushing numerous ice cubes down the drain. Friday is a NID day for our school kids, the Shames Express bus will be running Today, leaving from coperside west next to Boston Pizza with a special guest Bus Driver. Saturday is CSP day, so join our patrollers for a number of activities. Sunday is Avalanche Awareness day. Saturday and Sunday will also be another one of our mini rippers races. And of course, Monday, is Family Day where we will be offering 50% off lift tickets and doing a number of other activities. Our lifts run from 9am-3:30pm until March. The Shames Express Bus will operate both Saturdays and Sundays until the end of the season. Tickets are $10 return and the bus leaves from the Copperside next to Boston Pizza at 8am. This is Our Mountain, Come Join Us!
