Al's Blog: A Good Freeze arapahoebasin.blogspot.com Much better. We had a good freeze last night with the temperature getting down to 15 F. The next few days look much more like March with lows in the teens or twenties and highs in the mid thirties to low forties. During an afternoon ski I found all kinds of good snow on Larkspur, The East Wall, Slalom Slope, and Sundance. An after work skin to the top of Zuma Lift capped off a beautiful day. I love the long afternoons of Spring and Daylight Savings Time.
Al's Blog: Amazing Employees arapahoebasin.blogspot.com This evening we threw a little employee shindig in The 6th Alley. A few times during the season each manager recognizes the "Amazing Employees" in his/her department. Some of the comments are serious. Some are quite fun. Lift Ops Manager, Ben Morton, even writes a Haiku about each of his Amazing Employees. The F and B crew puts some food together for everyone. As you can imagine, it is quite fun. As I was leaving, I took a peak up at The East Wall just as the late day light was making it shine. No doubt this unseasonably warm weather has curtailed the hiking up there a bit. Tonight temperatures should drop into the teens and get us back to a more recognizable rhythm. Top that with a little snow and we should be back to normal soon.
