It’s that time of the year when skiers, snowboarders, ski resort operators and those who ride fat bikes start to dream, salivate, and pray for snow. We check the weather report every half hour, ensure our winter gear is ready to go at a moment’s notice, our “I’m to sick to work” excuse is rehearsed and ready for that first powder day.
We’re offering payers and sacrifices to the snow gods Ullr and The Griz.
This year it looks like those prayers and sacrifices have been heard. Resorts are opening as early as this week!
