With another beerfest almost under our wing, I am taking a few minutes to rest my feet and thank everyone for coming out. What a fantastic weekend - we are lucky to have a group of attendants who know how to have a good time, without going too far. Thanks!!!
I really like riding the chairlift in the summer because you get to see the people on the other side. Most of the time it is a simple wave and "hello" but a lot of time the group is deep in conversation and they don't even see you. On such occasions, you can't help but eavesdrop. Here are some of my favorite quotes from the weekend. Promise, I am not making this stuff up.
"Oh, I see the yellow..."
"This is so much better than the beach" (my personal favorite)
"My dream was to buy a place up here so..."
"Look the yellow one, chair 50"
"Is that a bra in that tree?"
On one of my trips I was in chair 47 so it was fun to see the kids light up when they saw it.
I will leave you with a few photos. Sorry, I did not get around to get a lot of the great t-shirts. Luckily, our marketing department did and there has been nice coverage on social media.
See you all at Octoberfest!
2nd Annual Hops for Hope started off the weekend and raised a whole lot of $$ to kick cancer's can!
Even the babies were concentrating on that finish line!
Meanwhile back at the Main Base, Steph and Dave tested each and every adirondack chair and said they were Beerfest worthy.
The festival gates opened and I immediately saw some cool t-shirts. I asked her if she would walk on his left side all day long and she said she would try!
Thanks to Jason and Dennis in Lifts - they built this giant game board. This would be cool as a floor in my house. Hmmmmm.
As Saturday progressed things were heating up with The Jeff Tuohy Band and the solar kind. I'd say this qualifies as a decent crowd.
Speaking of Mr. Tuohy - that boy can rock!
Up at the summit our snowmaking valve house/snowmakers and ambassador building is taking shape.
At the end of the event we test the chairs again. Just to make sure they are ready for Day #2. Good Job Brian!
