This is what a group of Ambassadors look like without their green jackets!



The start of the season had a few struggles and snow makers become heroes.

February brought snow

And trails like Illusion became favorites.

It was snowtime - day after day.

You know it is deep when you have to shovel your roofs.

PJ and Bernie on Ridge




Deb all signed up for the Phat Cat Challenge - and she walks away with 3rd!!

Enough snow for some art at the base of Heavy Metal.

And Patrol looks so unhappy that they will have to ski all this fresh powder.

So much snow we got sick of cleaning off our cars.

So much snow that Thorin was having difficulty getting a waffle.

And as much as February was our snow month, March served up some ice.

March 31 Chris de-icing the Bluebird. Hats off to our lift mechanics.


Our snowmakers were a big help pushing bubbles - yup, it is hard work!


Closing weekend - our Ambassadors otherwise known as the Summit Welcome Wagon.

This blog is dedicated to the folks that keep this resort ticking, day and night.  I only wish I had a photo of each and everyone one of you.  Thank you.  Once again, you make me proud to be part of the Mount Snow family.
